The Hypnotist's Love Story | [Liane Moriarty]

The Hypnotist's Love Story

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?" She’s more intrigued than frightened. She’d love to meet her. What she doesn’t know is that she already has.

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.

    Story
    "Slight Disappointment"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would only recommend this book if someone is looking for a way to waste time. It is so long and is such a labor. I kept thinking it would get better, but it continued to drag. A shorter, greatly edited version would yield a better book.


    If you’ve listened to books by Liane Moriarty before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    Story
    "How to understand a Psycho!"
    What did you love best about The Hypnotist's Love Story?

    It was fun and interesting how she told both sides of the story. From the point of view of Ellen the hypnotist and the point of view of the stalker Sashki. And you or I rather start to feel empathy for the stalker. Its as if she has questions and was cut off from a relationship without notice. And she can not let go but then I also understand Ellens point of view. And in the end I completely get Patrick's point of view.


    What other book might you compare The Hypnotist's Love Story to and why?

    I can't think of one that compares to this story its a unique book.


    What does Tamara Lovatt Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked her narration of the book I enjoyed listening to her tell the story and bring the characters to life off the pages.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    That is not possible for me but yes I could have listened to it in one sitting if I had the time but fortunately that is not possible However, I did look forward to my commute to work and even driving longer distances did not bother me because I could listen to the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I completely recommend this book its funny and interesting and sad all in one.

    Story
    "Loved it, heard it twice!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hypnotist's Love Story to be better than the print version?

    I dont have the print version of this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Each characters' story developed beautifully. To see how the 2 female characters dealt with the each other and the stalking situation was great. I really loved the switch from one women to the other for the different sides.
