I’m currently 96 pages into Life After Life. So far, it’s been pretty hard to get into. I know they’re in World War 2 and the main character is supposed to do something to help prevent it. (or at least that’s what I’ve heard) It can be tiring to read because the main character will die of something and then start over again. Why? It can be confusing because sometimes the main character might change other things that happened that didn’t relate to her cause of death.
I really hope this gets cleared up later in the story and hopefully she figures out that her life keeps restarting. I also hope the book will reveal what happened on the first few pages. Did Ursula shoot herself? Did someone shoot her? So far the only thing that really helps me put things together are the dates and the chapter titles.
The chapters titled Snow are the ones in which Ursula restarts her, or at least that’s whats been happening so far. So that means her life will restart about 11 times! I don’t know if I can go through with the rest of this book if her life restarts so much, but for now, I’ll keep reading and see how it goes.
