Their tragic storyline was completely made for the TV series — in the book, there's no beating from Ron in fact, Joe gets beat by a former employee, Curtis, in the book on page , there are no hospital visits or drug overdoses to humanize Joe, and there is definitely no Paco for Joe to look after.
On the TV series, Benji is the owner of an artisanal soda company.
In the book, Benji is actually the proud owner of an "organic club soda company that symbolizes everything bad about right now. One thing does remain the same between the book and movie: Benji is a narcissist who happens to really be allergic to peanuts and could care less about Beck. Unfortunately, the TV show does change a significant part of Benji's storyline, having him reveal to Joe that he killed one of his friends and caught the whole thing on tape.
This detail was perhaps added to help Benji look like more of a bad guy, making Joe seem a bit "justified" in killing the rival suitor. In the book, Beck isn't a broke student who really needs a job — at least there's not much of an indication that she is anyway.
On the TV show, she's a yoga teacher who has to balance early morning classes with her tough teaching assistant schedule. But in the book, she's none of those things — and there's also no inappropriate mentor threatening to remove her from said fictional vocation.

In the book, Beck lives in an apartment meant for Brown graduates pursuing a graduate degree in New York City. She won the apartment by writing a winning essay for The Brownstone Biased Lottery. And, while she could probably afford curtains, both the show and book maintain that Beck's apartment windows remain bare, allowing Joe to do all of his peeping activity unobstructed. And, while we're on the topic of Beck's finances, in the book, Peach never offers to give Beck money to hold her over like she does on the show.

Beck's influencer friend Annika is a character created solely for the Lifetime series.
In the book, Beck's go-to friends are Chana and Lynn. Neither character plays a major role in the book, hardly interacting with Joe at all. On the other hand, the TV show frequently depicts Beck's friends hanging out with Peach, but in the book, Peach likes to keep Beck's other friends at bay and neither girl seems to mind as they dislike Peach. Read More: Here's the spoiler-free explainer of every character on 'You'. On the show, Beck and Joe accidentally run into Maddie Johnson at one of Peach's parties, where Johnson slyly asks about Candace moving to Italy and ghosting literally everyone she's ever known — planting seeds of suspicion in Beck's head.
But this doesn't happen in the book as Johnson isn't a character in Kepnes original novel. Elijah, the guy Joe was supposed to have killed after finding out he slept with Candace, is also not in the novel. And neither is Raj, who has an interesting sleepover with Peach and Beck in Greenwich. In the novel, the reader doesn't get too much insight into who Candace was — other than she was one of Joe's previous girlfriends who he killed.
On the show, however, Candace is given a whole storyline. She's an angsty musician who eventually signs with a producer that she's also sleeping with before moving to Rome.
By Invitation Only
Oh, and contrary to the TV show, Beck never tries to investigate what happened to Candace in the books — the reader isn't even sure Beck even knows who she is. At the end of Kepnes novel, Joe actually meets a new woman in his bookstore, a woman we only know as Amy Adam, a credit card thief. In the book, Joe encounters Candace.
Candace's reappearance at the end of the season is unexpected, hinting towards an exciting and off-book season two of "You. Read More: Everything we know so far about 'You' season 2. In the book, Peach does think she has a stalker but doesn't mention that she believes it is Joe. She also doesn't attack Joe with a gun after finding him in her vacation house. On the TV series, it's implied that Joe shoots Peach. And Peach's suicide note is left, typed, on her laptop.
The Poldark novels by Winston Graham in order
In the book, Joe kills Peach on the beach, sending an ambiguous note to Beck from her phone before filling her pockets with rocks and dumping her lifeless body in the ocean. Unlike on the TV series, no one notices that Peach has died for a few weeks and there's no commotion surrounding her death and definitely no private investigator looking into her alleged suicide. Joe isn't the stealthiest stalker on the show. In fact, he gets caught at the Dickens Festival red-handed, but quickly lies to Beck and is then invited to a super awkward Beck family dinner.
However, in the book, Joe actually purchased a Dickensian costume and a beard, although that is not of the Dickensian type to blend in at the celebration. He loses his beard after violently puking while onboard a ferry and is almost caught by Beck but he makes it out of the whole ordeal unseen.
