Publisher's Summary

Beautiful, happily married, and the owner of a successful interior design business, Casey Marshall couldn't be more content with her life, until a car slams into her at almost 50 miles an hour, breaking nearly every bone in her body and plunging her into a coma.

Lying in her hospital bed, Casey realizes that although she is unable to see or communicate, she can hear everything. She quickly discovers that her friends aren't necessarily the people she thought them to be - and that her accident might not have been an accident at all. As she struggles to break free from her living death, she begins to wonder if what lies ahead could be even worse.

    I am a fiber artist and teacher. I love moderate action, plot twists, diverse characters and much romance.

    "Good Enough To Replace Stolen CDS!"

    I was about a third of the way into listening to a set of CDs my friend loaned me when my car got broken into and the thief stole the CDS (HA! S/he only got half the book I had taken some into the house!). Anyhow, there I was trying to decide if it was worth a credit to get it on audible. I thought it might be too silly, but I am glad I did. It was well narrated and suspenseful. A good twist on the thriller genre, and not gory at all. I can't really say much more for fear of spoiling. A good listen; well worth a credit even if you only need half of it!

    Story
    "Spellbinding!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Possibly the best book I have listened to (or read) in recent memory. The story just will not let you go so you listen for just a little more .. and a little more .. until you have lost track of time. I would not hesitate to recommend it my friends.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Still Life: A Novel?

    So hard to choose without revealing too much - just imagine writing from the perspective of a woman in a coma, hearing everything going around her, trying to separate reality from imagination.


    What about Kymberly Dakin’s performance did you like?

    Kymberly Dakin's narration makes each character unique. There is no mistaking who is speaking and subtle changes in her voice let you know exactly what lies beneath the words.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Casey realizes who is responsible for her being in the coma.


    Any additional comments?

    I will definitely listen to the book again even knowing the answers to all the questions.

    "my first Fielding"

    This story is a very slow start but once it gets going...wow! The narrator was a hit as well.

    "So-So"

    The book is ok. It delves mostly into the womans history of how her family dynamics became what they are today. I figured out the ending pretty much toward the beginning of the book but kept listening anyway. I thought there would be some great twists and turns in the story because I had read that Joy Fielding books have twists. Never happened. It would be a good book for someone who likes the standard very light suspense book. Just not for me.

    "another one of Joys great writing"

    even though at times it seem to slow down... the story kept you engaged. Some is predictable and some is not. Over all this is a good read.

    Boring and melodramatic. Stupid plot.
