Before I Go to Sleep

This was such a difficult book to read!  I squirmed, my heart fluttered, I couldn't breathe at times.  That's how effective it is.

Christine has a rare form of amnesia.  She wakes up every morning not knowing anything.  And we wake up with her.  We see her world through her eyes.  Who is she? Who can she trust?  There is a man in bed with her.  Who is he?  Does she have friends?  Does she have children? 

Something doesn't feel right to Christine.  Her doctor suggests she keep a journal and he calls her every morning to remind her of it so she can read about her life.  But, there is a message on the first page warning her not to trust her husband.  Why?  What has happened?  How did she lose her memory?

We see Christine's life through the fog of her brain.  We are her.  We have to finish this book in one gulp or we won't sleep.
