YOU is an engaging thriller which pulls you into the world of Joe Goldberg in the first sentence and never lets you go. Written in direct address, a pseudo-second person style, YOU takes readers into Joe's world as he meets you, Guinevere Beck, the immediate object of his obsession and desire. Kepnes brilliantly crafts characters that follow the tropes of the mystery genre, yet feel fresh and new with this vibrant approach to the narration. As a reader, I have never rooted more for the bad guy to get the girl. Joe is the perfect measure of creepy, yet lovable, and much in the way Joe could not get Beck out of his head, I could not get this novel out of my own. If you have enjoyed this book, keep an eye out for the television series premiering in September (2018) on Lifetime.
Includes an excerpt of the next novel, the sequel, entitled 'Hidden bodies.'
