Before I Go to Sleep

Before I Go To Sleep - S.J.Watson Wow. Just wow. I cannot believe that Before I Go to Sleep is a debut. This page-turner will have you mesmerized until you flip over the very last page... Christine Lucas wakes up every morning not knowing where she is, or even who she is. No matter what she learns during that day, she'll forget it as she sleeps. So every morning is a discovery, and she goes through this routine over and over and over...When the doctor she begins to see suggests that she keep a journal to chronicle her daily "discoveries," Christine does so. And begins to wonder why Ben is lying to her--is he truly lying, or is he keeping things from her so she doesn't have to re-experience the pain every day? And does she truly trust him?Before I Go to Sleep has a tightly woven plot with a sympathetic character, and will keep you guessing, even as Christine keeps guessing. You feel her confusion, and self-placating certainty, as she travels that valley between sanity and chaos. And the twist at the end will have you holding your breath till you get through it.Definitely needs to be one of your summer reads if you love thrillers!
