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.

    "The ultimate sliding doors"

    Viewing the second WW from many angles made me cry and laugh. The authors managed humor in her writing, keeping a historical event present, reminding us of the atrocities we must never forget.

    Story
    "Didn't feel satisfied by the ending"

    I enjoyed this book in many ways, and it was chosen for a book group which was a perfect setting as I felt it needed the discussion we gave it. The main theme through the book, that our lives are impacted on by small decisions we make, was an interesting one. Initially slow starting, this book did gain momentum. I liked the verbal cues given to indicate that life was starting again (the darkness and the snow). This provided a useful prompt if you were getting confused, which was easily done in this book as time flitted around a little.

    I found the childhood years a little frustrating as they were short (by nature of the fact they were childhood!) and so it felt a little repetitive at the beginning of the book, but that's just a personally thing. I found the years set during WWII the most interesting. They described a bleak London, during the Blitz, which is often overlooked in books set during that era. Whilst it was a grim reality, I could picture it well and I felt it really added to the story, although at times, it felt a little more repetitive than it needed to be.

    This is a book that deserves your full attention, otherwise you will be easily left behind. It was a perfect choice for a book club, as all of us had our own opinions on the ending and what we thought had happened. I wont talk about that here as I don't want to spoil it, but I would encourage everyone to talk to friends and fellow readers about this book once they've finished it!

    Story
    "A very tedious affair"

    A very long tedious and pointless read, not sure why the author thought it was necessary to repeat so much of the story - this is a rather fanciful plot to kill Hitler - not recommend even if you have loads of time and are extremely board.

    "Simply brilliant"

    Lots of people have written reviews of this book, I will allow those same people the privilege to write a detailed review
    I can say, it is brilliant from first to last, the story is detailed and engrossing, the narration is captivating
    I can recommend without hesitation, I envy those who have not listened to it and are about to, the joy of it is all ahead for you

    "Absorbing and thought provoking."

    This is a great book in that it amuses, entertains and intrigues all at the same time.
    It has provoked much discussion in my house starting with "what if .."
    I really enjoyed it.

    "Brilliant!!"

    Absolutely wonderful from beginning to end! The reading was fantastic and the story compulsive. Had to read A God in Ruins straight after which was equally brilliant!
