(87)Before I Sleep by S.J. Watson

We all just take it for granted that when we wake up tomorrow we will remember the details of our life. We assume we will recognize our husband and remember the details of how we met. That is not the case for Christine.

Before I Sleep is a thriller of an extreme magnitude. Christine lives in London with her husband, Ben. But she has a rare form of amnesia and can not create new memories. She does not remember yesterday, she does not remember last year or even ten years ago.

Every morning when she wakes up she thinks she is in her early twenties. Only she is not, she is in her forties and she doesn't remember the last twenty years. Unbeknownst to Ben, Christine starts seeing a psycharitrist on the side who suggests that she start to keep a daily journal. Before she goes to sleep, she is to write her daily activities down and read them the next day. In doing so she starts to piece together the memories of her past and she starts to notice some glaring inconsistencies.

Before I Go To Sleep is a book that fans of thrillers are going to LOVE. Think of it as a cross between 50 First Dates and Memento. It is dark, sinister, and will keep you on the edge of your seats. Rumor has it that Ridley Scott has bought the rights and I suspect it will be a hit at the box office, too. Before I Go To Sleep goes on sale tomorrow.

Thanks for posting about this book! I really enjoyed it!

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
