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.

    "Not my favorite by this author"

    It took a few chapters to get into the story. Once you do, it's an interesting story. Worth it in the end.

    "not as good as expected"

    This is my third Liane Moriarty book. After thoroughly enjoying The Husband's Secret and Big Little Lies, I couldn't wait to jump into another. WJF did not measure up to the other two.

    "I really enjoyed this book...."

    This is my second book by LM and like the first one I really enjoyed it.
    It is very well written. The story has depth and made me think: who would I be without my memory of who I am?
    LM has a witty humor and an ability to write about human emotions & thoughts so we can instantly relate and recognize ourselves.

    Story
    "Liane + Caroline = magic"
    Where does What Alice Forgot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've also "read" The Husband's Secret by Liane and loved that one, though it was a bit more tragic than this one overall.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gina. It's always about Gina.


    What does Caroline Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Caroline Lee as a narrator. There is another version of this book that is more widely reviewed by a different author but is 2 hours shorter? Due to pace? I choose this version specifically for Caroline's great work.

    Story
    "I love Liane Moriarty's Books - she's so real!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of What Alice Forgot to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    Liane (and Caroline) make me laugh, think, feel sad, feel aligned with the characters, just enjoy the whole story.


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

    Alice, but also her sister Elizabeth, and the children. Also enjoyed the men's characters - very true to life - both the wonderful and the challenging!


    If you could rename What Alice Forgot, what would you call it?

    No idea!


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks to Liane for writing these creative stories, and bringing characters that are so real to life. I have enjoyed many of her books. And Caroline reads her books very well - her voice suits the characters in Liane's stories.

    Story
    "A Bit of Struggle"

    The first half of the story dragged somewhat but the second half became more interesting as it unfolded. The most difficult thing about sticking with it was the narrator's voice and characterisations. It had nothing to do with her Australian accent....her voice was very strident, and it was also quite difficult to differentiate between the different female characters except Alice, she did try to soften her voice for Alice. I really to think that I couldn't continue after about halfway, but the storyline, although not startling, started to become a little more interesting.

    "A nice surprise"

    I've had this in my wish list for a while, but didn't get it because I really couldn't be bothered to listen to another vapid chick lit with no substance. This is not one of those books. Yes, it's cheesy and cliche, but the narrator brings this story to life. If you're unsure, I would definitely recommend you give it a go.

    "A wasted storyline"

    The plot and idea of this book is fantastic, and it helps you reflect on how you may have decided differently as your younger self. There are two things that ruined this audiobook for me: the first one was the performance. The narrator had this super annoying habit of loudly swallowing in between sentences, taking a loud breath in, and she also made noises as if she constantly had this need of swallowing her excess saliva. Sorry to be so descriptive, but this totally ruined the book for me. I listened to many audiobooks and never had this issue before. Secondly, the plot is full of cliches - the sister dying to have a baby and of course her career isn't enough at all; stay at home mum spending hundreds of dollars of the husband's hard earned cash on extravagant things; son being very brainy and keen on science but the daughters are either adorable and speak like "darling mummy" or enjoy baking like nothing else. All in all, it is a wasted storyline. I would probably recommend getting the book itself and fast forwarding when needed!

    "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.
