Rating: 5 Stars
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…
Liane Moriarty has easily become one of my favorite authors as her books are not only intriguing but extremely unique. I also feel like Moriarty has a writing style like no other author out there which draws me into her stories even more. In this one, the story unfolds in a multitude of ways. Different character perspectives are uniquely added into the story so readers are able to gain many different points of view and see the story in more ways than one. It is said that every side has their own story and this comes out wonderfully in What Alice Forgot. I will admit though that the story started a little slow for me. There was one moment that I thought I would DNF the book but I am so glad I read on because it honestly gets better and better as everything progresses. Some points made me laugh, others made me want to cry, and in some I wanted to strangle the characters and scream for them to open their eyes! But it all came together wonderfully in the end.
If you are new to this author or looking for your next book to read than I would definitely recommend reading this one (or any of the authors other books). They are all great stories!!!
