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.

    "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

    Story
    "Entertaining but forgettable"

    Good to listen to but a bit of a disappointing conclusion. The premise was interesting especially when you consider how much changed over the 10 year period that Alice lost due to amnesia; mobile phones,texting, social media but most of all how self obsessed the general population had become in a quest for the perfect appearance. Along with the main story there's also her sister's story told in excerpts to her psychiatrist, this was interesting. Then there was Frans story told in the form of blogs but this didn't add much to the book.

    I found myself having to drag myself back to this book. The story was predictable start to finish. The only thing that saved it was the narration.

    "Interesting for head injured people"

    I enjoyed the story; Liane Moriarty writes in an engaging manner and Caroline Lawrence reads extremely well. This tale was pertinent to me as a head injured person who has lost some memory. My memories did not return the way Alice¨s did, but that is not to say that they could not return in this way.
    The characters were likeable and the story believable. It does not have the typical happy ending which can become rather banale.
    An enjoyable listen.

    "Interesting story that kept me interested."

    However the narrator's harsh and piercing voice made me turn off to give my ears a rest! Perhaps better read as a book rather than listened to.

    "every busy mum should read this!"

    I enjoyed this book very much, as it reflects what I think can happen to so many families, couples. The pressure to be a super mum, have a clean house, have a career, maintain a good marriage, etc. This story was a wonderful read and I feel like I have had an invaluable lesson on remembering to focus on the relationships in my life, before the unending rush of daily life.

    "Thought Provoking"
    What made the experience of listening to What Alice Forgot the most enjoyable?

    What would YOU tell yourself now for you to hear in 10 years? That's the premise of the story and it had us all in major discussions at work and in the running group - not to mention book club. Definitely worth a read just to think about your own live. Beautiful characters by Liane as always.

    "An interesting look at how the years fly by"

    This was a great read with a lovely take on how the years change who we are and how we act. The writing style is fluid with great character perspective and the story is well spun making it easy to follow. It's the perfect book if you can only read in short snatches but you will love it enough to make the time longer..
