    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 with a fictional newspaper article about the crime, which I thought was really fun. As far as the story goes, I’d expected something fast-paced, engaging and suspenseful, but feel like I got a slow-moving, go-nowhere book that wasn’t even redeemed by the supposedly big twist at the end. The style is very generic (even for its genre), with pages of dialog that did nothing to further the story or give depth to any of the characters. The whole book just seemed like filler.

    I’m in the minority here so chalk this one up to personal preference, I guess.

    What makes Gone Girl and Sharp Objects more 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?

    Amazing psychological thriller!, February 5, 2019

    This review is from: The Silent Patient (Kindle Edition)
    Whoa! This was brilliant!

    This book right here is the reason that I love psychological thrillers. This has become an overly saturated genre with every one taking a stab at writing these twisty little thrillers but more often than not they fall flat. It takes a talented mind and writer to pull off a really shocking twist successfully. Alex Michaelides has done just that because I did not see that coming at all and for that I thank you! *claps hands*

    Alicia Berenson appears to have it all. She’s a successful painter and her husband, Gabriel, is a famous fashion photographer. What would drive this seemingly happy woman to shoot her husband five times in the face only to never speak again? Psychotherapist, Theo Faber, is desperate to work with Alicia to see if he can breakthrough her silence to finally find out the truth.

    That’s it. That’s all you get. I don’t want anyone to be spoiled. I suggest not reading too many reviews as it is inevitable that some jerk will spill the beans. Don’t be that jerk!

    If this is any inclination as to the type of reading year 2019 is going to be then HURRAH! Dare I say that this has made it to my “favorites” shelf. Highest recommendation! All the twisted stars!

    Thank you to Celadon Books and Alex Michaelides for kindly sending me an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
