If I Die Before I Wake - Emily Koch

If I Die Before I WakeIf I Die Before I Wake by Emily Koch
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A cleverly written psychological thriller written from the POV of a victim who everybody thinks is in a coma. The twist is he can actually still hear, feel and think. He’s trapped inside his own body while trying to figure out who tried to kill him.

I loved that it was well-written and unique, I liked the protagonist’s voice, and the tagline was so intriguing I absolutely had to read this novel. Koch did a great job of not just telling the story through flashbacks, which was really impressive, although it also meant that a lot of the story sort of dragged slowly along. I found myself skimming large chunks because nothing was actually happening.

An intriguing idea and very well written. A good summer read on the beach.
