This review is from: What Alice Forgot (Hardcover)
What a lovely book - enjoyable to read, yet it sneaks up on you to make you really think about your own life. It's hard to put down; I was so interested in finding out what would happen when Alice's memory returned. Moriarty does a great job at feeding the reader tidbits of information as the story progresses, keeping the reader engaged. But the real strength of the book it that it leads one to think about one's own life: what would the me of 10 years ago (or 20 or 30 years?) think of the me now? How do marriages that begin so absolutely lovely end up with people hating one another? What if just one of the couple can look at the other with eyes from the start of the relationship? How can we find a way to accept and forgive each other? And, how can the old me and current me integrate to find the best of each? So, I loved this book and would recommend it to everyone.
