Couldn't finish it.

I was gripped for the first 2 chapters. But it went downhill from there. The story just spiralled into a mishmash of different people talking then thinking then backtracking and remembering. There were too many unbelievable extra people and coincidences to feel any connection to anyone. I wanted to know how it ended for one or two of the characters but couldn't be bothered wading through the inconsequential minutia of non significant characters to complete the book.

Good story spoilt by pantomime voices

I love Kate Atkinson and have read all her books. Although this story was good (not as good as her others) I felt the narrator spoilt the whole experience by using silly women voices that sounded like bad pantomime. Louise Munro and Joanna Hunter especially. They sounded more like Widow Twanky. Although the story has some comic moments, it is not a comedy but it was narrated so badly that it was rendered silly. The other narrators who read 'A God In Ruins' for example was exactly 'right'.
