    "Unforgettable!"

    What Alice forgot is the story of Alice Love, a 39-year-old mother of three who goes to the gym and passes out during her spin class, hitting her head and forgetting the last 10 years of her life. A lot has happened in that ten years, she's had three kids, become a lot more fit, and separated from her husband Nick, who ten years ago she was madly in love with. This is my favorite of Liane Moriarty's books. She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. She does such a great job with her character development, you really feel like you know and care about these people in her stories. There is some strong language in this book, so be forworned. Other then that, I highly recommend What Alice Forgot!

    "Took a while to get into it."

    I think one Leanne Moriarty book I gear is enough. They are good but kind of similar. I liked the one about lies better

    "Had me crying in more than a few places!"
    What made the experience of listening to What Alice Forgot the most enjoyable?

    Tamara Lovatt-Smith's performance was good and I would listen to another book she narrated, but I have heard better. Sometimes I had a really hard time distinguishing the characters, which is not a problem with some other narrators. That is not to say that she wasn't great and I found her voice very soothing.

    This book was truly touching in a lot of ways. It has a bit of an edge, as people aren't very forthcoming with Alice after she has lost her memory, so it has a bit of mystery to it. What I most enjoyed was the general message about taking people for granted. If you have ever had a failed relationship based on this, then you will surely be touched, as well.

    "Perfect"

    There were so many aspects of this book that spoke to me. I wish I could say it's her very best work but I haven't read everything she's written. I really enjoyed 'Big Little Lies' but this one hit home because of the time I'm at in my Life.. That said the performance was amazing, and the story was amazing. I would recommend it for anybody who wants a good perspective on what marriage and family is really is about.. There's the ones you get to choose and the ones you don't and it's all about making the best of everybody who is in your life. It comes down to being the best person you can be and you'll get the best you can from everybody.. Alice is quite the character and anybody can really take a lot from the story .. I highly recommend this Audiobook.
