In My Library--The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
by Claire North

3 out of 5 stars

Synopsis via Goodreads: The extraordinary journey of one unforgettable character - a story of friendship and betrayal, loyalty and redemption, love and loneliness and the inevitable march of time.

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.


This book was very intriguing. The idea of living your life over and over again kept me very interested. I think that Harry lived a lot of interesting lives, but I didn't love the story line about time travel. I thought it dragged in that sense, which is weird since it's the main story line of the book, but I did like the rest of the story and his lives, even though he lacked personality.
