    • Yes, you’d really like it (note that I have started using the Books Leanne Would Like tag on some reviews, so now if you click that tag, it will take you to all the books I think you’s like). Also, have you read The Post-Birthday World by Lionel Shriver? That’s similar (and really good).

  1. I just finished this and agree with you how enjoyable it was. The switching between each version was a bit confusing at times so I found I was mentally rehearsing the story arc for each one. “This is version 1 where Eva and Jim marry and …. then XYZ happens” kind of approach. I also stopped trying to keep track of the peripheral characters and whose child was whom. Would it have been better as three stories told in sequence? For me no, it was the weaving together of the alternative lives that made this remarkable.

  2. How interesting — I just finished a different new book in which the storyline splits and follows the two different outcomes of a single decision. I may need to check this one out so I can compare!

  3. This sounds like a very interesting novel, and right up my alley. Those what if stories always get me. After all, I also met my partner after one of those ‘single moments’, so I’ve spent quite a chunk of time thinking what would have happened if things hadn’t gone the way they did. Isn’t it incredible how the little things can be momentous?
