The Maidens: A Novel | Alex Michaelides
post image
Mehso-so

Audiobook I‘ve settled on a solid “meh” for this one. The story was interesting but the characters weren‘t nearly as well rounded or engaging as The Silent Patient. It was hard to believe it would be so easy to insinuate oneself into a murder investigation the way Mariana did. Was planning to give this 3💀but the “reveal” caught me off guard and made for a good ending. So while not quite 4💀, I will give it 3 💀and a mandible.

AmyG I just read this too and gave it a 3. Much of it sounded “out there” but yet it kept my interest. 7mo

The Patient | Jasper DeWitt
post image
Pickpick

This is a quick & unsettling read that will send shivers up your spine. It‘s set as a blog written by a mental health professional named Parker H. He recounts his time working in a hospital where a patient called Joe has been confined since he was a child. Much mystery & death surrounds Joe. Joe is assigned to the care of Parker who begins to unravel Joe‘s past & his stay at the facility. This is a quick read that delivers a powerful punch.

A bit late on this one…

1. There was a locally owned used bookstore where I grew up that opened up when I was a child and remained open until well after my kids were born called The Book Rack. They had the sweetest shop dog named Dandy. Also Chamblin Bookmine in Jacksonville.
2. Don‘t really have a favorite library currently although my daughter‘s middle name is Alexandria for the greatest library. :)

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides was my audiobook for the work commute this week. And what a twisty turny ride it was!
This story hooked me from the start and didn‘t let go until the end. I even found myself sitting in the driveway for a bit to finish a chapter more than once. The voice actors, including Louise Brealey (Molly of BBC‘s Sherlock) do an amazing job bringing the characters and this story to life. 4.5💀

Set on a small private island, this story takes place over a 48 hour period. Old friends and family come together to celebrate the wedding of Jules and Will. But everyone has a secret. Excellent suspense building that kept me on the edge of my seat. The voice actors for this audiobook were wonderful.

Had heard nothing but good things about this one and was super excited to read it. Sadly, this best thing I can say is that it was a quick read. I really wanted to like it, but just couldn‘t. I felt it came across more as a script for a B horror movie rather than a book. Everything seemed to be presented as descriptions of movie scenes instead of a smooth, cohesive story. 😕
