I just finished Started Early, Took My Dog by Kate Atkinson.

As usual with Atkinson's novels, I felt very satisfied when I completed the book, but a little while later I started wondering "wait, what about...?" until I had run up quite a list of unanswered questions and unexplained plot points.

I think maybe she does this on purpose*; she's admitted in interviews that sometimes she "lies" in her books, and it's obvious that she likes to confuse her readers. But she's such a terrific writer that I accept all this and eagerly await the next one.

*It's also possible that I'm just dimwitted.
