"Love hurts... When aspiring writer Guinevere Beck strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe works, he's instantly smitten. Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: She's gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and as sexy as his wildest dreams. Beck doesn't know it yet, but she's perfect for him, and soon she can't resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom made for her. But there's more to Joe than Beck realizes, and much more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect facade. Their mutual obsession quickly spirals into a whirlwind of deadly consequences. A chilling account of unrelenting passion, Caroline Kepnes's You is a perversely romantic thriller that's more dangerously clever than any you've read before"--… (mere)

I would give this a 3.5. I listened to the audio book of this because I felt it would seem a bit creepier that way. I thought it was an interesting story. It was entertaining and quick to read. It was strange though. A lot of the time I wasn't entirely sure how I felt about this book. It really wasn't as creepy as I was expecting it to be. It was more strange than anything. I also found myself rooting for the crazy stalker murderous guy and then would have to check myself because he is a crazy stalker murderous guy. ( )

This is the reason I'm on Goodreads. This book.

A few days ago, I happened across a glowing review from Edward Lorn, an author and reviewer who's opinion I take quite seriously. We don't always agree on what makes a book good, but he praised this novel up, down, and sideways, so I figured I've have to check it out. It's not a book that would have ever been on my radar otherwise.

So, because of Goodreads, I read You. And, holy shit, am I ever glad I did.

There's nothing incredibly shocking here. The plot is actually somewhat predictable. But what the author does with Joe, the narrator, the insights she gives him, the POV, the sheer manic stream of consciousness outpouring of...well...everything...is simply breathtaking. It's like talking to someone for a few hours that's ADD to start with, then is pumped full of coffee. Joe's like the energizer bunny, just going and going and going, and it's a beautiful thing to behold.

I'm not going to spoil a damn thing here, because this is a novel that should be experienced cold. I know there's some issues with others about all the references to a specific time, with all the mentions of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code and King's Dr. Sleep, and it will ultimately serve to date this novel. But damn, what Kepnes does with all those pop culture references is amazing.

I loved this novel. ( )

This book was just as good as I imagined it would be. How Caroline Kepnes placed herself in the shoes of a stalker so marvelously makes me think she might have experience in the field. I can't wait to dive into Hidden Bodies! ( )

It was okay. The show differed a great deal and I think the book was better at painting the serial stalker and killer that he actually was...
Here we are discussing both.

This book follows a guys named Joe. He meets a girl named Beck. He becomes obsessed with Beck. The entire book is written in a way in Joe's point of view but as if he is writing a letter to Beck. He gets her name and finds all social media accounts, her address, steals her phone so he can read all her e-mails. He then slowly worms his way into her life and becomes her boyfriend.

Joe is definitely out of his mind. His obsession is proof enough of that but there is serious proof the further in you read. Beck is in my opinion a bit full of herself. She cares far to much about what others, including strangers, think of her. I honestly didn't like or relate to any of the character in the story.

I was anticipating so much from this book and it let me down big time. I didn't find it creepy. At most I can say that it has a good message about keeping social media accounts private and not giving out private info on public social media. Its the best I can say for this. By the time I realized this book was not that great. I was to far in to allow myself to stop, and thats the only reason I finished it. ( )

Caroline Kepnes is brilliant and unique in her voice and writing of Joe’s character. The story is told by Joe in second person, allowing the reader to live inside of Joe’s head as he speaks to Beck through his thoughts. There is an innocence and sweetness about Joe and his obsession, and the second person point of view is very clever on the author’s part because it brings the reader so much closer to the characters and allows empathy for Joe and his actions. Did I just say empathy? Yes. Empathy AND understanding for the actions of this creepy stalker whom I couldn’t help but grow closer to and somehow feel a tenderness toward his normal facade. We do get just a glimpse to arouse suspicion as to why Joe is the way he is, but there isn’t anything substantial to validate that belief. Perhaps, that is for the next book?

It’s evident that Caroline Kepnes is a literary junkie and well-read as she becomes the book savvy and opinionated Joe who reveres books with literary references throughout the book. The perversion of You is compelling and passionate, making it difficult to put down. This is truly a story of love and obsession gone awry, and it’s creepy to think that this could really happen or perhaps it does really happen in life. What’s more creepy than Joe’s story of his love and obsession for Beck? The fact that I was emotionally tied to his character. Every flaw. Every humor. Every corrupt effort on his part to weave a life with Beck that he visualized in his demented mind. Rarely does the reader enter the mind of a demented psychopath, and You provides that thrill. Brilliant, twisted,chilling, and innocence describe Joe and his obsession in this character akin to Steinbeck’s Lenny and his mouse in Of Mice and Men. I recommend this book to those readers who seek a psychological thrill and be aware. You WILL take a walk in the shoes of a forlorn and psychotic romantic.

Nobody will report this to the police because nobody wants to admit to watching.
You’re into this fucking deli where you stand in line with. nine-to-fivers who read Stephen King on their iPads while they wait for their turn to order their sexless green salads, fucking beans and dressings and scallions and onions (Red or white? Grilled or raw?), for fuck’s sake people, it’s a SALAD.  Stop overthinking it.
What’s the only thing more sexless than lunch? Brunch, a meal invented by rich white chicks to rationalize day drinking and bingeing on French toast.
