This is dying everyday. Over and over.”Excerpt from:
Before I Go To Sleep
by S. J. Watson
Synopsis from Goodreads
Christine wakes up every morning in an unfamiliar bed with an unfamiliar man. She looks in the mirror and sees an unfamiliar, middle-aged face. And every morning, the man she has woken up with must explain that he is Ben, he is her husband, she is forty-seven years old, and a terrible accident two decades earlier decimated her ability to form new memories.
Every day, Christine must begin again the reconstruction of her past. And the closer she gets to the truth, the more unbelievable it seems.
I read this novel long before I began this blog and thought I’d share it with you all today. This book is excellent. I wasn’t able to put this novel down; it made my heart beat faster. I was curious about what might happen next. It was insanely fantastic, and the suspense was uncontrollable near the end.
I was completely captivated to every page because the story of the main character, Christine, was so compelling and emotional. The nice thing about this suspenseful book was that the solutions were right in front of me; yet, I couldn’t reach out and touch them since the protagonist was unable to see or feel them. My thoughts were wandering during the whole time I was reading this book as I attempted to piece together the mystery. I particularly loved doing this whenever I read psychological thriller novels since it caused me to imagine strange, inconceivable thoughts while I was reading books like these.
This novel truly pleased me, and I can see why it was turned into a movie (which I have watched and felt dismayed). Readers of all kinds, even those unfamiliar with the psychological thriller subgenre, will enjoy this book. You’ll be so grateful for it that you’ll ask for more.
I totally recommend it to those who still did not get a chance to read it. So flabbergasting til the end. ☺️
