When Alice Love surfaces from a beautiful dream to find she's been injured in a gym, she knows that something is very wrong – she hates exercise. Alice's first concern is her baby – she's pregnant with her first child, and she's desperate to see her husband, Nick, whom she knows will be worried about her. But Alice isn't pregnant. And Nick isn't worried. Alice is the mother of three children and her hostile husband is in the process of divorcing her. Alice has lost ten years of her life.
In the days that follow, small bubbles of the past rise to the surface, and Alice is forced to confront uncomfortable truths. It turns out forgetting might be the most memorable thing that's ever happened to her.

I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow
Yes I probably will listen to it again
I loved the concept of the book. It was so well written and believable.
I liked all of them but my favourite was Franny
Imagine skipping 10 years of your life
I'm just new to listening to Liane Moriarty and I lust love her stories! This is my second book of hers, I listened to My Husbands Secret and loved that's. This one I enjoyed more and didn't want it to end.
Yes, the Australian narrator nailed the funny moments and accentuated the personalities of the main characters
None so far. It was very different and a real opener to how we can change in 10 years, why and how everyone has a different perspective on things
I loved Elizabeth and her "homework" to her Doctor
WhenAlices senses were overloaded in the hospital by frangrance. Sense of smell is very emotive and it captures this perfectly
I could hardly stop listening. The story seems very true to reality. I love the way the author interprets her characters, so honest and sometimes very funny. And of course I love Caroline Lee as a reader. It's so easy to listen to her. She is a very talented lady.
Really enjoyed this book. It was engaging, the characters were well described and realistic. In book form I would have found it hard to put down.
"Thought provoking, difficult to put down"
Makes you think!
How useful it is for us to take a step back and look at our own life's with innocent eyes
I really enjoy listening to Caroline Lee. I liked Frannie best
If I could have done. I would have.
A really excellent book. I want another to listen to now!!
I have now listened to two books by this author and have enjoyed both. The narrator, Caroline Lee, is very good particularly when reading the children's parts. It is a story about a family and a marriage set in Sydney, Australia which makes a change from the usual USA or UK. The story is satisfying with a good beginning, middle and end. What more can you ask for unless you are wanting something highbrow to listen to?
"A must listen"
The narrator Caroline Lee makes this book. She bring all the characters to life. The story is really easy to listen to and very funny in parts.
The story is really easy to listen to and entertaining.
"It's an old idea but works well"
Character suffers bang on head and forgets what time they live in. This is an old idea but What Alice Forgot is a very good example. Loved the interaction between Alice and her sister in particularly. The story will probably make any mother who listens think hard between their pre baby and post child selves, it certainly did for me. If only we could go back and tell our childless selves what parenthood really means!!!
"Awesome book !"
Im really hooked on this author just starting her third novel she is amazing and the narration is fantastic
"Makes you think!"
An interesting story which makes you think about relationships.
Alice's understanding that it's so easy to bicker with the one you love without realising the damage you're doing.
Alice was my favourite character.
If only it was possible to be the person you once were ..
I loved this book. It was a good story, and made me think about my relationships. It made me question the type of person I am, and to make me think about how I'd grown and matured not always for the better.
"Superior Holiday Listen"
This was a beautifully read book which holds our interest from beginning to end. The narrator Caroline Lee does a good job of distinguishing characters without any annoying affectations. It was easy to listen to.
I have also listened to the Husbands Secret by the same author, Liane Moriarty. The Husbands Secret explores what it's like to find out something devastating about someone you love. What Alice Forgot is the same but different, it explores what it might be like to be presented with your future self. Like the Husbands Secret it is interesting, funny and sad.
A great performance by Caroline Lee, believable characterisations and an easy listen in the best possible way. I didn't want to stop listening and I wanted to race to the end to find out what happens.
The book particularly moved me when Alice is confronted by her current life compared to the way she felt as a younger person. I could easily relate to her confusion about the way her life had turned out.
I loved this book and The Husbands Secret and can't wait to read The Hypnotist.
"Couldn't put it down!"
Listening to the various characters stories, and points of view.
Thought provoking, funny and yet serious,
"too silly for words"
This book became annoying. A non story dragged out to the nth degree. Had to skip forward a lot.
yes, This was a good listen, well written and well read book. I wanted to know what happened to Alice and her family. The way the book is written really created a picture of certain events in the characters lives. I found myself just wanting to listen and Listen, Igot through this book very quickly.
