I had heard quite a bit about this book before I finally read it and it had been on my Kindle for a while, so I had high expectations.

The main character is Alice, a 39-year old mother of three in the middle of a divorce, as she wakes up on the floor of her gym having fainted and fallen off her spinning bike. We quickly gather that Alice believes that she is 29-years-old, happily married and pregnant with her first child. It appears that Alice has had a bump on the head and has lost the last ten years of her life.

We then follow Alice as she struggles to understand what her life has become. Past relationships are gone or broken and she doesn’t recognise the person that everyone around her thinks that she is. Alice, her sister Elisabeth and Grandma Frannie are women all experiencing troubles, some more serious than others and it was interesting to get their take on things as they alternate chapters.

The story is revealed to us at the same time as it’s revealed to Alice which is interesting. The book is told in third-person, which I wasn't expecting, but it works well so it wasn't a problem. It's all from Alice's point of view but as well as the usual narrative, there are also diary/journal type entries from Elisabeth which confused me at first but soon makes sense, as well as blog entries from Frannie.

I enjoyed the book overall, although I think that Frannies diaries could have been left out and not be missed. The writing style took a bit of getting used to but was fine after a while. Some parts of the story were not quite believe but I did believe the characters and character interaction. Some of the scenes between Alice and her soon to be ex-husband were powerful, you could feel their connection and I felt for Alice as she understood what she had lost.

Alice is twenty nine, madly in love with her husband and pregnant with their first child. Or so she believes. Alice has just woken up after a head injury at the gym and has lost ten years of her life. Alice is really thirty nine, divorced from her husband and the mother to three children. Alice realises that she is no longer the fun loving woman that she was ten years beforehand but the complete opposite. She's a controlling health freak that is now dating the headmaster at her children's school. However, maybe this knock to the the head was a blessing in disguise? Could the loss of ten years be what it takes to win back both her husband and children's affection as well as returning to the woman that she once was?

I am a huge fan of Liane Moriarty's work and this was no exception. With three different perspective's: Alice's; her sister Elizabeth; and her grandmother Frannie; written in different styles: Alice's is actually the narration; Elizabeth's is letters to her doctor; and Frannie's is a blog entry to her fans; this book is a breath of fresh air against everything else you have read this year. She writes compelling stories that drags you in with every word that she writes. Moriarty's worlds are addictive and can have you completing a story in a matter of days.
My only downfall with this book was that maybe the epilogue was not necessary. Did we really need to know if Alice ended up with the ex-husband or the headteacher? However, I do believe that if we had not found out then maybe some people would have complained about that too. Moriarty found herself in a win-lose situation with that area but despite feeling like it was not necessary, I did finish reading the book with a massive smile on my face.

So not only did this book affirm my love of Liane Moriarty but it also made me get the rest of her books out of the library. How many books have seduced you like that this year?

This is my third Liane Moriarty book but unfortunately this one was nowhere near as good as the other two. Where both The Husbands Secret and Big Little Lies had me gripped throughout, this one left me bored. I don't like any of the main characters and the plot is ridiculous. Who leaves a woman with amnesia home alone and with children she doesn't remember?! I wouldn't recommend this book, there are much better books by this author to be read.

In some ways I actually enjoyed this more than a Husbands Secret. The concept is similar to Sophie Kinsella's Remember Me? but the execution is very different. I enjoyed the story told by the main protagonist, Alice, interspersed with Elisabeth's written "homework" set by her therapist but I found the Grandma's blog very irritating (sorry, skipped a lot of that!) and thought the book could have worked without it.

How scary to wake up from a bang on the head to lose the last 10 years and not know your kids or that you're getting divorced from the love of your life!

It's more a women's fiction book than chick-lit, with infertility playing quite a large part in the story: I thought I should point that out as it may be very relevant to some people.

Overall the story could have been polished more and Grandmas blog dropped but it's not a bad read. It's not such a simple story as I first thought as perception of life can change when your circumstances change.

Just a quick summary of this book, Alice has lost the last 10 years of her life, she doesn’t recognise the person she’s become, doesn’t remember her children, or the person that everyone expects her to be, the tough, confident, fit mother, who’s going through a divorce. She attempts to figure it all out.

Now, I'm normally a thriller/horror genre kind of girl, but this was a nice break, I was absolutely sucked in to this book, there weren’t many sickly sweet moments, it all felt quite natural and not too over the top. I really enjoyed seeing the world through young Alice's eyes, watching her piece herself together, while I was deciding which Alice did I like better, and who would I rather be if I was her.

I did find young Alice irritating, naïve and frustrating at time but in a compelling way, with me urging her to try harder.

I enjoyed it.
