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
    "Tedious"

    Struggled to get to the end. Concept was clever but wasn't drawn to or able to care about the main protagonist - around which the entire plot revolved.

    Story
    "Timer travelling Jane Austen "

    It's as if Jane Austen was set during the World Wars, could time travel, and was out to kill Hitler. If that intrigues you, it a try, you won't be disappointed. Rest assured that the book is even better structured and written than this review would suggest.

    "Very good"

    It is a good story with some gruesome and at points upsetting content!liked the concept but a little confusing at times to listen to because of the nature of the story!i will probably listen to it again in the future!would recommend it to read rather than listen!

    Story
    "Intriguing & thought provoking"

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this story. It's an enjoyable & thought provoking listen. I certainly looked forward to my commute to & from work. Beautifully written & read. It took me a while to work out what was going on & the ending confused me a little. Overall would recommend this book.

    Story
    "Interesting but I felt the story was lost at times"

    Really enjoyed the historic setting of the book. Characters were likeable and there were definitely some clever parts to the storyline. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first fifteen lives of Harry August which I felt had more purpose about the story. Overall an easy and enjoyable read.

    Story
    "Expertly narrated"

    Not the easiest to follow as an audiobook if you're prone to falling asleep!

    Otherwise a good listen. Enjoyed the characterisation and the muddled narrative. Impressed by the narration.
