Gone Girl meets Fatal Attraction in Caroline Kepnes' You, a chilling account of the twisted psychology behind unrelenting passion. 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... A chilling account of unrelenting, terrifying deceit, Caroline Kepnes' You is a thriller more perversely clever and dangerously twisted than any YOU have ever read.

"This book was crazy from literally page one. I wish I had the experience of reading it before watching the show because the show actually followed this book to a T. I didn’t get the dramatic attachment to the book like I did the show but it was still pretty decent. I haven’t read a book in second person before so that was also an adjustment"
"I just couldn’t with this book. The way it was written was way too creepy for me"
"If you haven’t seen or at least heard of the Netflix series “You”, you’ve probably been living under a rock for the past 3 years. I didn’t know it was based off a book until after the 1st season, so I’m hella late reading it. But YALL, Joe is even more CRAZY and DERANGED in the books. And I’m a sicko because I love it. <br/><br/>If you liked the show, you’ll probably love the book. It is long AF, but I was thoroughly entertained. If you don’t like psycho thrillers, this probably isn’t for you. It’s not graphic either for my fellow queasy stomach folks."
