Before I go to Sleep by S. J. Watson

Before I go to Sleep

Christine wakes up every day with no memories from the last twenty years. She wakes up expecting to be a teenaged girl, or a woman in her young twenties, with her whole life ahead of her. Every day she looks in the mirror to find that she has aged and holds no memories from the previous years. When a doctor calls and asks her to keep a journal, she begins to hold on to snatches of her life, her memories but nothing adds up.

This book is one of the most chilling and terrifying stories that I have ever read. It is a psychological thriller from the point of view of a woman who is incredibly vulnerable and alone. It is a tale of tragedy, romance, and loss, but also of fear.

I really felt for Christine because she so desperately wanted to hold onto her memories and her fragility moved me. The story is beautifully written, and the slow pace prolongs the suspense without losing the interest of the reader. An astounding novel.
