e-Staff Picks: Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

Jenn says: “I can’t decide if this is a profoundly hopeful book or a profoundly depressing book, but either way, once I had picked it up I couldn’t put it back down. Ursula Beresford Todd’s life is normal enough on the surface — except for the fact that she keeps repeating it. Does life in fact have a goal? Can we truly change our future? Life After Life is ambitious both in structure and in theme, and Atkinson pulls it off. Good for both historical fiction buffs and sci-fi (particularly time travel/parallel universe) fans.”

The red rose knows.
