I tried to read Life after Life. I couldn't make it past about 100 pages. I've heard enough people talk about it positively that it has to be better for some than it was for me. But the bouncing around in time did not make sense to me in the same way that some other time travel books have. I finally realized I couldn't follow it, didn't care about the characters, and move on to other books. I'm not familiar with the other two.
