    Description

    In the compulsively listenable follow-up to her widely acclaimed debut novel, You, Caroline Kepnes weaves a tale that Booklist calls "the love child of Holden Caulfield and Patrick Bateman". 

     2017 Audie Award Finalist for Thriller/Suspense

    Hidden Bodies marks the return of a voice that Stephen King described as original and hypnotic, and through the divisive and charmingly sociopathic character of Joe Goldberg, Kepnes satirizes and dissects our culture, blending suspense with scathing wit. 

    Joe Goldberg is no stranger to hiding bodies. In the past 10 years, this 30-something has buried four of them, collateral damage in his quest for love. Now he's heading west to Los Angeles, the city of second chances, determined to put his past behind him. 

    In Hollywood, Joe blends in effortlessly with the other young upstarts. He eats guac, works in a bookstore, and flirts with a journalist neighbor. But while others seem fixated on their own reflections, Joe can't stop looking over his shoulder. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don't always stay that way. They reemerge like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: true love. And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he's more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn't want to hurt his new girlfriend - he wants to be with her forever. But if she ever finds out what he's done, he may not have a choice....

    "Joe is unlikable, yet, as portrayed by narrator Santino Fontana, he's also transfixing.... Fontana is not a one-note narrator; he just knows how to stay true to character, hour after vengeful hour." ( AudioFile)

    Not as good as the first

    D*ck, p*ssy, f*ck. and repeat and repeat and repeat. I got really tired of hearing those specific words in both this and the first book. it got really monotonous and annoying. I don't feel it added to the story at all. also made it so I couldn't listen to this book while cooking dinner unless I wanted my kids to hear it.. which I don't.

    the first book was way better. this book got a bit dull. all that being said though.. this author has a way of making you root for the bad guy which makes you feel a little creepy. all in all the books were good and I'd read more by this author.

    I want Caroline Kepnes for my new best friend!

    Okay, I'm really beginning to worry about myself. I WANT a serial killer to evade the justice system. Joe's character works because he has many of the same thoughts about everyday life situations that we all do. The irritations of the idiots you meet everyday, but his thoughts are hilarious. Joe only works with the performance of Santino Fontana. His performance is perfection! If you can stand four letter words (an abundance of them, c-word included), and what to get into the charming mind of a serial killer, this is your book. Be sure to buy the 1st book before this one. It will set the stage.
    To my new BFF-Tell me more about Joe's childhood.

    Meh

    This book was not my favorite. It was just ok. I liked "You" a lot better. This just had too much going on.

    Like The Little Mermaid 2,this is a sequel alright

    Any additional comments?

    'You' was enthralling. 'You' was suspenseful, 'You' was a guilty pleasure. Hidden Bodies -- not so much. I wanted so, so badly to love it, just as I loved its predessecor. Hidden Bodies is not terrible (unless you're offended easily, and if so, steer clear!!!). It is not terrible, but it is all over the place--literally--and should probably have been half its length.

    Thank goodness for Fontana!!! He saves the day on this one, and kept me interested enough to keep listening. I think this book would have been unbearable to read on paper with SO. MUCH. RAMBLING. There are so many comments meant to sound satarical, but really just sound like a girl whining about other girls. Like I said, Fontana really saved so many passages with his tone and sarcasm. The character of Joe begins to feel more and more like a judgy girl throughout this book, and no longer the interesting and intelligent killer we weirdly love. Speaking of love, can I say how much I hate that there is a character named Love?

    All in all, if you loved You, give Hidden Bodies a chance. It's NOT terrible. If you didn't really care for You, definitely don't bother with this one.

    WOW!!!!!!

    This book was even better than the first book, You. The author makes the reader actually root for a psychopath. As for the other negative comments about bad language and garbage..... This book is about a serial killer, right? You know that going in. Joe is your average likable guy, who just happens to be a killer. Santino Fontana is perfection as a narrator. His voice flows like satin. Bravo! Can't wait to follow Joe's next adventure!

    A Dissapointing Follow-Up to "You"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Ugh, why did the author have to go and ruin a perfectly good character and story?! Disappointed in the direction the narrator chose to go.

    What was most disappointing about Caroline Kepnes’s story?

    "You" was fantastic. It was the kind of book that needs no sequel. I thought it ended brilliantly. However, being that I loved "You," I was very excited for Hidden Bodies. But things start to get sloppy in the narration and plot. Details that Caroline got away with in the first book become very unrealistic after constant coincidental happenings and killings that just magically seem to happen. Joe is able to kill and hide his crime scenes with just too much ease. There isn't enough detail to how he covers his tracks, and it just gets so unbelievable time after time. It eventually starts to repeatedly sound like "oh I pulled her hair and she died, and then dragged the body out to sea." That's about the extent of the detail of the crime and how he covers his tracks. It just becomes SOOO unrealistic. I think Caroline got away with this sloppiness in "You" because the plot and obsession with Beck drove the storyline forward, and there hadn't been much repetition of these crime scenes. At the end I was WISHING that Joe would get caught and thrown and jail forever. Like, COME ON. No one can just murder 5+ people without getting followed-up after he essentially doesn't cover his tracks much at all. Also, what kind of girl would just not care that her boyfriend is a serial killer and killed two of his previous girlfriends?! EXTREMELY unrealistic and really tarnished my opinion of Love. The way she responds to his explanation doesn't even make sense. He tells her he's a serial killer and she just responds with a story about how Forty and their dog? That makes NO sense. I just didn't feel there was a good plot or any good suspense in this book. "You" was so engaging and was driven forward by the Beck obsession. In Hidden Bodies, I felt the author just grasping for plot lines and repeating Joe's same old antics but in a sloppy and unrealistic way. Very disappointing follow up. My advaice would be if you want to wright a serial killer novel, and actually include realistic details about him covering his tracks and avoiding authorities. He would have SURELY been interrogated by police at some point...and not the same two police charatcers that he happened to have met before by chance. Too many unbeleivable coincidences in this book. The Robin Fincher, Henderson, and Delilah characters/ side plots were pointless and boring.

    What about Santino Fontana’s performance did you like?

    He's an amazing narrator...however, Forty's voice was very annoying.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Just listen to "You" and don't listen to this book. "You" ended perfectly. It did not need a sequel. Joe is a great character so I can see why the author wanted to continue to use him. However, that was an itch that should have remained unscratched.

    Any additional comments?

    I hope Joe finally gets thrown in jail after so many stupid and sloppy murders. How was he never interrogated for Henderson's murder?! I'm SURE there is surveillance footage that would show him...since this is a celebrity's home. Also police have ways of tracking emails and communications etc from missing or murdered people. I'm sure they would have been able to track Joe and his IP address from any of the communications he sent to Fincher, Delilah, and he would have been followed up as a suspect. I can't just stand by assuming there is no surveillance footage, detective work, or witnesses from any of these crime scenes.

    Certainly not You

    This is a sequel to the very good book "You". This is not a bad sequel, but nothing close to "You". It is still better than many in the genre, but is a bit pedestrian and definitely did not engage me in the story as "You" did.

    I will likely consider the next in the series with caution.

    Like "You" this is adult fiction and not appropriate for most young readers (and many older readers) due to language, sexual content, and extreme violence.

    The narration is excellent.

    struggled to finish. didnt

    loved the premiss and beginning. slowly devolved into a ' I had this great sex' and 'see how great I am in bed' and ' I had more great sex' in L.A.'. Yuk. still searching for a great listen.

    I liked the tv show better

    Very different portrait of Joe than TV series You. The series paints him as a twisted, love sick guy who gets in over his head and murders people, but never intentionally. This Joe is a premeditated killer. Please tell me there's a 3rd book in the works. That ending was very anticlimactic given the build-up.

    Not as great as the first

    I absolutely loved You. I think about that book so often. It was so raw and gritty in all the best possible ways. I knew that this sequel would have big shoes to fill and I was excited after reading all the glowing reviews. However, it was not AS great as the first.

    My first issue was the story line. It was all over this place and I felt like it was being pieced together as she went along. I didn't look at is as a fluid story line where everything just fit into place. It was still engaging and fun but it did not leave me with the same gut punch that the first left.

    I also feel as though Santino Fontana held back in this performance. In You, he had such a driven madness to his words. You felt like you were truly in the mind of a crazed, obsessed killer. He didn't bring quite the same level to this performance. He's still great, but not AS great.

    I am still glad I listened to this and have thoroughly enjoyed the series.

    Not at the level of the first

    The description of the LA scene is majestic but Joe has lost a lot of his flair and “sense” for what he’s doing. He appears to be killing randomly and the killing gets somehow annoying after a while. The final gives some hope. The first one is for sure at another level

    Joe is back

    Hidden Bodies is the sequel to You, which should be read first.
    You was one of my favorite audiobooks last year, so I was super excited to listen to Hidden Bodies, but also slightly apprehensive whether Joe's return would live up to my expectations. I needn't have worried. Joe has mellowed a bit, in my opinion, but his lookout on the world is still as entertaining as ever. "Humans. I will never understand."
    I love how his mind works (I know I shouldn't), he is a depraved serial killer after all. But he is really trying hard to fit in this time. For Love ('Love' would have been the perfect title, shame it was changed). He even joins Facebook. Some of the references to social media and popular culture were hilarious. If you didn't like You, you probably won't like this, as there is still plenty of foul language and explicit scenes that may disturb some listeners. I didn't actually find this sequel quite as dark or twisted as the first book, but I just love Joe. It'll be a long, desperate wait for book 3.

    Santino Fontano narrates the audiobook and once again his performance is stellar. The way he delivers some of the one-liners and Joe's internal monologue is out of this world.

    Very witty, clever and highly original psychological thriller. Highly recommended.
