Once I had read the first page of this book I had a very hard time putting it down. I was immediately drawn in by the characters; their thoughts, their stories, their plights. The magic of Before I Wake lies not only in masterfully drawn characters and plot, but also in the author’s ability to create seamless transitions among a handful of narrators. Understanding each character so deeply gives the reader a 360 degree view of the story and makes for a book that you will want to read in one sitting.

Questions raised by Wiersema in this novel show an insight into what it means to be human; what it means to ask questions to which there are no certain answers, to long for things we cannot have, to look for meaning in tragedy and hope in heartache.

I wanted to read some great books by Canadian authors and was recommended this book. This book had me from the start. I can honestly say that if the book is not something that gets me from the beginning then it will collect alot of dust. I loved this book and the way that the story unfolded. When the miracles started happening, I was sure that a great miracle was to occur at the end. The ending - which I will not spoil for others - brought tears to my eyes. Thank you Mr. Weirsema for a great read and now onto the Bedtime Story which I am half way through!

I was haunted by this book from the first 2 pages. The gripping way the author writes about the accident brought me to tears.
It was a very interesting book and I loved the way Wiersema told the story from everyone's perspective.
I would recommend this to anyone. My hubby (NOT a reader) is reading it now after the way I talked about it!
