Today is my stop on the blog tour for The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides. That twist at the end!
Alicia Berenson writes a diary as a release, an outlet – and to prove to her beloved husband that everything is fine. She can’t bear the thought of worrying Gabriel, or causing him pain.
Until, late one evening, Alicia shoots Gabriel five times and then never speaks another word.
Forensic psychotherapist Theo Faber is convinced he can successfully treat Alicia, where all others have failed. Obsessed with investigating her crime, his discoveries suggest Alicia’s silence goes far deeper than he first thought.
And if she speaks, would he want to hear the truth?
That twist at the end!
Oh my goodness! I don’t think there is much I need to say to persuade you to read this book. It was the winner of Goodreads 2019 Best Thriller and Mystery and I wholeheartedly agree!
What’s most clever about this book is how the author makes you think you know and makes you think you have it all figure out… then wow, the twist hits you like no other. I did not see it coming at all. I thought I figured it out but I figured it out the wrong way… the story messes with your head and I have to say it creeps me out big time. It just gives you the chill whenever you think about it! It is gritty, creepy and sad. I feel sorry for all the characters but at the same time they are a group of fantastic and brilliant casts who make up an unforgettable story!
I still remember the goosebumps I got when the twist was revealed at the end and it was brilliant! There is one small question mark in my mind after finishing it. It keeps me thinking and guessing. I will need to read the book again to see if I can find answers to this question I have!
Thank you so much Amber and Midas PR for this copy to review! I thoroughly enjoyed it!
