Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Read and enjoyed Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (for the most part). It got a little unbelievable at parts, which is a shame, because there are jaw dropping scenes and twists throughout the book.

Currently reading Life After Life by Kate Atkinson.

On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war.

Does Ursula's apparently infinite number of lives give her the power to save the world from its inevitable destiny? And if she can -- will she?
Absolutely riveting so far. I wish I didn't have to suffer through work so I could just go home and finish it.
