Life After Life: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Kate Atkinson

Narrated By: Fenella Woolgar

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Date: April 2013

Duration: 15 hours 30 minutes

Summary:

What if you could live again and again, until you got it right?

On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war.

Does Ursula's apparently infinite number of lives give her the power to save the world from its inevitable destiny? And if she can -- will she?

Darkly comic, startlingly poignant, and utterly original -- this is Kate Atkinson at her absolute best.

    This book was challenging in the beginning as its premise is so amazingly fresh. Not your usual storyline! Definitely worth sticking with it as it will change the way you think about time...Love the author's writing style and the narrator was perfect for this piece.

    This has a very odd plot - the main character keeps dying a being reborn in the same life. I've never read anything quite like it. It kept my interest. The writing was good, the characters were believable. Not exactly a page turner, but a very nice book
