Life After Life
If you had the chance to relive you life over and over until you got it right, would you? If you could go back and not do the same mistakes, choose a different path and grab the opportunities you missed the last time, would you?
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson is exactly that. We follow Ursula Todd as she experiences her life multiple times, each time a little differently. As the story progresses and Ursula discovers that she is in fact reliving her life, she begins to experiment with the paths she takes and discovers that her choices not only affects her but also has an influence on how other people will live their lives. Even the course of history is affected.
This is a wonderful story that is beautifully written. I found myself neglecting everything else just to finish this book. This definitely my favourite novel from Kate Atkinson and I would suggest it to anyone.
“Ursula craved solitude but she hated loneliness, a conundrum that she couldn’t even begin to solve.”
― Kate Atkinson, Life After Life
