The book had me hooked. Short chapters, at each end a cliffhanger that practically forced you to read on. The end was interesting. I read a bunch of reviews on Amazon about what other people thought about the end, some loved it, some hated it. I cant decide. Brilliant and ingenious or more of a huge let down. In any case, most entertaining, I recommend it.

Não foi uma leitura pacifica. Achei o livro confuso desde o inicio e os diálogos também não ajudavam. Eram fraquinhos, levantavam questões que ficavam sem resposta e não revelavam nada de significativo. Quanto mais avançava no enredo mais duvidas tinha sobre quem eram os loucos ou os sãos, quem dizia a verdade ou quem alucinava.
A mais valia desta história foi o autor conseguir manter a fasquia do suspense elevada do principio ao fim , deixando sempre uma ponta solta, uma duvida ou promessa de r...more

I had read this book over a period of two days, one of which I was forced to leave the house and yet I refused to put the book down, I had crossed the streets numerous times with book in hand and my very attention on it. "Therapy" brimmed with both emotion and intellect, intuition and paranoia; it extended more than what is commonly anticipated by readers. I had always perceived the more aberrant books to be the most intriguing.

By saying this I am certain that I am speaking for all readers of th...more

Das schlimme an Krimis ist, dass sie am Ende dann am meisten enttäuschen können, wenn der Anfang besonders gut gelungen ist. Allerdings hängt das eine meist unmittelbar mit dem anderen zusammen. Ein Krimi hat einen guten Anfang, wenn Überraschendes passiert, was nicht zusammen passt, wenn sich dem Leser Fragen stellen, auf die es keine vernünftige Antwort zu geben scheint, und wenn die Aufklärung des Falles anschenend unmöglich ist. Ist auf diese Weise Neugierde und Interesse geweckt, kann man n...more

"La Terapia" è il romanzo d'esordio dello scrittore tedesco Sebastian Fitzek che si è conteso il primo posto della classifica letteraria con il noto romanzo "Il Codice da Vinci" di Dan Brown. In Germania ha avuto un successo strabiliante ed è diventato in breve tempo un bestseller. In Italia non sono molti i romanzi nordici che vengono tradotti e che, soprattutto, riscuotono un discreto successo e, infatti, con la prima pubblicazione con Rizzoli nel 2007 questo bellissimo romanzo di Fitzek è pas...more

La verità è un puzzle con un numero di pezzi sconosciuto. Si scopre solo quando l’intero mosaico è stato composto.

Questa mattina, nonostante sia un giorno di festa, mi sono svegliata prestissimo. Guardando fuori dalla finestra, attraverso il buio si intravedeva la pioggia battente nel riflesso di luce del lampione in giardino. Allora, mi sono chiesta come occupare in modo piacevole questa giornata che ancora prima dell’alba si presentava grigia, piovosa e fredda. Non avevo voglia di “correre con...more

Hin und wieder lass ich mich von dem Hype, der um ein Buch entsteht, anstecken und muss es dann auch unbedingt lesen, so auch "Die Therapie".

Psychiater Larenz zieht sich nach dem mysteriösen Verschwinden seiner Tochter auf die Insel Parkum zurück und beginnt mit einer geheimnisvollen Frau, die anscheinend Kenntnisse über den Verbleib seiner Tochter hat, eine Therapie.

Das Positive zuerst, das Buch lässt sich leicht und zügig lesen und ist durchaus kurzweilig.
Aber überraschend? Verblüfft hat mich...more

GOOD GRACE, this book was so exciting! It felt like that I was just as crazy as Viktor. It was the movie Shutter Island all over again. Isabell is clearly a fcking bitch. I don't even understand how you could do something like that to your husband. But okay.. I couldn't stop reading and that's what I loved about it and that's reallyyyyy what reading is all about.

I really don't understand why people would give this book two or three stars. Dude??!! Where were you while reading this book???

Dios!! Este libro es impresionante nos relata de maneras espectaculares la capacidad de la mente humana en todos los aspectos desde la imaginación hasta la locura del hombre. Creo que la capacidad de Sebastian Fitzekpara describirnos estas cosas es bastante impresionante.

Cette histoire a de quoi vous faire dresser les cheveux sur la tête ! L'auteur a mis en scène une machination implacable, sous forme de huis-clos, entre un psychiatre et une jeune femme écrivain, qui se dit schizophrène. Cela se passe sur une île, battue par les vents et la tempête, impeccable pour se sentir pris au piège, avec la sensation d'une angoisse rampante et étouffante. C'est franchement bien fichu, ça se lit aussi très vite, de façon mécanique, avec des chapitres courts, qui multiplien...more

Wow, this mind-tricking story is spectacular!!!

Poznati psihijatar Viktor Larenz nađe se u središtu pozornosti kada mu doslovce pred očima kći nestane bez traga. Čekavši ju pred vratima jednog od mnogobrojnih doktora koje je posjećivala pošto je zadnjih mjeseci bolovala od raznih bolesti kojima je bilo nemoguće utvrditi uzrok, shvaća da Josy nije u ordinaciji a njezin nestanak obavijen je velom misterije. Tog momenta život mu se mijenja zauvijek..

Četiri godine kasnije Viktor se udaljio od žene i...more

Ich spare es mir, auf den Inhalt einzugehen, denn das Buch ist nicht neu und Inhaltsangaben gibt es hier und an anderer Stelle im Netz genug.

Hier meine zwei Cents zur Lektüre von "Die Therapie": Wirklich spannend. Das ist wohl das Wichtigste und beste, das man von dem Roman sagen kann. Wer kurzweilige Lektüre für den Urlaub sucht, macht mit "Die Therapie" nichts falsch.

Mit hat besonders gut die Atmosphäre der kleinen, abgelegenen und von der Außenwelt abgeschnittenen Nordseeinsel gefallen, auf d...more

¿Podría existir un libro con mas suspenso y acertijos?

Mi meta es ser psicóloga, y ser una profesional en ello, mi familia y amigos constantemente me dicen que me volveré loca y mi respuesta siempre es que los psiquiatras son los que se vuelven locos, no los psicólogos, y este libro define mi punto.

Terapia; es una historia que te envuelve de principio a fin, contienen tanto suspenso e incógnitas que piensas que te volverás loco en cualquier momento, cada palabra que leía me hacia querer saltar de...more

I came across this book by way of Euro Crime, an information packed blog devoted to British and European crime fiction. I was scrolling through the list of authors sorted by their country of origin looking for something recent to read by a German writer. Sebastian Fitzek's Therapy was the lucky winner because I was able to request it through the Metropolitan Library System via my library's website with a simple click of my mouse. It arrived in two or three days. I love my library. I used to be a...more

In einem Tag durchgelesen. Das soll bei mir was heißen.
Sebastian Fitzek hat es wieder geschafft, wieder einen Albtraum gebaut. Ich muss zugeben, das Ende habe ich nicht komplett verstanden, zumindest nicht immer, aber letztendlich... nun ja, vielleicht liegt das auch an meinem Alter und dem dementsprechenden Verständnis.
Nun ja, zum Stil kann ich wohl kaum etwas sagen: Wer Fitzeks Stil kennt, wird ihn auch hier wiedererkennen, und er liest sich ebenso leicht und flüssig wie sonst immer. Mir ist...more

awalnya saya membeli buku ini karena pernah mendapat versi ebook dalam bahasa aslinya, jerman. Setelah membaca dalam versi Indonesia, saya benar - benar terpukau dengan kemampuan Sebastian Fitzek dalam novel ini. Kalau anda pernah menonton Shutter Island (Leonardo Di Caprio) mungkin akan menemukan benang merah yang sama dalam novel ini. Ceritanya melibatkan seseorang yang menderita Schizofrenia dan Multiple Disorder.
Yang menarik dalam novel ini adalah, bagaimana Fitzek menggambarkan seorang psik...more

I wanted to like it, I really did. "For fans of Tana French!" reads one back cover quote. Sign me up, as I adore Tana French. This just didn't do it for me. The finale plot device was disappointing, but it had SOME promise, perhaps just written differently. I think something was (literally) lost in translation from the German, because I really hope that each chapter did not actually end in the equivalent of "[something happens which seems innocuous enough at the time:] which should have tipped m...more

This plot strained my credibility, the characters had no depth and the writing style was nothing memorable. Perhaps the translation is partly to blame, though this received starred reviews from two professional journals. Read this as a potential book for a discussion group and may go ahead with it. Could be an interesting discussion. And it is a very fast read.

Das Cover ist weiß gehalten und man sieht nur einen Arm darauf, der vermutlich an einer Scheibe drückt. Es ist somit eigentlich recht schlicht gehalten, doch mit dem Titel des Buches in Verbindung kann es auch wieder eine andere Wirkung als einfach nur schlicht sein.
Mich hat es auf jeden Fall angesprochen. Gekauft hätte ich mir das Buch sowieso, weil ich den Schreibstil und die Storys von Sebastian Fitzek einfach total gerne lese.

Worum es in diesem Buch geht ist wieder mal nicht so ganz ohne....more

Straordinario! Con “La terapia” ho scoperto un altro autore tedesco, Fitzek, che non conoscevo affatto. Questo libro è in effetti la sua prima pubblicazione come scrittore internazionale, ma da quanto ho capito, dal 2006 fino ad oggi, si è affermato velocemente e molti hanno già letto altri suoi romanzi: io sono rimasto un passo indietro! Se tutti i suoi scritti possono essere paragonati a questo, allora li divorerò uno ad uno.
Che dire? E’ stato uno dei rarissimi casi (libri gialli ne ho letti t...more

Molte persone mi hanno parlato di questo autore ma un po' per tempo e un po' per titubanza, non mi ero mai concessa una sua lettura.
Ammetto che non ho mai prediletto questo genere letterario, ma ora non posso più farne a meno.

La Terapia è il primo libro, e sicuramente non l'ultimo, di Sebastian Fitzek che mi ha attratto. (Sì, sono molto fiduciosa)

Il libro è diviso principalmente in pochi macro parti le quali contano i giorni all'arrivo della verità. Queste macro parti, a loro volta, sono sudd...more

Dafür das "Die Therapie" der Debütroman von Sebastian Fitzek ist, ist es ein sehr gutes Buch. Da ich inzwischen aber weiß welche Talente wirklich in ihm stecken, kann ich keine 5 Sterne geben. Dafür war es zu unschlüssig. Aber Danke das sie sich die Zeit genommen haben für uns zu schreiben... :-)

Dopo aver letto "Il sonnambulo", che mi era piaciuto molto, ho deciso di ritornare alle origini, e leggere il primo romanzo scritto da Fitzek. Sarò uno che va controcorrente, ma ho trovato il libro abbastanza banale: non è facile scrivere un libro sulla schizofrenia e sulle malattie mentali (volendo si può scrivere quello che si vuole, e poi con un colpo di scena cambiare completamente le carte in tavola dando la colpa alla malattia, anche se non è questo il caso) e, anche se ci sono tutte le id...more

Um anti-alucinogénio por favor! Estou agoniada. Deve ser devido ao facto de ter ficado retida na ilha de Parkum no gélido Mar do Norte durante três longos dias (quase a enlouquecer) e só hoje ver a luz.

Recommends it for: Mystery lovers who enjoy a psychiatric/psychological twist.
Recommended to Carol by: Picked it up at the library
The blurb on the cover says this is "an immensely sophisticated literary thriller that finds great tension in the interior worlds of its characters and the interplay between plot and pace." Don't know if I agree. It is a mystery, albeit an unusual one. It felt a bit gimmicky to me, and I did guess the ending about 3/4 of the way through. The main character, Viktor, is a well known psychiatrist whose twelve year old, Josy, has a worsening illness and no one can diagnose. One day he brings her to...more
