This book is definitely one of the best examples of Kate Atkinson; following the lives and tribulations of the Todd family, this one picks up where the last one left off and focuses solely on Teddy, Ursula’s younger brother who goes on to become a bomber pilot. What makes this book stand out is Kate’s narrative style and the sharp wit that jumps out of the pages at you. The vivid descriptions and the tight story line makes up for a riveting read right from page one until the last page is turned. A definite must read
