Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
"This book acted like a vortex that pulled me to its center without making me dizzy. I was mesmerized. It reminded me of the movie "Sliding Doors" in some ways. Parallel lives? Potential lives? Imagined lives? Actual lives? It didn't really matter..." Read more of this review »
