CREEPY, YET UNIQUE. “YOU” by CAROLINE KEPNES

YOU

On a rare day when I was actually watching television, I saw a preview for a new series starting on September 9th on Lifetime.

At the end, the preview told me it was based on a BOOK! YAY!

So, I checked it out on Amazon, downloaded it, and started reading it. It was hard to put down!

There is a link at the bottom of this, where  you can view the trailer.

WARNING

THIS BOOK IS DISTURBING AND MAY TRIGGER YOU.

IT INVOLVES STALKING, VIOLENCE, OVER-SEXUALIZATION, AND A LOT OF SWEARING.

MY THOUGHTS

I enjoyed this book, yet I didn’t. I feel guilty for enjoying it. It’s like passing an accident, and you don’t want to look, but you do.

Every character in this book has major issues. Even the stalking victim, Beck.

Even the Doctor who isn’t a Doctor, has major issues. (Psychologist)

Oddly, at times, I found myself rooting for Joe (the stalker)

He was likable, yet you loathe him as you read further along.

What is unique about this book is the style of writing the Author used.

It is told from Joe’s point of view in a deep and disturbing way.

Although this is Fiction, if you like watching shows on ID, or true crime, you will like this book.

Even though I have already read the book, I’m considering purchasing the Audio version because I’m interested in how this book is read by someone else.

Here is the link to purchase:

It’s available in Hardback, Paperback, Kindle and Audio. The Hardback is almost $50 so good grief, Amazon what is up with that?

Please purchase elsewhere if you prefer Hardback!
