The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
by Claire North (Orbit, 2014); audiobook read by Peter Kenny (Hachette Audio, 2014)
A refreshingly original take on time travel. Born over and over again in 1919 and remembering each of his lives, Harry August narrates in a style faintly reminiscent of H. G. Wells. The scenario’s intrigue gives rise eventually to a high-stakes page-turner.
