Prepare to suspend all disbelief and embrace the sublimely absurd. Atkinson has a gift for taking the mundane, tragic and sort of creepy and turning it into a farcical fairy tale. I finished the book 2 days ago but I'm still thinking about her characters and what they might be up to.

Brilliant & hilarious, with a touch of irreverence to add to gleeful enjoyment. Some digressions go on too long, approaching tedium; most are startlingly original and witty.
