    1. οχι, δε με εψησε καθολου.ισως φταιει το οτι διαβασα σχετικα προσφατα το "μερικες φορες λεω ψεματα" που για τα δικα μου δεδομενα ηταν σκαλες ανωτερο , αν και ειχε παρομοιο στορυ.ισως (οπωσδηποτε) φταιει η πολυ τελεια, πολυ θυμα ,πολυ αδικημενη και τελικα πολυ αντιπαθητικη πρωτα [...]


    2. Zugegeben: Am Ende wurde es nochmal deutlich spannender, aber es war einfach soooo öde bis zur Hälfte, dass ich definitiv nur 3 Sterne geben kann :D


    3. With over twenty books under her belt, Joy Fielding is bound to improve with every novel, yet occasionally produce work that feels like it is a step backward to her faithful readers. Still Life: A Novel, while well-written in spite of a tricky Plot device, still manages to fall short of what Fielding fans have come to expect.The gimmick of having the books narrator spend the majority of the novel non-communicative yet fully aware of her surroundings in a coma, attempting to solve her attempted m [...]


    4. Πρωτότυπη ιδέα, δεν μπορώ να πω. Και η εκτέλεση ήταν εξίσου καλή. Η ηρωίδα μας μετά από ένα φριχτό ατύχημα καταφέρνει να επιβιώσει αλλά πέφτει σε κώμα. Σταδιακά ανακτά την αίσθηση της ακοής και μόνο, δηλαδή ακούει όσα λέγονται γύρω της αλλά δεν μπορεί να αντιδράσει. Μου άρεσε [...]


    5. First of all, its story about comatose women who can hear what her close ones are talking and she found out secrets they kept hidden from her. It's fast-paced, interesting, dramatic and full of suspense.


    6. Καλή ιδέα και έξυπνα τοποθετημένη. Πρωτότυπη. Η πρωταγωνίστρια πέφτει σε κώμα ύστερα από ατύχημα, αλλά σταδιακά επανέρχεται και καταφέρνει να ακούει. Τίποτε άλλο όμως δεν μπορεί να αισθανθεί. Αυτά που ακούει όμως δηλώνουν πως εξακολουθεί να υπάρχει κίνδυνος για τη ζωή της. [...]


    7. Πρωτη φορα διαβαζω την Joy Fielding και ειλικρινα εχω μεινει με τις καλυτερες εντυπωσειςΕνα ευκολοδιαβαστο,γρηγορο,αγωνιωδες βιβλιο που δεν με αφησε να το βαρεθω εφοσον ολη την ωρα με ειχε κυριολεκτικα στην τσιτα!Φυσουσα και ξεφυσουσα,ειχα νευρα,ενταση και αγχος για την εξελιξ [...]


    8. Πολυ καλο βιβλιο με κλιμακωτη αγωνια και ενταση ,ωραιους χαρακτηρες αλλλα το τελοςξενερωστε μαζι μας .κριμα γιατι αν εξαιρεσουμε το τελος μου αρεσε πολυ


    9. An exceptional thriller.A woman trapped in her own body,unable to move and to see.She can hear everything that's said around her,however but cannot respond or give a sign.She can hear people scheming and threatening her life.Only now does she realize she's got enemies.The accident that put Casey into a coma was carefully planned by someone she knows very well.As the young woman slowly comes around,the danger that surrounds her gets even greater.Suspenseful,especially towards the end!


    10. Αν και μπορεί να επαναλαμβάνομαι, η αστυνομική λογοτεχνία δεν ήταν ποτέ το φόρτε μου. Αυτή ωστόσο η πραγματικότητα που με συνόδευε από τα εφηβικά μου κι όλας χρόνια, έχει αλλάξει σημαντικά το διάστημα των τελευταίων τριών ετών. Αυτό δεν ξέρω αν οφείλεται στο ότι εγώ μεγάλωσ [...]


    11. This is my first experience with the Canadian author Joy Fielding and I must say I wasn't disappointed with her writing style and the plot twists she puts to her story.I admit I bought this book on a whim, I was in the bookstore yesterday and saw this cover, all simple and dark, and then decided to read the synopsis since I was in the mood for a mystery/thriller book. I started reading it late last night and finished it a couple of minutes ago. I couldn't put it down, even when I felt my eyes ti [...]


    12. Λοιπόν τι να πούμε για αυτό το βιβλίο; Είναι μια ιστορία πνιγμένη στο συναίσθημα. Πληθώρα συναισθημάτων. Θυμός, φρίκη, θλίψη, αγωνία είναι μόνο κάποια από αυτά. Η Τζόϊ Φίλντινγκ είναι μαστόρισσα στο να μας κάνει να "νοιώθουμε".Αρκετά δυνατή, ασυνήθιστη και ανατρεπτική η ιστορ [...]


    13. I don’t read a whole lot of fiction anymore, but my husband recommended this to me just because Middlemarch figures into the plot. The story is about Casey, a woman in a coma after a car crash that police suspect was attempted murder. The first half of the book is a whodunit, but because Casey, against everyone’s expectations, can hear and understand what’s going on around her, she finds out the identity of her would-be murderer midway through. From that point on, the suspense driving the [...]


    14. Casey is beautiful, rich, happily married and the victim of a "hit and run" which broke almost every bone in her body and left her in a coma. People in comas can hear - and that's what has Casey so anxious and confused. People are not necessarily the people she thought them to be and there was nothing she could do about it. Nicely done even tho I knew who was responsible early on.


    15. Katastrofa!Najgori krimić koji sam ikada čitala, čak i za štivo za plažu je grozota.Najveća zamjerka ide nedovoljno, ustvari nikako pojašnjeni motivi negativca.


    16. It could've been better. The villain's motive was weak so that took away some of my enjoyment. But overall it was a pretty good psychological thriller.


    17. 4.5 starsI wish the ending wasn't so rushed and I wished some more explanation but all in all - very enjoyable read :D I think Joy Fielding is becoming one of my beloved authors.


    18. Joy Fielding seems to have watched too many episodes of "House" and "Law & Order." Her novel "Still Life" echoes stories from these too shows that it's almost embarrassing. The novel tells the story of Casey, a beautiful, successful businesswoman with a happy marriage/home/career/life. Read: something bad's going to happen to her! She is struck by a car so severely that every bone in her body is broken and she suffers from extreme brain trauma. The "hook" is that she is mentally conscious, a [...]


    19. Casey Marshall owns her own decorating company and loves her wonderful husband and friends. Then she suffers severe injuries from being hit by a car and is plunged into a coma. Casey gradually becomes aware of what's happening around her. She can hear, at least some of the time, but can't move, see or communicate. What she learns is that the people she loves might not be quite who she thought they were, and the "accident" may have been an attempt on her life.This is the best suspense novel I've [...]


    20. I have become a fan of Joy Fielding's work just recently. I started out by reading her book HeartStopper and was quite intrigued by the mystery she portrayed in her book. The same thing happened again when I read her book Charley's Web, and this latest selection did not disappoint me either.This story has an air of mystery surrounding it as the lead charcter is hit by a car and left in a coma. What no one can figure out is that she can hear everything going on around her and she finds out that h [...]


    21. A unique story told from the point of view of a victim after an attempt to murder her left her undead but in a comatose state. Fielding cleverly weaves in and out of Casey's comatose dreams and realities, sometimes blurring the line between the two, resulting in a very interesting view into the confused mind. After reading this novel, I'm left wondering whether people in comas are actually conscious. How often are people laying in hospital beds, alert but unable to communicate to us and frustrat [...]


    22. Just OK. I probably wouldn't have finished if my book group wasn't reading it. While the plot was interesting, the characters were stock -- the drunken mother, the cynical friend, the good little girl -- the dialogue ordinary and the backstories long and distracting.My impression: this successful author had a contract for a book of a certain length and padded a shorter story to make up the difference.I lost count of how many times she thought, "This can't be happening! This can't be happening! T [...]


    23. I think this was a decent read for my first time with Joy. There was good character development and I enjoyed her writing style. I thought it was an interesting concept to read about someone in an immobile situation throughout the entire book and it worked well enough. About halfway through the story is where you learn what led to Casey's accident. The buildup to the end was not great but I don't think it was bad either, just okay. So I will give more of Fielding's novels a chance later down the [...]


    24. This was told from the perspective of the patient Casey Marshall who is left in a deep coma with all her bones broken after a hit and run accident. While in this coma she figures out she can hear everyone around her but not see. She learns her accident may have not been an accident at all, and who her friends really are. It was really good up until the end. I felt it was rushed and the ending was just there when the story line couldn't go any further.


    25. 2.5- 3To my surprise, this ended being a fairly decent book even if it was utterly predictable and the events leading to the end were way too convenient. It was entertaining and well written, and the narration made it work for me.



    26. If you're looking for a suspense novel, look elsewhere. By page 15 the whole story became clear to me, due to too many hints in the opening chapters.Young wealthy woman, hit by a car, in a deep comabut can everything the doctors, friends, sister and husband say in her hospital room. Obviously the accident was no accident and yadayada.


    27. Very predictable, but still great thriller! Joy Fielding will always be one of my favourite thriller authors.



    28. Casey is beautiful, rich, happily married and the victim of a "hit and run" which broke almost every bone in her body and left her in a coma. People in comas can hear - and that's what has Casey so anxious and confused. People are not necessarily the people she thought them to be and there was nothing she could do about it. Nicely done even tho I knew who was responsible early on.
