Life after Life by Kate Atkinson- Book Review

Life after Life by Kate Atkinson was on my to-be-read list of 2014. So it was a pleasant surprise when I received it as a gift and I started 2015 with it. The plan for this year is to read great works, especially those I have not gotten to read till now. Life after Life is definitely a step in that direction.
Life after Life was an excellent read that keeps you hooked through the 600 odd pages. The theme of getting multiple chances to relive a life is something I found quite appealing. The characters -the main ones- were very likeable and their choices seemed justified. The back-and-forth trips in time did not hinder the narrative and did not seem forced. The writing was beautiful and was laced with wit, humour and an occasional dose of cynicism.
