Life After Life

in
Not only is this the winner of the Costa award - it is also a very good read and a remarkable book! My first impressions were that the book is like a cross between Groundhog Day and Sliding Doors - and so it is! But Life after Life is so much more, it's the story of a girl who somehow can live her life over again and by changing small details manage to change major events, not necessarily to history, but to her own life, and those close to her - but some things are too difficult to change no matter how many times you try.   Kate Atkinson is a brilliant author, and she has captured the lives and thoughts of a family during the first half of the 20th century so well. I am amazed by her ideas and her beautiful grasp of the English language. Maybe her characters aren't all loveable, but they're certainly very interesting! A hugely enjoyable read, and a book that will stay with me for a long time!
