Case Histories by Kate Atkinson

Fiction-Net Rating 3 Star Rated Book

Cambridge is sweltering, during an unusually hot summer. To Jackson Brodie, former police inspector turned private investigator, the world consists of one accounting sheet - Lost on the left, Found on the right - and the two never seem to balance.

According to another Fiction-Net reviewer, Kate Atkinson has an "innovative style" and her previous novel Emotionally Weird earned a respectable four-star rating. Observant readers will have already spotted that Case Histories has been awarded a more modest three-star rating. The main problem is that it's just too messy. Events are eventually sort of connected but only because the author has decided to connect them before the book finishes, not apparently out of any logical link.

Emotionally Weird by Kate Atkinson - Book Review

Emotionally Weird by Kate Atkinson

Fiction-Net Rating 4 Star Rated Book

On a peat and heather island off the west coast of Scotland, Effie and her mother Nora take refuge in the large mouldering house of their ancestors and tell each other stories. But strange things are happening. Why is Effie being followed? Is someone killing the old people? And where is the mysterious yellow dog?

Kate Atkinson throws out a challenge to her readers. She has broken the rules but wants you enjoy the rebellion with her. And I did. The results are intriguing, funny and effective.
