NOW A HIT NETFLIX SERIES
A NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER

“Hypnotic and scary.” —Stephen King

“I am riveted, aghast, aroused, you name it. The rare instance when prose and plot are equally delicious.” —Lena Dunham

From debut author Caroline Kepnes comes You, one of Suspense Magazine’s Best Books of the Year, and a brilliant and terrifying novel for the social media age.

When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.

A terrifying exploration of how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation, debut author Caroline Kepnes delivers a razor-sharp novel for our hyper-connected digital age. You is a compulsively readable page-turner that’s being compared to Gone Girl, American Psycho, and Stephen King’s Misery.

👍🏽

Joe has a desperate need to be loved. It’s his number 1 motivator, he’s not truly happy unless he has a woman by his side that loves him. He kills anyone that’s gets in the way of that.
I feel as if technology would’ve been his downfall. 1 look at the location of his phone of his victim’s phone and the cops would knw they were in the same location. That their phones were in his apartment for periods of time when they were presumed to be missing. He had keepsakes stashed. Beck said “you knw” a lot. It was annoying and almost unbearable to read her dialogue because she asked that so much. The overuse of AND instead of commas. I understand that’s how Joe thought and no one thinks in perfectly grammatically correct English.

The book was good, I’m extremely surprised he didn’t get caught.

Page turner for sure.

This story is electric. I read it in one sitting. If you like a good lunatic murderer this books for you.

Disturbing

The thing I found most disturbing about this novel is how I occasionally found myself rooting for Joe. That is a result of the first-person narrative forcing you to see the world only through the antagonist‘s eyes. It was a great book. It will mess with your perspective.
