This book was good, but not great. I am surprised it was a finalist for #BOTM Book of the Year. I believe it was the weakest of the bunch. It was a quick read. I was able to figure out the twist, and I am usually not good at that. The ending felt pretty rushed to me, and I felt like there were a couple of threads that never got wrapped up.

Hooked_on_books I was also surprised this was a finalist. I thought it was ok but then hated the end, so it really didn‘t work for me. 1w
Annl I agree, it was ok, not great! Rushes at the end, and I did figure out what was happening which in good mysteries I am not able to do! 1w
Melwilk @Hooked_on_books @Annl I‘m glad I wasn‘t the only one who was disappointed in the ending. 1w

I read this book yesterday. Yes, the whole thing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Partial blurb from Indigo:

The Silent Patient is a shocking psychological thriller of a woman's act of violence against her husband-and of the therapist obsessed with uncovering her motive.

TheLudicReader I love how books impact readers differently. While I certainly turned the pages, I thought it was a lot of fuss for not much pay off. 😀I was definitely in the minority, though. 4w
KarenJMcLean We are usually in sync, but occasionally we differ. I guess that just proves that readers really do bring the other half of the story. 🙂 4w

3.5 ⭐

This is difficult for me to review. I smashed through it in 36 hours, and can definitely see why it won Goodreads awards and was a #newyearwhodis recommendation. But I don't think I liked it. I was entranced by Alicia and her story, but couldn't stand Theo. I wanted to roll my eyes at everything he said. He was so self absorbed and misogynistic.

Sorry @TheLibrarian but this one didn't do it for me.

@monalyisha

What should I do?!?!

I own three of the #boty finalists and I‘m not feeling the other two. But I can get a free one.
A) do I choose one that I don‘t own and hope I‘ll read it?
B) do I choose one I don‘t own and put it in my LFL?
C) do I choose one I own and that I think more people would like and put it in my LFL
D) do I pick one and give it to someone as a gift?
I own the three that are marked.

Reviewsbylola Buy Recursion!!! Put it in your LFL or maybe even give it a shot and read it. 😁 2mo
marleed I‘m not a sci fi reader typically but gave Recursion 5*. Then I read Dark Matter and liked it just as much. Also I think DJATS is a great gift for anyone who loves 70s music. 2mo

Help! Do i get This Tender Land as my free #botm or the silent patient?? I've already read the other 3 options.

Butterflyamore Oh, that is an impossible choice, as I thought they were both so good! I‘d say go by your mood: If you want something twisty and fast-paced, pick The Silent Patient. If you want a slower but deeply meaningful book that will touch your heart, pick This Tender Land. 2mo

Raining days : I said I was going to read Flowers For Algernon.. but I am trying out Auditable for the first time. Does anyone else use it ? How do you like it ? I kinda feel lazy just because I don‘t work and actually reading a book keeps me busy like I‘m doing something. Not talking bad on anyone who uses this but I do also like it reminds me of my childhood when my mom mom use to read me bed time.

IamIamIam Audiobooks are not cheating! Lol, I listen with Libby & take audiobooks out of the library. Quiet time sitting is reserved for print or digital books for me. Audio is more for busy days when I'm running errands, cleaning, or doing laundry. 👍 Hope you continue listening!! 1mo

Not necessarily a thriller (a slow burn psychological character study) but still intriguing none the less. You keep reading because you want to know if the wife did murder her husband and, if so, why she remaining silent.

A liked this thriller.Maybe the end was a clitché which I cannot mention without spoil the story. But it was a surprised for me at some point. I think what I liked more was the psychological dynamics between the characters, how some psychological terms were well managed like the concept of contratransference and the therapy sessions. I could imagine some of the art works described here I wish they would be real4⭐️debut novel?

This might be an #unpopularopinion, but I thought this book was garbage! You can tell it was written for the main purpose of adapting it into a movie. Despite what he says in the acknowledgments, the author clearly has zero real knowledge of therapy.

My book club has been picking some real crap lately. 😡 But at least the book was over quickly.

Rachel.Rencher I thought the same thing about the movie adaptation grab! 3mo

I thought this book was interesting, and definitely a quick read. The twist was satisfying. But it was also pretty simple and mostly predictable. Packed with in-your-face allusion and chapter-ending lines that are short and dramatic but don't really need to be. I don't regret reading it but would consider this a classic Mom book.

And.. the end. I was into it- but felt a little “meh” with it at the end. I think it was overhyped. And/or I read too many books in this genre. How did the side story of his wife resolve- I missed that and just don‘t feel like flipping around on a kindle to see if I missed something.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #BOTM picks are on point. While Theo, our psychotherapist, comes off as slightly pathetic, and Alicia, our patient, is primarily silent, the need to know why she shot her husband kept me turning the pages. Each character we meet that came in contact with Alicia is shrouded in suspicion, none are likable. It‘s a quick read with a major twist!
