Memories define us.
So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep?
Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love – all forgotten overnight.
And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story.
Welcome to Christine’s life.
The story is about a woman, Christine, who suffers with amnesia. Her memory can remember things that have happened during the day for the full day until she sleeps, and the next day starts over again.
Christine lives with her husband Ben, who tries to help her remember everyday who she is by leaving small reminders around the house for her.
There is also another man in her life who phones her everyday to help her as well, Dr Nash. He fills in the gaps where her husband hasn’t been able to do so.
Dr Nash insists that she keeps a journal, so she can keep track of what has been happening day to day, to try and help her with her amnesia, which she ends up doing and we see what she has written in the journal.
As the story goes on we find out more about Christine’s life, past and how she feels about the whole situation.
Further on we notice she is starting to remember certain bits of information without her journal from the previous days, her husband starts to act a little strange and starts to question why.
Towards the end of the story, there is a turn around and you start to find out some truths that Christine hasn’t been told off and finds out that her life is in danger.
I feel like I do want to say more with what has been roughly going on in the story but I feel that if I do I may spoil it for some, so I will just leave it at that.
For me I really felt for Christine, towards the end of the book I even started to cry which is something I have never done with the books I have read over the couple of years.
This book is an amazing read and I do encourage people to read it, it is something I didn’t really think I would enjoy and I thoroughly did.
