When I first heard about this on the TV Book Club I was intrigued and immediately added it to my Amazon wish list. Fast-forward a few months and I was delighted to receive it as a birthday gift. This is S. J. Watson’s first novel and can best by described as a psychological thriller (as is ... Read review

It was a struggle to put it down when I wanted to sleep!

Advantagesa compelling read, a sympathetic central character, convincing plot including twists

Disadvantagesmmm...none for me

"...has no memory of events before that day and wakes up every morning believing she is a young woman or even a child. Discovering her body is nearly 50 is always a tremendous shock; discovering the man sharing her bed is her husband, Ben, is an equal shock. She may not know who she is, but at least she can trust Ben. Or can she? == My thoughts == I found the central concept reminded me of ‘Memento’, a film I absolutely loved, and I was keen to ..."

When I wake up, this wont even be a distant memory... Review with images

AdvantagesPlot, raises awareness, characters

DisadvantagesNone for me but some may find it a little slow in places

"I tend the stick to my chick lit books and rarely stray away from my comfort zone! This way I have a good idea of what I am getting and chances are I will enjoy it and find it a light and easy read. One Saturday a couple of months ago I turned on the TV and The TV Book Club was on. I rarely watch this but the presenters and guests were raving about some particular book so I decided to leave it on and see what all the excitement was about. The book ..." Read review

Trust Nobody

AdvantagesEnthralling and readable

DisadvantagesNone

"Film fans were introduced to the idea of short term memory loss through _50 First Dates_ – a light-hearted romantic film about a woman who wakes up every morning with no memory of anything that has happened the day before, or in fact any of the preceding years. _Before I Go to Sleep_ takes this a step further, turning memory loss into a disorientating and terrifying experience where nothing can be trusted, even your own family. This novel is a cleverly ..." Read review

Briliant and chilling thriller

AdvantagesBrilliant narrative, intense

DisadvantagesNone

"...assure you, it is not. Before I Go To Sleep is a chilling thriller about a woman who suffers from a severe form of amnesia that means that everytime she falls asleep she loses most of her memories and wakes up thinking that she is still in her mid-twenties. She has absolutely no recollection of the accident that caused her amnesia or the fact that the man she wakes up next to everyday is her husband, Ben. Every morning Ben explains the situation to ..."

Before I go to sleep- will send you to sleep!

AdvantagesA good underlying story

DisadvantagesUnneccesary sexual references, repetitive

"...going to be a thriller before reading the description on the back. I have studied Psychology at A level so when I realised the book was about Amnesia and its effects on an individual, I thought this was going to be an instant winner for me as I find anything psychological highly interesting. I decided to do some research into the book and found that it had been very successful, it has been translated into over 30 languages and is a best seller in ..." Read review
