Alicia Berenson's life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London's most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word. Alicia's refusal to talk or give any kind of explanation turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the spotlight of the tabloids at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London. Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His search for the truth leads him down a terrifying path and threatens to consume him.… (mais)

So good! Never saw that twist coming! ( )
  Completely_Melanie | Sep 10, 2021 |
Great characterization, interesting premise, and intriguing mystery - they're all done expertly by Michaelides. However, I have one gripe with the story - and it's a bit of a spoiler so beware - why oh why do you have to trick me like this? See, red herrings are good, but when you intentionally mess with the reader's view of the 'timeline' (so to speak), it leaves me with a sour taste.

Putting that aside, it was a great story. It has the potential to be a strong mini-series, and I believe Michaelides, considering his background, is probably going to shop it around. The story is written in a very visual way with a strong focus on dialog and images. I liked the use of Alcestis, a Greek tragedy, which is rare to see in modern works considering how obscure it is.

Overall, I really liked it and can't wait to see it on the screen, whenever that is. ( )

Twists, turns, suspects that are suggested but turn out to be false leads and a surprise ending that is hard to see coming! All in all an entertaining read, well written and complex enough to hold your attention throughout the journey. ( )

#TheSilentPatient Review:
[NO SPOILERS]
’A Perfect Thriller’
That's what said A.J Finn, about this globally admired piece of suspense by Alex Michaelides, on its cover. A.J Finn was the first in 12 years to hit Times bestseller with a debut novel, 'The Woman in the Window' and believe me, The Silent Patient is precisely nothing but a pure thriller and that's why it won Goodreads Choice Award for Best Mystery Thriller in 2019. Its lasting suspense can be understood from the fact that when I finished its last page, I kept turning pages but the story was ended giving me as many new questions as many of its climax had answered.
This a story of a happily married woman named Alicia, who one night shoots her husband in cold blood. Strangely, after being caught, she went to eternal silence, not even a single word in her defense. Alicia's silence turns a homicide into a Public mystery that seizes the attention of the whole Town as well of a young psychotherapist. After being sent to a Psychiatric Center, that Criminal Psychotherapist named Theo Faber makes his mind that he can and has to help Alicia in her troubling times and waits for a long time to get a job at the same center and successfully grabs the permission to treat Alicia. Although he fails terribly to turn Alicia talking immediately he keeps trying, and soon everything starts becoming clear, slowly and with more suspense than before and that's where I will leave you to your imagination.
It's that kind of a story you would love to finish in a single sitting because although the story moves a little slowly, it doesn't make you feel dull and boring at any single moment. It's the only novel I've read so far with that capacity. You will anticipate the massive twist in the second half if you've been into mystery thriller books and movies but even then, It won't feel any different. Another thing I loved about this book is that author has brilliantly portrayed the characters' mental journey and I do not doubt that most of you will relate to them in one way or another. It tells us to cope with our traumas and not bury them, coz they will resurface one way or another and by that time, you would've been eaten away from the inside already. I really wanted to write more in its praise but that won't be without some spoilers and this book has all its charm in its suspense. Sorry If gave away any plot info unintentionally!
“We often mistake love for fireworks—for drama and dysfunction. But real love is very quiet, very still. It’s boring if seen from the perspective of high drama. Love is deep and calm—and constant.”
Alex Michaelides, The Silent Patient

As the official review states, this book tells the story of a therapist who is trying to treat a woman who murdered her husband... but who won’t speak. It’s equal parts thriller and drama that keeps things moving well. There is, as you expect, a twist at the end. Careful readers might be able to pick up on some of the clues, and the payoff is worth it. My only critiques pertain to the negative way it portrays therapists and their work. But overall, this was a good read. ( )

Meet the hottest-tipped debut novelists of 2019

The Silent Patient is narrated by Theo Faber, a psychotherapist determined to discover why Alicia Berenson, a famous artist accused of murdering her husband, has refused to speak since her husband’s death. The therapeutic setting was inspired by Michaelides’s own experience. “Therapy is very important to me and has been a major part of my life,” he says.

Running through the novel is the Greek myth of Alcestis, and Euripides’s play of the same name. The Alcestis theme is perhaps one of the reasons that The Silent Patient is finding such traction both among early readers and the tranche of movie executives who fought to option it. With its story of female sacrifice and the silencing of a woman post-trauma, it feels highly relevant in a post #MeToo world. “It’s about silence as a weapon,” Michaelides says. “And it was very clear in my head when I was writing the book that Alicia was surrounded by these men who were imprisoning her. Like Alcestis, Alicia is trapped and she’s denied a voice. It’s a lifetime of being made to think that she wasn’t worthy, she wasn’t good enough, and maybe that’s something that a lot of women [readers] have been responding to.”

The novel has already been optioned by Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B, with Michaelides due to write the screenplay, a fitting circularity for a novelist who has spent the past 15 years working as a screenwriter.

It's odd how quickly one adapts to the strange new world of a psychiatric unit. You become increasingly comfortable with madness—and not just the madness of others, but your own. We're all crazy, I believe, just in different ways.
"Choosing a lover is a lot like choosing a therapist. We need to ask ourselves, is this someone who will be honest with me, listen to criticism, admit making mistakes, and not promise the impossible?"
