Publisher's Summary

What if you had the chance to live your life again and again, until you finally got it right?

During a snowstorm in England in 1910, a baby is born and dies before she can take her first breath. During a snowstorm in England in 1910, the same baby is born and lives to tell the tale.

What if there were second chances? And third chances? In fact an infinite number of chances to live your life? Would you eventually be able to save the world from its own inevitable destiny? And would you even want to?

Life After Life follows Ursula Todd as she lives through the turbulent events of the last century again and again. With wit and compassion, she finds warmth even in life’s bleakest moments, and shows an extraordinary ability to evoke the past. Here is Kate Atkinson at her most profound and inventive, in a novel that celebrates the best and worst of ourselves.

    Story
    "Book club August"

    Harrowing in parts particularly the domestuc violence and child deaths. Evocative - the descriptions of the bombing raids were vivid but not sensationalist. Sometimes confusing - which is the nature if the style which itself was quite an interesting concept. Does anyone have the chance to live their life over again? Would read again .

    Story
    "A fantastic listen"

    This is a compelling story - and one that repeats! As Ursula's life takes different routes the history of the first half of 20th century is reflected in her personal experiences. The book is made by the brilliant narrator who managed to deal with the many characters with subtle changes that are consistent throughout.

    Story
    "A wonderful telling of life and war"

    Perhaps the best book/audiobook I have read/listened to this year. This is far more than just a reworking of Groundhog Day or reincarnation, it's a beautiful, clever examination of the first half of the twentieth century, the horrors of war, and of causes and consequences. A joy.

    "Too long and a disappointing ending"

    Well written and good story, but no point to it. A better ending would have helped.

    Story
    "One groundhog day too far"

    Struggled to maintain interest over the length of the book and was rather puzzled by the ending which wasn't. Impressed with the narration however.

    Story
    "Clever"

    A very cleverly constructed novel, with periods of time re-lived over and over again. You really get to know the main characters. Great narration. A little long winded in places, but would recommend.

    Story
    "Dragged on and depressing"

    I wanted to know if something amazing happened in the end so I persevered with this book. It was very well narrated and well written but I just didn't get on with the story personally. I like to be gripped by a story and unfortunately I wasn't by this, just was mildly curious.
