I visited this site earlier in the month while looking for a book to read in between books for my work book club. This is my first post and I am happy to report that I really like this book! It kept me guessing and I never knew what to believe which I think was the author's intent. The ending was good, but I would like to have had closure as to what would have happened the day following. Regarding her memory loss and the story each an every day, I could easily rationalize how she would "invent" the stories based on her previous journal entries. I really thought that the doctor would have ended up being her son. Just a thought I had. Also, I really thought the doctor would have made a copy of her journal when he had it in his possession so she wouldn't have to "remember" going forward.

I am anxious to see what is chosen for June's read and will hopefully be able to discuss right along with everyone. :)

I love this book.
I love finding out details with Christine, and willing her on to find out more information, with each page I was desperate to know more. The book really threw me around, one minute thinking one thing then changing my mind the next, really felt the disorientation, so could only feel sorry for Christine through the whole book. Very satisfied with the ending and the way it came together, going through the journey with her and left the book feeling very optimistic about her future.

I really enjoyed this novel--read it in two quick sittings.

I was enthralled by the characterization of Christine, convinced that "S. J." has to be a woman, but was amazed to discover that this novel of intrigue and poignant observations of normal as well as abnormal life was written by a man; a man who, obviously, much to his credit, is totally in touch with his "feminine" side. The action is both contemplative and fast-paced while, at the same time, riddled with subtle clues as to whom "Ben" really is and what really happened to cause Christine's total memory loss. "Who did this to me?" is her persistent theme and she, through Watson, opens all the stops to find out.

While I did find the ending a bit too trite and bit more contrived that I expected as I raced through the 258 pages, I did find the author's first foray into the world of novels a stunningly contrasting, compelling read that melded the genres of mystery, intrigue, romance, and psychological terror, tinged with a bit of a historical, albeit modern times, bent.

I am looking forward to the author's next literary effort.

Just finished it.

Good read. Nice twist near the end. Would have like a less ambiguous ending...more closure. 7/10
