What would happen if you were visited by your younger self and got a chance for a do-over? Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she’s actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.
Yes, she did it again! It is no news that Liane Moriarty is one of my top ten favorite authors, and one of the reasons I keep coming back to her books is the fact that she never disappoints me. She has an uncanny talent for making everyday life interesting. Her character development is fantastic, and she is an amazing story-teller.
What Alice Forgot is one of those novels that although the premise is quite unlikely to happen, it is still written in a way that makes you ponder your own life and choices you make in relationships. I found myself constantly reviewing things I had or had not done in my previous marriage, and the things I used to take for granted in relationships.
My only issue with the audio version of this book was the narration. I felt that at times I could not distinguish between Alice and her sister’s voice, so I had to constantly rewind a few passages in order to understand what was going on. Overall a great read. I highly recommend it!
