STAR RATINGS GUIDE
💛 Colour me conflicted. In some ways this was a fun and clever story. Woman found at scene of husband’s murder, never speaks again, convicted. And then the inevitable question of WHY? And was it her? So far so interesting and there’s lots of great dialogue and conflict. I should have loved this. So why didn’t I??
💚 I think it was the lack of character development and character inconsistencies, I never got to grips with “wife” Alice. Nor with many of the other characters, Maybe there were too many of them? Maybe this should have been longer? The point is, I had to be told that someone’s actions were out of character. I didn’t sense it from what I knew of them already.
💜 My absolute favourite book with a “silent” patient is Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney. Also very good is Try Not to Breathe by Holly Seddon.
