really liked it
bookshelves: fiction

Another cracking good read from Kate Atkinson. I enjoyed her other two Jackson Brodie books but didn't think they were as good as Behind the Scenes as the Museum. This one is. It rattles along with her idiosyncatic combination of humour, murder and mayhem, crazy coincidences, identity switches, and engaging characters. I felt the end fell a little bit flat after all the twists and turns earlier on, which had kept me furiously turning pages. A subplot about a murderous estranged husband seemed unnecessary and out of place, one sympathetic character was bumped off quite gratuitously, and I do wish she would be nicer to Louise and Jackson :) But apart from that, I loved it! Oh, and I hope we meet Reggie again.
