"As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I'm still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me...."
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.

The plot was not too bad but the whole story was weak. This could have been a 3 or 4 hour book but it stretched way too long. Not enough substance to keep it going. Really depressing and repetitive. I would not recommend this book.
Great book, absorbing story , couldn't stop listening to find out what happens. Recommended for anyone wanting a really absorbing book.
Compelling story..riveting suspense throughout. Brilliant tour de force that Mr. Watson created such a convincing female persona as Christine to bring us through this cerebral thriller.
Yes actually I would. The narrator, Orlagh Cassidy is really fantastic. She made the story so much more mysterious. I've never thought of this until after I finished this book, but a good narrator who obviously knows the story can really lead you on with their voice. I could not "put my earbuds" down.
I don't want to give it away here so I'll just say that I liked Christine best.
Everything. The mystery in her voice was excellent. She did not give anything away and made me wonder the entire time what was really going on. I loved her performance and am now looking for other books narrated by her.
Keeps you wondering!
An effective thriller told from the viewpoint of an amnesia victim. I had read stories with amnesia victims before, but they were usually told from 3rd person or other characters' viewpoint, with the mystery hinging on whether the amnesia was real. In this story the main character is an amnesiac who forgets everything while she sleeps. She keeps having to rediscover herself everday. The reader in effect becomes her memory putting together the clues she keeps forgetting. I saw the movie version which stayed close to the book, but I renjoyed the book more.
Say something about yourself!
Taut thriller will a few twist and turns. Well narrated. A bit of a stretch, but worth the credit.
