I've heard so much about this book that I was expecting to hate it. I knew it was about a woman who wakes up the every day not knowing who she is or where she is. Some kind of amnesiac condition causes her to forget the recent past. I really didn't think that this would make a good read for me - I guess it just sounded too gimmicky to be enjoyable.

So, surprise, I really enjoyed the book.... The gimmick turned out to be something that the author turned to their advantage and made it work for me and the inherent unreliability of the narrator made for a pretty good thriller like read.
