SOME STORIES CANNOT BE TOLD IN JUST ONE LIFETIME.

Harry August is on his deathbed. Again.

No matter what he does or the decisions he makes, when death comes, Harry always returns to where he began, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen times before. Nothing ever changes.

Until now.

As Harry nears the end of his eleventh life, a little girl appears at his bedside. "I nearly missed you, Doctor August," she says. "I need to send a message."

This is the story of what Harry does next, and what he did before, and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow.

3.5 Short Review: The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August (Claire North)
Series: N/A Publisher: Redblock (2014) Genre(s): Mystery, Science Fiction, Historical Fiction I really liked this book and YAY for Claire North for making non-linear narrative work! However, I didn't really like that the story was so narrow in scope (although it is grandiose, or it seems so): I wa...

EXTREMELY unique premise that is well written (though scattered at times) and has interesting concept/characters. Overall, this is a mostly enjoyable read but it took a reeeaaalllyyy long time to end and when it did I just stared at the ereader for a long while. It didn't bog down at any one place, ...

5.0 The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
There's really not much to say about this that other reviewers haven't said sooner and better. And I'm an unabashed Claire North/Kate Griffin fangirl, so perhaps I'm an easy target for her particular brand of literary magic, but in any case, this was spectacularly good.
