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.… (mer)

One of my all-time favorite books is Ken Grimwood's [b:Replay|341735|Replay|Ken Grimwood|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1426577519s/341735.jpg|1804797]. I was initially skeptical about this book, as it seemed to be just a derivation, if not a rip-off, of Replay. Well, I'm very pleased to say that while F15LofHA uses a similar mechanism, it is definitely a much different animal than Replay. I still like Replay more than this book, but that's only because I have a much more emotional attachment to that one.
If it were possible, I would give this book 6 stars. It was exciting, and while not unpredictable, it was a delight seeing where the story was going. This is a book that I'll be thinking of for some time. Like Replay. ( )

Cool concept (though done before), shallow execution. Writing was perfectly serviceable, but character development was basically nonexistent. Harry August's character certainly did not evolve much in the course of his 900 year life, although it must be said there is a semi-justifiable reason for that in terms of the structure of the book. Book is intelligent, it made my jaw drop a couple of times. Pretty cool conclusion. Would have been better if it were twice as long, and written by someone like Donna Tartt or David Mitchell. At times it was too droll, almost read like "the One Hundred Year Old man who climbed out the window and disappeared" with a time travel twist. But this was a perfectly satisfactory read and a good debut effort. Would have no reason not check out subsequent works by the author. ( )

What if you kept living your life over and over--would you try to change the world? A good read if you like time travel, alternate histories, alternate universes and a little suspense thrown in. ( )

All the descriptions of this novel made it seem like it could be a love story, which this is not. It's actually the story of a man, cursed to remember everything and live endless lives, trying to prevent the end of the world brought on by his best friend. Which is way more interesting!

Harry goes through some terrible things, which are mercifully left up to the reader's imagination, in the course of his lives, and they effect him as much as they would anyone. These traumas direct the course of his life, as he can never forget them, and really, did they really happen to this version of Harry anyway?

A story of friendship, betrayal, impossibility, and inevitability. ( )

I am so fucking angry over how good this book is. I might have to go void-scream into an abyss because of its incredible scope and ambition, of the depth and the beauty of its writing, of the sheer ridiculous scope of this story.

I am RAGING with incredulous angry admiration and not even going to attempt a "proper" review--because I can't. I don't understand how it was written. I don't understand how it was put together. I can't conceive of such a concept being executed in such a way and, basically, the story utterly surpasses my ability to deconstruct. ( )
