Before I Go to Sleep

From Caryn Eve Murray
author: Watson, S.J.
 Before I Go to Sleep
 This is a debut novel about memory loss that, perhaps ironically, turns out to be unforgettable. The protagonist, herself a debut novelist, suffers amnesia that permits her to remember her activities throughout the day but the slate is wiped clean each morning when she awakens. Her paranoia, both real and imagined, coupled with her very real sense of not knowing the details of her own life and loss set the stage for what is more psychological thriller than sentimental look at one woman’s lack of nostalgia. The true, violent circumstances of her lost memory are ultimately what redeem her, but not before the reader gets unsettled too, in some effective twists and turns.
