Do you read fiction much? I usually only read non-fiction and business books, but I do love to read fiction, when I have time. Recently a friend lent me a book by an Australian author, Liane Moriarty, called “What Alice Forgot”. It was a big book, but I read it in two nights. It was brilliant! The story was of a woman who has an accident and loses her memory.
When the woman wakes up from her concussion, she has lost 10 years of her memory. She believes that she is 29, newly married, very in love with her husband and pregnant with their first child…
In reality, she is 39, unhappy, has three kids and is separated from her husband, with a divorce on the way!! When she goes home from the hospital, she meets her three children that she has no memory of, and her husband is not living there as they are separated. It was a fascinating story of how she recovers and gets her memory back bit by bit.
I won’t spoil it and tell you what happened – If you’d like the challenge of reading a novel in English, I highly recommend this book.
