Before I Go to Sleepby S. J. Watson
Synopses & Reviews
S. J. Watson makes his powerful debut with this compelling, fast-paced psychological thriller, reminiscent of Shutter Island and Memento, in which an amnesiac who,following a mysterious accident, cannot remember her past or form new memories, desperately tries to uncover the truth about who she is — and who she can trust.
“Watson's debut novel unwinds as a story that is both complicated and compellingly hypnotic. . . . Watson's pitchperfect writing propels the story to a frenzied climax that will haunt readers long after they've closed the cover on this remarkable book.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“An intriguingly fresh look at the amnesia-focused psychological thriller. . . . A captivating and highly suspenseful read, populated with believable characters who lead the reader through a taut, well-constructed plot.” Library Journal
“An exceptional thriller. It left my nerves jangling for hours after I finished the last page.” Dennis Lehane
“The summer's single most suspenseful plot belongs to BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP. . . . pure page-turner.” New York Times
“Memories — real, false, and a bit of both — are at the heart of Watson's haunting, twisted debut.…Watson handles what could have turned into a cheap narrative gimmick brilliantly, building to a chillingly unexpected climax.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
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.
