Disappointed

by Barbara B on Jun 28, 2013

I like this author, but found that this book I couldn't even read.

Many twists & turns

by Gerbil on May 26, 2011

This is the first Kate Atkinson book I have ever read. It was recommended to me by a friend - I just happened to see him reading the book and inquired about it. I just finished the book - it was excellent and I can't stop thinking about it. The author slowly brings together several stories/mysteries until the loose ends are tied up at the end. Well most of them anyway. There are some things the reader is left to guess at, but that makes the book just more fun and intriguing. To use the cliche, it was a "page turner". I usually don't have time to read a book in one sitting, so it was hard for me to put down, when it was time for me to do something else.

A New Hybrid

by dholmes on Apr 3, 2007

With "Case Histories," Kate Atkinson bridges the good read and the literary read. This is one of the rare books that you read in one sitting, late into the night. I was almost bereft when it was finished--I never wanted it to end. The writing is witty, intelligent, and compassionate; best of all, Kate Atkinson breaks all the formulaic rules for writing compelling mysteries. This is a wondrous book.
