A Comment On You:Obsessive and Chilling

Hi, Nerdies!

This one is a novel. About a stalker. By Caroline Kepnes.

Nothing gory, only crazy and disturbing. If you are into psychotic stuff like me, then this novel is definitely for you.

I read this novel being enticed by its numerous good reviews which were literally strewn everywhere I looked. I found one or two bad reviews, but mostly those were because the reviewers couldn’t stand the level of creepiness.

I think this book is ingenious. The story is narrated by its villain, Joe, which makes it such a riveting account. I feel like it’s kinda fun and exciting and creepy of course to know what’s actually going on in his mind and to sort of peek into why he does what he does.  I am sure there are stalkers like Joe out there that actually have immediate access to our daily life. And to just think that any of us can easily be a Beck (the girl in the story) is insane. 

In short, I thought I knew what a stalker is, but really, I didn’t. You want to know what a stalker is, you must read this book.

And by the way. If you want a maximum level of creepiness, I suggest you to watch Nightcrawler right after you finish the book. It is a movie starring and produced by Jake Gyllenhaal. Don’t ask why. Watch it and you’ll know why.

Thank you for reading, and if you like my writing even a bit, please share, or follow, or comment, or like. But even if you do nothing, I still thank you!

Here is a synopsis from Scribd:

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

But there’s more to Joe than Beck realizes and much more to Beck than her perfect façade. And the obsessive relationship quickly spirals into a whirlwind of deadly consequences.

A chilling account o fun relenting, terrifying deceit, Caroline Kepnes’ You is a thriller more perversely clever and dangerously twisted than any YOU have ever read.

    Glad you enjoyed it! I didn’t like the writing style too much, I thought it was a bit slow, but I really thought it was original and creepy, and I love creepy! Beck was so unlikeable…
    Have you watched the TV show? Since what I didn’t like was the writing style, I think I might really enjoy the show. Oh and Nightcrawler is such a good recommendation, it was super creepy too!
    Have you read Stillhouse Lake? It’s more gory but I also found it so creepy. It’s about a woman who tries to live a somewhat normal life with her kids after everybody discovers that her husband is a serial killer. She didn’t know about it but people think she did and harass her, so she becomes quite paranoid.

      Omg, I can’t agree more with you!! I don’t like Beck too! There were times that I sort of thought Beck deserves Joe. I might be a psycho myself! 😄

      Havent watched the TV show, tbh I wasnt that into the book that I wanted to watch a series with same story.

      Havent read Stillhouse Lake but will read it since you mentioned it.

      Thanks for stopping by btw. 😀

        There are 10 episodes. And it’s so damn creepy. For a few hours the only thing i could think was how anyone can stalk us and our lives so easily and I just wanted to get off all social media platforms. 😂 But yeah, it’s so creepyyyy.
