And it starts well. Our main characters are interesting, the disappearance of Jon (and even his reappearance) intriguing. But it seemed to get a bit lost after that and I wasn’t sure even Kepnes knew where she wanted to take us.
You, a debut novel by Caroline Kepnes made my top eight books of 2014, but I didn’t love it as much as some. I certainly enjoyed it and a book written from the viewpoint of an almost-sympathetic psychopath really offered something very different.
Kepnes reintroduces us to Joe – the psychopathic bookseller – in her second novel, Hidden Bodies.
