I have read several books by Kate Atkinson. “Human Croquet” was her second book, written after “Behind the Scenes at the Museum”, which was her first boat I read and I still remember details of the plot. There were many similarities between “Human Croquet” and her other books, there are some overlaps of characters, and her style is similar across her books.
I found “Human Croquet” slow at first, before it became gripping. The plot is complex, with different threads of the plot, and twists that confuse. All in all a very good book.
