What Alice Forgot

While attending the Book Expo in NYC, I had the pleasure of going to a panel discussion featuring Liane Moriarty. As a fan of her writing, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to her talk about her books and her life. She was so charming and entertaining it made me want to read more of her work. What Alice Forgot tells the story of Alice, a young women in her late thirties who wakes up with amnesia and realizes she can't remember the past ten years of her life. Her marriage is in disrepair, she doesn’t know her own children, and many of her relationships with family and friends have drastically changed. I felt for Alice and her sense of confusion as she discovers herself ten years in the future. I couldn’t help but reflect on my younger self and the steadfast ideals I held at one time. This book sends a strong message about priorities and how people can easily sway from their original values. Staying true to one's beliefs is not always easy for all. The story is both thought-provoking and entertaining, with excellent character development. It offers many topics for discussion and would make an excellent book club selection. I look forward to reading more from this author.Back.
