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 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected. I was given this book, and was skeptical at first, as I do not often enjoy "movie tie-in" books, but this was quite enjoyable. I was happy to be surprised numerous times as the plot twisted and turned up until its conclusion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down My dad, sister and I were all fighting over this book as we read it at the same time. Kept us guessing that's for sure, loved it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just OK An interesting story, but definitely repetitive at times. It left me unsatisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Concept.... Predictable Plot The book started off good, and had my interest but it slowly dwindled down. I figured out the ending well before the book ended, sad it so predictable. Not enough suspense for my liking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Intriguing This book was well written, the story is interesting and has some great twists and turns. It is however, quite a depressing story!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Quick read and I liked that it was written completely from a journal entry perspective. I was pleased with the ending.

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.

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 climax that will haunt readers long after they’ve closed the cover on this remarkable book.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)“A deft, perceptive exploration of a fascinating neurological condition, and a cracking good thriller.” —Lionel Shriver“Brilliant in its pacing, profound in its central question, suspenseful on every page and satisfying in its thriller ending.” —Anita Shreve
