Christine wakes up every morning in an unfamiliar bed with an unfamiliar man. And every morning that man must explain that he is Ben, he is her husband; she is forty-seven years old; and a terrible accident two decades earlier decimated her ability to form new memories. But it's the phone call from a neurologist named Dr. Nash that directs her to her hidden journal. For the past few weeks, Christine has been recording her activities and rereading past entries, learning the facts of her life as retold by the husband upon whom she is completely dependent. As the entries accumulate, Christine finds herself asking more and more questions-about what she missed and what Ben might not be telling her…

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea ruined by a contrived and predictable plot This started out seeming like a good read, but when I figured out the ending a couple of chapters in, I was disappointed. It quickly became predictable and repetitive. I understand that the writer was trying to show that each day was much like the next, but he spent far too much time on Christine's underwear and coffee/tea and cookies. If he'd spent more time creating an original plot, I would have like the book better. Much of the story was ordinary and predictable or downright unbelievable. There wasn't much suspense, unless you count wondering whether Dr Nash was going to buy her a cookie or a piece of cake when they were at the cafe (again).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not put this down I could not put this book down or read it fast enough. The story was engrossing and captivating. It is a bit unrealastic with an unbelievable plot - but who cares, it is a good beach read and worth every second!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I took this book with me on vacation and I practically read it all cross-Atlantic. I couldn't put it down. The last few chapters really take you for a twist just when you think you may have figured it out! I would certainly recommend this page-turner to anyone wanting an entertaining, mindless read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read! I wasn't really sure what to expect when I picked this book up, as it was a random Christmas gift. I have to say though, I was not disappointed! Keeps you on your toes, and you are forced to feel many differing emotions for different characters throughout! I recommend you read it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Before I Go to Sleep This was a good read. The author skillfully and artfully wove the story in a concise and easy to read manner yet maintained the mystery to the end. I read this book in 2 days and enjoyed every minute of it. I gave this rating because it was easy to read, easy to follow, and had a logical thread to the story. The main character was nicely developed ... the author did not fall into the trap of making her a hysterical, mental case. The main character had a problem that a woman of reasonable intelligence and strength of character reasoned out given her disabilities. Nicely done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful End I started reading this book awhile ago but stopped because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to put the book down. I was right about not being able to put the book down. I started reading this book again yesterday and finished it just now. All I have to say without ruining the book or anything was that it is sad but it had a beautiful ending. I love the way the book was written like a journal. It made the main character feel real like I was reading a true story not something made up. The details, of what it's like not remembering anything for more than a day, was written with great care. I really enjoyed this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow What a good book! A bit dry in the middle but it picks it all up and puts it together. Most say they are "left hanging" in the end, I disagree, think about the whole book, it makes sense :D

Editorial Reviews

“An exceptional thriller. It left my nerves jangling for hours after I finished the last page.” —Dennis Lehane“Imagine drifting off every night knowing that your memories will be wiped away by morning. That’s the fate of Christine Lucas, whose bewildering internal world is rendered with chilling intimacy in this debut literary thriller. . . . You’ll stay up late reading until you know.” —People (4 stars)“The summer’s single most suspenseful plot belongs to Before I Go to Sleep. . . . pure page-turner.”—New York Times“Quite simply the best debut novel I have ever read.” —Tess Gerritsen“Memories—real, false, and a bit of both—are at the heart of Watson’s haunting, twisted debut…. Watson handles what could have turned into a cheap narrative gimmick brilliantly, building to a chillingly unexpected climax.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)“This mesmerizing, skillfully written debut novel works on multiple levels. It is both an affecting portrait of the profound impact of a debilitating illness and a pulse-pounding thriller whose outcome no one could predict.” —Booklist (starred review)“An intriguingly fresh look at the amnesia-focused psychological thriller. . . . A captivating and highly suspenseful read, populated with believable characters who lead the reader through a taut, well-constructed plot.” —Library Journal“Watson’s debut novel unwinds as a story that is both complicated and compellingly hypnotic. . . . Watson’s pitch–perfect writing propels the story to a frenzied c
