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
    "A wonderful reshreshing honest and beautiful book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of What Alice Forgot to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the Australian narrator nailed the funny moments and accentuated the personalities of the main characters


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

    None so far. It was very different and a real opener to how we can change in 10 years, why and how everyone has a different perspective on things


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

    I loved Elizabeth and her "homework" to her Doctor


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

    WhenAlices senses were overloaded in the hospital by frangrance. Sense of smell is very emotive and it captures this perfectly

    "Realistic, funny and touching"

    I could hardly stop listening. The story seems very true to reality. I love the way the author interprets her characters, so honest and sometimes very funny. And of course I love Caroline Lee as a reader. It's so easy to listen to her. She is a very talented lady.

    "What Alice Forgot"

    Really enjoyed this book. It was engaging, the characters were well described and realistic. In book form I would have found it hard to put down.

    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
    "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?

    If you could sum up What Alice Forgot in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, interesting, gripping


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Really loved the new Alice and her sister, both great central characters.


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

    I am really picky about the narrators I listen to. I loved Caroline Lee and would listen to others based on her alone.


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

    Yes! But it was a bit long,I had to break it up over a week or so.

    "Memory lost book - but such a good read -"

    The narrator Caroline Lee is excellent she just makes each character come to life especially the three children. I just loved this book mainly funny -slightly serious in places. Such suspense awaiting the ending.
