Before I Go To Sleep: A Novel - S. J. Watson

Before I Go To Sleep: A Novel - S. J. Watson 


This one kept me up late into the night.  The concept behind Before I Go To Sleep is a great one.  As a result of a traumatic brain injury, Christine wakes up each day with no memory of her identity, her friends and family, or her past.  At the urging of her doctor, Christine begins keeping a journal, and soon her memories of the details of her life and the circumstances behind the event that lead to her amnesia gradually unfold.   I thought the ending was only 'meh,' but I didn't hate it and the rest of the book was absolutely riveting, so it's all good.
