"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.

I purchased this book because I saw it on a list of "41 most thrilling books you'll ever read" or something like that. Its a good, interesting story but not thrilling. the performance was just OK but it didn't detract from the story too much. Definitely worth a read just don't expect to be hanging on the edge of your seat.
Christine is in a pickle. Every day she wakes up a new person in bed with somebody she doesn't know. She sees in the mirror a middle aged woman when the last thing she can remember she was in her 20s. The ride through this book to finding out what happened to her was giddy, like riding a roller coaster at Six Flags. Thank you for the enjoyment
Great book. It was a bit tedious at the beginning but towards the end it really picked up pace and I couldn't put it down. Definitely recommend it.
I loved this book. Enough said. But there was one spot where the author made a major mistake (in my opinion). He is trying to explain that she is the same person with the same flesh, blood, DNA...this narrative is done through her mind so she explains DNA. Well, she lost her memory in the late 80s (86 I think) but somehow she knew what DNA is. Same goes for her knowledge of computers and her ease of use with cellphones. I'm being nitpicky but it was just something that made me roll my eyes.
It took all of my willpower to finish this book. The only thing that kept me going was the thought that I might miss something that would make the book great. However I was mistaken. The ending was bad! Just like the rest of the book. One piece of advice if you're considering this book - " Don't"
She was perfect from beginning to end. The voices of the characters were consistent. Great performance.
I am not the one to write reviews, but if it helps someone, then I am glad that I took the time. This book is all about the every day life of a woman with amneisia, so yes, it may seem dragged out at times... but I still enjoyed it very much. After I finished, I wanted more. Over all great book and wonderful performance by the reader. It was worth the three days and 16 bucks!
