Before I Go To Sleep - S.J.Watson The premise is interesting and I found the first 50 pages of this book entertaining. After that it was too repetitive (I know that she has to be reminded of stuff, but the reader doesn't), conflicting (she comments that reading the journal is like reading a novel and she has no emotional attachment to the text and then she gets hysterical about Adam being dead), and too easy to predict (around about the middle of the journal I got suspicious that Ben was not her real husband and as soon as they left for the trip I figured they were headed to Brighton).

I think it would make an okay action flick, where the repetition can be toned down and the flashes would keep the viewer interested; but as a novel it was just quick and meaningless.
