Before I Go to Sleep. Film Tie-In

A Novel

(2)

The New York Times bestseller, now available in paperback—the disturbing psychological thriller—reminiscent of Shutter Island and Memento—in which an amnesiac desperately tries to uncover the truth about who she is and who she can trust, is now available in a special edition to tie-in with the release of the feature film starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth.

The sensational New York Times bestseller—now a major motion picture starring Academy Award-winners Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth.

“As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I am 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.

„A somewhat unusual diary... “

Fabian Jacob, Thalia-Buchhandlung Soest

You wake up. You don't know who you are. You don't know where you are. You find an unknown man lying next to you in bed. He claims to be your husband. You get through the day and go to bed, certain that you'll remember all of this tomorrow. You certainly will.
But dawn comes, you wake up and find yourself in exactly the same situation as the day before. Except - you just don't remember what happened yesterday, or the day before that, or the day before that.
That's what Christine Lucas has to go through, day after day after day. So she starts writing her experiences down, hoping that - at some point - she'll finally remember. But the further she gets, the more horrifying her notes become. Who is she really? And what happened?
An extraordinarily thrilling novel, which kept me up all night!

Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love - all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story. Welcome to Christine's life. ‘Before I got to sleep‘ ist ein unheimlich faszinierendes Debut, das zugleich fesselnd und erschreckend ist! Von Beginn an hat S J Watson einen Spannungsbogen geschaffen, der den Leser nicht mehr los lässt! Das Buch ist in der Originalsprache, also auf Englisch. Gerade dadurch kam die besondere Stimmung und Spannung des Buches sehr gut zum Vorschein. Manchmal geht ja leider bei dem Übersetzen die Stimmung eines Buches verloren… Christines Situation ist mit viel Einfühlungsvermögen und Klarheit dargestellt, ich hatte nicht das Gefühl, dass es überspitzt oder ohne Kenntnisse der Situation geschildert wurde. Der Sprachstil ist sehr direkt und deutlich, das Sprachniveau ist angemessen, so dass man den Inhalt super versteht! Auch der Plot gefällt mir sehr gut, toll war, dass der Leser nicht mehr erfährt als Christine und daher nicht zu weit im Geschehen vorweg denken kann. Alles in Allem ist dieses Buch sicher kein Thriller, wie man ihn kennt; zum Ende der Handlung nimmt die Spannung jedoch rasant zu und entwickelt zu einem überraschenden, doch schlüssigen und stimmigen Schluss.
