Emotionally Weird - Kate Atkinson

This was my first book by Kate Atkinson and though clearly a capable writer, I was disappointed by the book, which seemed to me rather jumbled. The storyline, perhaps deliberately, is confusing and the characters forgettable, culminating in an uninteresting read. I know Atkinson has a very good reputation, so perhaps I have just alighted on the 'wrong' book?
