Publisher's Summary

What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over? Alice Love is 29 years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she's actually 39, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce. A knock on the head has misplaced 10 years of her life, and Alice isn't sure she likes who she's become. It turns out, though, that forgetting might be the most memorable thing that has ever happened to Alice.

    Story
    "Not terribly interestng"
    Would you try another book from Liane Moriarty and/or Tamara Lovatt-Smith?

    Possibly, but likely not.


    If you’ve listened to books by Liane Moriarty before, how does this one compare?

    I Have not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator mostly just read the words. Very little distinction between characters. Some portions depend on identifying the character(s) to make sense. I had to keep tracking back to identify whom it was. After chapter twenty I just didn't care.


    Do you think What Alice Forgot needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I hardly think so.


    Any additional comments?

    The two male protagonists are named 'Nick' and 'Dominick.' That troubles me.The first 12-15 chapters are interesting because of the premise. Thereafter it is less engaging. I dislike having to work at identifying the characters, or slog through tedious trivialities that don't add to the story.Listening to this book reminded me of watching an acting cast doing a "read through," with no previous rehearsal or direction.

    Story
    "Sorry I Waited So Long to Read Moriarty!"

    My first Liane Moriarty book. What a nice surprise! Definitely a step above chic lit. Engaging, humorous and thought provoking. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. It just kept ending...3 or 4 times. I thought the conclusion would have been better if the author stopped with the first ending.

    Story
    "Kept me driving around for hours just listening."
    Would you listen to What Alice Forgot again? Why?

    Definitely will! It was a wonderful story!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I couldn't guess how it would end !


    What about Tamara Lovatt-Smith’s performance did you like?

    Perfect accent for the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    And what was worth remembering.

    Besides incessant listening to audiobooks, I also read on my Kindle at night, birdwatch, garden (roses, daylilies), and do genealogy.

    Story
    "Delightful listen!"

    I spent about three days immersed in Alice's story. It's all about amnesia, marriage, divorce, infertility, having children--life! Basically, it is what I call a "relationship book." No monsters, no non-stop action, no murders. However, there certainly was a slowly unfolding mystery. The story held me spellbound, and I never lost interest.

    I was particularly charmed by the narrator, Tamara Lovatt-Smith. Her delightful Australian accent, along with a perfect take on Alice's personality, made me love listening to this story. Her voice remained in my head the next day after I had finished my listen.

    If I had a minor quibble, it would be that Ms. Lovatt-Smith should learn how to do different voices to make the narration a little easier for listeners. I am sure this will come in time.

    The next time I get the craving for a "relationship" book, I will certainly turn to Liane Moriarty. And hopefully, to Ms. Lovatt-Smith.

    "Up lifting."
    Where does What Alice Forgot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As far as What Alice Forget this book kept my interest writ till the end.
    Light comedy.

    I liked them all. But Alice was my favorite.


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

    I enjoy listening a few hours a day as I work. Lucky for me I work at home .

    "Thought provoking story and completely enjoyable."

    I found the story very enjoyable and as always the authors writing causes me to step back and evaluate relationships. the Narrator could have switched voices with each character. by speaking in the same tone it made listening less easy.
