Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Club #68


For May’s Book Club we will be discussing The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North. In it, Harry keeps dying. And being born again.

And remembering.

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.

At April’s Book Club we discussed A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. We enjoyed the magic and setting in this easy-to-read fantasy novel, with its multiple versions of London and various flavors and strengths of magic. Certainly lots to pick apart, but also very enjoyable along the way. More detailed notes available at Positron Chicago.

When: Monday, May 11th, 2015 6:30pm-7:30pm
Where: Filter Cafe 1373-75 N. Milwaukee Ave
