“When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he googles the name on her credit card.
There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight – the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.
As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he begins quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way. Joe will do anything to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms – even if it means murder.”
WOW! 😱 Joe! Creepy as f*ck. Bat shit crazy! But I loved it! It was refreshing to have the main character be the bad guy and seeing everything from his point of view. He was so well written. It was a tiny bit predictable at some points but it didn’t matter! I was still at the edge of my seat wanting more. It took me just barely over 24 hours (because I had to sleep and do mommy things) to finish it. It was a fast read!
Sometimes I did get annoyed with Beck and rolled my eyes 🙄 or just wanted to slap the shit out of her but it made Joe even better as a character. I sure as crap would NOT have been able to put up with her shit like he did. Guess that means I’m not bat shit crazy! 😂😂
This is definitely a psychological thriller. A must read! I will be reading the sequel, Hidden Bodies, very soon.
