The Gameshouse – Claire North – 10.08.22

This is my sixth Claire North novel of the summer, and unlike the previous one, The End of The Day, which was my favourite so far, this one was probably my least favourite. It’s actually sometimes sold as three novellas (annoyingly, Amazon keeps trying to tempt me into buy them as similar to what I’veContinue reading The Gameshouse – Claire North – 10.08.22

The End of the Day (Audiobook) –Claire North (Author), Peter Kenny (Narrator) – 04.08.22

This is my fifth Claire North novel of the summer, and my favourite so far. In fact I would say it’s my new stand out favourite audiobook after Aperigon. I loved the narrator who really, I think, captures the spirit of the different characters and the narrative as well as doing an impressive array ofContinue reading The End of the Day (Audiobook) –Claire North (Author), Peter Kenny (Narrator) – 04.08.22

Touch – Claire North – 29.07.22

This is the fourth in my summer of Claire North novels, and another doozy! Once again, Claire North takes an interesting sci-fi/magical realism what-if and builds a world around it. In Touch, there are people who left there own bodies at the moment of some traumatic death and ‘jumped’ into the body of someone else.Continue reading Touch – Claire North – 29.07.22

84K – Claire North – 16.07.22

This is my third Claire North book, and one thing that I liked about it is how different it is from each of the other Claire Norths I’ve read. It’s a dystopian novel set in a not too distant future where capitalism has gone crazy and monetary value is given way more weight than humanContinue reading 84K – Claire North – 16.07.22

The First 15 Lives of Harry August – Claire North – 05.07.22

This is the second in my Claire North binge, and another great book. Similar in plot in many ways to Life after Life by Kate Atkinson, which I enjoyed reading, and I loved the TV adaptation of. In both novels, the main character is reborn every time they die to re-live the same life overContinue reading The First 15 Lives of Harry August – Claire North – 05.07.22

The Sudden Appearance of Hope – Claire North – 26.06.22

When I finished reading this book, I rattled off a string of superlatives in my head of how wonderful it was (since as always I’m super late in writing this up, I can’t remember the half of them) something like: beautiful, poetic, gripping, relatable, intelligent, thoughtful, devastating, fun, amazing… (and so on – you getContinue reading The Sudden Appearance of Hope – Claire North – 26.06.22
