Six years ago, Alicia shot her husband in the face five times. Since the night of her arrest, she has not spoken a word to anyone. Theo, a psychotherapist at the psychiatric hospital that Alicia is staying at, wants the opportunity to get her to talk again. He thinks he can help her, and he is willing to do whatever it takes to find out what happened that night she killed her husband. Alicia doesn't like to be pushed though, and this new challenge leads Theo down a path full of secrets.
This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite books of the year. I was hooked from the very first chapter, and the concept of an unreliable narrator always captivates me. I loved getting insight into Alicia's head through her diary entries, and the ending of this book quite honestly blew my mind. I finished The Silent Patient a while ago, but I still think about it frequently. If you love slow-burn thrillers with plot twists, I would highly recommend this book!
