Memories define us.
So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep?
Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love–all forgotten overnight.
And the one person you trust may be telling you only half the story.
Welcome to Christine’s life.
Wow … what a story. Once of the few that I have read cover to cover in a day and late into the night. Whilst I had seen many people praise this book, I hadn’t actually read anyone’s review of it so had no idea what to expect so when i friend at work lent it to me at work and said “you’ve got to read it” I took it. I’m so glad I did. Brilliantly put together, creepy, thought-provoking and totally unexpected.
I wondered at the start how someone who only remembers things whilst awake and then the memory put back to zero when she woke the next day could be explained but SJ Watson does so in such a clever and believable way… obviously I won’t be giving anything away.
What I will say about this book is that it’s not a light easy to read sunday afternoon type book .. this is the sort of book that will grab you and not let go until the final chapter. It has more twists and turns than a corkscrew ride at Alton Towers but in such a way you just don’t see them coming – guess you are on the ride backwards!!
If like me you try to shy away from the books that have the huge “hype” may I suggest you give this a try – You won’t regret it I promise! One word of warning - my suggestion is not to read it late at night on your own just before you try to go to sleep!!!
Fantastic work and certainly an Author I would look out for again. If you loved Sister by Rosamund Lupton, you’ll love this too.
