The man in bed, rushes into the bathroom and begins to explain. Christine has had an accident, many years ago, leaving her with no memory and no ability to fabricate new ones. Every night when she falls into a deep sleep, her memory resets and she is left with no recollection of the previous day. The man is her husband, Ben, and every day he has to reintroduce his wife to their life.
After Ben goes to work, she receives a phone call from a man, Dr. Nash, who is a psychologist and neuroscientist, who says that they've been working together to try and restore her memory. When she doesn't believe him, he tells her to go look in the shoebox hidden in the back of her closet. In it, she finds a journal, written by herself, documenting the past few weeks. It's her history... the only history she knows... the only truth she has. Just then something catches her eye. She has written on the first page of the journal in large capital letters: DON'T TRUST BEN.
This book is FAN-Tastic. This is definitely the best book I've read all year. It is heart-wrenching and confusing. You have to travel with Christine and under her circumstances to find out the truth of what has happened all those years ago. You have to work with her to find out if she really shouldn't trust Ben, her husband of twenty-something years, or if she's just confused.
While reading this, I began to feel like I was the one becoming paranoid. I started thinking that maybe I had missed something... maybe I was confused. And as the end approaches you will not be able to breathe! I was literally holding my breath, and I'd have to put the book down to just say "Ahhhh" for a minute. You know it's a good book when you do that! Such a good read. Suspenseful, thrilling and mysterious.
