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.

    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
    "This was a delightful surprise"

    I loved this and it's not my usual sort of read. I chose it after reading Little Lies, which I enjoyed but this was even better. What could have been a very contrived story line was rendered captivating by the freshness and humour, beautifully brought to life by the narrator. It would be hard to read without considering what our ten-years-ago self would think of us now!

    Story
    "How life changes our personality"
    What made the experience of listening to What Alice Forgot the most enjoyable?

    How she came to realise how much she had changed over the last 10 years. How it changed how she veiwed others, how other people viewed her, and her outlook on life. It really made me think how I might have changed over the last 10 years!! I sort of guessed how the story might end but it was still nice to hear the happy ending - and for her sister too.


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

    Possibly, 'Before I go to Sleep' only because the main character in that had also lost her memory, but the story lines were quite different.


    What three words best describe Caroline Lee’s performance?

    annoying, high pitched, irritating. (I see that she narrates most of Lianne Moriartys books and for that reason I could not listen to another!!)


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

    O would some power the gift to give us to see ourselves as others see us.(Robbie Burns)


    Any additional comments?

    Really good book and worth reading, but only listen to it if you can endure the narrators irritating voice!!

    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!!!

    Story
    "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.
