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…
You starts dark. It stays dark.
Caroline Kepnes is an author I want to sit down with and have a chat. I would ask her how she came up with such an idea for a book that in my opinion is THE BEST thriller I have read so far this year. I would also ask her if she is someone you should be worried about.. because the content of this book is simply fanatical.
Joe is a stalker and Beck is his prey.. but….
This is a tale about obsession and unrequited love, it is a tale about getting what you want and losing it.
You is unlike anything I have read before and it is startling in the way that this really could happen to anyone, at anytime. The characters are alive with angst and they are so ‘real’.
This book is gritty and scary and brilliant. It is sick but it’s oh so good.
