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. ( )

That was one hell of a roller-coaster ride! Had me clutching my blanket, gasping and shaking until the very last pages. A fantastic read! ( )

I have waited quite a while to get my hands on this book. I’m not sure why but it seems hard to find at your typical secondhand shops and even in an audio version. I’d read Second Life a few years back and really enjoyed it. It was also around the time I read The Silent Wife by ASA Harrison and found them being compared so I always had this one in the back of my mind.
Anyway, this was pretty good. Every time I’d read the summary though, I had to go back and look at some of my previously read books because it kept sounding so familiar. But I had not read it so it began. This was definitely quite a story. Great premise and I definitely did not expect the end twist in the way it occurred.
To have to be reminded each day of who you are, what the people around you mean to you, and even what happened to bring you to this point by your husband who you do not know because you forget when you sleep. Oh crazily amazing! ( )

I am still overcome with FEELINGS about this book, having finished it only a few hours ago. The first handful of pages were uneventful despite the premise but I kept on, assuming it would get better. And oh, did it get better. So many twists and turns, and a very clever use of the written word within the narrative. I spent half the time I was reading it guessing what the hell was going on - and naturally, when the final gut-wrenching twist came, I wasn't even close to the truth. Amazing, startling, emotional stuff. I'm so looking forward to reading more of SJ Watson's works. ( )

Plus a half a star. The author set himself a very hard task to write this in the first person. I enjoyed the early part of the book best as it had freshness and intriguing detail. Later on I found it a bit repetitive and the mystery evaporated as I worked the plot out for myself. I found myself skipping over text towards the end in an effort to finish rather than abandon. [Spoiler] And a bit queasy about the violence - the more description, the less effective. ( )

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.
