Synopsis

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, THE HUSBAND’S SECRET...

A “cheerfully engaging”* novel for anyone who’s ever asked herself, “How did I get here?”

 

  

Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child.

 

So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over — she’s getting divorced, she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over…

Astounding

This book had me hooked from beginning to end. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time as the author took me back and forth in time in the lives of these characters. Truly an amazing piece of work.

This is an enthralling book. The characters are so real it feels like you could call them up for a chat. It has suspense, laughs, and a ton of heart. I know i will read this book again.

This was a fantastic book, I couldn't put it down. Very thought provoking and many, many women will relate in some way with Alice. Just loved the ending:))

Am I the best person to write a review?
January 11th, 2015
This is the second book by Ms. Moriarty that I've read recently. I tend to follow up with another story by the same author, just to see if he/she can deliver the same quality again. Obviously the first novel had to be good or I'd never pay for another! (why are e-books so expensive anyway?) This was another great read, by the way! A solid story line is an essential of course but without excellent character development and captivating writing, it will all fall flat! If the reader misses the characters when the book ends and is still has lingering thought of them days later, then I've experienced a great read! What Alice Forgot is well worth reading. I know somewhere down the road, I'll read it again even though I'll already know how it ends simply because I loved the story so much!

What Alice forgot by Liane Moriarty
December 23rd, 2014
Absolutely fantastic! I couldn't put it down. I laughed, I cried and it was a rollercoaster of emotions. As a mother, a wife and a long time fertility junkie, this book really struck a cord. I hugged my kids a little tighter each day and kissed my husband a little longer at night. What a great read!

Beautifully written and heartfelt. Every time I thought I'd figured out what was going on I was pleasantly surprised otherwise. I loved it from beginning to end

Lovely! Just lovely! As is everything she writes! Typically our everyday lives and in which everybody should get a memory lost that would put back our perspective of our " busy, busy, busy" life and save on mistakes.... Totally a must read!!

Absolutely loved this book. The concept was a new twist and exploring what it meant to the main character was extremely interesting and it just moved along really well. The resolution of the story was incredibly satisfying, tying up loose ends, which I loved. I hate it when you get to the end and wonder "well then what happened?". I'm so glad I've read this book. It is one I will think about for a long time.

Great Read!
January 17th, 2014
At first I was not sure I would like this book, it grabbed me and I had to see what would happen next!! The characters were intriguing and you could resonate with them. They were like you and me, ordinary people. I did not like the letters that Elizabeth wrote to her therapist. I felt they were long and rambled. But those are few. It's a great read and really could happen to anyone!!

Wow, this one hits a little close to home! Every 40 year old with a 10 year old should read this and ask how her 30 year old self would look at her now. A bit of a wake up call.
