    What are we, if not an accumulation of our memories I ve had my eye on this book since before it was released and last night I decided it was finally time I really wanted a psychological thriller that would keep me guessing And did it deliver Well, let s just say I was up until 2am, partly because this book is unputdownable, and partly because it s a little hard to turn the light off and go to sleep afterwards.Before I Go to Sleep is about a woman called Christine who wakes up every morning with no memory of who she is Through labeled pictures and the help of her husband, every day she pieces together her life and learns of the accident that made her this way But then a visit from a mysterious doctor leads her towards the private journal she has been writing to herself a journal that tells her things might not be as they seem and the one person she should be able to trust could be lying Personally, I found this book so thrilling I loved almost everything about it Christine was a complex and interesting character I was pulled so far inside her mind that the novel s events literally made my heart pound I love how creepy the novel is and I very much enjoyed almost but not quite figuring out the reveals at the end.For me, the best kind of thrillers are those where the story is strong enough that it isn t ruined by an astute reader In other words if you guess what is going to happen, it doesn t really matter And I t...

    I only read reviews on Goodreads after I have read a book I do this because after reading those reviews I wonder if I have read the same book as those reviewing it Most start by giving a somewhat lengthly explanation of the plot of the book Why tell me what you thought I know what it is about I want to know what you thought of it At this point I get really crazy because the opinions almost always are positive I wish these people were my high school English teachers I would have gotten A s for anything I wrote.This book has one t...

    I can overlook a lot of bogus tude for a good story, but this one exceeded my implausibility tolerance threshold The analytical portion of my brain wants to give this an even lower rating, but it did hold my interest, so I have to be fair It has a sinister edge that keeps you reading at least until you start figuring everything out long before it s revealed If I listed all the laughable incongruities and convenient coincidences, I d ruin it fo...

    My negative attitude is a ruse, I swear it I am such a positive little outlooker Nearly every book I read starts off with five stars in my head It barely has to earn anything it just has to hold on to what it started with But wow, this book fell off a cliff or something What the hell happened First let s back the truck out of these plot holes and start from the beginning.The premise of this psychological thriller is fairly straightforward The first person narrator has amnesia More specifically, she has a mythical combination of several different forms of amnesia which happen to co exist simultaneously at the exact same time Maybe that should have been my first clue She has retrograde amnesia as a result of a mysterious traumatic episode that occurred years earlier, and on top of this she has anterograde amnesia which affects her episodic memory she cannot retain anything new My second clue that this book would be an eye roller is that she has a short term memory capacity of many hours essentially an entire day s worth and it is erased only when she falls asleep, which flagrantly stretches the definition of anterograde...

    I think I tend to judge books harshly when I listen to them because I can t skim the text or skip parts that bore me BUT I DON T KNOW MAYBE THAT S JUST MORE HONEST.Before I Go to Sleep is a highly improbable novel that s practically a fantasy A very slow, drawn out, horribly written fantasy Christine, the protagonist, wakes up in a strange bed with a strange man He tells her he s her husband, Ben, and she has amnesia she cannot form short term memories Think Memento Hey, in fact, this book is just like that movie Determined to figure out the mystery of her past, Christine sees a doctor in secret and keeps a day to day journal That s pretty much all you need to know.The bulk of the book is Christine rereading her journal Which is just ENDLESS accounts about how confusing and terrifying things are Ugh, we get the point Perhaps that would be realistic, but it s hardly INTERESTING for the reader Throughout the book, one finds out as Christine does that her husband is lying to her about how she got amnesia she was attacked he tells her it s a car accident , her son he says they have no kids they had a son , her best friend moving away nope , etc etc Obviously something is creepily wrong, and yet Christine is like, Hmmm GUESS I LL JUST STAY HERE WITH THIS CREEPY LYING DUDE We also discover that Christine was havin...

    June 15th 2am 2011I am writing this down in my journal I must do this otherwise I fear tomorrow I might not remember anything Anything about the book I read today or about me or my wife, well she says she is I woke up this morning and my eyes were cast upon a striking beautiful woman in an even striking body wearing nice lingerie that fits like a glove I have no idea at that moment who she is, she says she s my wife but I don t remember being married I am trying to piece together my life All this is too much to muster I have been told I was in an accident I had fallen over an egg and banged my head Strange but I don t remember this, this is what she my wife tells me I need to write this in my oh so important journal otherwise I will run through the same routine again and not recollect her or the egg Oh yes that book before I forget this book has inspired me to write into this journal as the female protagonist is in same situation as me Her story is ever so gripping, its tense I am almost glued to the pages her quest is heart warming and heartbreaking I felt tears of joy and sadness on the completion of her story The story is in the first person narrative and flows in a visceral fashion They say it can be cured what we have if we piece together our past and write, I hope so The story was something fresh and diff...

    Argh What a frustrating book I want someone else I know to read it so I can discuss it with them, to see if they agree with my conclusion Sarah, you should read it and let me know what you think I really really liked this book in the beginning The concept, while not strictly novel I can recall maybe half a dozen stories where amnesia like this features prominently is utilized to great effect The mystery is initially built quite satisfactorily, and you re drawn in as a reader Fairly soon, however, the concept frays a bit and you have to suspend a little bit of disbelief to get through the book There were holes that I saw not insurmountable ones, but still distracting I saw the ending I won t ruin it coming from a mile away, only because you know with a book like this it needs a twist of some sort, and there was only one pa...

    Sometimes I get flipped around while I sleep My head ends up where my feet should be As I wake up and wave my hand in the air for the nightstand, the freak out begins Where the heck am I It only lasts a few seconds before I figure it out, but the depth of my disorientation during those few seconds is always surprising to me So, the book and I were off to a good start when, on the page one, Christine wakes up confused in a strange room Unfortunately for her, it is not as simple as seeing the room in reverse Every day she has to reacquaint herself with her husband, her house, the person in the mirror Christine has a form of amnesia wherein, after an accident, she lost the ability retain memories past a day As Christine starts keeping a journal to help her remember, she discovers some unsettling discrepancies between what her husband tells her, what her doctor knows of her history, and her own reemerging memories I bought this book at a favorite indie bookstore, Murder by the Book, where the staff is super knowledgeable and enthusiastic No matter what book I carry to the cashier, two or three people behind the counter will share their favorite aspect of the book and start rattling off other books in the genre that I have to read You don t even have to ask them T...
