Book Review: The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August


The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire NorthOver the years of science fiction, time travel, reincarnation, and immortality has been studied in many ways. Claire North has taken the different ideas and melded them together into an interesting, intriguing adventure.

Harry August is a kalachakra. When he dies, he is reborn back at the time he was born originally. Harry was born January 1, 1919. When he died the first time, he was born again on January 1, 1919. By the time he was three to four years old he started having memories of his previous life. In his third life, Harry tried to tell someone what he was. That didn’t go well. In his fourth life Harry finally hooked up with the Cronus Club. The Cronus Club was already established back in early Egyptian times. The members are there to help each other. Once a member recovers his or her memories, that person can contact the club for assistance – perhaps a “scholarship” to a private school or some other cover.
