    The only character that felt awkward to me is the plague doctor. We will only let you escape once you tell us the name of the killer. If you use them, I will receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. All he knows is a name - Anna. And some of his hosts are more helpful than others.

    Every day until Aiden Bishop can identify her killer and break the cycle. There is more to chew on here than just the mechanics of a time-travel detective story. I will say, some of the darker parts of the story were quite dark just how I like themso just be aware that this is definitely an adult book. Bishop has eight chances to solve it. Then let's begin Looks like a busy day for Mr Bishop.

    The central story had the familiarity of a Golden Age mystery, but the puzzles were shiny and new. Then let's begin He likes Evelyn, and feels bound to prevent her murder — but how can he unmask her killer, and thus gain his freedom, unless the killing takes place? You know who dies from the title itself, but unlike your common or garden whodunnit, you follow the course of a day many times over, from different viewpoints as our protagonist tries to solve the question of who killed Evelyn Hardcastle, and more importantly, why.

This book is a masterpiece. Those revelations came tumbling out in the final chapters, some of them sticking and some of them being blown away by the wind that bought more answers.

The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle…by Stuart Turton

I found for me that this challenge was more than worth the reward. For price, please email Orders booksandbooks. At a gala party thrown by her parents, Evelyn Hardcastle will be killed—again.

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton review

If you use them, I will receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. He learns that he is a house guest there, that no one has any idea who Anna is, and his urgent request to investigate a murder in the woods are not taken seriously at all.

There is more to chew on here than just the mechanics of a time-travel detective story. Final thoughts: Overall, I just really enjoyed this, and I highly highly recommend that you pick it up in September or if you live outside of the US, maybe even sooner!

Each day Evelyn Hardcastle will be murdered at PM. And some of his hosts are more helpful than others. A meld of golden-age mystery, surreal futurism, and period drama, this book is fresh, strange, and maddeningly yet satisfyingly complex. All of the hosts were complex, nuanced characters; and to make them live and breathe while maintaining the character and the story of the man who was occupying their bodies and their lives was a magnificent balancing act.

As the days pass by he will try to complete that mission, but he doesn't know who he can trust, who might be involved in the crime, and which other lives he might come to occupy; and he has no idea at all why he has fallen into such a nightmarish situation. And someone is determined to prevent him ever escaping Blackheath… A man awakes in a wood, with no memory of who he is or how he got there, and with only a single name on his lips.

Fun, inventive and thoroughly entertaining, perhaps leave your own reality reading is the new binge watching. Everyone has some kind of dark secret or past, and it is really impossible to know who to trust. An amazing, unique book that blew my mind. The twist?

But as soon as I figured out what was going on well, as much as the author allowsI was completely sucked in. There's a certain delicious joy to being confused and then ignoring the rest of the world while you read, desperate to discover the answers.

Failure to do so will result in a full memory wipe and starting the process all over again. Readers may be scratching their heads in delicious befuddlement as they work their way through this novel, but one thing will be absolutely clear: Stuart Turton is an author to remember.

Subplots and antagonists complicate things for no obvious reason, and the setting is more contrived than it needs to be. That cycle will continue, time and time again, until he presents the correct solution.

Or in this case-- many lives. The multiple perspectives gives this book a mind-blowing mash-up feeling of Clue and the best Agatha Christie. Stuart Turton, a debut novelist, has drawn on half a dozen familiar tropes from popular culture and reworked them into something altogether fresh and memorable.

The only way to break this cycle is to identify the killer. In due course, Bishop is told he has rivals: two of the other members of the country house party are also hosts to foreign souls, tasked with unveiling the murderer. There's a certain delicious joy to being confused and then ignoring the rest of the world while you read, desperate to discover the answers.

Every page, every character, and every deliciously dark secret is an absolute treat.Sep 22,  · The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (Book): Turton, Stuart: At a gala party thrown by her parents, Evelyn Hardcastle will be killed.

Again. She's been murdered hundreds of times, and each day, Aiden Bishop is too late to save her. Doomed to repeat the same day over and over, Aiden's only escape is to solve Evelyn Hardcastle's murder and conquer the shadows of an enemy he.
