I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

Cover of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.

Hard to rate โ€“ I know that I enjoyed reading this book, but then, I am easy to lure in with Groundhog Day variations. However, as I’m writing this review a year later to the day, I find myself remembering nearly nothing of the book โ€“ only bits and pieces of the personal lives of Harry, after thinking about it for a bit. But the villain remains blurry, except for my annoyance with the old, tired “anybody with ambition and a will to change the status quo is clearly evil” trope. Authors ought to do better โ€“ “keep everything ever the same” is a rather meh lesson for a time travel story to offer.

This book is part of the 2022 Backlog Incident.
