Review: Case Histories



Case Histories by Kate Atkinson

This book received lots of critical acclaim and praise, and sounded really intriqueing from the dust jacket. Three seemingly unrelated mysteries, one detective, and a twisted tale of family, death and honesty.

When you get to it, though, it's just really weird. Strange premise, stranger characters, uneven writing, and a constant feeling of being offkilter. I'm sure this novel is right up someone's alley, but unfortunately, not mine. I was initially intriqued, but found myself skimming and saying "let's just finish already!".

A lukewarm reception from me...
