By Kate Atkinson
Genre Adult Historical Fiction
A woman is born again and again living the same life during WWI and WWII. Bringing up questions of fate and blah blah blah!
A fug of tobacco smoke and damp clammy air hit her as she entered the cafe.
- Honestly I could just leave that gif and you'd probably get my whole feelings towards this book.
- But I'll share a few thoughts anyway. And hey! I squeezed in another book for my Adult Literarture Month! Looking for a bright side here, people!
- This is my book club's pick for March. Honestly, working my way through this 500+ page book was torture enough. Really not looking forward to talking about it. Especially because I'm pretty sure everyone else will love it. Figures.
- My biggest problem with this book was how boring it was. It's so freaking long and repetitive. Did she really have to live THAT many lives? And every time you get into one life, she dies and it starts all over again! *rolls eyes*
- You can get on your soapbox and talk to me all you want about how deep this book was and how it makes you think about fate and choices but I just don't care. If an author wanted to make me think they should keep me interested and invested enough to give a damn!
- And go ahead and yell at me about how this is about WWI and WWII. Yeah, I know! I read that part like 50 times on repeat! I honestly just stopped caring...if I ever started.
- So, yeah, sorry but this books was slow, boring and repetitive. It was torture to pick it up and finish. If it hadn't been a book club book I would have quit 50 pages in. Not exactly a glowing recommendation, is it?
Should you read it?
Once again, I seem to be alone in my opinion but don't say I didn't warn you about the blow your brains out monotony.
