American Literary stage has an array of expression. It is rightly asserted by Bhongle “Almost every literary genre is rich with new notions, and new ideologies.

The book that I want to talk about is “Before I Go to Sleep” by S.J. Watson. It’s a thriller and suspense book. The author, S.J. Watson also wrote another book, which known as “Second Life”, and it was published in 2015. However, it’s not as popular as “Before I Go to Sleep”. “Before I Go to Sleep” had already been translated into 42 different kinds of languages, this definitely shows how popular this book is.
