You Love Me Is Must Recommended Book

In the third Of Caroline Kepnes ‘ Novel, Joe Goldberg is ready to settle down. Volunteering at a library on Bainbridge Island, he keeps things squeaky clean, while falling in love with his boss Mary Kay. Her social and family ties turn her away from Joe—the real thing and look her in the face over the desk – but this time he is obliged not to do any harm. If he gently pushes the balance of justice (and true love) in his favor, it will certainly be good, right? Of course, this new beginning is followed by loose ends of its last known Address, which refuse to be tied cleanly.

You Love Me is a wild ride, full of twists and Slapstick Gore. It is also a metatext in a way. Joe’s passion with Mary Kay matches what we know about him, and his inner monologue full of references to television, music, film and books makes him a compelling anti-hero.

Mary Kay’s relationship with a Rocker from the golden Age of the Seattle Grunge scene is realistic, while her friends are more like over-drawn cartoons in an often hilarious way. A plot with a storyline based on Joe’s life is both a reminder of hidden bodies and a nod to the Netflix series based on the books.

Kepnes makes Joe convincing in a way that allows for brilliant sleight of hand. The surprises seem to come from nowhere, and the ending is truly surprising, but there is a relaxed flow as it all unfolds. You love me is funnier than you; Joe’s reluctance to roughness doesn’t mean the body count is low, and some of the passed aways are, to put it mildly, absolutely bonkers. The reader has to action with a charming, funny, well-read character, sensitive to a mistake-and also a monster. Start here if you want, but be prepared to read the whole series. It will really go under the skin.
