Review - You by Caroline Kepnes

This is a pretty disturbing book - a story of obsession, stalking and murder.  Joe is a seemingly innocent man to the outside world, but internally he is obsessive and delusional.  His obsession with college student, Beck is overwhelming.  You get a great insight into his thoughts and how they drive his actions in a way that is terrifying.  His manipulation of social media to spy on her and cover traces of his crimes makes you realize how vulnerable we are in the digital age.

The thing is, he presents himself well and normal to the world, covering up how incredibly dangerous he actually is.  The problem I had though, is that I didn't like ANY of the characters and that detached me from caring about his actions.  As much as he despised the pretentiousness of the people in Beck's life, he also was pretentious.  As a result, this book was much slower going than I expected and I am not sure I will read the next - Love.
