¸ The Liberation of Alice Love ä Download by ¸ Abby McDonald Why This is a rewrite of a Friends episode when Monica s identity gets stolen I found myself annoyed that she didn t just turn Ella in versus obsessing over how much exciting her imagined life wasridiculous I find it very hard to believe than anyone who had their identity stolen to this degree would just be so forgiving. The Liberation of Alice Love is the story of a woman named Alice of course who is leading a very ordinary, reliable life Until she realizes that someone has stolen her identity, her life savings, and has run up thousands of dollars worth of bills And then Alice s life becomes anything besides ordinary as she begins to hunt for the person behind all of this And along the way she starts to realize that maybe life can be extraordinary as well. So the premise of this book is a good one in my opinion Alice is in a rut with her life when the story begins, so when she discovers that her identity has been stolen and misused it throws her for a loop But as she begins to hunt for the thief, she also begins to take a few chances while making some life changes as well I liked Alice s character There were times when I wanted her to stand up for herself but I liked that she was beginning t Delicious In So Many Ways, You Ll Find This One Hard To Put Down Laura Dave, Author Of The Divorce Party And London Is The Best City In America Alice Love Keeps Her Life And Job, And Family Running In Perfect Order, So When Her Bank Card Is Declined, She Thinks It S Just A Mistake Sadly, Someone Has Emptied Her Bank Account, Spending Her Savings On Glamorous Trips, Sexy Lingerie, And A To Die For Wardrobe And Leaving Alice With Lots Of Debt As A Dashing Fraud Investigator Helps Her Unravel The Intriguing Paper Trail, Alice Discovers That The Thief Is Closer To Home Than She Ever Imagined What S , It Seems Like Her Alter Ego S Reckless, Extravagant Lifestyle Is The One Alice Should Have Been Leading All Along As The Little White Lies Begin To Stack Up, How Far Will Alice Go To Find The Truth And Whose Life, Exactly, Is She Fighting For Refreshing, Fun, And Sexya Perfect Beach read Closer This gets a rare one star rating from me Alice Love is eating lunch with a friend when her credit card is declined She figures it s just a mix up with the bank as she s had trouble with that card before She goes online to check her account and is stunned to find out that her account is in overdraft It turns out that her so called good friend Ella, has stolen her identity The banks tell Alice there isn t a lot they can do for her, but her brother in law Stefan who is married to her step sister Flora, has connections and hires Nathan, a cute American to help Alice track down Ella. The Liberation of Alice Love was a hard book for me to get through I just had a hard time connecting with Alice and some of her actions To find out where Ella went, and how she did what she did, Alice starts going through each receipt shown on her account and visits every step Alice Love is a lawyer at a talent agency who keeps her life in perfect order When she becomes a victim of identity theft, her life is suddenly thrown into chaos To make matters worse, the perpetrator is someone Alice had thought was a close friend Feeling betrayed and depressed, Alice is determined to hunt down the identity thief and uncover the reasons behind why she was the thief s target She has help from a charming fraud investigator along the way. I liked this book a lot It was refreshing to read a British chick lit book that had an intelligent heroine that I didn t want to strangle for most of the book unlike Shopaholic, etc As Alice goes further down the path looking for the thief and realizes what a seemingly carefree life the thief lives Alice goes through a personal journey slight spoilers Alice Love is completely obsessive when it comes to keeping her career and life as organized as possible, so when her debit card is declined for a small amount, she is sent into a tailspin It comes to light that an old, so called, friend has stolen her identity which opens up a whole new world for Alice Alice is honest, forthright and a bit shy, so she can t even begin to imagine that anyone would take advantage of her This forces her to examine her life lived in detail and confront the thief This story is about how faced with the absurdity of fate, once can develop into a stronger and self resilient person. This story could have been ripped from the headlines since identity theft is such a common problem these days that can totally damage a person both mentally and financially Alice has b Loved it The book made me laugh, cringe, hold my breath and got my heart racing since the boo is set and written by an English author, some of the phrases were lost to me but it did not take away from the story in any way I can relate ti Alice in a few ways She has always done everything the way she is supposed to, is very responsible and try s to please everyone When she starts the let go of some of her own rules she feels powerful and love s the thrill I also liked that it had a little love story to go along. I m NOT a big romance novel kinda girl I couldn t but the book down and it kept me guessing till the end Well, the blurb on the back cover gives the illusion this book will be better than it actually is I just had so many issues with the protagonist Alice She did so many things I think most of us wouldn t do Like, maybe trace the identity thief s steps and even assume her identity Get herself arrested, among others I also disliked the ending I read the whole book for that Ok I m changing this from 2 stars to just 1 star I m getting pissed all over again.
One star for idea, 0 that s zero for execution That s all I m willing to give I feel cheated by this book I devoted a lot of time to its 343 pages and didn t get anything in return It was a freebie on my Nook so what did I expect Liberation actually gets off to a good start Mousy, reliable Alice Love is a lawyer working for a talent agency She is ignored, humiliated, and taken advantage of And that s just at her job She has little private life to speak of Then Alice s identity and her life s savings are stolen by someone she would never have suspected Alice becomes obsessed with locating her friend As she traces her steps, she finds herself longing to live the extravagant life that this woman is living The Goodreads description is better than the book itself So here s the first of my many complaints There are several scenes in here that are virtually lifted Alice Love is a stickler when it comes to keeping her life and finances in order so when her bank card is declined, she thinks it s just a simple clerical error However when Alice goes to see a mortgage advisor so she can put down a deposit on a flat of her own, Alice learns that not only was her card being declined not a mistake but that all of her bank accounts have been emptied and her debts now run to thousands of pounds After having a mini crisis, Alice enlists the help of a fraud investigator, Nathan, to help her discover just who it is that has stolen her identity and plunged her into so much despair As Alice and Nathan follow the clues to uncovering the thief, Alice finds that instead of being repulsed by
