Book 11 of 2017 is Life After Life by Kate Atkinson.
This book has been on my To Read list for quite some time. It turns up a lot on "best books of the year" lists. I can not for the life of me work out why.
The idea is good. It is a WWII Groundhog Day but in the end, I couldn't like the main character or her family. One thing I will say is that the first half of the book was thoroughly boring. The second half almost redeemed it but is it ever worth sticking with it?
2 alternative lives out of 5.
Should I read this? No, don't.
What did I learn? Nothing is perfect. No life is perfect. I'd rather just do it once.
