“Quite simply the best debut novel I've ever read.” (Tess Gerritsen)
“Brilliant in its pacing, profound in its central question, suspenseful on every page - and satisfying in its thriller ending.” (Anita Shreve)
“A deft, perceptive exploration of a fascinating neurological condition, and a cracking good thriller.” (Lionel Shriver)
“A terrific first novel - well-written, genuinely unsettling and psychologically very plausible. Thrillers seldom come much better than this. Loved it, read it in one.” (Joanne Harris)
“An exceptional thriller. It left my nerves jangling for hours after I finished the last page.” (Dennis Lehane)
“So high-concept, so ambitious and so structurally brilliant. It's so rare to read a thriller that's perfect in every detail, but this one definitely qualifies!” (Sophie Hannah)
“A deeply unsettling debut that asks the most terrifying question - what do you have left when you lose yourself?” (Val McDermid)
“A truly amazing debut. The central character, Christine, is beautifully drawn. It's hard to imagine a more compelling, believable and sympathetic portrayal of a damaged human being. I loved it from start to finish.” (Mo Hayder)

"Before I go to sleep"
Its a really good book I enjoyed it from start to finish
I liked all the characters
It was read very well
A woman with no memory
I would recommend this book.
There are so many twists to it
I listened to this in just 2 sessions. Gripping from start to finish. highly recommended
A definite can't put down/ stop listening to book, gripped from the beginning. Listening to it evolve, shouting at it at times, the characters are brilliant And well written. Really makes you think!
I listened to this book mainly while painting in my house. It made a boring job quite enjoyable. The story is quite clever but it's very nature made it repetitive in parts! The narrator really made this book work for me as she has such a soothing but not boring voice, she bought the character alive for me. Slight criticism in that the story is a tad too long. Would recommend especially as this is a new author.
"Entertaining enthralling, stand-out debut novel"
Observing the way that the lead character interacts with people and takes time to re-establish her relationship with them, particularly the sections where she meets up with Dr Nash
The conversation towards the end where Christine and her husband talk, and they have the in depth conversation regarding what happened to Christine.
Bearing in mind the lead character is a female, having a female narrate a book that is written from a primary perspective makes it more in depth a realistic that if it had been written by a man
What will you remember tomorrow
An excellent debut novel by S.J. Watson. Have just ordered his latest one on my kindle
"A fascinating thriller"
I might, as the story is interesting and well written, although a great part of the enjoyment of this book is based on the suspense that knowing the end solution would remove.
I like the protagonist, and the story's slowly building suspense.
The protagonist's amnesia give the story and original angle and makes it at the same time a psychological thriller and a study of the human mind.
Enjoyable read G h h v f g h ur b b h h h h g x c c
Many hours spent listening when I should have been asleep! Couldn't stop.
Gripping, unpredictable storyline, well written, a superb 'listen'
Great story which absorbed me. I originally read book on kindle and decided to download this Audible version. Very enjoyable and brilliant first novel for the author. Hope he writes more books.
