An average read! Can't see what a hype was all about.

This is a true psychological thriller. As Theo's investigation into the mind of a silent, but tormented young woman progresses, we see different sides to the central event, culminating in what is truly a masterful and well-crafted plot twist. You won't be disappointed!

As saturated as the "psychological thriller" sub-genre is now, this particular book I thought was a standout. This might be the only book where I literally said out loud "a-ha!" when I realized what the twist in the story was. Recommend!

What a roller-coaster of a ride! Psychological thriller par excellence. Really looking forward to reading what Alex Michaelides writes next

Lots of interesting comments about this book - from waste of time to just great. Found it easy to read and intriguing - really do not see how some of these people saw this ending coming. Guess you will have to read and come to your own conclusion.

I found this to be a page turner filled with suspense and elements of a psychological thriller.

This book is actually quite charming - the development of the characters is pretty amazing, as well. And the ending? I never saw it coming!

Kind of dark about a psychiatrist and a patient- a surprise ending. Recommend for book club, a real page turner.
