Journal Entry 1 by wingPlum-crazywing from Brighouse, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, November 15, 2017

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.

Well...what can I say? A plot that could/should be repetitive but isn't, a story flitting from one life to another backwards & forwards in time, a little confusing & complicated at times, as well as some political history that normally, I should be ashamed to say, that I would skim over....not my usual style of read at all & one I think will be of the type that the reader either loves or hates. Me? I'm firmly in the former category.

I'm not going to analyse the plot, compare it to other books about reincarnation, time-travel or whatever & my overall opinion is pretty much in the area of..."WOW! what the hell happened there?" a really good way, that is :o)

An astonishing, intelligent & thought-provoking read, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
