Hoje eu escrevo para contar sobre o nosso Book Club. Um grupo de 11 meninas brasileiras, ratas de biblioteca, aqui da minha vizinhanca resolveram ler o mesmo livro e se juntarem pra discuti-lo. Como ja mencionei antes, eu moro no estado de Ohio, na area de Cleveland, numa cidadezinha chamada Shaker Hts.
Aqui ha um rio chamado Cuyahoga River, que divide a area em East e West. Bom eu moro no East. e estamos iniciando o Primeiro Clube do Livro do Eastside de Cleveland.
O nosso primeiro encontro sera no final de Agosto e o Livro escolhido por Eveline, a nossa anfitria,
foi Before I Go to Sleep do britanico S. J. Watson.
Before I Go to Sleep is the first novel by S. J. Watson published in Spring 2011. It became both a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller and has been translated into over 30 languages, and has become a bestseller in France, Canada, Bulgaria and the Netherlands. It reached number 7 on the US bestseller list, the highest position for a debut novel by a British author since J. K. Rowling. The New York Times described the author as an "out-of-nowhere literary sensation". He wrote the novel between shifts whilst working as a National Health Service (NHS) audiologist.
The novel is a psychological thriller about a woman suffering from anterograde amnesia.She wakes every day with no knowledge of who she is and the novel follows her as she tries to reconstruct her memories from a journal she has been keeping. She learns that she has been seeing a doctor who is helping her to recover her memory, that her name is Christine Lucas, that she is 47 years old and married and has a son. As her journal grows it casts doubts on the truth behind this knowledge and sets her on a terrifying journey of discovery.
Confesso que ainda estou no inicio da leitura, mas ja dei uma googada basica pra ver se vou gostar do livro e estou adorando. Aqui estao alguns quotes do livro que encontrei:
