*Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

British author.
First published 2013

She was born, she lived, she died and was born a new.  Repeat. And again. Once more. No, let's do it again. And again. Repeat. Really?

Atkinson's concept is great, yet not fully developed. As a result her book is extremely tedious. Each death and rebirth move the story forward very little. Character development is all but absent. It felt like Atkinson did not know what direction to take so she included all of them with little thought regarding progression.  This could have been a phenomenal story, but it was not.

Repeat.
