Book of the month for July: What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

  • Jul 30, 2013 · 7:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

A “cheerfully engaging”* novel for anyone who’s ever asked herself, “How did I get here?” Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child. So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over — she’s getting divorced, , she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over…

    Lovely to see you all (and some new faces :) tonight. The "sister" book I couldn't think of earlier (for those of you sitting near me) is The Silver Star by Jeannette Walls. Maybe for a future book club?

    I just signed up so I probably don't have time to read the book by Tuesday but I'd love to come for August!

    I have been wanting to join this group for some time, but the meetings are always held on evenings when I am taking courses at McMaster. Next week - when this meeting is held - is my final exam. I'm sad to miss this Meetup, but I look forward to meeting everyone next month when I can finally take part!

    Just finshed the book - at 1 o'clock in the morning! Loved it. Really got me thinking... what would it be like to forget the last 10 years?

    What a coincidence! Just started reading this. Can't say that I love the style so hopefully the story will make up for it.
