You've come home to me, delivered at last, on a Tuesday, 10:06 a.m. Every day I commute to this shop on the Lower East Side from my place in Bed-Stuy. Every day I close up without finding anyone like you. Look at you, born into my world today.
I have only had one other experience reading second person narration (that I can remember) Bright Lights, Big City- I have to say I wasn't a huge fan, and I found myself avoiding anything written in that point of view...until YOU...
From the moment Guinevere ...more

“The problem with books is that they end.”
Well, well, well. This is me reading the book after I have watched the TV adaptation. "adding gif of shame scene from Game of Thrones". Oh, well. Hang me. But let's talk about the book now. This is an extremely addicting, gripping and engaging book. Don't let the fact that it took me 9 days to finish this book mislead you from how obsessed I was with it, life is just like that. I could finish this book in a day, if I could. This is ho ...more
Oh, you are clever, aren’t you, Ms. Kepnes. Clever like a fox. But I’ve got your number. I’ll be watching you. That little book you wrote “You” is really not my kind of book – and you knew that. A book written from the perspective of a male stalker? Please! So trashy, so icky. There was no way I was going to read that book. But then you started setting traps to lure me. You planted some Goodreads reviews written by some of my friends – people you know I trust and respect. You had them raving abo ...more
My favourite nutcase in non-fic lit.
Yup, it happened. I finally found a character who makes all the other sociopaths I read about seem like the most stable and sane guys.
Told from Joe Goldberg's perspective, a normal —so he thinks— Manhattan bookstore employee, who gets dangerously obsessed with Beck at first sight and the rest, as they say, is history.
The narrative is structured like a long monologue to “You”: Guinevere Beck, who becomes the object of his obsessive affection. The second ...more
You wrote this book, and I saw it all over the place. You grabbed my attention with what looked like a cross between The Collector and American Psycho. I couldn't find your book anywhere, but I was able to land an inter-library loan and get my hands on it. I rushed to the library, but they were closed. I walked away with my head down, disappointed. All I could think about was you and your book which was called You and was written by you. You devil, you.
The next day I got my hands on your book a ...more
4 out of 5 stars to You, the first of a two-book thriller and suspense series, written in 2014 by Caroline Kepnes. All I can start out with is wow - I loved it! I've tried to pull out all spoilers, but I do give a little bit of the high-level plot and antics away, as I think it will make you want to read it more.
Why This Book
My friend Medhat asked if I’d be interested in a buddy read with him and proposed 5 different books. I’d read 1 already, didn’t have an interest in 1 of them, and 2 were ...more
These people don’t want to touch my dick with a ten-foot pole. Your pussy, on the other hand, is gold. (c) Well, that’s new. Precisely why would a guy want to have his dick touched with a ten-foot pole? And the said pole’s velocity might be a deal-breaker (and maybe not just deal).
You walk into a bookstore and… voila! you’ve got your brand-new madcap stalker. And he loves his typewriters! He even takes them to bed! And he does some frisky shit: he stuffs Peach’s bra into his pants (and no one ...more

This book will not be for everyone. You will either love it or hate it. Obviously I loved it. This book messed with my mind so much and made me see things in a whole new light. We live in an age where our whole lives are one click away on the internet. Anyone can find out anything about you. We have no privacy. Our lives are documented on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, ect. Joe, the main character, uses the internet and social media to his adv ...more
