What Alice Forgot (2009) - Plot & Excerpts

"Change is the only constant in life" - like it or not.How much have we changed in the past 10 years ? How different will we be from our present selves ten years from now ? Would my 18 year old self deal with my 28 year old situations similarly ? All those memories, what if one day they disappeared and you had to face life not knowing yourself ? There have been countless novels and movies that are guilty of romanticizing amnesia. Thankfully this one was not an unrealistic and over the top amnesia story. It made a poignant but highly entertaining holiday read.“Early love is exciting and exhilarating. It's light and bubbly. Anyone can love like that. But after three children, after a separation and a near-divorce, after you've hurt each other and forgiven each other, bored each other and surprised each other, after you've seen the worst and the best-- well, that sort of love is ineffable. It deserves its own word.” - Liane Moriarty (What Alice Forgot) I felt a few different ways about this book as I was reading it. At first it felt like a kind of contrived mystery. Like the story of an ordinary life disguised as a mystery through amnesia to make it page turning and more interesting than it actually is. As it turns out, it was I think a deep, smart look at relationships and how they change over time with the growth of a family, the realities of aging, and the unhappiness that can befall people for all sorts of reasons. The ending was a little too neat and a little too happy for my tastes but other than that I found it very interesting. If you don't have a family/kids, and/or you are youngish (20-30) you may find it harder to connect with.

What do You think about What Alice Forgot (2009)?

Entertaining with a decent twist - but not as good as Husband's Secret

Everything Landline wanted to be. Funny and smart

Seemed to drag on, but I did enjoy the story!

loved this book, I could not put it down
