Book 28
What Alice Forgot, by Liane Moriarty
I blogged about this book mere hours after I finished reading it because it affected me so much I needed to write about it to get it out of my system. Months later, I still think about this book, still think about what it would be like to wake up one morning having forgotten the past 10 years of my life.
The story itself if thoroughly entertaining. You follow Alice along as she wakes up from a knock on the head, calls her husband to have him pick her up, and realizes that her entire life is a mystery. You stand by her as she goes home to a house she barely recognizes and meets children she doesn’t remember. You cry and rage with her and in the end, you’re hoping against hope that everything in her life will work out the way it should.
It’s a great read, one that will stick with you for a long, long time, and will help you see your own life in a different light.
Read this if: You enjoy women’s fiction. You like stories about strong women who overcome challenges. You love stories about friendships and family.
 
Would this make a good book club book? Definitely. You’ll talk about family, about life, about memories, and about what decisions you’ve all taken along the way that have led you to your current lives.
