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.

    "Great story that captured me from beginning to end"

    I loved this story! A very interesting concept and not your typical book. Great narrator as well. This author is fast becoming one of my favorites!

    "Story is wonderful-narrator is wonderful"

    This is a great story with great humor and emotion-I love the characters. Tamara Lovatt Smith is absolutely awesome in her narration of Liane Moriarty's books!

    Story
    "I'm teetering between not liking and loving this"

    She's close to achieving something excellent, but falls short. I wanted this to be better and hoped it would be as it developed. I detected in this woman a wonderful writer that just couldn't quite launch her book with the full seriousness that I felt it deserved. Her main character -- a hypnotist -- was almost too pat. But then again, she wasn't quite too pat. Her husband was better than he seemed and almost too good to be true. The stalker was too good to be true, but maybe not. It was all just resting on the edge of being just too pat. However, now that I have read the third one, I recommend that you read this and her other, slightly older book first. Read them in order, and you will end up being a great fan.

    Story
    "OK"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'd like it to be funnier, in the lines of "Pretty little lies."


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

    Yes, I got this one because I had listened to "Pretty little lies" and LOVED it. This one is completely different. It's OK, but not what I was looking for.


    Have you listened to any of Tamara Lovatt Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, that's how I came about Liane Moriarty. I like her performance.


    Did The Hypnotist's Love Story inspire you to do anything?

    Not really.

    "Good book but not a normal romance book"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The hypnotist and main character, she was very easy to relate to.


    Any additional comments?

    Reading this book has made me reconsider hypnotism as a therapy method. Very interesting read.

    Any additional comments?

    I love all of Liane Moriarty's books and this is another great one. The story is suspenseful and interesting and the characters are very realistic. The reader/listener is truly able to relate to both the hypnotist and the stalker. It is not every day that you read a book where the antagonist is so understandable and even sympathetic.

    Story
    "Not Moriarty's best"
    Where does The Hypnotist's Love Story rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've read almost all of Moriarty's books and this one was lacking some of the best elements of her books. I missed the witty twists and perfect dialogue. Don't get me wrong, this book was really good but just not one of her best.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Hypnotist's Love Story and why?

    Definitely Saskea. I loved the way she wasn't what you expected her to be when she narrated, you could sympathize with her and even slightly relate to her.

    "I love her!"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was wonderful for a person like me. Highly analytic and fun to read! I love books where there is no villain and no heroin, no black and white, and this book delivered. I loved the characters and loved that I could relate to both! Although Saskia was a very exaggerated bitter ex-girlfriend, I found myself really relating to her! I loved the book, its emphasis on the power of perception and living in the gray area of life. Beautiful!

    Story
    "Another great one from Moriarty.."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would most definitely recommend this book to friends because it is a fun and sweet love story. It isn't your usual fluff. Moriarty has such a great way with words.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They all had their good traits but I would have to say The Hypnotist was my favorite character with all of her talents and quirks, you can't help but pull for her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love the scenes from the beach where she starts to see a future with a family of her own.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Hypnotist's Love Story and why?

    The most memorable character would be The Hypnotist but her stalker was intense and also memorable. It is hard to chose.


    Any additional comments?

    I have become a big Moriarty fan. Especially on audiobooks when Tamara narrates the story. Her voice is like silk. I can't wait for the next one with this team!
