  1. I don t get the hype on this one at all I m glad so many loved it because it eases my conscience a little about having to give it such a poor review, but I just don t understand how there could be so many comments on social media about this being the best book people have read all year I mean, people are going absolutely crazy over it As usual with this publisher, the marketing and promotions were outstanding I totally bought into all the initial excitement The advance copy came belly banded wit [...]


  2. What makes Gone Girl and Sharp Objects then just cheesy page turners is the quality of the writing What makes The Silent Patient such a tacky slog is the consistently lazy, cliche ridden, dumbed down prose Who cares about a mystery when you have to trudge through page after page of sophomoric prose


  3. Could have been character development Everyone was just a little bit manic Beginning was slow, ending felt rushed Certainly not the must read everyone is making it out to be Could have been better.


  4. 4.5 Stars, Spoiler Free ReviewI decided to go into this novel with a clean slate, a blank canvas no pun intended I didn t read any reviews because I didn t want to see something that would give me any clues, either intentionally or unintentionally When I know there s a twist, or if I see hints of something, I usually figure out what s going on So I entered this story in the dark, curious to find what I would discover.This is definitely an experience For me, the author s words painted a vivid pic [...]



  5. SPOILERS PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS Hopefully that s enough.I ended up hating this book It was a complete cheat A good twist is one you don t see coming, but if you go back and reread the book, the clues were there You just didn t put it together At the very least, nothing in the book is an outright lie or intentionally misleading What a good twist is not is a first person POV narrator presenting events as if they re happening at the current ti [...]


  6. Alex Michaelides is an author to watch This is his first novel, and it is a humdinger It is a murder mystery, told from the point of view of a psychotherapist who switches jobs so he can try to help Alicia, the silent patient of the title Alicia is accused of shooting her husband in the face 6 years ago, and hasn t spoken since The psychotherapist tries unsuccessfully to talk to Alicia, and then talks to her friends and family Lots of issues arise during his investigation He is also dealing with [...]


  7. This is indeed the perfect thriller Beautifully written, characters so real you feel like they re right there in the room with you A truly surprise ending, but one that makes perfect sense The word Perfect sums it up This novel is flat out perfect Read it.


  8. I don t normally write reviews but on this occasion I feel so annoyed at being conned out of my fiver by the book industry moguls that I simply had to have my say.I succumbed to the hype and purchased this book only to end up being painfully almost literally disappointed Like many of the other poor reviews I read on and mercifully there are enough of them to support my opinion , this book is an example of how anything can make millions of it s marketed well enough But it s so unfair to some of t [...]


  9. so that you don t have to The narrative is split between a psychotherapist who seems to have just picked up his first how to manual and is determined to share it with us, and the least convincing diary I have ever read Don t read this book unless you enjoy flat, predictable prose and unconvincing characterisation.Lovers of big twists may be tempted, but I found it both predictable and, paradoxically, implausible The Stephen Fry who declares this to be brilliant on the dust cover can t be the Ste [...]
