The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August - Claire North
Imagine the choices? Would you break up with your partner or marry them, have children or remain childless, travel or stay at home, remember lotto numbers, invest in apple computers, fight or be a pacifist, study or work the land and how would these choices then affect the way your life turned out? Would it change the world?
I couldn't help but admire the author for being able to keep to her story as surely the spinning plots must have sent her slightly potty. I did though, have to admit to getting myself lost in various places throughout this novel and I couldn't help but being annoyed that our hero Harry kept finding himself in spots that I thought all of his knowledge could have helped him avoid.
Still a worthy 4/5.
