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.

    "Great story for any busy mom"

    Sweet story about family, love, and being busy. Good reminders about what is important and what you want from life marriage and family.

    "Great mom book"

    I think if you have kids you can totally relate to this story. I really enjoyed it. It's not nearly as dramatic as her other stories.

    "Fun book to read"

    Fun book to read. It stirs lots of emotions. A book about love and forgiveness.

    Story
    "Interesting premise, very disappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    This was my third book by Liane Moriarty: first The Lake House - which was pretty good, then Big Little Lies - which kind of drudged on, but had a good ending and then this. This was just bad.

    I loved the premise and I though the book started out strong. It had me thinking about my life a decade ago and how things have changed in the last ten years. But this story just went downhill...it was hours and hours of predictability and no real surprise ending like Big Little Lies.

    I think Moriarty is good at character development, but I just didn't end up liking these characters.

    Story
    "A Great Way to Reflect"

    I didn't know what to expect from this story. I bought this audio out of impulse and my love for the name Alice.

    Out of the very few audiobooks I experienced, this one grabbed my attention. I laid on my bed listening to this story for almost two hours. The narrator wasn't the best but the story was amazing. As a young female in a relationship I could reflect on my relationship choices because of Alice's (when she was young and 10 years older.) I felt like I've learned a lot and I would buy this physical copy to highlight the sentences that made me think and pulled at my heart strings.

    This book is beautiful and very real. It won't always give you what you want but it allows you to form your own opinions.

    I recommend this as a physical book and an audio. Especially if you're young and trying to debate if your "young opinions" are valid.

    Story
    "Slow starter; Rich story."

    I don't care for the Australian/British reading voice however since they do you speak that dialect and Australia is where it is set it does make sense. The story gets richer and richer and really has a very full and satisfying ending.

    Story
    "Wonderful!"

    I've had several goes at writing a review of this book. Can't seem to do it justice. Except to repeat - wonderful. It's a surprising read. The characters - the relationships all feel completely authentic. It's a very well constructed story that leads you forward wanting to know more. Liane Moriarty is my new writer's crush. She sneaks in lots of wisdom without any heavy handedness.

    "Great Book & Wonderful Narration"

    I love to read a book like all book lovers - but a good book with wonderful narration just adds color to the printed page. This was an amazing story & the narration just made it so vivid in my mind. Well done...Cheers!
