Before I go to sleep - SJ Watson

Before I Go to Sleep
As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I'm still a child, thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me...

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.
Jag har sett filmatiseringen av den här och jag tyckte att den var underbar. Vanligtvis filmar jag och läser det första kapitlet men den här gången kommer ni att få läsa det själva här;
"The bedroom is strange. Unfamiliar. I don't know where I am, how I came to be here. I don't know how I'm going to get home.
I have spent the night here. I was woke by a woman's voice- at first I thought she was in bed with me, but then realized she was reading the news and I was hearing a radio alarm - and when I opened my eyes I found myself here. In this room I don't recognize.
My eyes adjust and I look around in the near dar. A dressing  gown hangs off he back of the wardrobe door - suitable for a woman, but someone much older than I am - and some dark-coloured trousers are folded neatly over the back of a chair at the dressing table, but I can't make out little else. The alarm clock looks complicated, but I find a button and manage to silence it.
It is then I hear a juddering intake of breath behind me and realize I am not alone, I turn round. I see an expanse of skin and dark hair, flecked with white. A man. He has his left arm outside the covers and there is a gold band on the third finger of the hand. I supress a groan. So this one is not only old and grey, I think, but also married. Not only have I screwed a married man, but I have done so on what I am guessing is his home, in the bed he must usually share with his wife. I lie back to gather myself. I ought to be ashamed."
