|Hidden Bodies by Carline Kepnes|
YOU was just so cleverly done and different than the other books I have read in that genre. The narrator, Joe, is a sociopathic murderer... but somehow funny, and even occasionally sympathetic and someone you can kind of identify with.
There was a point about mid-way through Hidden Bodies when I grew a little tired of it and started skimming. I was having this feeling of, "This is so similar to the previous book, and I already read that one!" BUT fortunately, I got sucked back in soon enough and it was a fast page turner up until the very end. And guess what? There's going to be a third book of Joe. I heard the author interviewed on a podcast and she confirmed that to be true.
Honestly, just one book of Joe would have been enough for me. And although Hidden Bodies is a continuation of Joe's story, you could read either book without reading the other and it would still feel like a complete and satisfying thriller. If you just can't get enough of Joe's story, you can read the next one. And eventually the next. But don't wait as long as I did in between or you'll forget the previous book anyway... ;)
I'm even more interested to read what comes after this three part book series for Caroline Kepnes.
For now, it's on to the next book- by an author I have never read before.
