Book Review: Kate Atkinson's Life After Life a Lesson in Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda

Talk about living with regret.

Kate Atkinson takes her inventive writing to the next level with Life After Life—a formidable, engaging take of a young woman, born over and over and over in February of 1910. Ursula Todd is on a mission—and even she isn't quite privy to it. With each and every life, she faces death. Sometimes gruesome, always sad, Ursula is "reborn" into the same life with a residue of the knowledge she learned from the previous one—which helps her escape her previous fate.

Life After Life isn't a light read—you need to pay attention to the details, as characters, places, dates and times all link to one another throughout Ursula's different lives. And .... the rest of the review is right here.
