Before I Go To Sleep

Before I Go to Sleep

by S.J. Watson

Overview: As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I am still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me. . . . ”

Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love—all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may be telling you only half the story.

Welcome to Christine’s life.

Debbie Weiss (11/07/15): I really loved this book. Christina wakes up each day with no memory of the of the previous day or days. Who of the strangers that she interacts with on each new day can she trust? Her husband? Her doctor? Her "best" friend? None? All? This book keeps you in suspense until the very end. I had a hard time putting this one down!

Marie Geesa (10/08/15): This book is a thriller but also very scary - given the right circumstances it could happen to you! But you would have a loving support group around you to help you find out who you are - right? But Christine did not! The solution is revealing and clever. Enjoy!

Judy Copek (10/08/15): Before I Go To Sleep was a "page turner" with lots of twists and surprises. It has a creepiness factor that stays with the reader. Our book club read it and had a positive response. I don't know if this kind of amnesia really exists (it's frightening), but it worked well in the novel. This week's review summarized the plot, so I won't go there except to say be prepared to be surprised. . . and scared

Judy Stanton (09/20/15): If you like thrillers with lots of twists and turns where the ending still surprises you, you will LOVE Before I Go to Sleep by S J Watson. I did. It's an engrossing page turner based on the life of a woman who suffers from amnesia due to a life trauma. While the premise seems "trite"....someone who wakes up every morning having forgotten the last day ..... the execution of the story is gripping. Plus, I was interested to know that the author worked for the National Health Service in England and based his work on the lives of several amnesiac patients. Just reserved his second book from the library, stay tuned :)
