Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson

before.jpg

Christine Lucas was in a car accident that resulted in amnesia of an odd sort. Every time she goes to sleep she forgets who she is and what happened in the last 24 hours. When we first meet her she receives a phone call from a Dr. Nash who tells her about a journal she's been writing in. We discover, along with Christine, the details of her past and present. We're left guessing from the very beginning as page one of her journal says 'don't trust Ben.' Ben is her husband--or is he? Who should Christine trust? This is Watson's debut novel which was inspired in part by the lives of several amnesiac patients, most notably Henry Gustav Molaison and Clive Wearing. He has given us a thought provoking thriller topped off with psychological drama. Check catalog for availability.
