Every day Christine wakes up not knowing where she is. Her memories disappear every time she falls asleep. Her husband, Ben, is a stranger to her, and he’s obligated to explain their life together on a daily basis–all the result of a mysterious accident that made Christine an amnesiac. With the encouragement of her doctor, Christine starts a journal to help jog her memory every day. One morning, she opens it and sees that she’s written three unexpected and terrifying words: “Don’t trust Ben.” Suddenly everything her husband has told her falls under suspicion. What kind of accident caused her condition? Who can she trust? Why is Ben lying to her? And, for the reader: Can Christine’s story be trusted?
Now, I’m not one for suspense or thrillers or anything that has my adrenaline pumping that way. That being said – I’m not even sure what compelled me to buy this book. Maybe it was the fact that it was amazon recommended or that it was a best seller for June 2011. Either way, I am so glad I bought it! This book was, in short, phenomenal.
One of the reviews of “Before I Go To Sleep” said I would be guessing to the very end – to which I responded by snorting and taking it as a personal challenge. I have read hundreds of books across multiple genres and I didn’t think anything could pull one over on me ……how wrong was I?! I was guessing to the very end, doubting everyone – including myself. I read this book in less than 24 hours because I just had to know! The writing is fantastic – this book could easily have become so confusing that you would get lost and discard it half way through but somehow; despite all the twist, turns and road blocks – the writer keeps you right on track.
