I didn't want this book to end, which is one reason it took me so long to read it. Another reason is that it was so intense that I had to stop reading and bring myself back to the real world. I found myself chuckling throughout the book despite the pile-up of corpses, both human and pet. Death, the inevitable result of living, comes along as suddenly and as naturally as a rainstorm on a sunny day. Ruby, the main character, is hemmed in by death, yet her wry humor always seems to carry her through.

This is the third Kate Atkinson book I've read. Each of them is better than the last. And even though I didn't want this book to end, when the end came, it was so beautiful that I was ready to put the book down.
