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.

    "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.

    "Throroughly Enjoyable Listening."

    This is the second book I have listened to by Liane Moriarty and read by Caroline Lee. The narrator does an excellent job and really enhances the book. Always a plus when that happens. I liked the twists and turns in the plot and imagine if this really did happen.

    Story
    "Life as we know it.."

    A good story of a marriage that has gone wrong and how there's simplicity in fixing it if only we could forget the past.... Which Alice did! A story of a normal life, the climb up the corporate ladder and how material things get in the way of love and life. A lovely read!

    Story
    "Fast forward 10 years of your life, what a premise"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! Mind-shifting! Take a little time and walk in the shoes of the main character, it's a fun and moving read!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The premise, you wake up from a head injury and you have forgotten the last 10 years - what assumptions about your relationship then would you make now! Beautifully written!


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

    Energy and fun! She brings the humour out fabulous!


    Any additional comments?

    Love Liane Moriarty and this is a favourite amongst her novels

    What a great book! I'm already predisposed to liking Liane Moriarty novels and this lived up to expectation!

    Full of thought-provoking content and beautifully read, this got me thinking and reflecting on my own life. In a good way, I'm happy to add 😊.

    "Clever story"

    How would your relationship be changed if you lost all memory of the previous 10 years? This is the fascinating story of Alice and how she copes with being a stranger in her own life. Extremely well written and beautifully acted by Caroline Lee.

    Very enjoyable I like the writing style of Laine Moriaty. Some of her one liners really make me chuckle out loud.
    Her characters are people you can relate to.
    Well read, I just love the fact an Australian is narrating a story situated in Australia.
