Having struggled through Clarissa by Samuel Richardson in college, I was interested to see the modern, refreshing take. And it was great. A creepy, mysterious thriller, The Book of You was a quick and enjoyable read.

Very spooky concept, although somewhat predictable. Writing was compelling and conjures up real fear in the reader. A nice first novel.

"After a disturbing evening with a colleague about which she remembers little but suspects plenty, university administrator Clarissa Bourne becomes the unwilling target of this man's constant texts, calls, visits, and gifts. Jury duty comes as a relief, until Clarissa realises that the violent crime unfolding in front of the jury box has parallels to her own life -- and demonstrates just how easily her experiences could be discredited. Her colleague's obsession with her has crossed the line between fantasy and reality, and his threats escalate as she begins friendships with other jurors. "Troubling, raw, and gripping" says Publishers Weekly of this suspenseful debut."
