Books by Australian Author Liane Moriarty

I just copied a review of a book by Liane Moriarty and published it here:

https://auntyuta.com/2017/06/18/what-alice-forgot-by-liane-moriarty/

In the review it was said that the novel “What Alice Forgot” is going to be made into a movie to be released in 2017. I have already read this novel and I do hope that I soon may be able to see this movie, when it comes out this year.

Apparently there are also some other books by Liane Moriarty that might be made into movies:

So far the only other book by Liane Moriarty that I’ve read is:

Truly Madly Guilty

The following is taken from a review about Truly Madly Guilty:

“IF ONLY THEY’D SAID NO…

Clementine is haunted by regret. It was just a barbeque. They didn’t even know their hosts that well, they were friends of friends. They could so easily have said no.

But she and her husband Sam said yes, and now they can never change what they did and didn’t do that Sunday afternoon.

Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One playful dog. It’s an ordinary weekend in the suburbs. What could possibly go wrong?

Marriage, sex, parenthood and friendship: Liane Moriarty takes these elements of our lives and shows us how guilt can expose the fault lines in any relationship, and it is not until we appreciate the fragility of life that we can truly value what we have.”

In both books by Liane Moriarty that I have read so far, Liane depicts people that live in contemporary Sydney. What she writes about the characters’ Australian lifestyle seems very true to me. It makes me think about the way we live and what our priorities are. I am quite a bit older now than most of Liane’s characters. And I am a migrant to Australia who settled here nearly sixty years ago. As migrants my family had overall somewhat different lifestyle experiences from Liane’s characters on the North shore of Sydney. Still, a lot of the problems she describes in her books, problems that families may come up with, seem to be universal. I think the author herself is a young married woman with two young children. She would know first hand how demanding but also joyful marriage and the raising of young children usually is.  Often in a young marriage there is a lack of time to do the things together that bind together. And all too often the stresses of modern life may lead to divorce and great upheaval for the children.

 

 

“What Alice Forgot” by Liane Moriarty

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.

“You mean, you haven’t read the book?!”

​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.

What Alice Forgot

Amy Einhorn Books

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.
