Publisher's Summary

It started out as an ordinary day for Esther Comely-Cox, if you consider simultaneously totaling your car, smashing a Ho Ho in your face, and meeting a handsome doctor ordinary.

Estranged from her family over her sister's mental illness and death, Esther can't help but feel alone. And when Esther hears the voice of her twin sister who committed suicide seven years ago, she begins to question her own sanity, leading her to wonder if anything is what it seems. Searching for answers, Esther must confront her past while looking towards a new future; one in which she is finally accepted.

Through humor and heartbreak, Esther learns that blood does not mean family, that absence does not make the heart grow fonder, and that silence can speak volumes.

A very emotional and beautifully written story.

This book has stolen my heart and has me thinking about how this illness has destroyed many life's. It is well written and I would suggest this book to everyone.

Depth and hunour

Dysfunctional family, mental illness, romance, humour, suspense, hot doctors and creamy cakes. A fantastic chick lit novel, a little on the darker side, that kept me guessing the whole way through with the twists and turns it took. I found Esther likable and relatable. I enjoyed Kathryn's writing style and have another of hers lined up to read already.

I listened to the audiobook edition, which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator was fantastic, adding to the story.

Excellent!

If you could sum up I'm Still Here in three words, what would they be?

Held my interest.

What was one of the most memorable moments of I'm Still Here?

When Esther is sitting on the cold concrete wondering why OK didn't text her back, and Rob pulls up.

Which character – as performed by Lisa Beacom – was your favorite?

OK

Any additional comments?

This had a very interesting plot and the author did an excellent job of portraying the characters in depth. I felt like I knew them by the end of the book. The narrator brought all of the characters to life and did several accents very well. Highly recommended!

Good Story and Awesome narrator.

This narrator and character became one in the same. This was a sad story in many ways but with a feel good ending. Enjoy!

loved story and narration

Would you consider the audio edition of I'm Still Here to be better than the print version?

I very much enjoyed listening to the audio version of this entertaining book. Yes, I think I enjoyed the narrated version the most.

What did you like best about this story?

The interesting characters and the narration.

Have you listened to any of Lisa Beacom’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I am reading "Hold Her Down" right now. The narration is excellent.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Interesting characters in a very well-written and well-narrated story.

Really good story with bad narriation

I really had to pay attention to the book as the narrator was slow and monotone. I think this particular book would have been better if I read it. The main character had a very sarcastic sense of humor, which I enjoy greatly. But the narrator was so slow and took pauses in weird places. A couple of time, I had to check my phone to see if the playback had stopped. It had not, it was just a long pause.

If you can listen "around" the narrator, it is a good story. If not, you should read the print version.

Some really funny moments.

I didn't care for the strong language throughout and I guessed what would happen fairly accurately but overall it was a good book.
