Still Me by Jojo Moyes

Louisa Clark and her life post-Will Traynor, part 2. For those of you who haven't read Me Before You and After You, Louisa Clark is a pretty ordinary, if somewhat aimless and jobless person until she takes on the challenge of caring for Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. This changes her life completely, and it's the way Will torments her, talks her into greater things and won't settle for anything less than best when it come to her that makes that story and the one after what it was.

For those of you who love Louisa as much as I do, did, and probably will until she takes her last breath, this is a treat. For me, unexpected. (It's intimidating having to write a follow up to Me Before You, and must be even more so to follow After You). I thought that Louisa Clark was interesting, but it was her life with Will (and even just post-Will) that made me want to read about her. Yet the genius of Jojo shines here - there was more to tell, Lou's deeper than that - and I enjoyed finally moving on with her. And she's not that uninteresting either. Also we can't forget Ambulance Sam who we've met before, and Lou's new life in New York, amongst the wealthy and the very wealthy. 

Enough now, though. Thanks for the closure, we can all move on.
