Just finished this and can‘t wait to discuss it with @litsybookclub it was so good! Had me captivated from the start. Loved the characters and a hell of a story. Eve is a total badass!

Kathrin This one is next on my audio TBR. I am glad to read that you like it... I wasn't sure, if I would read this one, because I just finished a WWII book and there is only so much that I can take back to back on the topic. 1mo
SoniaC @Kathrin it really spoke to me. I think it was because of how much I enjoyed the three main characters. The narrator is good so I‘m glad you got the audio. Hope you enjoy it. There is a lot of talk about war but hoped that doesn‘t detract from your enjoyment. 1mo
Daisey @SoniaC @Kathrin I‘m about 3 hours from the end of the audio and agree it is so good! I really didn‘t want to stop listening when I got home from my drive this evening, but I will have to wait until tomorrow. 1mo

Started this one today for the @litsybookclub it sure starts out big!

Kathrin I just bought it on Audible because my library hold will not come through in time for the book club. 2mo
SoniaC @Kathrin hope you‘re enjoying it. I‘m completely engrossed. 2mo
Kathrin @SoniaC I am torn. On the one hand I can't put it down, but at the same time, I really find the torn storyline confusing. Also, I feel like she is packing every single issue around abortion into the story. 2mo
SoniaC @Kathrin it does feel like she is loading the story with issues. I think she didn‘t leave a single thing out. 2mo

Life After Life: A Novel | Kate Atkinson

This is a beautifully written but in many ways devastating book. I loved the unique way of storytelling but it‘s very heavy at points.

BookNAround I listened to this one in the car and was so grateful I‘d read something about the restarting over and over again or I might have thought the audio was glitchy! But it was an amazing book to listen to and really highlighted Atkinson‘s intentional repetition. 3mo
SoniaC @BookNAround oh I bet it was interesting on audio! 3mo

This was a fascinating book. Still trying to take it all in. Really unique characters and quite sad at most points. It felt bleak.

Just finished this one up on audible. It wasn‘t really my cup of tea. I struggle with these books I consider broken women thrillers. I can absolutely see why people who enjoy these types of reads would love it though and by the end I had gotten some investment.
