Nota de la solapa:

Life after life is a novel that explores the concept of alternate lives and parallel realities. The structure of this novel is unusual. It loops back on itself to describe possible alternate fates and realities for ursula todd. The book begins with an adult ursula assassinating hitler, and then flips back to ursula's birth, where she is stillborn because her umbilical cord is wrapped around her neck. Further loops of her life have her being born healthy and facing death or near-death situations at some point in her life, at which point the novel loops back. The theme of the book is second chances for the dead and the near-dead, evidenced by a toddler ursula who is swept away by the ocean and then reappears later in the narrative. Later loops of her life take her into the second world war, where she repeatedly witnesses the devastation caused by the blitz while working in london for the war office. She sees a direct hit on a bomb shelter in argyll road in november 1940, and begins to experience a strong sense of déjà vu over and over again, which helps her eventually come to realise that she has had previous lives, and decides to try to prevent the war by killing adolf hitler. Life after life was published in 2014 by random house in paperback. Key features: the book won the 2013 costa book awards (novel). The book was also shortlisted for the 2013 orange prize for fiction and as one of the 10 best books of 2013 by the editors of the new york times book review.

Críticas:

"Kate Atkinson’s new novel is a box of delights. Ingenious in construction, indefatigably entertaining, it grips the reader’s imagination on the first page and never lets go. If you wish to be moved and astonished, read it. And if you want to give a dazzling present, buy it for your friends." (Hilary Mantel)

"There aren't enough breathless adjectives to describe Life After Life: Dazzling, witty, moving, joyful, mournful, profound. Wildly inventive, deeply felt. Hilarious. Humane.
Simply put: it's ONE OF THE BEST NOVELS I'VE READ THIS CENTURY." (Gillian Flynn,no1 New York Times author of Gone Girl, and Sharp Objects)

"Truly brilliant...Think of Audrey Niffenegger's The TimeTraveler's Wife or David Nicholl's One Day...[or] Martin Amis's Times Arrow, his rewinding of the Holocaust that was shortlisted for the Booker. Life After Life should have the popular success of the former and deserves to win prizes, too. It has that kind of thrill to it, of an already much-loved novelist taking a leap, and breaking through to the next level...This is a rare book that you want, Ursula-like, to start again the minute you have finished." (Helen Rumbelow The Times)

"What makes Atkinson an exceptional writer – and this is her most ambitious and most gripping work to date – is that she does so with an emotional delicacy and understanding that transcend experiment or playfulness. Life After Life gives us a heroine whose fictional underpinning is permanently exposed, whose artificial status is never in doubt; and yet one who feels painfully, horribly real to us." (Alex Clark Guardian)

"Merging family saga with a fluid sense of time and an extraordinarily vivid sense of history at its most human level. A dizzying and dazzling tour de force." (Amber Pearson Daily Mail)
