Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson
Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson
I really wanted to enjoy this book - the whole idea of repeated memory loss after every deep sleep intrigued me and - clearly, `something else was going on'.

The thing is, I did `kind of' enjoy this book - sort of - but found myself a bit disappointed and also, oddly, a little embarrassed by the writing.

TeckNetŪ iPad 2 Advance Multi-Function Leather Cas&hellip by TeckNet
