    Hold your ponies!!!! I read this book years ago. I still have a physical copy. For some reason my review has disappeared but I came here to share with anybody who has not read it - and is interested - it?s a $1.99 Kindle Special today. This was one of my favorite books by Lian...

    I found this to be a thought-provoking book. It highlighted just how complex are the factors that contribute to the dissolution of a marriage, how easy it is to become caught up in the fixation on the negative, how terribly difficult it is to forgive ("[Forgiveness] was such a lovely, ...

    If I were to forget the last ten years of my life, and wake up with no memory of those ten years.....what would I regret? What would surprise me? What would make me proud? Which relationships have changed for the better, which ones have changed for the worst? This book really made me t...

    Pedestrian. The writing, the story, the characters all just too pedestrian. There was nothing that lifted this book in to the realm of interesting, or even 'mildly interesting'. It's the sort of book I keep in the glove compartment of my car. I know I'm never going to read it but there...

    I don't give out a lot of 5 stars. THIS. Was worth it. Spoke to me on several levels. In fact parts were painful to read since it felt like Moriarty was describing my life, and I didn't like what I saw? I think you can describe this as Chick-Lit... which I normally wouldn't be thri...

    Rating Clarification First half of the book: 2.5 Stars Second half of the book: Solid 4 Stars Epilogue: Undeniably 5 Stars First off, What Alice Forgot is so different from my normally preferred genres. This adult fiction covers a broad array of topics that frankly scare the shiz...

    What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty was not and enjoyable or satisfying read for me. I found this book over written and very repetitive and to be honest I struggled to finish it. There was so many times in this book that I wanted to scream as Alice just seemed to round and round ...

    Before my review, here's what Liane has to say about writing this book (which is in lieu of me composing my own synopsis, haha): I had always wanted to write a story about time travel but I found the logistics made my head explode. Then I read a story about a woman in the UK who los...

    487 pages of pure torture! What Alice Forgot was not at all what I expected. That should teach me never to read a book that hasn?t been rated by at least one of my trusted friends. You see, I thought this would be a well written, intelligent, heartwarming story about a woman who lo...

    What Alice Forgot by Lianne Moriarty is a 2010 PanMacMillian Australia publication. With so many books out there, there is bound to be an author that slips by unnoticed, and for me, sadly, Lianne Moriarty falls into that category. I knew her books were well received and popular...

    Set in Australia during 2008, What Alice Forgot tells the story of thirty-nine year old Alice Love. She is a single mother of three and is going through a messy divorce. One day at the gym, Alice has an accident, bumps her head and forgets the past ten years of her life. Alice wakes up...

    Thirty nine year old Alice has had an unfortunate fall at her gym and ?lost? ten years of her life. When she comes around she?s convinced she?s a slightly over weight twenty nine year old with a severe exercise aversion ? what?s going on! What happens from this point is ...

    I loved aspects of this book and I really wanted to love this book because the premise was interesting, but it fell short for me in a few ways. This was a highly readable book, it flowed fast and you really did not have to stop and think about it too much. This was just the type of boo...

    I opened this book on my eReader, tapped my way to the beginning, and then fell into the story headlong ? without checking the depth of the water first. Lucky for me, this story has both incredible depth and breadth; I could have safely dived off a hundred foot cliff right into this ...

    Liane Moriarty has done for Australia, what Maeve Binchy did for Ireland. They both brought the ordinary people of their countries alive on an unprecedented scale. Liane Moriarty is an international bestselling author. Look at her impressive bio on GR. With Maeve Binchy's passing, ...

    I love this book. Another terrific page-turner with well-drawn, interesting, and sympathetic characters. I get the idea that this is considered chick lit, but maybe it?s just that it doesn?t have enough U.S. exposure (the writer is Australian). Anyway, it?s not chick lit; it?s ...

    Great story, great characters, great plot! What an enjoyable page-turner that made me think. Liked this one more than Moriarty's two recent novels. 4.5?stars! ...

    I found What Alice Forgot to be a humorous, uplifting and an enjoyable book with the right balance of heartache. The concept was interesting with a little mystery to it as well. Alice has a fall at the gym and loses her memory of the last 10 years. I really enjoyed how the story was...

    My favorite Moriarty book so far. Smarter and more thought provoking than the later novels I have read. It really made me think about who I was and who I've become. If you could have a do-over for the last ten years of your life, what would happen? What would you decide? An enjoyable, ...

    Alice appears to be a popular name for book titles: Alice in Wonderland; Go Ask Alice; Still Alice; and now, What Alice Forgot. Luckily, none of them are the same Alice. This one fell on the wayside as I thought I had already read the ?Alice" book. Moriarty has a talent for weaving e...

    What DID Alice forget? Well, after a fall at the gym, apparently everything! I'm beginning to truly adore these amnesiac stories - really! I am! How many ways can it happen? How long will it last? Will the husband be a baddie or a good guy? But I digress....this is about Alice. Why did...

    I put "What Alice Forgot" on hold so many times that I felt like a receptionist at a medical center. It's so unfair to do this to a book, but I'll blame life, because it just happens. I was also a bit hesitant reading my second novel by Liane Moriarty. I had loved "The Husband's Secret...

    I'm normally not a big fan of amnesia story lines because they give me anxiety as it feels like torture having to wait for the person to eventually recall their memories. However, I gave this book a shot because I loved The Husband's Secret and Big Little Lies and thankfully, this tur...

    Clever and funny. As with all of Moriarty's books, this one's filled with very rich, fully-developed characters. They are just so wonderfully relatable, so very, very real. I knew I liked this author when I was laughing out loud by page 3. I've since read 'The Husband's Secret' and ...
