Wishlist Wednesday: Life After Life, Kate Atkinson

Wishlist Wednesday is a weeklies hosted by Pen to Paper. As I have enough wishes when it comes to books I decided to join this weekly and tell you about them. I am obviously curious about the books on your wishlist too so feel free to leave a message.

Life After Life Kate Atkinson cover
On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born, the third child of a wealthy English banker and his wife. Sadly, 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 any number of ways. Clearly history (and Kate Atkinson) have plans for her: In Ursula rests nothing less than the fate of civilization.

Beautiful title and very interesting synopsis. This is no in my usual comfort zone but I am still very much attracted to this book. And I am not sure why. Still have a bit to wait for it to be released though. But I am very curious about this book and what other people will say on it once it is released.

I've read one Kate Atkinson book (Behind the Scenes at the Museum) and have always meant to read more. This one sounds really intriguing!

I can't decide if this sounds fascinating or pretentious. Either way, I like the cover. Enjoy!
