Nice original idea, the last chapters weren't as good as the first ones

This was a real marmite book with the Bookworms. We did all agree that we loved the descriptions of Shakespeare's London.
Enjoyed the history and found the premise interesting.

This book was loved by our book group. They found the writing easy and the story and characters interesting and enjoyable. Although the story constantly shifts back and forth in time they did not find this a problem as it sometimes can be . The different periods of history and the characters from them were well written and the consensus was that it was a fun, light hearted and entertaining novel.
Altogether one of our favourite group reads and it scored an average of 8 out of 10.

Read with Gloucester Book Club. It’s not bad, but not great. It’s an easy read, with some interesting ideas about immortality, coupled with a mindfulness theme. We had good discussions about whether living for hundreds of years would be desirable!
