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.

    "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.

    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.

    "Thought provoking, difficult to put down"
    If you could sum up What Alice Forgot in three words, what would they be?

    What was one of the most memorable moments of What Alice Forgot?

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

    I really enjoy listening to Caroline Lee. I liked Frannie best


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

    If I could have done. I would have.


    Any additional comments?

    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?

    "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!!!
