Publisher Description

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.

I only listened to the preview 😔 but it was 😊

It was really good but I only read the preview but it was super interesting I wish I could listen to the whole thing for free but I can’t. 😔

Beautifully Haunting

I watched Raise the Red Lantern last year and this book left me with the same feeling. I won’t soon for get this book. This book made me laugh out loud at points—Joe’s narration is so manic and insane he ends being very funny at times—and by the end I felt genuinely sorrowful. It took me a bit to get through it, as the narrative style is a bit intense and can definitely tire you out, but I always wanted to pick up the book again. Wonderful book!

This book was a decent read.

There are some differences between this and the show but this still is an exciting story to read nonetheless. Gotta say though that a lot of it is of Joe rambling about something that feels like it could’ve been cut out and made the book a bit shorter, drags a bit. A fun read if you want something to keep you occupied but if you’ve seen the show no need to read this book tbh
