5 Star Review
Oh Joe. Joe. Joe. Joe. What a wonderful, twisted mind you have! You leave my soul feeling dark, just the way I like it. Your fascination with life leaves me with a twisted smirk on my face!
Welcome back to the world of Joe. If you have read his first book (and YOU better have), YOU, then you have a little incling of what I mean. But just a little. This continuation of the story of Joe is so much more and so much more twisted than the beginning. This one will have your inner sinister persona laughing and clapping.
Yes, you guessed it. More murder. More stalking. More danger. More of everything. I could not have enjoyed this story any more than I did. I read this MONTHS ago and have been itching for everyone else to read it. I needed a support group after this book. I needed daily meetings. Who is in for a Joe support group? You will need it after this book!
I want to dig around in Caroline's head. What makes it tick? How does it create such wonderful, twisted plots? How does this messed up material materialize in her brain? Then getting the words to paper? Such a genius Caroline Kepnes is. Pure. Genius.
As I wove my way through Joe's new journey, I couldn't imagine where Caroline was going to take me. I sat there soaking up every word, shaking my pom-poms cheering Joe on. He is the perfect anti-hero hero. He is the best villian you will find. And you will be on his villianous side. I promise. As the story plays on, I am thinking happy ever after for Joe... Then the ending came...
The ending. (Insert a bunch of swear words here since I can't type them. I mean I could, but Amazon won't post my review if I do.) What can I say? Well, nothing really. I can't tell you how this ends. I can tell you that I messaged Caroline right away begging and begging for information. Just so you know, she refused to give it to me. Denied. Yes, I was denied. Damn her.
Basically, what I am telling you is that this book is a MUST read. MUST. READ. If you haven't read YOU yet, then do so. Then read this. Don't read this until you have read YOU. I mean, technically you could read this without reading the first book. But if you did, you wouldn't get the full effect that is Joe and you will be missing some key pieces to the story. Hidden Bodies will make more sense when read after YOU.
P.S. READ THIS BOOK!
