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 only be telling you half the story.
Welcome to Christine's life.
Wow what a great book! Before I Go To Sleep is the debut novel from S.J. Watson. This is one of my favorite books from 2011. Most of the story is structured as a diary recounting daily events. Every morning Christine Lucas awakes with no idea of who she is, where she is, and who the man is sleeping beside her. She suffered a terrible attack eighteen years ago that has left her unable to retain memories. However, with the help of a doctor who specializes in memory disorders, Christine begins to keep a journal that helps her piece together her past and how she ended up the way she has. Before I Go To Sleep is a thriller that will leave you guessing until the final page. A really entertaining read!
