Review: Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes

Review: Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes

Hidden Bodies (You, #2) by Caroline Kepnes on February 23rd 2016 Buy on Amazon, Buy on Audible Goodreads Genres: Romance, Suspense, Thrillers Series: YOU #2 Source: ARC via publisher Pages: 448 In the compulsively readable follow-up to her widely acclaimed debut novel, You, Caroline Kepnes weaves a tale that Booklist calls “the love child of Holden Caulfield and Patrick Bateman.” Hidden Bodies marks the return of a voice that Stephen King described as original and hypnotic, and through the divisive and charmingly sociopathic character of Joe Goldberg, Kepnes satirizes and dissects our culture, blending suspense with scathing wit. Joe Goldberg is no stranger to hiding bodies. In the past ten years, this thirty-something has buried four of them, collateral damage in his quest for love. Now he’s heading west to Los Angeles, the city of second chances, determined to put his past behind him. In Hollywood, Joe blends in effortlessly with […]
