This book was creepy, chilling and I actually had goosebumps in the end!

In a series of online posts, Parker H., a young psychiatrist, records his time working at a dreary asylum in New England. Parker hopes to communicate with the world his effort to cure one bewildering patient.

This patient, Joe, who is now a forty year old, has been in the asylum since he was 6 years old. He has no known diagnosis and is determined to be incurable. Every person who has attempted to treat him has been driven to madness or suicide.

The plot was so unique and it was a quick read for me because I was so engrossed in it. But I kept thinking about it long after I finished reading, processing what I had just read.

I really wanted Parker to succeed and prove all the others wrong. I was curious to know about what actually was wrong with Joe and secretly hoped that he was alright and it was just a misdiagnosis.

The only disappointment for me was that after such an intriguing plot, I had hoped for a better ending.

That being said, I would definitely recommend this book to all thriller lovers!

Thank You to NetGalley and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for this ARC!! ( )

I had so much fun reading this book but I am, honestly, still trying to think about and process what happened and all the weird and creepy twists and turns that took place! This was a fantastic read!

This book is really interesting because of the way it’s written and told. It takes the form of blog posts or forum posts that the main character, Dr. Parker uses to recount an event or something that happened in the past, that had a pretty profound affect up on him, with a patient he was seeing years ago in a psychiatric hospital. This style reminds me of the way Dracula is written and works really very well to keep the reader interested and to keep the story flowing quickly.

This is a very quick read once you get into it; trust me, you won’t want to put it down! And it’s creepy and weird so it has all the strange vibes in it. If you like weird twist and turns, this is your book! ( )

This book has got to be one of the creepiest ones I have ever read. It is written in the form of online posts to a now no longer functioning psychiatric website/blog. The doctor writes about one of his uncurable patients, a forty year old who has been in the mental asylum since six years old. If you're looking for a supernatural yet horror filled story, this is definitely a book that should be on your to be read list. Jasper DeWitt's writing style is amazing, and it felt so real and scary that I actually had to stop reading for a couple days so I would not freak myself out even more than I already was. It is a short book, only about 200 pages, but that's only if you have the willpower for it (which I didn't). A good read! ( )

Super engrossing horror novel, and a quick read. It was the sort of story that sat in my head for a while after I finished it. I don't really get creeped out with media that's just writing. Like, the only time I can remember feeling some kind of genuine unease while reading something was with that well-known spelunking creepypasta......

"The Patient" wasn't as quite so effective as that, but it engrossed me to the point where I started to feel just a bit unsettled. A big part has to do with the format, I think. The forum posts did it for me. Even though it's obviously fiction, it presents itself as something that could have been real, and it's likely there's something like this book on the internet already, either as a ~creepypasta~ or as someone bullshitting on a forum.

Was satisfied with the ending, because it fit perfectly with the epistolary format.

I had expected this to be a psychological suspense novel but I was wrong in that it is more of a horror story. The suspenseful lead up was well done but I felt a bit left down by the end.

An almost arrogant and ambitious psychiatrist is employed at an asylum. He almost immediately becomes interested in a mysterious patient who has been deemed incurable and locked away from other patients and staff. He manages to convince his supervisors to let him try to help the patient and soon finds he is in over his head.

As I said, I did like the slow build of suspense that was brilliantly done by having the psychiatrist use social media to discuss his work with the patient but I did feel let down by the time the psychiatrist visited the mother's house. ( )
