“As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I’m still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me. . . .”
I couldn’t put this book down. It literally went everywhere with me. When younger I was a Koontz fan and this reminded me of him – without the Sci-Fi. I enjoyed the almost disembodied-ness of the book; it really adds layers to how Christine feels. Whether it’s intentional or unintentional as some reader thought, I enjoed it. Reading is definately a willing suspension of disbelief, and I’ll admit that the twist in this book I didn’t see coming, though I probably should have. The insular world that Christine lives in is very intense, and there were a few coincidences, but I’m willing to forgive them for the overall story.
The only problem is it finished. I could have kept on reading.
Before I Go To Sleep S.J. Watson
Definitely a compulsive read, and a great debut novel. A fantastic commuter read, and the cover is just beautiful.
