Product description

Review

Utterly readable, utterly believable and compelling . . . one of the fiction highlights of the decade (Judy Finnigan, Richard and Judy Book Club)

Beautiful and gripping (GUARDIAN)

The writing is impeccable . . Plus Harry is a fascinating main character . . . And if his next 15 lives are half as eventful, we look forward to the sequel (HEAT)

A masterful literary thriller (io9)

An astonishing re-invention of the time-travel narrative. Bold, magical and masterful (M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS)

I don't say this lightly but The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is one of the top ten books I've ever read (James Dashner, bestselling author of THE MAZE RUNNER)

Gripping (SUN)

This wonderful novel, narrated by Harry, ranges back and forth in time as he recounts episodes from his various lives, but it's all held together by a compelling mystery involving nothing less than the end of the world itself . . . Beautifully written and structured . . . a remarkable book (BOOKLIST)

North builds her clever conceit into an emotionally satisfying novel (NEW SCIENTIST)

Every bit as good as its title. (And, to avoid ambiguity, I love the title.) (WEEKEND HERALD)

Grabs you from the first page; it crackles along at a rollicking pace . . . unputdownable (THE SATURDAY PAPER)

A truly extraordinary novel: an impeccable portrait of a friendship tortured by time in which masterful character and fantastic narrative come together to tremendous effect (TOR.COM)

Terrific, smart and entertaining (Patrick Ness)

Claire North's sophisticated writing and astute plotting have made this my book of the year (Peter F. Hamilton)

A thoughtful and considered time-travel novel, shocking twists and, most important of all, a beautiful character. Harry August will break your heart fifteen times (Jared Shurin)

A brave, genre-defying novel, which is mind-blowing in its originality and bold concept . . . Stunning! (NOVELICIOUS)

Part unique and intriguing mystery, part philosophical look at life, memory and time travel this story kept me totally gripped from the opening words to the mind-blowing finale (BITE THE BOOK)

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is an extraordinary novel, as the publicity has promised (THE SPECULATIVE SCOTSMAN)

An extraordinary book . . . an impressive piece of work. (Upcoming4me)

Book Description
