    I wanted to like this book I wish I could enjoy it I bought it with such enthusiasm, and couldn t wait to start reading it But alas, I sensed almost at the very start that it wasn t going to be a happy relationship a point confirmed by mid way through the book.The length, the repetitive scenes, the incredible number of times Ursula dies and is reborn, are all tedious and terrible torment to get through 2 3rds in, I found mys

    kate atkinson has written a lovely, accordion fold of a novel here.this is not a jackson brodie novel, which are always much better than your typical detective novels, even though i haven t read the last one yet merp , but this one is just so muchambitious in scope and style than even those gems it is sublime.at its most simplistic, it is about ursula, a c...

    DECEMBER 2013Paul Bryant had really only just started driving back home, was still trying with his left hand to jam the seat belt buckle into its lock, and multitasking like mad he was thinking about how to review Life After Life, and probably getting too caught up in the various amusing ways it could be done, so that he simply didn t notice the car poking far too far out of the side street When finally he did, he had to swerve like crazy

    Ursula Todd is born in the midst of a blizzard in 1910, not once, but many times, during the course of her life living only to die and be born again, repeatedly, traveling many paths until she lives the life she was meant to live.Kate Atkinson s writing is superb, and lyrical enough that it carried me through to the end of this book The plot, however, left me floundering for weeks, trying desperately to claw my way to the end of this depressing

    Oh dear dear dear dear dear Obviously I m on another planet to all the other reviewers here, but try as I might, I simply had to give up on page 265and call it a day.The concept of constant re births and lives was a good one but sadly, for me,the incidents throughout were so tame and tepid, and the characters that popped into Ursula s lives were so boring, I m afraid the whole thing was like watching paint dry.Remember that feeling of rushing to get ba

    I m pretty sure the idea of being forced to live my life over and over again is something plucked from my worst nightmares, but who among us hasn t been at least tempted to dream of it occasionally with a wistful sigh Please, please, please, just onechance to live the best moments again and when necessary, to make different choices But I would imagine if any of us were actually tasked to unravel all the right and wrong choices from our l...

    So much great writing and characterization Such an interesting premise and structure Wonderful use of humor and irony thank you, Teresa throughout Remarkable depictions of The Blitz I want to give this book 5 stars But I can t A bit of editing would have helped but that s a quibble It s very difficult to go back over the same territory over and over again and keep it interesting Atkinson did this amazingly well, tho there were moments of, oh not this again The real

    This book is so painfully fantastic, I m going to kind of ignore the fact that it stops making sense at the end Is there a word that simultaneously means achingly lovely frustratingly confusing Ursula Todd is born in 1910 with her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck dies without ever drawing breath Ursula Todd is born in 1910 with her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck The doctor cuts the cord Ursula grows to age five, when she drowns in the ocean on holiday Ursula

    I m embarrassed to say I didn t really understand this book I m a huge Kate Atkinson fan and I think she s one of the most creative writers I ve ever read And I loved the idea of this book Ursula is born, dies, and is born again, living different sometimes very different versions of her life over and over again One of my problems is that there didn t seem to be any rules like there usually are in books about time travel and other magical occurrences Sometime Ursula ...
