Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A wonderful reshreshing honest and beautiful book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of What Alice Forgot to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the Australian narrator nailed the funny moments and accentuated the personalities of the main characters


    What other book might you compare What Alice Forgot to and why?

    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


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    I loved Elizabeth and her "homework" to her Doctor


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    WhenAlices senses were overloaded in the hospital by frangrance. Sense of smell is very emotive and it captures this perfectly

    "Realistic, funny and touching"

    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.

    "What Alice Forgot"

    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.

    Story
    "Most enjoyable"

    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?

    Story
    "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!!!

    "Makes you think!"
    Where does What Alice Forgot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    An interesting story which makes you think about relationships.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What Alice Forgot?

    Alice's understanding that it's so easy to bicker with the one you love without realising the damage you're doing.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favourite?

    Alice was my favourite character.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If only it was possible to be the person you once were ..


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Superior Holiday Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of What Alice Forgot to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What other book might you compare What Alice Forgot to, and why?

    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.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book and The Husbands Secret and can't wait to read The Hypnotist.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.
