2014 book 79

Claire North's The Fifteen Lives of Harry August
This has kind of a similar premise to Kate Atkinson's Life After Life, in that the main character dies and is born again into his old life. But here, he doesn't die that often (mostly lives to an old age each time), and is very aware of his situation. Eventually he discovers a club of people who also relive their lives--as well as someone determined to bring their club down to enable his own experiments. It's all pretty sci-fi-ish? I'm not really sure. It's interesting enough, I just wasn't really into the conflict between Harry and Vincent, which makes up the majority of the book. B.
