    " I have read many of her books and they have all been good...She tends to have a lot of characters in her books..Need to keep a list to keep track sometimes.. "

    " Excellent book. Some war passages a bit long and boring. Many characters that confuse at time. "

    " Gostei do livro, embora a maior parte dos personagens me tenham parecido um tanto exagerados e a apreciação geral de cada um deles demasiado cáustica. Mas gostei da viagem constante entre o passado e o futuro e dos pormenores acerca da vida em épocas e lugares tão distintos. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 4/1/2011

    " It starts out a bit strange; the cogent, fully self aware narrator has just been conceived. Soon the multi-generational family saga begins to unfold. It is often moving, sometimes funny, but nearly always gripping. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 3/28/2011

    " Really fun, quirky read. Kate Atkinson is offbeat and eloquent. Loved it. "

    " Absolutely wonderful at every level--plot, characters, writing style. It has joined my list of all time favorites. Unfortunately, the two subsequent books I read by this author were not nearly as good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 3/22/2011

    " She's a talented writer, but this has many telltale first novel signposts -- too cute, too overstuffed, too ambitious, too long, too tragic, just too. "

    " I could not follow this book . Very disappointing as I have enjoyed her later books. "
