WHAT ALICE FORGOT

Author:  Liane Moriarty
Genre:  Chick-Lit, Standalone
Published:  2011
Personal Rating:  3.75/5 (good +)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Caroline Lee
Yearly Count:  55


Alice (estranged wife and mother of 3), hits her head while working out at the gym and loses the last 10 years of her memory.

This kept my interest, but I was always waiting for something BIG to happen.  I never got that.  Maybe reading/listening to many, many thrillers has trained my mind to think something was going to really elevate the story.  Like I said, that didn't happen; however, I still enjoyed the time with Alice as she worked through her memory loss.

Side Note:  The cover doesn't do the book justice.

  2. Yeah, I'm not sure about the cover. I admit this book wasn't on my radar until I read The Husband's Secret. I like the author's writing style. And while I didn't love The Husband's Secret the way so many others did, I did like it and am curious about the author's other books.

    1. Literary Feline ~ I could have written what you just said. :) I probably like THS a little less than you, though, but the general idea remains the same.

  3. I've read so many good things about this one, but haven't read it yet. I think for those of us who are used to reading lots of action and intrigue it can affect our enjoyment of a slower book!

  4. I enjoyed this a bit more than you, but I too was waiting for something "big" to happen. Still want to read a few more by this author, but haven't gotten around to anything else. Yet.
