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 as good as Big Little Lies"
    What did you love best about What Alice Forgot?

    Not as good as Liane Moriarty's other works, but still solid effort. Good narration and engaging throughout.

    Story
    "really enjoyable read"
    What did you love best about What Alice Forgot?

    Liane Moriaty has a way of making very real characters present very real issues in a thought provoking and clever way. Caroline Lee brings these characters to life. They are the pole next door, your old school teacher, the guy at the coffee shop...it's li,ke walking through your own life but with your eyes and ears really wide open!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Liane Moriarty? Why or why not?

    onto my third and still going. Big Little Lies is the best though!


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    Caroline Lee makes the characters real. She has a fabulous sense of timing. I can see that she and the author must have a very good understanding of each other


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

    the realisation that time changes most things but not who we really are pops up many times during the book and it is a simple but refreshing and somehow deeply comforting


    Any additional comments?

    read this book. she tells a great tale in a very clever and moving way and the narrator is all these characters, just as you might read (or hear) them yourself.

    "Throroughly Enjoyable Listening."

    This is the second book I have listened to by Liane Moriarty and read by Caroline Lee. The narrator does an excellent job and really enhances the book. Always a plus when that happens. I liked the twists and turns in the plot and imagine if this really did happen.

    "Life as we know it.."

    A good story of a marriage that has gone wrong and how there's simplicity in fixing it if only we could forget the past.... Which Alice did! A story of a normal life, the climb up the corporate ladder and how material things get in the way of love and life. A lovely read!

    Story
    "Fast forward 10 years of your life, what a premise"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! Mind-shifting! Take a little time and walk in the shoes of the main character, it's a fun and moving read!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The premise, you wake up from a head injury and you have forgotten the last 10 years - what assumptions about your relationship then would you make now! Beautifully written!


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

    Energy and fun! She brings the humour out fabulous!


    Any additional comments?

    Love Liane Moriarty and this is a favourite amongst her novels

    "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.

    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?

    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
    "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.

    "Entertaining and easy to listen to."

    Good characterisation and story sustained my interest while I painted a bedroom. Started to carry iPad to the car so could continue listening to. I've listened to 3 other books by this author and I think because same reader I'm feeling a sameness about stories. My husband hates the reader! I think she does a very good job but probably too familiar.

    Story
    "Forget about 'chicklit'. This is a 'must-read'."
    Where does What Alice Forgot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listen to a lot of 'chick lit' novels to relax - and some 'worthy' novels, too. I expected this to be 'chick lit' but I believe it can stand up with the best of them. It was fascinating, funny, gripping and sad.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alice. She seemed real and likeable. Interesting character development.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Earlier scenes were funny when Alice was still not accepting her memory loss. But the end scenes were romantic and delicious.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the narration. The book took over my life for a while. Very pleased that I listened rather than read the book for authenticity. I would have read it hearing English accents rather than Australian.

    Liane Moriarty is becoming one of my favourite authors, a brilliant story and as always beautifully read by Caroline Lee.
    The combination of the two is a wonderful escape from the day to day rush of life.

    Story
    "Easy to listen to"

    I enjoyed listening to this book. I did find it difficult to establish between which characters were speaking as the narrator did not distinguish between voices. The main character Alice was frustrating in parts and sometimes a little stupid and this was a bit annoying by he end. In summary just a good easy listen to accompany the drive to work but I wouldn't rush to recommend this to a friend. Will try another book by this author though as the story telling in some parts was great and some of he descriptions made the book come alive.

    Story
    "Background noises very annoying."

    Great story, with a good reader - but her consist gulping/swallowing ruined it along with the gulping of her tummy, a clock ticking & even a fly buzzing. I've never experienced any of this with Audible before so was very surprised that the quality was just not there this time.
