The Silent Patient

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides was another decent thriller, thought not as good as some. The story is about Alicia, a famous painter married to a photographer, Gabriel. One evening, Gabriel arrives home late and Alicia shoots him and then goes mute. Her therapist, Theo, attempts to get to the bottom of her story and subsequently to get her to speak again. It’s an interesting story and one that drives you to the surprise ending, but I had inklings along the way of how things were going to turn out, so it was not as suspenseful as it could have been. Overall, though, it was a good and creative story.
