Publisher's Summary

"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.

    "Excellent suspense story"

    Loved this book. Nice twist. Kept me guessing. The narrator was good but I felt she made the character sound far too whiny and melodramatic at times. It wasn't bad enough to stop listening though.

    Story
    "Holds you until the last"

    This is a great book, I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for a good stand alone read. This is a getaway book, you will want to devour it on a weekend away. The characters are multifaceted, the story is full of twists and turns and you don't know where you will end up until the very last.

    Story
    "Disappointing"

    I feel like the only real thing that happened was in the last two chapters. The whole concept is good, but overall I was disappointed and almost frustrated. And the reviews built it up. I thought it would have been way better.

    "Too repetitive but well written"

    The novel by its subject required a lot of repetition as Chrissy learns about her life anew each day. It was a slowly developed story that could have moved a bit faster. However, the author does an excellent job of putting you in Chrissy's place. Well written and read.

    Story
    "Poor"

    Probably one of the most boring and predictable books I have ever read. Watson writes well, but the story is bland and very repetitive. I could piece together a more exciting book about the amnesia I get after a Friday night of going out.

    Story
    "Thoroughly Engaging for the first 2/3"
    What would have made Before I Go to Sleep better?

    This book was thoroughly engaging until the ending. It's like the author had to make a deadline and just finished it very predictably.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am not sure yet.


    What does Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Orlagh Cassidy was excellent. She brought the right amount of emotion to the characters.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This book kept me on the edge of my seat until I fell off from the predictable, disappointing ending.

    "good story, disliked narration"

    story was a bit predictable but enjoyable. I found the narrator annoying, particularly when voicing the main character Christine...she took on a whiny, overdramatic tone that she didn't use with other characters and I felt it really distracted me from the story.

    Story
    "How is this rated so high?"

    I did not find this captivating, rather predictable actually. A bit boring, the same thing over and over, due to the nature of the story, where the character wakes up every day having lost her memory. Waste of time
