The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North

Our rating: 4.6 stars


A terrifyingly heartbreaking tale of lives lost, restored, and the hashing acceptance of inaction in times of calamity, Claire North breaks the mold with this riveting tale of the everlasting Harry August.

Harry is born to a former kitchen girl on the floor of a women’s bathroom. He is then raised on a farm, lives an unremarkable life before dying alone, a childless divorcee, in a Newcastle-upon-Tyne hospital. However, just as the tides turn, Harry August is reborn on the Berwick-upon-Tweed station, on the floor of the women’s bathroom, to an unfortunate former kitchen girl.

Through The Fifteen Lives of Harry August, Claire North unfolds a world of endless sunsets, eternal minds (known only as Kalachakras) restricted to an eternal loop, and the mnemonic Harry, the only one of his kind burdened with the memory of his past lives, who is to save the world.

An assured, eloquently simple read, this award winning fantastical fiction takes you on a journey through the human condition; of unrequited love, betrayal, and the deemless battles of mental illness that are served with it.

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is a marvelously complex tale, a craftul ride in the captivating mind of an unforgettable character. Claire North clearly has outdone herself.
