The Sleepwalker

The Sleepwalker: A Novel - Chris Bohjalian

Chris Bohjalian is one of those authors that I can rely on to give me a story that will draw me in and at some point leave me shocked and surprised. This book was no exception. The disappearance of Annalee Ahlberg had me guessing and wondering throughout the book.


Readers follow Annalee's daughter, Lianna, as she and her family struggle with Annalee's disappearance. Annalee had previously been prone to sleepwalking when her husband was away and they fear that her sleepwalking has lead her to danger.


At first I did like Lianna but as she continued to make questionable decisions throughout the less I started to like her. I was very suspicious of her relationship with Gavin and never really approved of it.


The plot seemed to drag a bit in the middle but the surprise at the end made up for that. I spent most of the book trying to figure out what happened and I am happy to say that I didn't figure it out.
