The Therapist by Helene Flood
This was the fourth book i chose for the #newts #readathon #newtsreadathon2019 , «a book that ends in an even page number». This book was numbered with 399 pages, but there was an extra half page that didn’t have any number so i counted that as page number 400 😄 It gave me an A in Arithmancy, and i still need E and O to finish the class! 🍀
This book was super hyped so i was hoping that i would (finally) love a paychological thriller... but i guess i just have to accept that this genre is not for me 🙈
The therapist is about Sara who’s a psychologist and has her own office at home. She’s living with her husband Sigurd who also works a lot! One day when Sigurd is supposed to be at a cabin trip with his friends, one of them are calling to ask Sara if she knows where he is, because he never got to the cabin. Sara finds this weird, since she just got a call from him, telling her that he got to the cabin safely. From this point the psychological part of the book spreads through the rest of the story as we follow Sara during the police-investigation of what happened to her husband. It’s really creepy at some points when Sara is hearing footsteps inside her house at night, and things are missing and then appearing again. However, my amusement stops here.
I think the plot was a bit flat.. and even though i was prettt surprised at the ending, i felt like i could have got the ending half way in. BUT as some of you might know now, i’ve really never been a fan of psychological thrillers and that may be the reason for my assessment of this book! 😊 Because of the surprising ending, and the easy language, i gave it 3 stars!
Q: do you like psychological thrillers? Which book should i read if i were to give this genre another go? ☺️ - 11 hours ago
