When aspiring writer Guinevere Beck strides into the bookstore where Joe works, he is instantly smitten.

But there's more to Joe than Beck realises and much more to Beck than her perfect facade. And 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.

    Loved this book .. really felt myself siding with Joe. Felt if this would have been written any other way I wouldn't have. Great story line and writ in the best way possible!

    Usually I would read this type of genre and be disappointed to find it being just another repetitive story but this is a completely new read. It entrapped me from the very start. Now I'm about to make a start on the next book. Just a couple of pages mind... or chapters. Well done for creating such an original read!
  • Chilling, realistic twists throughout!

    I couldn't put this book down. He didn't just hook me into his twisted mind, Joe manipulated my emotions throughout. It had me on the edge of my seat all the way through and at times I felt like he victim - my predictions on where the story would go were way out! Very good read!
  • Fantastic

    I enjoyed this and was captivated beginning to end. The book is in equal measure, chilling and disturbing. Looking forward to more from this Author.

    What an amazing book. Loved this story. I enjoyed every page, just couldn't stop reading.
  • Disappointing

    By My-rade
    I really wanted to love this book. It stated off well and I was intrigued by the main character, but it soon became ridiculous. This guy must be the luckiest stalker alone because situations just fall into his lap which allow him to stalk his prey with ease. It was all very far fetched and unbelievable.
  • Amazing!

    Can't wait for the next one. Reading this was a never-ending struggle between sympathising with Joe and knowing he was crazy. Joe - being wrong never felt so right!
