Book: The Silent Patient
Author: Alex Michaelides
Genre: Mystery & Thriller
Alicia Berenson lived a seemingly perfect life until one day six years ago.
When she shot her husband in the head five times.
Since then she hasn’t spoken a single word.
It’s time to find out why.
I was instantly hooked to the story from page one. Halfway through the book, I felt as if it was all filler. But the way the author connected all the loose ends and gave a bomb of an ending *claps*. Two aspects of the story were blended so well. The main character is silent and does not speak. So, the psychotherapist is trying to get some answers. That element hooked me to the story as well. Every chapter arose questions and I did not see the ending coming. Overall a perfect psychological thriller with twisty turns!
What I Liked:
- Short chapters with arising questions.
- The story is narrated through the eyes of the therapist.
- The silence of the main character hooked me to the story.
- Unexpected plot twist.
- Bomb of an ending!
