Before I go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

About the book

Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love – all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story. Welcome to Christine’s life.

A page turner. Cleverly written – none of us guessed the outcome until very near the end. Difficult to write as though you have no memory. A couple of simple errors where she knew how to do things without being told”

    “A fascinating story of the frightening circumstances of complete memory loss. We follow her journal trying to find herself and her feeling all is not right. A thriller with a twist at the end. Very much enjoyed, provoking a good discussion.

    “Well constructed. Raised lots of interesting points. Suspense built throughout the novel. Best to suspend any disbelief. We were left with a feeling of disquiet. An excellent book for discussion”
