I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
CAROLINE KEPNES is the New York Times bestselling author of YOU, HIDDEN BODIES, PROVIDENCE, YOU LOVE ME and FOR YOU AND ONLY YOU. The Netflix series You is an adaptation of her Joe Goldberg/You novels.
“Life is not a book. It’s boring.”
Joe has landed himself a fellowship at Harvard. He has written a book and is preparing for publication. He’s confident and ready to wow these people. When he makes eye contact with another fellow, he knows. She’s the one. His one. They are meant to be.
This was such a twist on this storyline. But I liked the direction that it went, and I liked the build-up. The way the story creates build-up when necessary and the way Joe used his experience was well done.
I didn’t like Wonder, but I don’t think we are supposed to. She was shallow but in an “I’m not shallow” way. I caught on to her pretty quickly. I enjoyed the connection between the other fellows and Joe. It was interesting to see the interactions.
The twists in this book were so beautifully done, and I did not see them coming. I loved the turn things took, and it was entertaining watching Joe not have the upper hand.
This was such a perfect conclusion to this series. This book was a full-circle moment, and I loved how everything came together.
