it was ok

** spoiler alert ** I listened to Mr. Michaelides novel via an audio version. I wanted to like it more than I did. To me, the narrator, Theo, is unsympathetic from the jump. The idea that two psychotherapists with personal links to the "silent patient" are at the same facility strains credulity. We never learn enough about what makes Alicia Berenson tick to develop any real sympathy for her. Early on, it's easy to see that Theo is an unreliable narrator so that when the "big reveal" comes, it's flat.
