The Silver Linings Playbook: Book Review

Behind every cloud there’s a silver lining. This is certainly the philosophy ardently held by Pat People’s, the mentally unstable protagonist in Matthew Quick’s debut novel, ‘The Silver Linings Playbook’ which has already been adapted into a major film which recently hit cinemas.
After a stint in a psychiatric hospital, Pat is on a mission to become physically fit and to practice being kind so as to reconcile with his estranged wife Nikki. He imagines his life as a movie produced by God.

As secrets unravel and a friendship emerges with recovering sex addict, Tiffany, readers are taken on a narrative journey which explores a riveting path about life, love, insanity and the blind optimism sometimes necessary for the happy ending we seek so far out in the distance that we are not yet able to see.

As we see Pat endeavour through his life’s obstacles with a positive mind set, readers will be taken on a journey brimming with an optimistic spin on less than ideal circumstances. A book guaranteed to give you hope.
