Joe is managing a bookstore in downtown New York when he meets Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail), who he becomes wildly obsessed with. Seriously, we mean obsessed.

You is based on Caroline Kepnes' novel of the same name and just over a week after its release, everyone is raving about it.

The series has been such a hit that it has already been commissioned for a second season, and it will follow the story of the sequel novel, Hidden Bodies.

What's more concerning than the fact Joe becomes immediately obsessed with Beck after their encounter is the lengths he's willing to go to, to place himself into her life.

For the most part, the storyline follows the book, however anyone who's read Kepnes' novel and watched the series will know, the ending differs.

Like in the book, the series ends with Joe killing Beck (shocking, we know) but Candace, Joe's ex girlfriend turns up at his bookstore and tells him: "I think we have some unfinished business to talk about."

However, in the book Joe murders Candace on Brighton Beach in Brooklyn after she ended their relationship.

In the novel, Joe said: "It wasn't my fault that Candace followed me down to the water's edge and it wasn't my fault that I picked her up and held her down in the water and watched her pass on to the great beyond.

"It wasn't my fault that Candace followed me down to the water's edge and it wasn't my fault that I picked her up and held her down in the water and watched her pass on to the great beyond.
