Ok, here's a challenge. I was thinking abour Lionel Shriver's Post-Birthday World which I quite enjoyed. Does anyone know of any other Sliding Doors-esque parallel universe type novels please? smile

Ooh good question. I loved that book. Life after Life by Kate Atkinson is the only one that springs to mind.

There's a list here that might help.

Also will be watching for good recommendations. Loved Post-Birthday World hated the constant singing of snooker loopy though grin

Thanks for the Kate Atkinson recommendation, the other books are all good too.

Will have a think and come back to the thread.

I really enjoyed this one, it was bought by my OH and I picked it up when I was bored once.

The Man who turned into himself
