'Harry August is on his deathbed. Again.
time Harry dies, he is reborn in exactly the same time and place, a
child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen
times before. No matter what he does or the decisions he makes, when
death comes, Harry always returns to where he began, and nothing ever
changes. Until now.
As Harry nears the end of his eleventh
life, a little girl appears by his bedside. "I nearly missed you, Doctor
August," she says. "I need to send a message back with you. It has come
down from child to adult, child to adult, passed back down the
generations from a thousand years forward in time. The message is that
the world is ending, and we cannot prevent it. So it's now up to you."
is the story of what Harry August does next -- and what he did before
-- and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he
cannot allow. It is a story of friendship and betrayal, of love and
loneliness, loyalty and redemption, and the inevitable march of time.' - Goodreads
This sounds absolutely fascinating! I'm so intrigued by the idea of living your life over and over, each time exactly the same, not being able to change a single thing. I'll definitely be picking up a copy of this one just as soon as possible! I also want to know who Claire North is, this is a pseudonym for a well-known author and apparently Harry August is completely different to anything they've written before! Who is it?!
