BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP; Summer’s Hottest

If you’ve been reading EarlyWord, you’ve heard plenty about S.J. Watson’s debut psychological thriller, Before I Go To Sleep.

The Wall Street Journal has now caught on to it, calling it “one of the summer’s hottest prospects.” As the article notes, Ridley Scott recently purchased the film rights.

Watson, who lives in the UK, will make one of his few US appearances at the ALTAF Mystery and Horror program on Sunday, June 26, 10:30 to noon during ALA.

    I read this last weekend on my Kindle – I found myself standing at the stove, cooking AND reading – it was that hard to put down, and yes you can do that with a Kindle. Wondering about the movie, since if a book really knocks me out, the movie usually disappoints. We’ll see.

    Before I go to Sleep is a well-written page-turner. I can’t imagine waking up each morning and have no memory of my life or those who are important to me. You will not want to go to sleep until you have finished Watson’s wonderful debut.

    I read a pre-pub of this a couple weeks ago. It WAS hard to put down…it was that good.
