The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides – Book Review





D73A1CBC-0DB1-486B-A3C3-10A95727DEEFAlicia Berenson’s husband Gabriel had been murdered, shot in the face while tied to a chair. Alicia was found stood by him, covered in his blood, a gun close by.  Alicia doesn’t speak a word.

She is then found guilty of the murder and institutionalised, silent.

Theo, a psychotherapist, joins The Grove and shows an interest in helping Alicia, to get her to speak again. Maybe she wasn’t guilty after all. He is given her diary, which tells of an unknown man, watching her, but no one believes her as something similar had happened after the death of her father.

The story is cleverly written, by Alex Michaelides, with chapters from Alicia before the murder, and from Theo’s perspective as her therapist, along with his own personal issues. Wow, the ending…..

I know this is a cliche, but I really couldn’t put it down and finished it late at night. There are some really original twists and turns with great characters in this fast paced psychological thriller. Brilliant.

I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest revivew
