Notes:
Kate Atkinson's 'Life After Life' explored the possibility of infinite chances, as Ursula Todd lived through the turbulent events of the last century again and again. In 'A God in Ruins', Atkinson turns her focus on Ursula's beloved younger brother Teddy - would-be poet, RAF bomber pilot, husband and father - as he navigates the perils and progress of the 20th century. For all Teddy endures in battle, his greatest challenge will be to face living in a future he never expected to have.

worth reading if you've read "Life after life", which is an altogether better book, though. My abiding feeling about "God in ruins" is that there are more characters to dislike than there are to like, whereas the reverse was the case with "Life". Ms Atkinson writes well, and with feeling; her characters are well-portrayed and developed - I just don't like many of them this time around. Basically - read "Life after life"....
