S. J. Watson

What a disturbing sensational debut. A great book for discussion at your book club.

I would recommend that you do not have anything planned that you need to do, for when a writer makes you pay attention to detail for clues are in-itself grounds for a great page-turner read. 

If you can stand the thrill & chill, this is your read.  The story is a psychological thriller about a woman suffering from anterograde amnesia.

She wakes up every day with no knowledge of who she is and she tries to reconstruct her memories from a journal she's been keeping. She learns her name is Christine Lucas and she is a married 40 year old mother of a son. She's been seeing a doctor who is helping her to recover her memory and as the story unfolds this journal starts to cast doubts (truth?) about this knowledge she reads everyday.

She has a great inner strength to find out the truth behind this madness and she does. One thing for sure, don't forget your loved ones. Or else.

I most recommend folks  ~ wow what a delicious read!
