One of my favorite books

This book is so good. Exactly what you want in a thriller - interesting characters, unpredictable plot twists, and an ending so crazy I actually said “oh my god!” out loud while reading.

Loved this book!

One of my top favorites! Seriously couldn't put it down and I loved the plot twist!!

What a page-turner!

The story line was very well written and piqued interest so that you couldn’t put the book down!


Took me a few chapters to get in but then couldn’t stop reading!


Finished it in 2 days

One of my favorites

This book keeps you on edge! I finished in three days because I just couldn't put it down. I truly felt like I was living in the story. The details make you feel like you're right there! So many twists to the story but what a plot twist at the end...never expected it!!! I'm definitely going to read another one of Alex's books to see if this is he's style of writing! I absolutely love it!

the first and best book i ever read!!!

I hate reading. I used to be that student that look up summaries of each chapter on sparknotes so that I don't have to read for english class. I HATE READING with a passion. I get bored so fast. But this book.... this book right here changed my whole perspective on books. Now I can't stop reading. This book was so good, i finished it in 2 days. I have a 9-5pm job, and I was able to finish it in 2 days. SO GOOD!

I def didn’t see that coming!

I thought I had it figured out 4x lol. I really liked this book!


So good. And the twist! Omg. Never saw it coming!!!

Great twist

I really enjoyed the twists in this book. You don’t get too awfully involved with the characters, but it’s one of my favorite reads in the past month or so.

A great twist!

Wow, wow wow wow wow wow. I LOVED this book. It was super captivating from end to finish. It slowly unraveled before me and I was smiling as I finished the book. I don’t want to spoil anything just pick up the book!


Some parts where a little slow.. but the last few chapters, I never seen that coming..highly recommend!!

Nope. Do not waste time.

This was the only audio book I returned to audible. It started off so well. Interesting premise. I was willing to ignore the twirling mustache secondary characters but the “twist” is not a twist. Its a stupid stunt that does not work.

favorite book

was shown this book through a friend and couldn’t put it down once i started. i finished in 2 days 🧍🏼‍♀️ you won’t regret buying this

Great psychological thriller!

This was a fast pace book that I didn't want to put down. It kept me guessing to the end.

Good thriller!

Did NOT see that ending coming. Great story line, well written.

Loved it!

I received the book not too long ago and already finished with it. Absolutely loved it!

Not quite as good as anticipated, but not bad

It was an ok read. I should have seen the plot twist coming


I feel like some chapters were so unnecessary. Suuuuuper hard read for me. So slow. And the twist wasn’t even that good :((( I had such high hopes for this book and I was disappointed.

Amazing and captivating!

I love a good mystery novel with a twist and this book definitely delivers! I won’t say it is my favourite book of all time but it will grip you from beginning to end. So easy to read and lots of different angles, this book didn’t disappoint.

Amazing plot twist!

The book does a fascinating job describing each character and their purpose. I wish I could read the book again for the first time, such suspense.

I loved this book!

This book is so good. The twist is amazing.

Great read

A page turner without a doubt. Crazy ending! Just become a fan of this author and ordered his next book as well.

Loved it!

This was a fantastic book! I really really enjoyed it. It was full of plot twists that really threw my for a loop. This is one of those "I'll read just one more chapter..." books that will keep you up late reading if you let it. The characters are very well written. Between one character's diary entries and near complete silence in the present, and another's investigations into the murder, it is very pasted paced and punchy. Each character introduced through the investigation is made to seem suspicious and sometimes very creepy to throw you off the scent. It is a classic case of the unreliable narrator, and you yourself begins to question who to believe. This being said, there were occasionally things that can be seen as plot holes but they were never a deal breaker for me.

This book is insane!

Face paced reading and mind blowing plot twist I never saw coming. Don't miss this one

Good luck putting this book down

This book is so entertaining, suspenseful and has the craziest twists and turns. You will not regret reading it!

Best book ive read in 2019

I listened to this on audible and it was absolutely mind blowing, thrilling, and I was sucked into the story

such a fun twist

I believe this is Alex Michaelides first book. If so, I hope for many more. This book had fun twists and turns and I loved how it made you question how you felt about the main character, much like in Catherine Kepnes's You.

The Silent Patient speaks a lot!

Storyline/Overview - Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist and he is interested in Alice’s story who has murdered her husband. He is determined to get to the details behind the crime. Even though the patient (Alice) is Silent throughout the narrative, the story progresses to spotlight her complex characteristics. “Unexpressed emotions never die. They are buried alive, and will come forth later, in uglier ways” BEST Psychological Thriller I have read in a long time! My opinion - Very well researched topic and the quotes at the start of every part of the book make sense at the end Every scenario described feels so realistic and I was amazed how much engrossed I was in this book Nice pace and a very easy to understand and read kind of language used The plot has a nice edginess and it wants you to keep turning pages to figure out what happens next! I was amazed at the flawless development of the characters, outstanding buildup and curiosity maintained and in fact increasing as pages turned! The final twist is the unique climax and no matter how much aware you are of the story, you’ll still not be able to predict it and I was mind blown by that sole fact The chapters are well divided and the engrossing fast-paced read makes it a page turner for sure! I enjoyed this wonderful psychological drama ride and cannot believe it is debut novel by Alex. Kudos!! Conclusion - It is definitely a clever and intriguing story with a mind-blowing twist to enjoy! The Silent Patient SPEAKS a lot 😉 It is for sure one of my favorite reads of 2019!
