It took me a little while to be captured by Still Missing. I read Room not too long ago, and I thought it was going to be another captive story. I wasn't prepared to listen to a whole book about this poor girl's captivity. But the story changed and that was when it really got interesting to me. The ending was sort of a surprise and it kept me listening. I thought the narrator did a good job. This was an entertaining listen and I'm glad I selected it.
Yes. Actually, my ipod is on auto-repeat and I found myself listening to it again. Sometimes it is easy to get wrapped up in "what's going to happen next?" Listening again would really allow you to get to know the characters.
The final conversation between Annie and her mother... it's like you can see Annie healing.
The first part of the book seemed so real that it was almost uncomfortable and painful to listed too... i cried a lot towards the middle of the book. However, by that point, you were really hoping for a resolution for Annie.
Say something about yourself!
Didn't read it, only listen to books and this one was a WINNER
LOVED everything about this book
Angela Dawe was incredible. She nailed this book
Too many to name
The prose is just right -- author pulls me into the story and keeps me there with concise, perceptive writing.
The narrator was just faantastic. Perfect for the character and the difficult task of conveying a compelling nightmare in a first-person format.
I would liken this to Gillian Flynn's writing. Dark, creepy thriller. I couldn't stop listening! I think I finished this one in one day I liked it so much! Great book!
I started listening to them at night to help me sleep. Now I listen to them everywhere I go. I love them and tell everyone I know about them
Yes, I would.
I found that I could not put it down. I listened to it twice.
Rural Mail Carrier with an awesome husband and 3 fantastic kids!
I enjoyed this story and found the presentation as a narrative to a "psychiatrist" whom we are never really introduced to or hear from to be quite unique. The way the story unfolds is surprising and heartwrenching. The ending is perfect...it doesn't dredge on, but is neatlly wrapped up. The narration is excellent with all the characters distinguishable from one another and the inflection and emotions believable.
the way it was told in first party,..
the whole story keep me going wanting more
I hope that Chevy Stevens keeps it up with other books like this. It is a new experience in listening.
I was pretty interested in this story, but when I realized how the author was going to end it, I became really disinterested... I liked the characters though..
intriguing, kept me interested, well narrated
Yes, changed directions often enough to be believable yet unexpected.
Good diction and inflections when needed.
