A God in Ruins relates the life of Teddy Todd – would-be poet, heroic World War II bomber pilot, husband, father, and grandfather – as he navigates the perils and progress of the 20th century. For all Teddy endures in battle, his greatest challenge will be to face living in a future he never expected to have.

9 out of 10

A very well written and touching novel telling Teddy Todd's life through the years. His experiences as World war II bomber pilot really went under skin ad one bit has firmly stuck to my mind - when he couldn't sleep instead of counting sheep he was listing all the cities he had bombed in the war....Essen, Koeln, Duisburg, Hamburg, Bremen, Berlin and my hometown Duesseldorf. Very poignant, very moving . I really felt for and with all the characters and as always Kate Atkinson manages to make them all so real and so human ! Fantastic read !
