Staff Review: LIfe After Life by Kate Atkinson

lifeafterlifeatkI know my friends and colleagues are tired of hearing me gush about this novel. I can’t exactly tell you why I liked it so much. I like the mood and tone of the writing. I started reading Atkinson previous novel “Case Histories,” and I didn’t like it. “Life After Life” was clever and suspenseful. I couldn’t wait to see what happened to Ursula Todd- who had a vague sense that she was experiencing some bazaar Ground Hog day-like existence. Each time Ursula died and I turned to the next chapter, I was rooting for her! I wanted her to make it, even if it was horrific, and sometimes it was. Would I recommend it to a friend? Um, I think I have, and I think they are all sick of me shaking the book in their face, exclaiming ‘READ IT!’  (review by Heather Gayton)
