A review by satch
The Silent Patient, by Alex Michaelides


I read a large part of this book thinking it was just a nice, light, enjoyable read, perfect for a lazy day. A predictable cast of characters, average writing, and an okay story. But then: tada, the twist, and I now understand why it has been so praised. This is 3 1/2 stars for me, but I've rounded up rather than down because it did what it set out to do well.
