How Scary Is 'Before I Wake'? The Netflix Horror Movie Is One Long Nightmare
This book takes place in Victoria BC which made it fun to read as I knew many of the places mentioned in the book. The story has a good against evil supernatural storyline. I enjoyed this book. Enjoyed this book and would think anyone who likes Jodie Picoult would enjoy it as well. Oct 29, Leire Killough rated it liked it. Before I Wake is a book about a family, dealing with the aftermath of a tragic accident that left a young girl comatose.
The book was good enough , with well-written characters and an intriguing plot that kept me wondering and turning pages. If I ever want to read about a family dealing with hard situations and learning to love one another again, this will genuinely be my go-to book. I felt for every single character, and I loved how the author went about jumping from perspective to perspective.
D Before I Wake is a book about a family, dealing with the aftermath of a tragic accident that left a young girl comatose. Despite how it could seem jarring to some, I found it rather fluid. It wasn't difficult for me to tell apart different characters, either; each one had their own voice that was unique in its own way.
But one thing ruined the story for me. The ending. I found the conclusion to be extremely unsatisfying. I mean, it's not like it didn't make sense , and the resolution did technically tie off the book well enough, but It almost felt like the author hit their max word limit and had to wrap up the story as quickly as possible. I had such high hopes and excitement, and I felt a little let down. The last few pages of the book weren't bad enough to say the same about the whole book, however! I would be lying if I said I didn't find a whole bunch of enjoyment in reading it.
The characters were great! The ending just wasn't for me. I passed my copy along to my cousin to read. Maybe she'll find the ending to be more satisfying than I did. Jul 18, Mapleleaf rated it really liked it Recommended to Mapleleaf by: Sister-in-law. Three-year old Sherry Barrett is in life support after being hit by a truck driver as she and her mother crossed a six-lane road in Victoria, BC. When the doctor reveals that Sherry will not wake up from her coma, they decide to let her go.
The first of miracles happen - she does not wake but begins breathing on her own. When she is stable enough to come home, her parents hire a caregiver to help the mother but her parents' marriage falls apart as the husband's indiscretion is uncovered. The sec Three-year old Sherry Barrett is in life support after being hit by a truck driver as she and her mother crossed a six-lane road in Victoria, BC. The second miracle happens quietly as the caregiver realizes that her arthritis, the reason she retired from nursing, has completely disappeared.
Immediately, she urges her dying sister to visit her at Sherry's house. After she is healed, the sister brings a friend who has been given mere weeks to live. Cured of her cancer, the friend breaks her story to the newspaper which spread the word internationally.
Overnight, there were reporters, TV cameras, pilgrimages eager to be healed as well as religious protestors. Her mother Karen and father Simon deal with the deluge and in the process, rediscover each other. Tim became his mentor. During the course of understanding his semi-existence, he saved the Barretts and their house from being torched. In the end, Sherry wakes up, heals and forgives Henry before slipping to the next world in everlasting sleep.
The storyline kept me riveted and unable to put the book down although I can see many topics that were not fully developed, explained or unbelievable. One was the calmness of Karen when she welcomed Mary into her house to share a meal as they discussed Simon. Second is the quick acceptance by Mary of Simon's departure from their relationship.
Third is Judas', aka Father Peter, betrayal of Jesus that may not be familiar to most people. And what is the role of Ahasuerus in the story? There were other things that I had to ignore to be able to enjoy the book. Good but not highly recommended. I picked up this book at a charity book sale, not knowing anything about the author or the book. It turns out that this is a Canadian author's debut novel, and he completely blew me away!
The story starts off in April , it is surrounds the Barrett family. Simon and Karen tried for years to get pregnant. Their dream came true when Sherry was born, but tragedy struck the family one day when Karen was going for a walk with Sherry who was three years old at the time. As they crossed the street at I picked up this book at a charity book sale, not knowing anything about the author or the book. As they crossed the street at a crosswalk, the driver of a truck didn't see Sherry until it was too late.
He swerved to try to go around her, but he struck her. She had internal injuries and severe trauma to her head, and she survived the surgery but was in a coma and on a respirator.

Karen and Simon make the impossible decision to turn off the respirator because the doctor said she was brain dead, but Sherry manages to successfully breathe on her own although still remains in a coma. They make arrangements for homecare and take Sherry home. The relationship between Simon and Karen falls apart. He actually had been having an affair with a younger colleague even before the accident, and Simon moves out of their home and in with his new lover.
Sherry's homecare attendant notices one day that she no longer has any pain in her hands, and she marvels at the change. She has no idea what took away her pain, but she believes that somehow Sherry healed her. She tells her sister, who has terminal cancer, and invites her to come visit Sherry. She, too, is miraculously healed and the cancer goes into remission. News spreads of Sherry's ability, and the Barrett family is flooded with requests to see Sherry to be healed.
Others think that she is an abomination and that it is the devil's work because only God can heal. This book just absolutely tore my heart out! As a mom, my heart broke for Sherry. I was pissed off at how selfish Simon was, and how he left his family when they needed him the most. Karen truly had the heart of a saint, and she forgave Simon again and again and I'm not sure that I would have been so forgiving! This wasn't just the story of one family's tragedy, but also of good versus evil with the paramount feeling of hope.
I have already requested more of his books from the library. Of course, his writing is always mentioned as part of his introduction, so I finally looked into this book and am very glad I did! I'll have to give his other books a serious look now, too! What an interesting premise. It's a spiritual fantasy, of sorts. Sherry, a three-year old girl, is hit in a cross-walk, while crossing a major street with her mother. Her mother recovers quickly, but Sherry remains in a coma, in spite of having had the "plug pulled". She was not expected to survive. Now that she's been transferred to her parents home, some seemingly miraculous things start to happen and there's reason to believe that Sherry is the root of the miracles.
If you're looking for a completely plausible, totally believable read, stay away from this one. If you're interested in an interesting view of spirituality, and want to read a really well-written story, I highly recommend this book! Aug 05, Belle rated it really liked it. A memorable read for sure. It's now am, which is a testament to how gripping the book was, but the downside means my brain is currently a confused puddle. The writing style was both down to earth and descriptively poetic, and I'm still in awe of how the characters besides Tim and Father Peter, perhaps were very believable.
I was also pleased by how, on the whole, they all decided to act maturely and take the high road, when there were abundant opportunities for them to be immature idiots a A memorable read for sure. I was also pleased by how, on the whole, they all decided to act maturely and take the high road, when there were abundant opportunities for them to be immature idiots and annoy me so much I abandoned the book forever.
Some elements, however, were a bit forced, as was the dramatic ending, slightly. However, overall I really enjoyed reading this! Sorry for the rambling - goodnight!

In the meantime without Karen kno Plot Summary Hand in hand, Karen Barrett and her three-year-old daughter Sherry Barrett walk along a cross walk on their venture home after a tenuous shopping trip. In the meantime without Karen knowing, her lawyer husband, Simon cheats on her behind her back with his secretary Mary. Simon and Karen make the decision to take Sherry off life support and she dies.

At the same time they have to face unnatural criticism from the Catholic Church. Meanwhile, Henry Danton, the man who was driving the truck attempts to kill himself by jumping off a bridge but miraculously gets saved by a supernatural force. He ventures into a library and finds council from some semi-human people. Karen and Simon fall back in love, but Sherry still remains in a coma. Henry feels compelled to visit Sherry. When the two finally come into contact, Sherry wakes up and heals Henry.
Sherry and her happy mother embrace. Sherry then collapses and dies. Personal Response I would rate this book a 7. The initial introduction to the book struck me hoping there would be a very eerie supernatural twist. I got that supernatural component but was nowhere near eerie. You could know their every thought of situations in the books because of how the author let each character get a chapter. I liked Simon and his scandalous romance with Mary and how Karen kept pulling him back unintentionally which ultimately led to them coming back together.
I wish Sherry could of shown some physical changes while she was in her coma to add excitement, but I guess the ending would not be as dramatic. I wished the author could has put more detail in his personality changes throughout the story so the reader does not need to assume right away he will make a change.
