 The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
I have a bone to pick with you Catherine/Claire/Kate …….. Touch made me lose sleep for 3 days ! Not because it was scary but I literally could not put the book down ….. I loved it ….. rarely does a book grab me like that …. thank you and well done……. So looking forward to your next adventure.
I agree with Ian. I read the First Fifteen Lives with unashamed compulsion. It consumed me and spat me out used and beat up. I love the time travel sub-genre, but can only stand the complete re-imagining of it. Before Catherine stole my heart, the only Audrey Niffenegger’s Time Traveler’s Wife sated my desire for the genre. Thank you so much for the awesome experience!
Loved first fifteen lives, reminded me a lot of Ken Grimwoods excellent ‘Replay’ only with more of a thriller aspect.
Touch was also a great tale.
Good stuff, keep them coming!

I also have a bone to pick with you…I can’t wait until april for the next book! It will drive me mad! Love your writing!
“Touch” blew me away into another world! Wow. It was a genius piece of writing. It’s clear that you are writing about what you love to write about.
Hard to put down and I did not want it to end. Look forward to reading the others from Claire North, and then on to Kate & Catherine. Thank you so much for giving my mind something to sink my teeth into!
I am an avid reader and First Fifteen Lives is my favourite novel. Thank you.

I read the First Fifteen Lives, loved it so much i gave it to my nephew, we both loved it. But The end of the day is great. It made me think of ideas! My nephew is definately getting this one. You make our minds explore ideas.
I happen to come across a couple of your books in my local library and found them to be extremely well written, mesmerizing and thought provoking. (Touch and The Sudden Appearance of Hope) I don’t usually research authors, as I just read for pleasure and distraction from everyday life. BUT…. you really peaked my interest and now that I found out you have many other books under other names, I can’t wait to find more to read! I just wanted to thank you for sharing your talent with the masses…..and even admit I’m a bit jealous that I don’t have your skills. Please know that you are appreciated and that your words will continue to entertain people long after you’ve stopped writing.
Like others posting here, I started the First Fifteen LIves after reading the Sudden Appearance of Hope. Loved both books and lost a lot of sleep because I couldn’t put them down. I just want to say one thing. Keep writing please. I want to read more of your work
84K is awesome. Although the dystopian genre seems to be milked dry, you paint a scary realistic masterpiece. Thank you for your amazingly lifelike characters. Thank you for a wonderfully touching story.
Read Touch only recently – a fantastic book, and was very happy to find out that you were the author of First Fifteen Lives… as well. Happy man, and I shall be certainly be working through your previous and future writing. rexpectant
