The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August - Claire North This just never grabbed me. The idea was great and original but the execution left me empty. I wanted to care about the character and the intrigue and the story but I was just never invested into.

It seemed like the years jumped around too much for me. Keeping straight which life was which and the order of things was annoying. It would have been fine to go out of order. But years were left unfinished while the story moved on and then, suddenly, you were back. I wanted a little more of a linear arch to the plot that wouldn't make me feel like I should be taking notes.
