This is a perfect example of a book that hits all the right subtle notes and then suddenly throws you into a locked room full of crashing cymbals. And you never want to leave. When you pick up a thriller you want just that — to be thrilled. You want some basic ingredients: Suspense, mystery, and an un-guessable ending. The Silent Patient delivers all that.
The scene is set at a mental institution, which only adds to the unstable nature of all the other action. Until, late one evening, Alicia shoots Gabriel five times and then never speaks another word. Forensic psychotherapist Theo Faber is convinced he can successfully treat Alicia, where all others have failed.
And if she speaks, would he want to hear the truth? What, exactly, is that animalistic draw toward stories involving psychosis and mental institutions? Whatever it is, these stories pull me in and this one was no exception. I read this book in one day. I am not a fast reader, and I usually have multiple things that pull me away from reading at any given time.
But on the day that I read this, I was uninterrupted. Maybe the book gods granted me that time because they knew exactly how this book needed to be digested — in one big gulp. It truly is a page-turner with palpable suspense that grows with each new character introduced, each new bit of the mystery revealed, and each new piece of the puzzle revealed. Her silence was like a mirror — reflecting yourself back at you. And it was often an ugly sight. Tbh, writing this review is difficult for me. So I am keeping it very basic by saying that if you like twisty suspense novels, read The Silent Patient.
Read it for the masterful story construction, for the depth of deception, and for the silent accusation on the part of more than just the character of Alicia. Everyone should have one of those series on their reading lists. You know the ones, light-hearted, funny, crazy unbelievable antics, with a kooky cast of characters that immediately separate you from the real world.
I never take those books for granted because, after all, that is why I read books in the first place. The series is funny, smart, sexy, and a great way to spend a few hours away from the reality of adulting. From Goodreads: A stoner, an Instagram model, a Czech oligarch, and a missing unicorn.

Publish Date: May 21, by St. Many thanks to the author and St. I received no monetary compensation and my thoughts are my own. When I was a little girl I lived in the mountains of North Carolina for a time. I thought the world was magical back then.
I believed in fairies and mermaids and all types of supernatural things. It must have been that mountain air! I remember things just smelling differently up there. The soil was blacker in the mountains than it is here in Georgia, and it had a tart, metallic smell to it; like iron. The air was less heavy, and the grass — whether cut or long — smelled tangy and sweet. I still remember all those smells so vividly in my memory. Certain smells trigger specific memories of places or events from our past.
Smells are powerful that way, and The Scent Keeper is a story all about that very specific power. Emmeline lives an enchanted childhood on a remote island with her father, who teaches her about the natural world through her senses. As Emmeline grows, however, so too does her curiosity, until one day the unforeseen happens, and Emmeline is vaulted out into the real world—a place of love, betrayal, ambition, and revenge. To understand her past, Emmeline must unlock the clues to her identity, a quest that challenges the limits of her heart and imagination.
I inhaled again, slow and deep, and felt the smells flood my head, so full and three-dimensional I could almost wander among them. I will summarize this book first by saying that books like The Scent Keeper are why I read. I experience my own world irl and then I can escape into any one of theirs at any given time.

The fragrances of the scent-papers became my lungs, the blood in my veins. I found it easier and easier to lose myself in them. If you are a fan of lyrical writing and story lines that drag you deep into other worlds, then this book will not disappoint.
This is a fairy tale told for a modern age — complete with Google searches and skyscrapers. I went from not knowing what to expect in the first few chapters to expecting everything under the sun in the final ones. It is a tale of adventure, a family drama, and a love story all wrapped into one.
There is mystery and suspense, danger and violence, victory and celebration, but there is also tragedy and loss.
