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 spotlight of the tabloids 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 search for the truth leads him down a terrifying path and threatens to consume him.… (més)

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Alicia is a famous painter, her Husband Gabriel is a photographer, they lead a normal life. One day, to the shock of the community she kills her Husband. Alicia now resides at Grove, a psychiatric forensic unit. Theo is a criminal psychotherapist new to her case, determine to find the truth.

Theo jumps head first into her case with a passion, one could say obsession. Alicia hasn't spoke since the murder, Theo feels he is the one to get her to open up. As each day passes with his obsession growing, her silence deafening, things are about to break in a shocking unimaginable way.

A fast paced original story that had me on the edge of my seat. The characters are complex and well developed. Plenty of twists, turns, and secrets revealed had me engrossed from the first page until the end. I highly recommend The Silent Patient to those who love a great psychological thriller. ( )

I thriller psicologici sono i miei preferiti, quelli dove l'azione è assente e la tensione tutta mentale: questo romanzo ne è un esempio perfetto.
La storia entra subito nel vivo e non ci sono mai cali di ritmo, in un modo o nell'altro saremo sempre spinti a girare pagina per scoprire un tassello in più. La trama è il vero (e unico) focus della vicenda, ma devo dire che è costruita in modo magistrale, specialmente il finale che rimette tutto in gioco e ribalta il punto di vista, trasformando quello che sembrava un difetto di scrittura nel fulcro dell'opera. [SPOILER]-L'etica discutibile di Theo ed il suo egocentrismo smisurato lo rendono un personaggio sempre più sgradevole man mano che si va avanti, per non parlare dell'insofferenza che si prova nel vedere interminabili capitoli dedicati alla moglie infedele: tutto trova un senso quando si comprende che non stiamo leggendo la relazione di uno psicologo ma la confessione di un assassino.-[FINE SPOILER]. Non me lo aspettavo e devo dire che lo trovo un espediente se non originale (la Christie lo ha fatto già negli anni '30), sicuramente di grande effetto.
E' ovvio che parliamo pur sempre di un romanzo di intrattenimento, quindi non dovremo aspettarci sottigliezze interpretative o stilistiche: i personaggi sono al servizio della storia e la scrittura semplicemente il mezzo con cui si è scelto di comunicarla.
Eppure nonostante i limiti evidenti è un libro che convince e dove tutto funziona perfettamente, un must per gli appassionati. ( )

This book floated to the top of my ARCs-to-read pile earlier this afternoon. I rarely seek out thrillers but am not opposed to reading them, and this one was a quick and easy read.

I did like the play on the title of the novel -- while Alicia is the obvious silent patient, Theo is also being intentionally silent about things right up to the end. ( )

Meet the hottest-tipped debut novelists of 2019

The Silent Patient is narrated by Theo Faber, a psychotherapist determined to discover why Alicia Berenson, a famous artist accused of murdering her husband, has refused to speak since her husband’s death. The therapeutic setting was inspired by Michaelides’s own experience. “Therapy is very important to me and has been a major part of my life,” he says.

Running through the novel is the Greek myth of Alcestis, and Euripides’s play of the same name. The Alcestis theme is perhaps one of the reasons that The Silent Patient is finding such traction both among early readers and the tranche of movie executives who fought to option it. With its story of female sacrifice and the silencing of a woman post-trauma, it feels highly relevant in a post #MeToo world. “It’s about silence as a weapon,” Michaelides says. “And it was very clear in my head when I was writing the book that Alicia was surrounded by these men who were imprisoning her. Like Alcestis, Alicia is trapped and she’s denied a voice. It’s a lifetime of being made to think that she wasn’t worthy, she wasn’t good enough, and maybe that’s something that a lot of women [readers] have been responding to.”

The novel has already been optioned by Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B, with Michaelides due to write the screenplay, a fitting circularity for a novelist who has spent the past 15 years working as a screenwriter.

It's odd how quickly one adapts to the strange new world of a psychiatric unit. You become increasingly comfortable with madness—and not just the madness of others, but your own. We're all crazy, I believe, just in different ways.
"Choosing a lover is a lot like choosing a therapist. We need to ask ourselves, is this someone who will be honest with me, listen to criticism, admit making mistakes, and not promise the impossible?"
