It was a great audio book. If I were the type to read a book twice, I guess I would listen to this again.
My favorite character was Alice, however all the main characters had damaged souls and sparked interest. I liked Franny, the "grandmother" and Elizabeth was complex and interesting.
There were many great scenes. I would say my favorite was when Alice went to console Elizabeth. Elizabeth was going nuts and Alice pulled her back into focus.
I related to it but it was mostly entertaining.
I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.
I did not read the print version so I am unable to compare.
I think when Alice's memories came flooding back to her… I could barely imagine what that would be like.
I think if I could have, I would have read this book in one sitting… it grabbed me from the beginning and didn't let go.
I was very disappointed in the ending which was contained in a post script type section.I will not ruin the story for readers. However, I loved the book up until the end section, at which point I was upset and frustrated with the choices made by the protagonists. That is all I will say.
This is the second book by Moriarty that I have read (see "The Husband's Secret") and I have really enjoyed both books. Well developed characters, good story, good narration. Time flies when I'm listening! Audible - notify me when she writes again!!
Easy, smooth, riveting.
The characters, the narration, the light suspense, the perspective of 10 years.
I loved them all.
Both. It was both poignant and funny, real and realistic.
Well done! One of my favorite reads/listens ever. The story moves right along but is thoughtful without being too much. The characters are very real and in situations that stretch endurance. Sort of time travel without the magic. I loved every word.
I LOVE to listen to audiobooks - the Audible ap is by far the best thing that's ever happend to my iPhone.
Ok - so I am like a lot of people and I see my relationship and want to know what I can do to make it better. Sometimes I read a book about relationships... but usually found in the self help section... but THIS BOOK - this is a book that can very possibly give you insight to your own relationship.
I loved this book - I loved the premise, the narrator... the story. I loved the ending - heck... it's a great book.
I am waiting patiently for the best book on earth!!
This is the story of all of your lives and what happens in them!
I could not put this book down until the end!!!
Yes I would recommend this book to a friend. The story is solid and keeps you interested. At first I feel sorry for Alice because everyone is being impatient with her and not remembering that she has significant memory loss. And then she kind of accepts it and starts living again but on her terms. She doesn't have all of the baggage from before she lost her memory and she is not as angry and hurtful.
It is similar but more interesting than Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella. Both books are about memory loss and regaining ones life. And in both books the main character goes through some growth pains. But if I remember correctly in Remember Me?, it doesn't have such a great ending.
Why I'm glad you asked.... I have listened to Tamara Lovatt-Smith's performance of The Hypnotist Love Story. And I enjoyed that performance as well. She did a brilliant job in both performances.
When Alice started to warm to her husband again and then when he started to warm towards her. It was nice because you could tell they still loved each other.
This was a good listen and I really enjoy Liane Moriarty's writing. She has another good book that I like and its The Husbands Secret. There is a different narrator but the book is again really nice and surprising.
As far as What Alice Forget this book kept my interest writ till the end.
I liked them all. But Alice was my favorite.
I enjoy listening a few hours a day as I work. Lucky for me I work at home .
No - only because I do not like when the readers have a strong accent and this one had an Australian accent.
That it was interesting but not too predictable!
What a diiference 10 years can make.
