Loved it! ( )

I've been on a bit of a Moriarty audiobook kick while I walk my dog in the mornings and commute to work. This was, as always, charming and entertaining, but I thought the ending fell flat, trying a little too hard to resolve happily. It's kind of a thought experiment: what if you forgot ten years of your life? It would be like forgetting who you were, but not quite. The parallel story about Elizabeth, Alice's sister, was especially interesting, but I never understood the point of the third storyline about Franny, their adopted grandmother. ( )

Alice has no memory of the last ten years of her life when she falls over. She can’t remember being a mother to three & can’t understand why she should be separated from her husband.

Strangely the second novel I have read in a week where the author uses amnesia to have the main character question their own personality.

Alice doesn’t like the sharp, organised woman she has apparently grown into.

A wry, contemporary novel about relationships, motherhood & priorities. A quick read, about recognisable people, & thoroughly enjoyable. ( )

I read this book in about 24 hours. It was relaxing and thought-provoking. What if we could lose the last ten years of life? What would we appreciate and what would we miss if we could pick up where we left off at some particular time in the past? Moriarty certainly encourages the reader to examine relationships through different lenses. ( )
  LindaLoretz | Mar 15, 2021 |
Although at first this story could very easily be the book I previously read Before I Go To Sleep. But the differences become almost immediately obvious. Can you imagine waking up and missing years of your life? To wake up and not recognize your children, your family, or even yourself in the mirror? That’s what happens to poor Alice. She doesn’t recognize the person people are telling her she is compared to the person she feels she is minus 10 years of course. And when you don’t know who you are or what you are you obviously don’t know where to begin your life again. Overall I feel the book wound up nicely with an ending that wasn’t quite perfect but wasn’t quite horrible either. ( )

Twenty-nine-year-old Alice Love is pregnant with her first child, adores her husband, Nick, and has never set foot inside a spinning studio. Thirty-nine-year-old Alice Love suffers a sudden fall in her Friday spin class, wakes up with a splitting headache, and finds out she has three children and is in the middle of custody proceedings. Without any concrete memories of the past 10 years, Alice tries to figure out how her free-spirited 29-year-old self became a volunteer-coordinating, spin-class-attending 39-year-old woman. What Alice Forgot is an often funny, sometimes heartrending, deeply personal portrait of a woman attempting to unravel her own mystery.

Early love is exciting and exhilarating. It's light and bubbly. Anyone can love like that. But love after three children, after separation and near divorce - after you've hurt each other and forgiven each other, bored each other, after you've seen the worst and the best - well that sort of love is ineffable. It deserves its own word.
