'Thriller of the year' Daily Mail When aspiring writer Guinevere Beck strides into the bookstore where Joe works he is instantly smitten. Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: tough, razor-smart and sexier than his wildest dreams. He'd kill to have her. Soon Beck can't resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom made for her. When a string of macabre incidents tears her world apart there is only one person she can turn to. But there's more to Joe than Beck realises and much more to Beck than her perfect facade. The obsessive relationship quickly spirals into a whirlwind of deadly consequences... A chilling account of unrelenting, terrifying deceit, Caroline Kepnes' You is a thriller more perversely clever and dangerously twisted than any YOU have ever read. 'If you only read one new thriller this year, make it this one. It will stay with you long after you have put it down' Daily Mail 'A fantastically creepy thriller. The kind of book you put your life on hold for' Glamour 'Clever and chilling' ELLE 'A brilliant tale It's Gone Girl meets a sinister version of Girls' MARIE CLAIRE 'An addictive thriller!' Closer'I am RIVETED, AGHAST, AROUSED you name it. The rare instance when prose and plot are equally delicious.' Lena Dunham on YOU.

Yuck. So disturbing. Rarely do I think this, but the Netflix series is far superior in its writing.

DogMomIrene Interesting. I haven‘t watched the series. I was waiting to read the book. May rethink that one🤔 1mo

A crazy ride: it's scary to think how someone can utilize today's technology to infiltrate and submerse themselves into your life so easily. How, when living in a larger city, some people can cease to exist when hidden amongst others. Kepnes was so good at balancing the dark side of Joe with the unlikable actions of Beck; the logic behind Joe's actions mixed with the lies told by Beck.

Got to chapter 9. I watched the series, but wanted to read the book version and I accidentally checked out the audiobook version with Libby. Tell me why I half expected it to be narrated by Penn Badgley.

#Trappedonanisland September edition @Laughterhp thank you for your picks this month! I chose these two and listened on audiobook. To be honest I am still in the middle (this month got very busy) but I plan on finishing up in October. “You” is similar to the show which I loved and I always like JD Robb so I am enjoying both picks. @aperfectmjk

I read the book/ebook when I could and listened to the audiobook during other times. Oh. My. Gosh! It was an incredible read. I did watch the series when it first came out, but the book is so much better!

I know this has become a popular show on Netflix, but I‘m bailing. I‘ve listened for 2 1/2 hours out of 11. Very slow moving and I don‘t need this crazy, stalker (I know, redundant) in my head. I hope others can find enjoyment in the book , but it is “no go” for me.

I was so excited to read this book. I loved the Netflix series and decided to read the novel before starting season 3.
I'm sad to say that after reading this book, I stopped watching the show. If you have watched the show and felt it was harsh or crude at times; the book is much harsher.
I didn't like the language used. I disliked all of the characters. Do not buy a book, just because you like the show it's based on.

lele1432 That‘s good to know! I have been enjoying the Netflix series (just started watching season 1 around the holidays and now I‘m on season 3), but I almost always think the book is better. I‘ll probably read the series this year! 12mo

400+ pages of obsession narrated by a psychopath in first person in historic present is not how I would define what I love to read, but this was very enjoyable. It is well written, and I constantly found myself questioning if how Joe was interpreting the events was really how they had happened. The outcome was quite predictable, still it was a satisfactory ending to this very twisted and sick narrative.

Hoping to finish this read before the end of the month (How is it already December on Wednesday?!)…book Joe is giving me a far more intense creep factor than tv/Netflix Joe…not sure if I‘ll keep on to the other books, but we‘ll see.

You didn't walk in here for books. You didn't have to say my name. You didn't have to smile or listen or take me in. But you did. Your signature is on the receipt. This wasn't a cash transaction and it wasn't a coded debit. This was real. I press my thumb into the wet ink on your receipt and the ink of Guinevere Beck stains my skin.
