Every morning Christine Lucas wakes up remembering herself twenty years younger than her near-fifty year appearance in the bathroom mirror. Nor does she remember the man who lies next to her in their bed. Shortly after her husband Ben awakens, he informs her that they are in a loving marriage and that they repeat this orientation each morning because she had a traumatic accident in her late twenties which makes it impossible to consolidate her daily memories into long-term memories.

Shortly after her husband leaves for work, Christine receives a phone call from a man introducing himself as neuropsychologist, Dr. Nash, who has been assisting her in restoring her memory. He informs her of the location of a journal that she has been recording her daily life as as part of her therapy. When she retrieves the journal, inscribed on the inside front cover is three words: DON'T TRUST BEN.

The author's plot successfully builds tension until all is revealed at the climax. Since Christine fabricates memories, Ben withholds information and has been caught by Christine in lies, and Dr. Nash presence in Christine's life is unknown to Ben, I didn't know for some time who, if any, was the good guy. This is a beach read, therefore it is an easy read for vacations. So read the book and then watch the movie starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth. ( )

Quite a page-turner, couldn't put it down until finished. ( )

Christine wakes up each morning unable to remember anything that has happened to her for years due to a brain injury. Each day she has to be reminded of who she is and who the people in her life are.

Good thriller with an exciting finale. Although I had glimmerings of the truth, it was still unexpected.

Unfortunately, I had the American edition of this ebook. Having people in North London talking about sidewalks and the hoods of cars and using other American terms rather jerked me out of the story at various points. ( )

First let me say wow. This was better than I expected when I first started reading. Though the end result is one thats easy to predict (same general idea as many others) the journey from beginning to end was captivating.

Definitely give this one a chance, well worth the time! ( )

While I was sucked into the story right away, the format didn't keep me fully engaged. Christine is an amnesiac and has to continue writing in a journal each day to remind herself of who she is and how she is related to man named Ben who claims is her husband. While I enjoyed the premise of the story and knew that there were obviously some things seriously wrong with what was going on between Ben and Christine. The plot was delivered too slowly for my taste. Revisiting some of the same details that Christine had to read over in her journal or rehash out because she didn't know what to believe became too repetitive. I don't think the book was too long, but I wanted additional conflict considering I knew what was going to happen. I have seen this movie years ago so while I couldn't remember specific details, I remembered the overall premise and thought the book moved a bit too slowly. ( )

What if you woke up every morning, confused and lost? What if the body you woke up in was not the body you remember going to sleep in? What if you were oblivious to the events of the last 30 years of your life? Memories are what define all of us as people. But when you wake up, tangled in lies, visions and fleeting images of memories that seem to dark and fiction to seem real, how do you make sense of that?

Welcome to the life of Christine Lucas, a middle aged woman suffering from extreme amnesia, who has no memory of what happened in her life for her past 30 years. When she sleeps, her memory melts away, like snow on a spring day.

The highly acclaimed, internationally best seller is truly a suspenseful, interesting and gripping book that will keep you entertained for all 356 pages of it. For lovers of Mysteries, this is a must read book, and I highly recommend it to everybody.

What if you woke up every morning, confused and lost, and unfamiliar with your own reflection in the mirror? What would you do when you wake up, tangled in lies, visions and fleeting images of memories that seem to dark and fiction to seem real?

Welcome to the life of Christine Lucas, a victim of an unsettling accident leaving her unable to retain memories for longer than 24 hours. When she sleeps, her memory melts away, like snow on a spring day. Keeping a diary of her daily events, she fits the pieces of her life puzzle together; she reaches a disturbing conclusion.

The Journal style format of this book creates a truly unique style of writing, one that truly pulls you into the struggles of Christine’s daily life. The narration gives the reader a striking insight into the daily battle of discovering her identity. However, the style of daily journal entries can make the book slow at parts, but much like a roller coaster, it is all simply preparation for the plunge of excitement.

For lovers of mysteries and psychological thrillers, this is a must read book. However, I still highly recommend it to everybody. The sudden flashbacks, the distorted images and the faint impression that things are not at all what they seem. This book will make you rethink all of your unclear memories; it will keep you extremely entertained.

The ending feels hurried; a sentimental postscript to the meticulously plotted main event. But these are minor gripes. Before I Go to Sleep is an enjoyable and impressive first novel. Like the best of its thematic predecessors, it is also an affecting moral allegory: don't forget your loved ones. Or else.

The most unnerving aspect of Before I Go to Sleep is the way it is rooted in the domestic, the suburban, the trivial. Forget whizz-bang futurism: it proceeds from ordinary life in tiny, terrifying steps, and is all the better for it.

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.
