The Sunday Times top 10 best seller from the author of The Midnight Library and The Humans

HOW MANY LIFETIMES DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN HOW TO LIVE?

Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old history teacher, but he’s been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen it all. As long as he keeps changing his identity, he can stay one step ahead of his past – and stay alive. The only thing he must not do is fall in love.

But what if the one thing he can't have just happens to be the one thing that might save him?

Fascinating but bit too long and slow

I am a Matt Haig fan, and this is my 5th book from his collection. He has written on a very intersting concept and the overall story when summarised is absolutely fascinating. How the character has lived through different eras, whom all he met, what he learnt and relearnt.... everything is amazing except the pace of the book. it's too slow for my liking. And it got too philosophical at points. Maybe I am not in the same frame of mind as the author intended his reader to be, but c'mon for someone who wrote Human and Midnight Library- this one goes really slow. I am still glad I read it, but I did want it to go a bit faster and get over a bit sooner.

Thought provoking and Deep

Matt Haig does it again, starts with a simple premise but then takes it deeper and ends with a thought provoking ending. Took away 1 star because the premise is little old and has been used multiple times. Good lite read nevertheless, will definitely recommend.
