    Definitely recommended

    I hardly ever write reviews - too keen to get on with my next book. However, this book is worth making an exception. The writing is excellent, the characters totally believable, and the plot unusually clever. It was so totally absorbing that I couldn’t put it down. I look forward to Alex Michaelides’ next book

    A joy to read

    When Alicia’s husband is found tied up next to her shot 5 times at point blank she is sentenced for his murder. But she hasn’t spoken a word since that day, not even in her defence – so what really happened? The Silent Patient was one of those stories that was just a joy to read. I put down my notes page and found myself completely hooked on the story – finishing it in almost one session! It’s well crafted, switching perspectives between psychologist Theo and snippets from Alicia’s diary which drip feed you just enough information to keep you guessing throughout. The plot itself is well paced, it never felt like it was dragging or being drawn out. There were some very well-rounded characters in the book as well – most of them not particularly nice but this helped to leave you guessing what happened to Alicia right up until the final moments. No spoilers of course but the ending is brilliant – very well thought out and surprised me completely which was lovely. I’ve read quite a lot of thrillers this year already so I was worried I was beginning to find them a little predictable but this one left me in shock! This is a rather short review but that is because it was just a joy to read – go pick it up and see for yourself! Thank you to NetGalley & Orion Publishing Group for a chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Not very good!!

    Not a very good ‘twist’ or psychologic thriller at all!!!! Was expecting big things after reading the reviews... twist was ok, but too many unexplained things & loose ends that didn’t make sense

    What An Absolute Cracker

    As first novels go, this sets a benchmark. Just to say "Well, I didn't expect that" is the understatement of a very long life. When you see it, when you read it, you'll wonder how on earth you missed it. Such is the excellence of Alex Michaelides' writing, such is the subtlety, that I am actually grateful for not catching on. Well played, sir. Very well played indeed.

    Couldn’t put it down

    This book had me keep wanting to read more. It was well paced in terms of twists and the plot. There were many possible culprits who could have done it. I definitely didn’t see the ending turning out the way that it did. It was a surprise. I read this book in two days. I couldn’t put it down. Definitely a page turner.
