Ever get tired of following just one character through a whole book? Then bestselling author Kate Atkinson may have a twist you'll enjoy: a single character reincarnated as several people over a long span of time. In the novel Life After Life ($28), protagonist Ursula Todd dies multiple times, but each subsequent rebirth is colored with the experiences of her previous lives. While this book must have been an interesting writing exercise for Atkinson, it makes for an equally compelling read, as well.
