One Good Turn Kate Atkinson Book Review
There is this humour in the book of Kate Atkinson. A weird jokes and characters that does not take it seriously. It was the dully abstract way of the prose that made the Kate Atkinson’s book attractive to me.
There is not too much story in the book. One Good Turn is a character novel, where the conflict is internal.
I would suggest to read this book when you are feeling dull with yourself.
