"Before I Wake" is the debut novel by Robert J. Wiersema - and a book which I believe is very successful in its endeavors to tackle some difficult and controversial subject matter in a unique and interesting way. Typically, books that focus on this area tend to be wishy-washy tear-jerkers which hold my attention for no more than five minutes. However, this book was different because it approached the subject matter from a different perspective - and I found it to be a page turner as I was eager to get to the conclusion and some form of resolution. I purchased this book from ibooks for £6.99. The story starts when 3 year old Sherry Barrett is ... Read the complete review

I read 'Before I wake' a month or so ago now yet still find myself thinking about it. I cant decide wether it haunted me, disturbed me or touched me.

Every five minutes spare I picked up this book and five minutes was soon half an hour and I basically lost a day! Written over 310 pages, the book is in 9 parts. Commencing in April 1996 it spans a tragic year in the life of the Barrets. Each chapter is just entitled as the name of a character and ... Read the complete review
