If you're into psychological thrillers, Before I Go to Sleep by S J Watson is the book for you. The novel opens with a "young woman" waking up with no idea where she is. We only know what she knows...as she keeps going, we learn that she's not so young and she has no clear memory of...well...anything. At the end of the first chapter (Pt 1), we learn that she's been keeping a journal. The second part of the book is her journal entries over the last couple of weeks. We only know what she remembers to write down and she only knows what other people tell her. The writing is incredible, the characters are intriguing...so much mystery and a twist ending.
I predict that this is going to be one of the hottest books of this summer. Not only is it brilliant, fast paced and impossible to put down, it's already been sold in 32 countries and to Ridley Scott, who has picked a director for it and has scheduled production on the movie for later this year. That's damn impressive for a debut novel that is basically the result of taking one course on writing at the impressive Faber Academy.
