Book Review

The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

Really enjoyed this novel. It’s quite a quick read and i could jump right in from the very start as the story got going straight from page one.

I liked the way the author broke the book up into stories of each character, and how one passed from one to the other. I particularly enjoyed the stories of Simon and Varya.

The story simple put, is about 4 siblings who when young visit a Fortune teller, who tells them the date of which they will die.

All but one of the dates mean that 3 of the siblings die quite young. The stories tell how each child then lives out the rest of their life with this knowledge and how it changes the decisions they make and the direction they chose to go in.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
