I absolutely loved this book. The concept was really neat -- at first, I thought it was sort of a take on the plot of "Memento" but ultimately I decided it was so much more. I kept thinking I had the plot all figured out, and ultimately it surprised me. I found the concept throughout to be surprisingly believable -- my "suspended disbelief" was thoroughly suspended. Without giving anything away, I found it to be a really interesting take on the nature of memory and what makes us who we are.
Loved every second of this story. It had a unique story line, and a difficult premise to base a novel, yet Watson develops an intriguing story that kept me hanging on to every word.
Ugh. I started this audiobook right after "The Girl on the Train" which was fabulous. "Before I Go to Sleep" was recommended to me because it is similar in the sense that it is a thriller with a British unreliable narrator. However, this is where the similarities end. I have to say, this book really annoyed me. Really, really annoyed me. About 1/3 in I wanted to return it and salvage my beloved credit, but I forced myself to go on. The first 1/2 of the book is too repetitive (which is part of the story, but lagged). It honestly wasn't very suspenseful. Even though I didn't guess the end at all, I actually didn't care by the time I reached it. Also, the narrator does this "fretful" thing, I can't quite describe it, but it is annoying. I suppose I may have disliked it less if I hadn't listened to it right after TGOTT.
I really enjoyed this book. I didn't predict the end where I read a review of someone who had but I must not be that sharp. Although I did have questions that kept me guessing I didn't try to figure out the end before I was told. Liked the set up and felt it was the right length. Highly recommend
I really enjoyed this book. The story is awesome. It was well told in my opinion. I look forward to seeing the movie although they are never as good as the book.
Loved this book! Great mystery with interesting twist and turns. I could not stop listening and did not want the story to end! Narrator did a wonderful job.
