Life After Life

Cover: 'Life After Life'

Staff Review: "Life After Life" by Kate Atkinson


Ursula Todd is born in England on a cold February night in 1910, with a very unique ability, to live, die, and be born again in a continuous cycle. Ursula falls into this pattern unaware at first, then with a sort of permanent deja vu, and eventually with acceptance. It is a tale of love, loss, war, and the power to take control of one's life. This novel raises the question, "What if you could live again and again, until you got it right?" Original, insightful, and thought provoking, this is definitely a unique and enjoyable reading experience.
