A Novel

S. J. Watson

Description

"As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I’m still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me. . . ."

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 be telling you only half the story.

Welcome to Christine's life.

Publishers Weekly Review

May 02, 2011 – Memories—real, false, and a bit of both—are at the heart of British author Watson's haunting, twisted debut. Christine Lucas awakens each morning in London with no idea who she is or why she's in bed with a strange man, until he tells her that his name is Ben and they've been married for 22 years. Slowly, Christine learns that she has amnesia and is unable to remember her past or retain new memories: every night when she falls asleep, the slate is wiped clean. Dr. Nash, her therapist, has encouraged her to write in a journal that she keeps secret from Ben. Christine realizes how truly tangled—and dangerous—her life is after she sees the words "don't trust Ben" written in her journal, whose contents reveal that the only person she can trust is herself. Watson handles what could have turned into a cheap narrative gimmick brilliantly, building to a chillingly unexpected climax.

Customer Reviews

Engrossing

I have to admit to being disappointed that I am done with the book. Very well written, very engrossing, very thought-provoking. Definitely one that is now included on my must read list. With this fist novel, the author has definitely set a high bar. I look forward to his next novel.

Very hard to put down!

Once you start you almost can't stop. I am a big fan of the movie Memento, so I couldn't resist getting this book. It held me the entire time. My heart feared for her. Definitely worth reading.

Before I Go To Sleep

Fascinating subject and excellent writing. Literally couldn't put it down. Thank you to the author for writing this book.
