Before I Go to Sleep (2011)

Before I Go to SleepBefore I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Imagine waking up every morning with no memory of the day before? Or not knowing that the man sleeping next to you is your husband? That is the dilemma facing Christine in Before I Go to Sleep. At her doctor's urging she begins keeping a diary but has to reread it everyday.

This is a cleverly imagined and compelling first novel once you have suspended disbelief and buy into the story. Bit by bit the reader learns of conflicting and disturbing information along with the narrator. But what will putting the pieces together reveal and which can be relied upon?
