    Has anyone read this book?

    I'm almost done and it's very, VERY good.

    I just saw this as one of the hot reads of the year. On my list to get.

    Do it! I didn't like it for the first 30 pages or so. But boy am I glad I stuck it out!

    I bought it a while back but it's still in my never ending to be read pile. (That's a good problem to have though. :))

    @Shasta Thanks for the tip - I loved Case Histories by this author and have been wondering if this one would be any good.

    In a side note Atkinson has said that she didn't enjoy writing the Brody books, and was sorry to finish Life After Life because it was such a joy to work on.

    Well, that does make sense because it definitely could have been a little shorter!
