I enjoyed this immensely, especially for the originality of the narration and timeline.

Sending to dancing-dog for the bookobsessed Nov. Reading Divas. Enjoy!

Wish I had gotten to this sooner - it was a fun and quirky tale about a dysfunctional British family - I really liked Ruby. My only complaint is that it took me a while to get used to the switching from present day to past history but it did give one a bigger view of why the family was the way they were! Some parts were very amusing while some were rather poignant. This book rather grew on me.

I think I may need to take a class on "How and Why Books are Named" --the title of this book really had me thinking hard about how it related to the characters in the story (and ultimately to how it might relate to people in general and myself in particular). I'm still not sure if I got it "right" or not, but it was an interesting think!

The story itself was interesting to read, as we see the first-person writing style change and develop as the narrator, Ruby, ages. I kind of missed her childish, bombastic
"Here I am!" pronouncements towards the end of the book :-) The author seemed to feel the need to carry the story on a little longer than I felt was necessary--the last few chapters could have been omitted IMHO without losing any sense of having completed the story. But I really enjoyed seeing the world through Ruby's eyes and wouldn't hesitate to pick up another book by Kate Atkinson. Thanks for sharing.

After 3 years waiting on the shelf to be selected I have decided that this book needs to travel on in the hopes of finding a new reader.
