And so begins the sequel to Kepnes beautiful little mindfuck You We are taken, once again, inside the mind of Joe Goldberg as he, yet again, pursues his true love This time, his adventures take him all the way to Los Angeles.Hidden Bodies is good, but honestly, Kepnes has lost a little magic here I think it was always going to be hard You presented us with a unique kind of narrator the kind of charming, intelligent, witty sociopath that we all loved to hate Armed with gorgeous prose and an underlying murderous quality, Joe was something new and surprising.This book isof the same It s beautifully written and the writing has a dynamic flow that keeps the pages moving quickly, and yet there s no spark of discovery Readers will come to this book knowing what to expect from Joe and getting it, which, while sometimes enjoyable, does not add much to the story.Joe s narrative is as dark and hilarious as before I especially liked his criticisms of Los Angeles even though I personally love the city, it s funny to see his perspective as a New Yorker His observations are witty and oh so true.But, where the first book was different and shocking, this book was merely fun I personally feel You ended in a perfect place to haunt its readers and make them think long after they put the book down Hidden Bodies attempts to add to a story that didn t really need to be extended and it shows The plot occasionally felt like rambling Joe was less exciting to read about So, while an entertaining commentary, this book just wasn t needed.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Store

    I m sorry, but this book was not good at all A super unnecessary sequel that lost absolutely everything that made You such a hit I don t think it s possible for me to bedisappointed This is one of my least favorite books I ve ever read CW stalking, violence, murder, substance abuseI was deeply disappointed with the direction of Joe s character In You, Joe has a unique path of development It s clear he is a very twisted man who does horrible, irredeemable things, yet there are moment I m sorry, but this book was not good at all A super unnecessary sequel that lost absolutely everything that made You such a hit I don t think it s possible for me to bedisappointed This is one of my least favorite books I ve ever read CW stalking, violence, murder, substance abuseI was deeply disappointed with the direction of Joe s character In You, Joe has a unique path of development It s clear he is a very twisted man who does horrible, irredeemable things, yet there are moments that make him seem a little less terrible which keep you fascinated enough to keep reading The only words I could use to describe Joe in Hidden Bodies is straight up homicidal In You, he has reasons behind his violent acts albeit, deluded reasons but he leads the reader to believe he s acting out of his own perverse conscience In Hidden Bodies, if a character breathes wrong, he goes off on a tangent about all the different ways he d like to murder them I get that a large part of You is following Joe as he getsinvolved with stalking Beck and takes increasing risks to achieve his goals, but it s as if we hit the height of his character at the end and there was nowhere else for him to go in the second installment Additionally, his overall characterization was watered down In book one, it was clear Joe genuinely believed he was in love with Beck and working towards her greater interests, but I refuse to believe Joe loved any of the women he claimed to love in book two I mean you can also argue Joe was never capable of loving Beck in the first place, but my point is in regard to how Joe treats the new love interests in comparison to Beck when he claims to love them even MORE than her There was no chemistry, nothing from Joe s end to suggest he feltthan attracted towards them, yet the author attempts to fabricate this nonexistent emotion from Joe Moreover, the secondary characters were so vapid and one dimensional The characters of You were all equally flawed and infuriating, but they brought something to the story They were unique and necessary Every character in Hidden Bodies could have been replaced with any stereotypical Los Angeles wannabe with interpersonal issues There was nothing enticing about ANY character in this book, which made it muchdifficult to sit through their flat personalities.Another shining element of You that is absent in Hidden Bodies was the second person narrative Having a story told from the perspective of a stalker with a dual relationship TO the person being stalked without their knowledge was creepy, unsettling, and extremely unique Without Joe telling the story to Beck, it lost all that magic that was created in book one Obviously, the perspective had to change but in doing so, it reverted the book to any other adult thriller The writing itself was fair I can t say I noticed a significant decline from You, but it was no longer notable.The plot was also SUPER boring I could not stand to put down You but I was begging for the end of Hidden Bodies very early on Even the moments that should have evoked suspense and intensity were muted due to the lack of chemistry between characters and lack of urgency because everyone else was just SO DUMB The worst part is that that the most exciting plot twist from Hidden Bodies was actually a twist that was reused from You Even with all of the decline from book one, we couldn t just get something new in a sequel to a best selling novel It almost felt like the author gave up trying to create something fresh within this world and tried to rely on the success of book one to sell the sequel The SINGULAR decent part of Hidden Bodies is when the storyline does cross over back to the events of You Despite being a sequel, the premise of book two doesn t actually have much to do with the actual events of book one for a lot of the story This was the only part of the novel to make me excited to find out what happened next and captured what I loved about book one Then again, it just further proves that Hidden Bodies is woefully subpar to it s predecessor and it was nowhere near enough to carry this story.Overall, this book was a total disappointment If you enjoyed You as much as myself, be kind to yourself and skip this one This is the most unnecessary sequel to ever be written I desperately wish I hadn t read it and allowed it to partially taint my view of one of my favorite thriller novels Not worth your time

    AND ONE STAR GOES TO THE WORST THRILLER BOOK I WISH I HAVEN T READ I wanted to read this sequel even though I wasn t a big fan of the first book and I wanted to see what was coming next on Netflix series L.A could be nice change of view for Joe s killer instincts maybe he may save us from so many obnoxious, B rated stars and jackals and abusers who destroy lives in movie industry OMG dammit what happened to the witty, intellectual, sarcastic and entertaining inner monologue of Joe The author AND ONE STAR GOES TO THE WORST THRILLER BOOK I WISH I HAVEN T READ I wanted to read this sequel even though I wasn t a big fan of the first book and I wanted to see what was coming next on Netflix series L.A could be nice change of view for Joe s killer instincts maybe he may save us from so many obnoxious, B rated stars and jackals and abusers who destroy lives in movie industry OMG dammit what happened to the witty, intellectual, sarcastic and entertaining inner monologue of Joe The author didn t only destroy his character and his creepy but somewhat likable memory of the previous book, she also crashed his body trembling down for several times with her car She turned him into a half witted, awkward, surreal, aimless guy had no resemblance with Joe Goldberg I read nearly 150 pages I hated the meaningless long sentences, artificial, worse characterizations if they could give Razzy awards for the book characters, they could gather all the statues weak references to the popular culture and silly names Yikes I hated everything about this book I could write a book named 10 million things I hate about Hidden Bodies Sorry but this time the author deserved my slapsthan characters And RIP Joe Goldberg Your character is ruined by the hands of the author but I m so sure the screenwriters and Penn Badgley s amazing portrait could save you for the upcoming projects.I hope the writer changes the decision to write sequels to inspire series writers Sorry to remind but Sera Gamble is one the most talented writers and her show Supernatural is about to end at its 15th season so without an author s help, she can createand so much better stories about Joe As a summary I HATE IT I WANT TO ERASE THE WORDS I VE READ AND TURN MY BRAIN OFF FOR RECOVERY

    I loved You and started Hidden Bodies immediately after I finished it Looking back, I think that maybe I should have taken a break from the endearingly crazy Joe Two books full of his rants and rationalizations back to back was just too much Joe s special brand of crazy is probably best served in small doses I absolutely loved him, but soon grew irritated with his antics You really can get too much of a good thing.After the way things ended for Beck, Joe finds a new object of obsession, I loved You and started Hidden Bodies immediately after I finished it Looking back, I think that maybe I should have taken a break from the endearingly crazy Joe Two books full of his rants and rationalizations back to back was just too much Joe s special brand of crazy is probably best served in small doses I absolutely loved him, but soon grew irritated with his antics You really can get too much of a good thing.After the way things ended for Beck, Joe finds a new object of obsession, Amy Pretty soon, he s following her unbeknownst to her, of course across the country In no time, Joe integrates himself into the lifestyle of a struggling Hollywood writer Along the way, Joe makes some new friends and gains some new love interests As we know, where there is a love interest for Joe, there s bound to be some hidden bodies This book was no exception.Overall, I found this to be a good story I think I would have liked itif I had taken a little break between books 1 and 2 I absolutely love Joe as a character, but by midway through Hidden Bodies his craziness was starting to get on my nerves I think his quirks are best handled a little at a time I give it 3.5 stars.Seeof my reviews at www.bookaddicthaven.com

    Oh dear, Ms Kepnes You got me with You, but clearly you were out to get someone else with Hidden Bodies What I found clever and enticing in You seems to have vanished, and in its place you took me on a crude meandering journey that felt too long way too long and pointless In fact, it s almost like you knew exactly what to do to shake me off Instead of the bookish New York setting in You, you set Hidden Bodies in Hollywood with no literary references whatsoever And focusing on Hollywo Oh dear, Ms Kepnes You got me with You, but clearly you were out to get someone else with Hidden Bodies What I found clever and enticing in You seems to have vanished, and in its place you took me on a crude meandering journey that felt too long way too long and pointless In fact, it s almost like you knew exactly what to do to shake me off Instead of the bookish New York setting in You, you set Hidden Bodies in Hollywood with no literary references whatsoever And focusing on Hollywood, you mocked the vapid world of the wannabe young actors and film makers but that got old and did I mention crude pretty quickly And you even dropped the second person singular narrative voice that had really got me in You And Joe the stalker just seemed icky and pathetic there was nothing tugging at my sympathy strings this time I almost gave up a few times and I must confess that I did some pretty heavy duty skimming but I had to read to the end to make sure you hadn t set some kind of trap for me somewhere along the way But no from beginning to end, you were determined to shake me off Hey, I get it, you ve moved on and now you clearly have your sights on someone else And it looks like you ve succeeded, because many readers seem to have loved Hidden Bodies That s fine My feelings aren t hurt You ve lost interest in me I ve lost interest in you Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an opportunity to read an advance copy
