I loved What Alice Forgot. This was really a story about someone finding herself again, but played out in a completely unique way. I have been recommending this book to everyone. Get it - you won't be disappointed!
This book is almost a modern day Shakespeare, in that it is a tragic love story. So many times in the book, I wanted to stop the characters and shake them and make them see reason. But it was beautifully written and I loved being carried away on the words.
Caroline Lee did a great job of capturing the different nuances between characters. You always knew who was speaking and what their viewpoint was. I thought her performance of young Grace and old Grace was particularly well done.
I had heard great things about this book, so I was excited to start it. But right away I was struck by the characters being very one dimensional, the plot pacing being rushed, and the coincidental conveniences stacking up. I really hate that.
If you like sci-fi or dystopia and don't care if you plot really makes sense, then maybe this is the book for you.
It actually really took my be surprise. I love when a story does that and takes you to an unexpected place instead of just following a formula.
Yes. I kept wondering how the next part was going to play out. I didn't see the middle or the end coming!
