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
    "Very Difficult to Read as a Mother of a Baby Girl"
    What did you love best about Still Missing?

    The performance was great. I finished this book a couple of days ago and it has still stayed with me. The writing was good and convincing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Still Missing?

    The most memorable were the heartwrenching ones. I'd hesitate to describe any because I don't want to spoil the book.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    The main character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I actually had to Google a summary because I needed to know what happened with one particular thing. The anticipation was distressing.


    Any additional comments?

    I do not recommend this book for anyone who has an overabundance of empathy, particularly if you are a mother. It might have been an easier read for me prior to having my daughter.

    It's strange because I regret listening to this, even though it was well written. It was just too much to listen to as a mom of a baby girl.

    Story
    "Great read, disappointing ending"
    What made the experience of listening to Still Missing the most enjoyable?

    The look inside the experience and mind of someone who has been abducted.


    What other book might you compare Still Missing to and why?

    Room by Emily Donahue.
    Also this novel takes place on Vancouver Island involving a realtor who is abducted. There is a real life story of a realtor on Vancouver Island who was murdered at a home she was showing. That was a bit eerie.


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

    n/a


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not in one sitting, it's pretty long. I listened to it every day though until complete!


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't love the ending where you find out who was responsible for the abduction. It would have been better if it was just random or if the abductor had chosen the woman at random. Makes it less sensational and more authentic.

    Story
    "Don't start until you've got the time to finish"

    Wow! This book was riveting; disturbing, hardbreaking, nightmare- and anguish- inducing.

    I can't quite remember how I stumbled upon this book, perhaps it was recommended after I'd bought Abducted, another harrowing story of kidnapping and torture, but I'm so glad I purchased it.

    I started it last night and stopped only to sleep, finishing it today. I couldn't wait to hear the whole awful story, which felt so much like a true crime story, I found myself feeling almost guilty at times for being so enthralled in Annie's journey.

    I was skeptical of the author's design of using one-sided therapy sessions to relay the story, but she did it with it skill, and this allowed her to unfold the story of both the kidnapping and the aftermath through the main character's eyes. While I think it would have been fine to include the therapist's interaction, (as in The Silver Linings Playbook), doing it in a one-sided fashion emphasized the character's feeling of being all alone in her ordeal and her recovery.

    This book is not for the faint of heart; if you're looking for a light read, this isn't it. It is dark and sad but ends on a hopeful note.

    I liked the ending; I didn't find it to be a cliffhanger or a set up for "book 2" in the trend of trilogies, but I'd happily purchase another book by this author, especially if it were a continuation of Annie's story.

    Lastly, the narration was spot-on. I've heard other books by Dawe and I didn't even recognize her voice in this one; she did a great job evoking the characters, particularly Annie. Fantastic.

    Highly recommended!

    Story
    "Could not put down my headphones!!!"
    What did you love best about Still Missing?

    The unique storytelling device of presenting the main character's one-sided conversation with her "shrink" drives this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved following Annie's thought processes as she dealt with her life after her abduction while also slowly drawing out the details of the experience. I admired her honesty and self-awareness.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    Annie's voice was perfect. The pacing was just right for every circumstance. You could totally feel her every emotion from fear to defiance, confusion to sadness, anger to optimism.


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

    This book moved me to tears several times, but I can't share the details without giving away plot points.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't give out five stars easily; this book deserves every one for both the story and narration. I'll definitely be looking for this author and narrator in the future.

    Story
    "Brutal and Course, not fully developed"

    *The book does have profanity and a rape description but I have read many books I found much more offensive*
    The story begins with a nightmare: working alone, only to be taken. What happened during the period of captivity is told during a series of therapy sessions. At the end of the book, I felt that the author spent so much time developing the story of captivity that end was rushed. Overall, I was disappointed. The idea or premise of the book is excellent but I was left with a feeling that it needed further development. Maybe the book needed a few extra chapters or pages. The ending needed further development.
