Review: Before I Go To Sleep

Before I Go To Sleep
Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I discovered that there are a lot of book lovers at my workplace; so I decided to create a book club which will meet every two months. The first book we selected is "Before I Go To Sleep".

This was a very quick read. I was concerned that it would be something similar to "50 First Dates" and I was glad that it was not. Then I was wondering how the author would be able to keep the readers interested, considering that the main character has no recollection of the previous days or weeks or months or years as a matter of a fact. S.J. Watson did a "tour de force" and kept me reading to know what will happen in the next page. I developed several theories as I was reading and although some proved themselves correct; some were wrong and I was surprise by the story outcome. Very clever!

The only disappointment was that there are loose ends in the story and unanswered questions. I will have to keep an eye for a Q&A with the author so I can ask some questions to clarify these unknown facts.

I do recommend the book. It is a great and fast read. I decided not to go see the movie because the book was good enough and movies have a way to spoil a good thing. :)
