This book is a page turner! Theo’s voice ensnares the reader from the very first page. Alicia’s story captivated me from the start but that plot twist just really made the book worth the read. Beware of spoilers because I believe your enjoyment of this book will be entirely dependent on a complete lack of knowledge regarding the answer to the mystery of the silent patient.

I am in awe that this is Michaelides’ debut novel because his writing is so keen and well developed. He expertly spun this mesmerizing tale in a convincing but unpredictable manner. I grew very apprehensive toward the middle because I just didn’t know how everything was going to end, I didn’t want to be let down. BUT THAT ENDING was incredible and nothing close to my wildest predictions.
