Book Review: What Alice Forgot


What Alice Forgot 

Liane Moriarty

Goodreads Suummary:

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 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.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book!  Moriarty’s characters are so true-to-life, and even though this book is not a “whodunit” it still has that feel of suspense that keeps pushing you forward to find out what’s next.  How do things end out?  Who is this person they keep referring to?  What happened?  What will happen when she gets her memory back?  Will it affect all the feelings she’s been having throughout this period of memory loss?  Hmm…  I loved all the subplots and how they were all weaved together.  The epilogue was perfect.  Such an enjoyable read!  Delightful.


Would I recommend this to fellow book lovers?  Absolutely.
Would I recommend this to my teen daughter?  Probably not.  It’s not really YA.


4.5 of 5 stars because I cringe at profanity in books.
