France, Canada, Bulgaria and the Netherlands. She wakes up every day with no knowledge of who she is and the novel follows her as she tries to reconstruct her memories from a journal she has been keeping. She learns that she has been seeing a doctor who is helping her to recover her memory, that her name is Christine Lucas, that she is 47 years before i go to sleep pdf download and married and has a son.

As her journal grows it casts doubts on the truth behind this knowledge as she determines to discover who she really is. The structure is so dazzling it almost distracts you from the quality of the writing. No question, this is a very literary thriller. Forget whizz-bang futurism: it proceeds from ordinary life in tiny, terrifying steps, and is all the better for it. Watson’s take on the material is clever, convincing and moreish.

Christine’s life is mundane, but filled with tantalising possibilities: the early chapters fly by as you wonder exactly who to trust. The fun comes from spotting the plot holes that Watson later exploits for all they’re worth. But these are minor gripes. Watson scrupulously plays fair as he unpicks the tangled web surrounding our heroine, until the denouement. It was a cheat I couldn’t forgive or forget. English Translation: Do you know me?
