When Ellen meets Patrick, she’s hopeful nevertheless. But when he says he needs to tell her something, she fears the worst.

Publisher's Summary

From the author of the critically acclaimed What Alice Forgot comes a wonderfully fun, insightful novel about the crazy things we do for love.

Ellen O’Farrell is a bit unusual. She’s a hypnotherapist. She’s never met her father. And she can’t seem to keep a relationship going. (Okay, that’s more normal that we want to admit.) When Ellen meets Patrick, she’s hopeful nevertheless. But when he says he needs to tell her something, she fears the worst.

When Patrick reveals that his ex-girlfriend is stalking him, Ellen thinks, "Is that all? Actually, that’s kind of neat." She’s more intrigued than frightened. What makes a supposedly smart, professional woman behave this way? She’d love to meet her. What she doesn’t know is that she already has.

    "Loved this read!"

    A big Liane Moriarty fan, I looked forward to hearing this book. It may have been a few chapters longer than it needed to be. I did enjoy the characters tho.

    Story
    "Great Story-Narrator Combination"
    What made the experience of listening to The Hypnotist's Love Story the most enjoyable?

    I'm making my way through Liane Moriarty's books and I like them so much! Part of it is the way this narrator captures the humor and the Australian setting without being cloying or overbearing. Moriarty's gentle insights into behavior and relationships usually ring true to me, though the compulsion portrayed in The Hypnotist's Wife got a bit thick as the story went on. But Ellen's relationships with Patrick, Jack, Ann, and her clients are fully and artfully drawn, and the plot moves along in an engaging way. I usually listen to mysteries and thrillers because I need the plot to hold my attention on my 35-minute commute, but Moriarty provides lovely variety. Although I have enjoyed some of her other novels more, this is an excellent listen!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hypnotist's Love Story?

    When Ellen realizes Deborah is actually Saskia


    What about Tamara Lovatt Smith’s performance did you like?

    Her lovely accent and wry sense of the humor of the text.


    If you could take any character from The Hypnotist's Love Story out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Ellen. Just Ellen.

    Story
    "Confusing narration"

    The story was decent but because it was the same narrator and the point of view often jumped from character to character it was difficult to follow.
    It did, however, make me want to visit a hypnotist!

    "Great book"

    I always enjoy books by this author and this book was no exception. It was very entertaining, and engrossing, and actually gave me some things to think about myself.

    "Not up to Par"

    This story just didn't compare to her other titles that I have read. No a total disappointment, but if you are looking for ones like her others, scroll on past this one.

    "Wonderful read; superb narrator!"

    Really enjoyed this story - even more than "The Husband's Secret" and "Big Little Lies". I think Liane Moriarty is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.

    "Another Moriarty worth reading"

    Took a bit longer than usual to get into this one and not my favorite Moriarty book but still very enjoyable and interesting. She is better than most writers at developing characters and getting in to their heads.

    "Not the best story"

    I enjoyed the premise but it was a bit boring. It is an ok book but not as good as the husband's secret or big little lies.
