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.

"What Alice forgot"
Very true to life feelings and emotions cleverly written into quite a good story although a little slow to start.
"Lovely read, ending a bit lame"
Good story, likeable characters, easy pace, a little too slow at times, kept you wanting to know what had happened in the missing years.
"Stick with it"
Yes I would, narrators voice is a bit annoying though!
As the plot developed and learning about what had happened during the 10 years. Hearing about sisters attempts to get pregnant
Yes overall, took bit of time to get into
"Incredible, but frustrating at the beginning"
When the book began, for quite a while I find the character of Alice extremely frustrating, annoying and stupid. Her determination to defy logic and everything that the reader took as obvious was at times infuriating. But I have to say, as it went on, the book was amazing and it made me think. Overall it was an incredible book and even though the beginning was difficult, it's definitely worth hearing the whole thing.
"Intriguing page turner"
I loved this book. It kept me interested right until the end. I thought the characters were well written and believable. it's one of those books that will stay with me.
"Yet another wonderful 'listen'!"
I am so endlessly grateful to my wonderful daughter for introducing me to Liane Moriarty's books! Always a complete joy!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I realistic look at how life changes when you have children and how different a person you become. I loved the ending :-)
A great book. A really different plot theme. I would thoroughly recommend it. Very thought provoking at times. Great ending too.
"Another very good read"
Enjoyed another good read from Liane Moriarty. The characters are likeable and well drawn and the story thought provoking in parts. Otherwise sheer escapism!
"Wow! Really makes you think"
Couldn't wait to move on to the next chapter, then the next. This book is very thought provoking. It made me wonder what I would be surprised by if I lost my memory and missed 10 years of my life.
