A God In Ruins | Kate Atkinson

Another wonderful novel by Kate Atkinson. I have always enjoyed her books, and this one is superb. It is a stand alone book although one could also read it as a companion book to Life After Life. The same characters are the protagonists although Teddy is the focus in this one, as Ursula was in the other one.

This is the life of Teddy going back and forth from present to past, not in chronological order but in as he has memories of people in his past and present:  his relationships with the War, his bomber squadron, his wife Nancy, daughter Viola and grandkids.

The narrative is seamless and wanders through various character's lives and thoughts in a very skilled and readable style.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, and highly recommend it, and all her other novels.
