I, Uta, have already read the book and agree, that it is “infectiously good” and that this novel may be in my head months after I have finished reading it. So I am here going to copy what was published last year in the Huffington Post about this book “What Alice Forgot” by Australian author Liane Moriarty. This copied review was written by Julia Naughton. While reading this book, I thought all the time that it is very suitable for being made into a movie. I hope, I’ll soon have a chance to see the movie.
Here now is the copy taken from the above link:
The anticipation of waiting for the film release of a book you cherish can sometimes be too much.
What if they cast the protagonist with an actor you hate? Or worse, they change the ending?
Blame it on the two-hour time limit or the soulless pursuit of box office cred, changing the plot happens all the time and sometimes, it’s really not fair.
The good news? These books are not only qualified to be on your cherished list, but you’ll only have to wait a few months for the movie, one year at most.
Sadly, we can’t vouch for how true they’ll stay to the book, but as far as we can tell, the actors already confirmed get our tick of approval.
By Liane Moriarty
Movie release: 2017
Imagine if you woke up one day only to realise you’d lost a big chunk of your memory from the past decade? Set in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Liane Moriarty’s What Alice Forgot centres around Alice, whose last memory was being pregnant with her first child and completely head over heels in love with her husband, Nick. Now, years later Nick looks at her with disdain, she’s lost contact with her sister (who is going through her own infertility struggles) and is lost as to where it all went wrong. With hopeful vulnerability, Alice, who is living in the mind of her 29-year-old self surprises her husband, kids and later, even herself as she desperately tries to salvage her marriage. Infectiously good, this novel will be in your head months after you’ve finished it.
