The Silent Patient is one of those few books I am ambivalent about. Yes, it was a good mystery and I was drawn into the storyline. In fact, I read this book in one sitting (3 hours) because I couldn’t put it down. But at the same time, I didn’t find it very deep or absorbing; it was just a nice distraction from whatever I was supposed to be doing at the time. At the end, I thought “oh, that was an interesting twist” and moved on. The book didn’t stay with me, and honestly, I haven’t thought about it since. I know a lot of other people liked this book and I can see why, but it just didn’t have enough “meat” for me to give it more than an “eh, it was OK” rating.
Sorry for the short review. I just don’t have a lot of say about this book.
