Before I Go To Sleep

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.

When Christine wakes up she doesn’t remember who the man lying next to her is. When she looks at herself in the mirror she it isn’t what she expects. She has lost her memory. The man tells her his name is Ben and he is her husband.

However when he goes to work she receives a call from a man saying he is her doctor. She agrees to meet him and he gives her a journal telling her she has been writing in it for the past few weeks and had given it to him to read.

Christine is about to learn about her life. All the things that she has forgotten over the many years. How everyday she has been reading the journal and being reminded of the not just the pains of her past but also that everything as it is now might not be quite as it seems. A realisation that is about to completely change her life, again.

This book had been recommended to me from a view people but I wasn’t really fussed about reading it because I have read a few books about people loosing their memory and presumed it would be the same. However I must admit now that I was wrong. This book is not like any others I have read about a similar topic. As you read you are drawn in by the fact that everything just doesn’t seem quite right. As the story progresses and we learn more about Christine’s pass and the characters you start to come up with idea’s that might explain what is going on but you are always left with that little bit of doubt that makes you think you are wrong. I was really impressed by this book, it was a unique take on the idea and the story really had you gripped and guessing the whole way through.
