Caroline Kepnes könyvei a rukkolán


Caroline Kepnes - Providence
A ​propulsive new thriller about the obsessive nature of love when an intensifying relationship between best friends is disrupted by a kidnapping. Growing up as best friends in small-town New Hampshire, Jon and Chloe are the only ones who truly understand each other, though they can never find the words to tell one another the depth of their feelings. When Jon is finally ready to confess his feelings, he's suddenly kidnapped by his substitute teacher who is obsessed with H.P. Lovecraft and has a plot to save humanity. Mourning the disappearance of Jon and facing the reality he may never return, Chloe tries to navigate the rites of entering young adulthood and "fit in" with the popular crowd, but thoughts of Jon are never far away. When Jon finally escapes, he discovers he now has an uncontrollable power that endangers anyone he has intense feelings for. He runs away to protect Chloe and find the answers to his new identity--but he's soon being tracked by a detective who is fascinated by a series of vigilante killings that appear connected. Whisking us on a journey through New England and crashing these characters' lives together in the most unexpected ways, Kepnes explores the complex relationship between love and identity, unrequited passion and obsession, self-preservation and self-destruction, and how the lines are often blurred between the two.

Caroline Kepnes - You ​Love Me
The ​highly anticipated new thriller in Caroline Kepnes’s hit You series, now a blockbuster Netflix show—a compulsively readable trip into the deviant mind of the uniquely antisocial, savvy bookseller . . . Joe Goldberg. Joe is done with the cities. He’s done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now, he’s saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cozy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe. He gets a job at the local library—he does know a thing or two about books—and that’s where he meets her: Mary Kay DiMarco. Librarian. Joe won’t meddle, he will not obsess. He’ll win her the old-fashioned way . . . by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, they’ll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town. The trouble is . . . Mary Kay already has a life. She’s a mother. She’s a friend. She’s . . . busy. True love can only triumph if both people are willing to make room for the real thing. Joe cleared his decks. He’s ready. And hopefully, with his encouragement and undying support, Mary Kay will do the right thing and make room for him.

Caroline Kepnes - Tu
Atunci ​când o tânără și frumoasă scriitoare aspirantă intră în librăria din New York în care lucrează Joe Goldberg, el face ceea ce ar face oricine în situația lui: îi caută pe Google numele pe care l-a aflat de pe cartea de credit. Este doar o singură Guinevere Beck în întreaga metropolă. Ea are un profil public de Facebook și postează pe Twitter neîncetat, dezvăluindu-i lui Joe tot ce ar avea nevoie să știe: se recomandă pur și simplu Beck, pentru prietenii ei, a urmat cursurile la Universitatea Brown, locuiește pe Bank Street și va fi la un bar din Brooklyn diseară – locul perfect pentru o întâlnire „întâmplătoare”. Pe măsură ce Joe capătă în mod invizibil și obsesiv controlul asupra vieții lui Beck, el orchestrează o serie de evenimente pentru a se asigura că Beck nimerește în brațele lui primitoare. Trecând de la statutul de hărțuitor din umbră la cel de iubit oficial, Joe se transformă în bărbatul visurilor lui Beck, totul în timp ce, pe tăcute, înlătură orice obstacol care i-ar putea sta în cale. Chiar dacă asta ar însemna să ucidă. Sophie Hannah „Un thriller excepțional, cu atitudine, fără jenă și cu o adevărată intuiție asupra naturii obsesiilor.“ Stephen King „Hipnotizant.“

Caroline Kepnes - Hidden ​Bodies
After ​the heartbreak of losing his girlfriend, Beck, Joe Goldberg thought he’d never love again. But when mysterious Amy Adam begins working for Joe at Mooney Books, he finds himself obsessed with his new employee. Amy is Beck’s opposite - she hates Twitter, she doesn’t even have an email address, she’s completely unsearchable online - and she quickly captures Joe’s heart. But just before Joe can ask Amy to marry him, she disappears, leaving a trail of clues in her wake. Joe is then forced to do something so vile, so awful that he nearly loses his mind: he moves to Los Angeles to find Amy. He is tortured by a series of aspiring Angelenos - an insufferable stand-up comedian, philistine booksellers, a money-hungry nanny, and a slutty ghostwriter - before meeting his ticket to a more luxurious world: a surgically enhanced, social media–savvy heiress named Love Quinn. But Joe can’t stop stalking Amy, despite the world opening up to him with Love on his arm. Will Joe finally escape his sordid past? Or is Love just the latest casualty in Joe’s unrelenting search for the perfect match?

Caroline Kepnes - Elrejtett ​testek
Joe ​Goldberg megszállottan keresi a szerelmet, és ezért szó szerint mindenre hajlandó. Nemrég úgy vélte, megtalálta élete párját, ám hiába távolított el minden zavaró tényezőt az útjukból, Beck végül nem értette meg, így a lány a többi elrejtett testhez került. Joe most Los Angelesbe tart, a lehetőségek városába, és eltökélten készül maga mögött hagyni a múltját. Hollywoodban kényelmesen elvegyül a hasonszőrű fiatal pályakezdők között, ám az elrejtett testekkel az a baj, hogy olykor elő-előbukkannak, mint sötét gondolatok, és most azzal fenyegetik Joe-t, hogy elpusztítják szíve vágyát: a végre megtalált igaz szerelmet. Nem akar ártani új szerelmének - örökké vele akar lenni. De ha a lány valaha is rájön, hogy mit tett, lehet, hogy nem marad más választása...

Caroline Kepnes - Te
Joe ​Goldberg, egy kis East Village-i könyvesbolt eladója egy nap úgy érzi, valóra vált az álma, mikor besétál a boltba egy fiatal írópalánta, Guinevere Beck. Beck megtestesíti mindazt, amire Joe valaha is vágyott: gyönyörű, vagány, okos, és hihetetlenül szexi - egyszerűen tökéletes. Joe rafinált módon kezdi behálózni Becket, és hála a lány okostelefonjának, Instagram-, Twitter- és Facebook-fiókjának, hamarosan sikerül is közel kerülnie hozzá. De Joe még sokkal többre is képes, hogy hatalmába kerítse rajongása tárgyát. És vajon Beck valóban olyan angyali és ártatlan teremtés, amilyennek Joe látja? Vagy ő még sokkal sötétebb titkokat rejteget? Caroline Kepnes kötete vérfagyasztó beszámoló a könyörtelen, eszelős szerelemről. Betekintést enged egy mániákus elméjébe, hasonlóképp, mint John Fowles híres regénye, A lepkegyűjtő. Perverz módon romantikus thriller, amely az utolsó oldalig izgalomban tartja az olvasót.

Caroline Kepnes - You
“[A] ​beautifully crafted thriller that will give you chills.” (People magazine) From debut author Caroline Kepnes comes You, one of Suspense Magazine’s Best Books of 2014, and a brilliant and terrifying novel for the social media age. When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card. There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting. As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder. A terrifying exploration of how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation, debut author Caroline Kepnes delivers a razor-sharp novel for our hyper-connected digital age. You is a compulsively readable page-turner that’s being compared to Gone Girl, American Psycho, and Stephen King’s Misery.
