The Silent Patient
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides is a thriller about marriage and obsession that stuck with readers. Fascinating premise, terrific pacing, an unreliable narrator -- and a twist at the end that’s too good to spoil.
"There are three rules for reading The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides: 1) Don’t read it after dark 2) Remember, it’s just a book 3) Seriously, you’re going to want a nightlight. The Silent Patient is a novel that is all-consuming. It's fast-paced, with twists that you will never see coming. Interspersed with poignant epigraphs, this psychological thriller is for fans of Shutter Island, The Haunting of Hill House, and In a Dark, Dark Wood. Michaelides’s writing will keep you trapped in this book until the very end." -- Laurel Faye, Bookseller, Newnan, GA
