Audible Editor Reviews

Annie O’Sullivan is your average 32-year-old successful businesswoman. She owns a large Victorian home, is up for a big project at her real estate firm, and has a doting boyfriend, loyal golden retriever, and a core group of close friends and family. But, she’s also got a major chip on her shoulder.

After being abducted from her last open house and held captive for an entire year by a psychopathic man named David, the former Annie is Still Missing — and still seeking answers about the deliberateness of her disappearance.

Chevy Stevens’ breakout book, Still Missing, narrated by Angela Dawe, explores the inner workings of the human mind when it’s nearly past redemption.

Set up as a first-person account divided into 26 therapy sessions, Annie vividly depicts a mixture of ghastly memories as a captive in the windowless seclusion of a small log cabin with her present-day demons — sleeping in the closet and timed urination.

The novel itself is stanch, but it is Dawe’s flippant, no-nonsense tone that brilliantly enacts Steven’s rigid, exact language, revealing Annie from the very beginning. In fact, Dawe’s performance so flawlessly portrays the shrewd, rough-and-tumble, yet angst-ridden young woman, you often forget you’re listening to a work of fiction.

Similarly, Dawe has no trouble transitioning to the deeply disturbed David, the mild-mannered boyfriend, or the overbearing, overdone mother. Regardless of character, her performance is seamless, creating an unrivaled listening experience.

A frighteningly intense tale of abuse, hope, betrayal, and the struggle to live on after epic devastation, Chevy Stevens’ Still Missing is an in-your-face rollercoaster ride of emotion that will leave listeners lining up again. —Sarah Zimmerman

Publisher's Summary

On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old Realtor, had three goals: sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent captive in a remote mountain cabin — which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist — is a second narrative recounting the nightmare that follows her escape: her struggle to piece her shattered life back together, the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor, and the disturbing sense that things are far from over.

The truth doesn’t always set you free.

Still Missing is a shocking, visceral, brutal, and beautifully crafted debut novel about surviving the unsurvivable — and living to bear witness.

What the Critics Say

"The intense plot alternates between Annie's creepy confinement, her escape, and her attempts to readjust to real life, from going to the bathroom when she wants to managing her own meals. Still, Annie knows that a large part of her soul is still missing. Her transformation from victim adds to the believability of the enthralling plot." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Still hooked!"
    Where does Still Missing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best stories I've listened to since joining Audible in 2009.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character Annie is my favorite. Feels like a real human being and not some made up cartoon. She has the same fears, feelings and thoughts that a real person would have and the instrict to survive.


    What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice wasn't monotone and she didn't read the story as if she didn't believe in the characters or was just getting paid. Although, some of the male characters sounded similar.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did have a extreme reaction to the story. After finishing the book, I started listening again the next day. I thought about how I would react if placed in the same situation. My reactions were more of rage thoughout the book then wanting to laugh. There were a few times when you did smile or almost felt like crying.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great story not on the lines of a classic but a book that will get you thinking and feeling. A book that helps distract you from your own issues.

    Story
    "Great, and definitely credit worthy."

    Heart wrenching, chilling, immersive, compelling, uplifting...Still Missing is all of that and more. The subject matter is reminiscent of Emma Donoghue's Room but in my opinion this is a more powerful tackling of the subject of abductiion, imprisonment and the aftermath of such an experience on a person. And how, even when they are found and trying to regain their lost lives they are in many ways '"still missing". Room was softened for me by the child's perspective. The euphemisms and subterfuge necessary for that book to work were not needed here which made for a more raw, emotional and disturbing read. So well done and plotted I couldn't "put it down", I was sorry when it ended.

    "Okay"

    I did like the story, but the ending was a little far fetched. Redefines what some people will do for $$$$$.

    Story
    "Nicely Done!"
    If you could sum up Still Missing in three words, what would they be?

    Chilling, thought provoking, unique


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is written as a monologe from a patient to her shrink. Very nicely done. Its easy to understand the main character's actions and thought patterns in this form. Brings out her personality, which, while damaged, is also smart and witty.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first page had me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not extreme reactions, but her humor made me smile and I could feel frustration along with the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a bit disappointed with the ending, the writing was fine, just wasn't able to appreciate how the mystery was wrapped up.

    "Compelling"

    Ideal for a long car journey or trip, this kept me hooked and guessing all the way through. It isn't 'great literature' but it was entertaining certainly compelling stuff!

    Story
    "don't waste your credits or $$"
    What would have made Still Missing better?

    Less pornographic detail about the whole event


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    nothing by this author


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    very whiny voice at the beginning


    What character would you cut from Still Missing?

    they were all weak.


    Any additional comments?

    This book wholly concentrated on perverse detail about the entire kidnapping scene. It was a foolishly written book. Don't waste your time or $$.

    "Great Perspective & Entertaining"

    I loved that this book was written from the perspective of recounting the crime during therapy sessions. That gave it a fresh and new twist. The book kept me interested and I often found that I didn't want to turn it off. I enjoyed the story very much and couldn't wait to find out who did it and why.

    Story
    "Gripping from the first Word"

    I have been a member of audible for about 4 months now and have listened to well over a dozen books, and this was by far my favourite yet. I finished it in four days (working days - do not listen at work). The narration was excellent, there was not a wasted word, I dont like overly descriptive books. If you are looking for a fast paced edge of your seat book, this is for you, even the ending was a complete surprise.
