Review; December 21, 2014


This was exactly the sort of book I needed to read now that my finals are over for school and winter break has officially started. Creepy as hell, and Joe is hilarious. Quite honestly, I laughed through the book while being afraid of him. As in Emily May's review of this book, she criticizes it being called a love story -- relating back to Lolita -- and I agree with her completely. Not a love story, not at all. Yet, I still couldn't help rooting for Joe in some way. Beck's fucked up. Joe's fucked up. Fucked up people make good couples, honestly. Just like in Twilight. Edward is Joe to Beck's Bella, to be quite honest. I'm already excited for the sequel and it's not even close to when it comes out.

Caroline Kepnes
“The problem with books is that they end. They seduce you. They spread their legs to you and pull you inside. And you go deep and leave your possessions and your ties to the world at the door and you like it inside and you don't want for your possessions or your ties and then, the book evaporates.”
Caroline Kepnes, You

message 1: by Mike (new) - added it

Mike Interesting about it being turned into a TV show. Are they talking about a whole season devoted to the entire course of the book?

Caidyn (BW Reviews; he/him/his) I'm not sure. It's just been announced really, so I'm not sure what they're planning on doing with it.
