Book Review: The Silent Patient
By Alexis Mercer
Perhaps if you’re reading this now, you clicked on the link because you’re wondering if this review explains how I have been living under a rock for years, just having come out and discovered this best-selling phenomenon.
Sorry to disappoint...it does not explain that. I have no excuse for why or how I haven’t managed to read this book prior to now. Except maybe that I don’t tend to jump on reading-list-talked-about-bandwagons very often. It took me a few years after publication of the first book before I opened a Harry Potter. Which turned out to my advantage because then I could read the first four of the series in a week and not have to wait for the releases.
The actual review of The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides is going to be short. Very short. I can’t tell you much at all about the book without ruining it.
What I can say: I had absolutely no idea until it happened.
Alicia Berenson is a famous painter who shoots her husband in the face repeatedly and then stops talking. Not a word to anyone. The quest to find the truth about what happened becomes one therapist’s obsession.
This book, advertised now as an instant #1 New York Times bestseller, lives up to its every acclaim.
Now I’ll find my way back under my rock until I get around to reading Where the Crawdad Sings.
