Publisher's Summary

From the author of the highly acclaimed You ["Hypnotic and scary." (Stephen King)] comes an equally terrifying and addictive new thriller.

Joe came to Los Angeles to start over, to forget about what happened in New York. But in a darkened room in Soho House, everything suddenly changed.

She is like no one he's ever met before. She doesn't know about his past and never can. The problem is, hidden bodies don't always stay that way.

Kepnes should’ve stopped at just “You”

The narrator’s soothing voice and Kepnes writing style is all that kept me hooked until the end. But I struggled to keep listening. Was nothing like the first book. I wasn’t able to empathise with Joe like the last book and the characters of Love & Forty just seemed ridiculous. The ending ended up annoying me a bit too. It’s a shame but I felt the death scenes were less gripping and the sex scenes were like that from the mind of a teenage boy. Meh. Wouldn’t recommend.

Celeb Crazy

The first book in this series was so great so I thought I'd try the second. Eh. Not too impressed. It was a bit strange with all the celebrity name drops, so often. It seemed like every few sentences there was a 'dinner with Amy Adams', 'coke with James Franco', 'drinks with Seth Rogan', 'Meryl Streep gave me a hug'. It was odd. It was nice and twisty towards the end though. Did not like that Forty character. And the way that Joe had to keep so many secrets about everything he was doing and thinking, even when it seemed unnecessary and pointless was a bit annoying. Saying all that I would still read another Caroline Kepnes book. This one has to be a one off miss. I just know it.

A great sequel

This follow up to 'You' is just as thrilling and enjoyable. You really root for Joe and get locked into his thoughts. Definitely worth the read.

Compelling

If you could sum up Hidden Bodies in three words, what would they be?

Dark, compelling, unputdownable!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hidden Bodies?

When Forty turns the tables on Joe - but there's really too many to mention. The dialogue is spot on and occasionally laugh out loud.

Have you listened to any of Santino Fontana’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Love his narration...he's an excellent 'Joe.'

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh in the same way the show 'Dexter' does.

Any additional comments?

Very well written books - but you must read 'You' first. I was actually rooting for Joe at the end of 'Hidden Bodies' and I hope there' s a sequel. The narration is excellent, I listened to both 'You' and 'Hidden Bodies' within a week! Only thing I'd warn about is both books have quite a few 'sex' scenes which some people may not like and a couple of uses of the 'C*** word.

Jo is back and as deliciously evil as before

Having listened to You with a fascination that both horrified and entertained I wanted to find out what happens next

I was not disappointed- jo mind and viewpoint is as warped twisted and self obsessed as ever - and his new love Love seems to have similar dark twisted secrets

Was hooked again and drawn in - and left wondering - what happens next 😀

unprepared

Unprepared for this book, not knowing what will happen it surprised me. It all started off good with the main character. Sort of a "Hey nice to meet you" which rapidly switches to "you silly goose" & "omg what!?". Then eventually you slip into a love hate relationship and although you sometimes hate him you don't want to put this book down.

It's a good story, love the performance and great suspense!

Not quite what I thought

Liked the narrator . Wasn't keen on the graphic sexual references. Shouldn't really be in the crime/thriller section

Not as good as 'You' but still a terrific story.

Loads if twists and turns, and a few shocking moments. It's really good and well worth a listen/read though I personally thought 'You' had the edge.
