We have amassed several reviews from different sources like Amazon, GoodReads, and the other book clubs. Read what others are saying on The Silent Patient and decide for yourself if you want to satisfy your thirst of curiosity and reading by buying the book.

First, a lot are saying the this Alex Michaelides book is just overly hyped. I don’t want to agree on this just read on what most are saying. Many loves how The Silent Patient’s narratives are made. It is clever, a real page turner, and intensely gripping. The narrative is told by Theo himself and the readers have a full glimpse of the life of the Criminal Psychotherapist.

Theo wanted to learn more about the motives and the reasons why Alicia killed her husband who kept silent for over six years. Instead of Theo wanting to draw Alicia to open up and talk, things went the other way around. Obsession is boiling and things are beginning to unfold. The mystery and heart thumping suspense is beautifully laid out and reader will keep things guessing.

Well that’s what most of the readers are saying about The Silent Patient book. Many are loving it but there are also who aren’t into the bandwagon. They are saying that Theo is literally funny being an investigator and a psychotherapist. He lacks the skills and the intelligence to qualify as a good investigator. The development of Theo’s character is noted be poorly executed and if it were better made – he could have a stronger presence in the overall plot.

Many also pointed out that the “unfolding” and “twists” can be spotted by a mile. A trained psychological thriller reader can easily “see” what is coming. But that should not stop you from choosing The Silent Patient as one of your 2019 Must-reads. Well, everybody has valid opinions about the book. Not only that, one even ranted and said that the overall plot is just too immature and obviously lacks finesse.
