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
    "Clever, concentrate."

    This is such a great book, follows the life of a girl spanning her lifetime a number of times over. A book that you may need to concentrate on slightly more than others to follow exactly where she is & when it is. Heartbreaking in places. Amazingly clever how details of each life links to the next, you could miss some of all the many minute details that link each life together. The reader initially I thought had a "rather toffee posh" voice but it really does suit the book, well read and the characters accents are well done too. Such a thought provoking book, couldn't stop listening had to listen in the car on the way to work. It is, perhaps, the definition of Deja vu!

    "All over the place"

    It was slow with characters I just didn't care about. I really wanted to like it because so many of my friends reccomended it.

    "Soul food"
    What made the experience of listening to Life After Life the most enjoyable?

    can't decide...narration stunningly beautiful,characterisations superb,beautifully written a joy to hear the prose.Description of country and town (London) life the best I've heard.


    What did you like best about this story?

    so moving , thought just another 'war story ' ......this is ,so much more than that.


    What about Fenella Woolgar’s performance did you like?

    faultless,brilliant,I could just list every positive I know.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    so many ....all of Ursula and warmed to Sylvie. Huw ,Teddy ,horrid Maurice,tortured Izzy was a hoot and heartbreaking at the same time. A real insight into the English upperclass,previously thought of as spoilt and immune to tragedy.


    Any additional comments?

    Desperate for more audio books by the narrator......madness there are so few, she's the best. Working my way through Kate Atkinsons titles , but I doubt anything could touch this. I will listen again and again .

    "Interesting & enjoyable"

    I ready this earlier in the year but fancied it as an audiobook as well.

    It's an interesting idea that is well developed, though the middle section of the book is by far my favourite and I have to admit to finding the ending a bit lacklustre. Overall a good read and well narrated.

    Really a delight to listen to. Very well narrated and acted, and an enjoyable story too. Historical fiction and fantasy.

    "Superb in every sense"

    A simply brilliant work superbly narrated by Fenella Woolgar. Rare to combine a literary novel with such clever and intricate narrative. Holds the listener to the end.

    "Never predictable."

    A compelling listen in the 'historical' style the author does so well. Left wanting more.

    "Engrossing book, superb performance"

    Really interesting story (although I was just a teeny bit bored of it by the end) but the narrator was fantastic, I heartily recommend her.
