Seriously late to the party on this one. I am 40 pages in and Joe is a CREEP. 👀

If we were teenagers, I could kiss you. But I‘m on a platform behind a counter wearing a name tag and we‘re too old to be young.

I‘m so conflicted about this, I don‘t really know how to review it. On one hand, it was compulsory readable. I just couldn‘t stop. On the other hand, Joe‘s obsessiveness, jealousy, and sexism scared me so much, because that‘s real. It isn‘t a fictionalised monster, they are real problems in the world. And it made me so uncomfortable to read about. So yeah, not really sure how I feel right now.

#SocialMediaFocus last book for #Booked2019, tho! 🙌

4thhouseontheleft Great review! Congrats on finishing up the challenge! 5d
MicheleinPhilly I couldn‘t agree with you more. I enjoyed reading this book but the fetishization of Joe that I see all over the internet makes me want to puke. 5d
squirrelbrain I agree with your review - it made me quite uncomfortable.... 5d

Christine Well said. 5d
batsy Yup, I agree. I felt the same. Compulsively readable and as a book I liked it a lot, but the way in which the book is talked about by fans is deeply unsettling. 4d
Cinfhen Congrats on completing #Booked2019 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉I approached YOU as a totally fictional story but I can see your point about Joe. (edited) 4d
Kalalalatja @batsy reading your comment makes me so happy, because I realise I wanted to use “compulsively”, not compulsory 😅 I knew it was wrong, I just couldn‘t remember the right word, so thanks! 4d
Kalalalatja @4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen thanks! Now I just have to start planning for #booked2020, but I‘m waiting to see which books I get for Christmas before I settle on anything 😄 4d
Kalalalatja @MicheleinPhilly @squirrelbrain @christine @batsy Joe gave me a big Incel-vibe, the way he blamed everybody else for everything and his misogynistic attitude. Just beyond creepy 4d

I started listening to this today on my drive to work, and oh my, Joe is a creep! I know I‘m late to the party, and so far, I‘m not sure I‘m that glad I joined 😅

Used for #SocialMediaFocus for #Booked2019

Sace I read this one. I think listening to it would be too scary! 😱 1w
ElizaMarie I read it at first then I relistened to it and I really preferred the audio. Joe is so so creepy! 1w
Leftcoastzen It seems like he‘s kinda yelling at the listener sometimes. 1w
Kalalalatja @Sace I haven‘t gotten to the really scary parts yet, I‘m just so creeped out by how stalkerish, misogynistic, obsessive and possessive Joe is. @ElizaMarie @Leftcoastzen I like the narrator, so far, but he gets intense at times! 7d
ElizaMarie I liked it both narrated and read. Also liked how he talks to the audience in the show. The second season comes out soon. I‘m super excited! 7d

I didn‘t know anything about this book prior to reading it. It‘s not what I expected, but it is entertaining. I‘ll keep on reading it to see what develops...

cassiopia I listened to the audiobooks for this series. Loved it! 3w
SqueakyChu @cassiopia My husband had a funny reaction to this book which I found for him. He read a few pages and then stopped because he said the beginning of the book was “too creepy”. That was five years ago. I kept the book because I like “creepy” reads! 😃 3w
cassiopia Then he would not have liked the audio version. Although I found them to be very entertaining 😂 3w
SqueakyChu @cassiopia I just discovered that this was also made into a Netflix series. Interesting! 3w
SqueakyChu I loved this book. Got the sequel to this book at the library yesterday! 😃 (edited) 24h

I‘ve been wanting to read this ever since I watched the Netflix series. Getting started on it now.

BookBoggart I may have to do a reread of both before season 2 comes out next month! 1mo
