Book Review: The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

'The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August' by Claire North

Rating: 5 Stars

Harry August's memory normally begins to return to him around age four - the memory of living this same life several times before.

Harry is stuck in an endless loop, living the same life over and over again from birth to death. He is a kalachakra, and he isn't the only one.

This story jumps between Harry's first fifteen lives, and how he manages to shape a new future for the world that he never intended, and how he must undo it all before it is too late.

The pace of the book was a little distracting to begin with, but after a few pages, the rhythm became familiar - anectodes building on the changes in Harry's future lives and how he chooses to live each of them differently - all of them building up to a chilling finale.
