Anyone read this? I had a hard time getting through it.

There are two new books out with that same title. I've both on my TBR list. Who is the author of the book you're reading.

This one?

It's on my TBR list, too. It looked really good... I hope it doesn't suck!

It's the one by Kate Atkinson. It is good, just had me perplexed and wishing the character would just die already.

I know I sound like such a girlpants but I've read Life After Life and I thought it was OK- I got it because I read "started early, took my dog" and enjoyed it- I know it's probs aimed at the fairer sex but I liked it

Oh and I watched Case Histories on TV *clears throat in a manly fashion* so yeah football, cars, power tools.... I feel better now

I read it and it's got to be one of my top 10 books ever. It really affected me. Loved it! The Jackson Brody series is also great reading. TOTALLY missed it on tv and am so mad!

I'm about 20% into this book and feeling confused. When I finish I'm going to come back to either have someone explain the book to me or discuss it because I found it so good!
