A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson

agodinruinsThis is Atkinson’s ‘companion piece’ to Life after Life- not quite a sequel, as it runs alongside that book. It is wholly exceptional. Heartbreakingly sad, we follow the life of Ursula’s adored younger brother Teddy as he comes to terms with surviving a war he never expected to come through. The structure is unconventional, moving back and forwards through time- and it sometimes takes the reader a moment or two to catch up, but this never detracts from a moving and completely captivating read. The jacket says: “A God in Ruins is a masterful companion to Life After Life , and will prove once again that Kate Atkinson is one of the finest novelists of our age.” and I cannot disagree with that.
