The Book Review

One of the best recently-written literary thrillers, Before I Go to Sleep by S J Watson deserves to be the blockbusters that it is.


Thoroughly convincing characters in this well-constructed, highly suspenseful, plot lead the reader through the drifting condition of a fascinating neurological state at which a debilitating illness impacts Cristine.

Imagine knowing that every night your memories will be wiped away before you wake up.

That’s Christine’s fate, whose already confused inner world is twisted by a terrifying discovery that triggers a haunting and captivating sequence of events and unwinds a complicated, compellingly and hypnotic story.


Rendered with brilliant narrative and chilling intimacy, this mesmerizing and skillfully written novel, until we can no more, keeps us reading up late trying to find out what will Christine do to reach an outcome no one could ever predict.



This intriguingly fresh look at an amnesia-focused psychological thriller brings us a frenzied and unexpected climax that will haunt readers long after reading its last page, only leaving jangling nerves and jumpy memories.


Recommended for Adults, Teenagers, and Mature Kids.
