First, let me say that I think Kate Atkinson is a really good writer and have loved all of the books of hers that I have previously read (works from 2004 onwards). This one simply didn't interest me in either its characters or the storyline. The author's note at the end was the best bit and the most interesting. I can't imagine how hard it is to write a good book and I think 1 miss out of so many hits is to be expected. I hope Kate goes on to write more works, Jackson Brodie or otherwise.

Kate Atkinson's books are ALL treasures, in my opinion. They can be complex (this one is in some respects) if you aren't paying attention, but it's worth the time and effort to follow this story with all its repercussions. Excellent book. Interesting and authentic characters. Loved it!
