Description

Praise for Caroline Kepnes and You:

Hypnotic and scary.” —Stephen King

“I am RIVETED, AGHAST, AROUSED, you name it. The rare instance when prose and plot are equally delicious.” —Lena Dunham

From debut author Caroline Kepnes comes You, one of Suspense Magazine’s Best Books of 2014, and a brilliant and terrifying novel for the social media age.

When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.

A terrifying exploration of how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation, debut author Caroline Kepnes delivers a razor-sharp novel for our hyper-connected digital age. You is a compulsively readable page-turner that’s being compared to Gone Girl, American Psycho, and Stephen King’s Misery.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 28, 2014 – Debut novelist Kepnes’s seriously unsettling depiction of stalking nevertheless manages to invoke glimmers of sympathy for its perpetrator. Joe is working as a clerk at a bookstore on New York City’s Lower East Side when M.F.A. writing student Guinevere Beck (known as Beck) saunters in. Joe knows immediately that they’re meant to be together. What follows is a chronicle of Joe’s psychotic preoccupation with Beck, told in Joe’s relentless, alternately passionate and vitriolic narration and addressed to Beck as “you.” Astonishingly enough, his fixation materializes into a relationship of sorts. Joe, who is well-read but never attended college, has a chip on his shoulder about his education and class status and the assumptions people make about him. Beck, for her part, prefers to stir up dramas rather than seriously work on her writing. What’s most chilling about this novel, besides its plausibility, is the way in which Kepnes makes the reader empathize with Joe during the journey into his troubled mind. Her book will have readers looking over their shoulders—and examining their own motivations.

#YOU = #READ

I had heard of this new up and coming author from a friend of mine. He had given me a brief synopsis and instantaneously I preordered YOU.

Now a few months after the release I am finally writing a review.

When it comes to books everyone's narrative voice (the movie inside ones head) varies from person to person. Sometimes it's almost too easy to say "you'll love this, you'll love that" because no matter how well a book is written if you don't have an imagination that conjures up the writing on the page like a projector to a screen then all is lost. Which brings me to this review. To those who say it sucked or it wasn't what they thought it would be. Maybe one should stop and take a look at today's social media outlet and grasp that what this man #joegoldberg does to #beck is what happens daily to many individuals.

It's a common courtesy to befriend a stranger and thank them for helping you with an everyday mundane task (such as a cashier checking out a book or movie for you) What you don't think or expect is for them to be a voyeuristic and manipulative stalker preying on the vulnerable and in turn molding you to what they perceive you to be. #becareful of what you #postonline for there lies the hunter marking its prey.

Kudos are in order for Caroline Kepnes for hitting a home run with her debut novel. LOVE her follow up to YOU is out September 2015
