The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides Book Summary


"An unforgettable—and Hollywood-bound—new thriller... A mix of Hitchcockian suspense, Agatha Christie plotting, and Greek tragedy."
—Entertainment Weekly

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.

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 tabloids and spotlight 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 determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him....

Gripping of the sheets!. Recommended by friends. I couldn’t put it down. Lost sleep over it. Would definitely read again.

Yes!!!. Page Turner loved it!!

4 starts only for the ending. slow read. interesting, but a little boring. the ending was great though!

The plot twists; wow!!. Fantastic read! I got hooked right off the bat. Never dull moment, always keeping you interested and wanting to read more. Just when you think you’ve got it figured out, it hits you! My jaw dropped! Excellent book! I would highly recommend!!

Pretty Forgettable. I felt like the premise was a bit difficult to accept. After looking past some of those inadequacies, there wasn’t much else in the story to grab onto. Wouldn’t read again or recommend.

Crazy good. I haven’t read a book all the way through in almost 2 years I have 2 small babies but i read this one and it’s crazy and has a wild twist it’s very good

A good one!. Lives up to the hype!

The silent patient. Absolutely chilling! This book kept me on my toes like no other book I’ve ever read, the attention to detail is fantastic.

Amazing. Unreal plot twist you’ll never see coming.

Wonderful debut novel. I enjoyed the way this book was written. I finished it in 3 days. I did not pickup on the plot twist until I was smack dab in the middle of it and the realization came like a tidal wave. Good, easy & engaging read.

Chilling, exciting page turner. What. An amazing. Read. Really keeps you hooked for every part; definitely a quicker read, but it is filled to the brim with excitement and plot twists. Really makes you think about the trustworthiness of those around you and even makes you question who you are…such an awesome book.

Hard book to put down.. Had me captive the entire way through!

Shocking ending!. I just finished The Silent Patient and, as the quote says, it really is the perfect thriller. I was hooked the entire novel. However, the ending upset me simply because I didn’t want it to be true😂 great book and worth the read!

Amazing!. Amazing writing. Drags you in, just to throw you through a loop hole you might not even suspect. Incredibly intriguing and I couldn’t put it down

Binged. Intriguing from the start, I read it in 3 days! Such a good book!

Easy, addicting read with a twist!. I was not expecting the twist, at all, and the author kept me wanting more. Definitely would recommend!

Garbage. Really unsatisfying ending. Cheap and gimmicky and extremely overrated.

Must read for thriller lovers. i have to say that, after finishing the book, it became one of my favorites EVER! If you love thrillers, suspenseful books… this is a must read for you. The plot twist really blew my mind, I did not expect it.

Thriller/Mystery with a Plot Twist!. Page-turner, vivid settings and characters, with engulfing dialogue that left me hungry to stay up late reading long after bed time.

AMAZING. I absolutely loved this book. I would never have expected the ending. So so so good. Best twist ever

5/5. I couldn’t put this book down, it was recommended by friends. The ending was very surprising but amazing I would 10/10 recommend this book to anyone who loves to read as much as I do!

Loved the twist. I read this based on a recommendation I received. I thought it was well written, but at times I found myself losing interest. The twist at the end was great.

Speechless. This is the first book I’ve read in awhile and I was so drawn to it. I could barely put it down and when I did I was in a constant state of wondering when the next time I’d be able to read would be.

Slow-burn for a few pages of plot twist. I expected more from this book because everyone raves about it. The beginning had a slow burn, some parts made you want to keep reading but others felt pointless when all said and done. I think there were many brilliant additions but overall unnecessary. However, the plot twist got me and was shocking to say the least.

Stupid. Doesn’t even deserve a one star rating!

Read this now !!. I never put this book down it was sooooo good !!! It is a must read!

Not as good as reviews suggested. It was fine but I was under impressed throughout. The ‘big twist’ at the end that other reviewers mentioned was in fact a smaller predictable turn. I wouldn’t recommend it to a friend.

Incredible. I read this book in the span of four hours while I was home alone… then, I proceeded to read the entire thing AGAIN, but this time out loud to my husband while we were ice fishing . We both agreed, it is an incredible story

not the full book. it is only 22 pages of the book. dont waste your money

Couldn’t put down!. I started this book at noon… it is currently 2:43 am and I just finished it. Absolutely locks you in until the very last word. Highly recommend!!!

Mesmerizing. I could not put this book down

Silence!. First Read In A LONG TIME. Have To Say It Got Me Back Wanting To Read Like When I Was A Kid. Ended Up Hooked And Visualizing The Story As I Read! Great Book.

Perfect read. Perfect read. Well written and full of shock

“Candy” meets “shutter island”?. Loved this book

AMAZING BOOK. This is AMAZING it has a giant plot twist at the end it is definitely worth the wait 5/5 would kill to read this for the first time

I LOVEEED IT. Best book ever! I really was not expecting that ending, and the way the author writes feels so real

Couldn’t put it down!. Since I’ve been trying to get back into reading, this is the first book I couldn’t put down and the fastest I’ve finished a book in a long time. The plot twist has me wanting to reread the whole book again. Have a free weekend? PICK UP THIS BOOK!!!

Well written. It was somewhat slow in the beginning, but it is entertaining and intriguing enough to get you to where it starts to pick up

Great Read!. Couldn’t put this book down. Great twist t the end. Highly recommend.

The Silent Patient. Boring book. Did not enjoy it at all.J.Buckles

An interesting read! ⭐️. I would recommend this book even though the twist was a little cliche in a way! I still couldn’t put it down (:


Great book.. ending could have been better. I loved this book but the ending could have been better written.. I feel like. It ends abruptly.. or maybe I wanted the story to continue because it was so good. I’m not sure

Wow. Wow. This is probably the best book I’ve read. Typically I can guess the ending of thrillers but this one kept me on my toes the entire time.

Amazing!. I don’t usually ready books but this one right hereee? 10/10 recommend! It had me shocked and at the edge of my seat 🤌🏼🤌🏼🤌🏼

Deep…ish. Pretty wordy

That Double Plot Twist. Wow. So many details and changing times/scenes I wasn’t really bored per se but he keeps you distracted throughout so when he drops the bomb, it makes you audibly gasp. I didn’t see it coming. Makes up for the slow build.

Best book!. Once I opened it, it had to be finished in one sitting. Read it in a few hrs! Not sure another book has captured my attention quite like this.

amazinggg. the twist just had me aweeeee… love love love

Amazing!. Such an incredible read. I finished it in less than 24 hours and that never happens!!

really didn’t see the end coming!. was truly surprised at the end, good quick read

The silent patient. Excellent!!!!! Finished book 3 days ago and I’m still pondering the outcome, never see it coming

Masterpiece. I didn’t see this coming. I truly enjoyed this book and couldn’t put it down. What a twist the end was!

GirlinthecityTO. Really enjoyed this book - fast paced, a quick read.

Really good. I thought this was great! It was suspenseful and moved along at a good pace. I didn’t think it was predictable at all and I read a lot of books in this genre. Well done!

Not bad!. It was an okay book. I actually found it rather predictable and familiar. Not the shocking ending that everyone said it was. Good though, over all.

amazing!!. i only read a sample of the book so i could make sure it was worth the money before buying it. i saw a book review on it on youtube and i listened to it and just fell in love with the tone she said the book set. so i went on here and read it. it’s an amazing book! 5/5 stars!! definitely worth the money if you are into thrillers and mystery. it’s extremely detailed snd i couldn’t put what i read of it down.

Best plot I ever read!. This is such a good book, I literally could not put it down. Can’t wait to read his next book!

Good read. Loved the twist, easy to read but a bit of a slow start. I’d recommend it.

The Silent Patient. What a page turner and such a great twist !

Twist ending. Amazing book from start to finish. I really did not see the ending coming.

The silent patient. Brilliant!!

Interesting for a first novel. I enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting. The twist was unexpected in the extreme and made it all the more interesting. I look forward to more from this author.

The Silent Patient. Fast paced read

Wow. What a novel. Tight writing. Not a word wasted. Great story that carries you along a roller coaster to the final paragraph. Highly recommended.

The silent patient. I couldn’t stop reading this book. A real nail bitter.

Wow. I couldn’t tell how it was going to end, nor could I predict who was more on the edge of madness. This book was hard to put down and I really enjoyed it.

Amazing!. Wonderfully written, captivating and a binge worthy book! The silent patient has you guessing and thinking until the very end! A must read!

Amazing. Such a good book. Psychological thrillers are my favourite and this one did not let me done. My eyes were glued to the pages, always eager to find out what happens next. One of my favourites!

Dumb. I read this and hid by accident

The silent patient. Interesting read, predictable ending.

Fantastic book with an unexpected twist!. I absolutely LOVED this book! I was hooked from the first much so that I read it in one day! If you like psychological thrillers (or just a good mystery and/or thriller) I highly highly recommend this book!!

Worth it. The ending though! Try it and see for yourself but it’s definitely worth the time💙

READ THIS BOOK!!. By far one of the best books I have ever read. If you know what is good for you, you’ll read this book. It is almost addicting being so entangled in a book but I just couldn’t stop reading.

Predictable and poorly written. A quick read, with a predictable ending.

The silent patient. Ludicrous plot, tedious and pretentious

Why did I only get 35 pages. Where’s the whole book 🫥

Wow. Wow

Lives up to the hype. This was definitely a page turner! Loved every second of reading this book!
