The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

First 15 Lives of Harry August

Now we’re really moving! Our journey through time and reality is at full stride with this month’s book. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August  is a “a page-turning thriller that packs a ton of clever plot twists and world-building that you just want to lose yourself in” (io9). It is one part Groundhog Day, one part Highlander, and a lot of fun.

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.

There are a lot of string theory films out there but most of them struggle to create a concise narrative in a complete world in 120 minutes. One film that I think does that and also gives you a hefty dose of fantasy violence is Edge of Tomorrow. Tom Cruise and Emily Blount star in this crazed dash through time that is a real blast to watch.
