This is a wonderful story that is heart wrenching and relatable. I personally suffered a head injury and had issues with memory but not to the extreme of this character. This is one you won’t be able to put down!
Good story, but there was entirely too much detail. I skipped over a lot of it and had to force myself to finish it.
Honestly one of the best books I have read. Not only do the characters evolve into amazing people, but the book really allows you to acknowledge the things that are most important in life. I was NOT able to put this book down, and I was totally sad when I finished it because I was craving for me! The beginning is a little slow, but the anticipation of what I knew was coming kept me flipping the pages.
We all have different genres we enjoy reading. So first let me be clear, I enjoy the escape of a novel filled with humor, can't put the book down, and storytelling. If you don't care for those types of books then I would say don't waste your time. What I enjoy about Liane's writing style is I personally connect with the characters, finding myself sitting across from them at a coffee shop listening to their story and wanting to cheer them on. Again, if that's not
your type of book then carry on. What Alice Forgot was the first book I ever read by Liane and have fell in love with her writing style. I read a lot of business and science articles so this is a great refresher.
Makes you really think. Loved this book!
It definitely was one I couldn't put down!
I'm drawn to the author because she pulls you in so expertly. Fabulous read!

What a great book. Well written and hard to put down which is a hallmark of all her books. This one adds on the profound question of what if. It makes you want to examine your own life and wonder if you've made toe right decisions along the way.
I was recommended this book by my best friend. I had no idea how this would totally hit home for me. I've been married for 12 years and I know I'm not the woman I was in my 20's. It's easy to let life change you. It's important to grow with your partner and not AWAY from them but it's so hard not to let that happen. We all get caught up with our day to day routines and we tend to take the small things too serious and the important things not serious enough. I enjoyed the glimpse into Alice's life. I felt like I was the one in an accident and found myself appreciating my husband and daughter more. It's a great read.
I seriously lost sleep cuz I couldn't put this book down. She's a great writer who made the characters so real I miss them now that I've finished the book. Made me think---very profound. If only we could see ourselves that objectively without losing our memories! What would we change? Would we like ourselves better "before"?
I've read this book over and over and over again. I love it from the beginning to the fantastic end. I adore the younger Alice and every time I start thinking about her I go back and read it again! I'd give it 10 stars. There are only three books that I can read repeatedly and love them every time. This is one of them.
