What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty (Book Review #108)

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

(Finished Reading 05/01/17
My 1st book this year.)

Alice bumped her head and after waking up at hospital, her life is quite a shock. She has lost every memory within the last 10years of her life. It’s amazing what can happen in 10years. She is 39 but thinks she is 29.

Her marriage, kids, family relationships and friendships have taken a huge turn, but she cannot remember HOW she has become this person that she definitely dislikes.


I really enjoyed this book and found it fascinating how Alice became a complete new person in 10years.

I love how we go through events with her as she learns ‘new’ things about herself everyday and is completely shocked by the type of person she has become. I love the memories,the pain and the drama.

I wish her memory returning was more subtle. I would have preferred to learn about Alice much more slowly rather than a quick conclusion summarised within the final 10% of the book.

I love Nick and Alice together. I really enjoyed reliving Alice’s younger years as she catches up to reality.

Definitely a recommended read. Now I am at a loss as to what to read next.
