Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. Fantastic book so wonderfully written. It mostly takes place in London during World War II and was the perfect thing to read before a visit to London and the Churchill War Rooms.
The chapter on hours to become an expert in anything is very interesting. Look at the Beatles, Bill Gates, etc. Then you will find out that somebody has become an expert because they have been doing it for quite some time,
"What will we know better about tomorrow? Who cares? Hindsight is useless." -Ellen Hopkins, Crank Pretty raw and powerful novel. The writing style is quite different and it makes for a quick read. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
Before I Go To Sleep by S. Watson - "As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I'm still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me.
