    Description

    'I am old. That is the first thing to tell you. The thing you are least likely to believe. If you saw me you would probably think I was about 40, but you would be very wrong.'

    Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to jazz age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen a lot and now craves an ordinary life.

    Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom has the perfect cover - working as a history teacher at a London comprehensive. Here he can teach the kids about wars and witch hunts as if he'd never witnessed them firsthand. He can try to tame the past that is fast catching up with him. The only thing Tom mustn't do is fall in love.

    How to Stop Time is a wild and bittersweet story about losing and finding yourself, about the certainty of change and about the lifetimes it can take to really learn how to live.

    Absolutely brilliant!

    What an inspirational book! It made me reconsider the notion of time, past and future and centre myself in this moment. So easy to listen, so profound and yet lighthearted and fun. I listen to an average of two books per week, some quite forgettable and a few rather interesting. “How to Stop Time” however, will stay with me for a very long time. Absolutely brilliant!!

    Original story keeps you hooked and guessing what next

    Great original idea and entertaining read. I found the ending a bit rushed but perhaps I was just wanting more!

    Antidote to despair wrapped in a great story

    Matt Haig is an artist. As such, he has a keen insight into the situation of being human. He suffers along with all of us--thinks and feels deeply about our common pains and delights. I don't know him personally, but his writing is shot through with evidence that these things are true.

    Somehow, though, this depth doesn't stop him from writing stories full of humor, mystery, suspense, and love. They are paradoxes, these tales of his. Light and heavy. Calculated and warm. Philosophical but made buoyant with whimsy.

    How to Stop Time is another triumph for the art of storytelling and for the hopeful pursuit of living.

    I loved The Humans but not this one.

    I bought this book because The Humans was one of my all-time favorites. When I saw that this book had the same narrator and the same author, I figured I couldn't go wrong. But I did go wrong.

    Erhebend

    Der einzige Wunsch der übrig bleibt wäre einmal die Hauptfigur persönlich zu treffen. Eine wunderbare Weltansicht.

    Tolles Buch mit langweiligem Ende

    Wieder ein tolles Buch von Haig. Die zeitlichen Sprünge im erzählfluss sind gut umgesetzt und es bleibt spannend. Aber man merkt dem Buch leider an dass der abgabetermin deutlich früher war, als Haig sich das wohl gewünscht hat. Dennoch, bis auf die letzten 3 Kapitel wirklich sehr gut.

    Idee hätte mehr Potential gehabt

    Das Buch ist weder ein detailgetreuer, historischer Roman, noch ein philosophisches Werk. Die Geschichte ist unterhaltsam geschrieben und gut erzählt, aber die Idee hätte Potential für mehr gehabt. Die Hauptfigur bleibt unfassbar und distanziert, der Charakter von Tom erschliesst sich einem nicht ganz und müsste in Anbetracht seiner Lebenszeit intensiver und glaubwürdiger sein. Alles in allem ein wenig oberflächlich.

    An alright book

    I definitely love humans by Matt Haig, which is why I really looked forward to this novel. However, I was a bit disappointed... it was not as witty and sometimes the story was pretty repetitive and full of stereotypes. The whole story felt a bit rushed, especially the ending.

    I love it!

    I absolutely loved this story! The plot is incredible and almost philosophical, the protagonist is a very interesting person!

    The narrators' voice is very pleasant and the imitation of different peoples' voices is spot on!

    Grandios!

    Beste Geschichte, die ich seit langem gelesen/gehört habe. Habe sie schon mehrmals angehört. Toll geschrieben und toll gelesen. Die Stimme von Mark Meadows ist zudem sehr angenehm. Kann ich nur empfehlen.

    Lieblingshörbuch

    Der englische Sprecher ist der Hammer. Ob zum Aufräumen, Spazieren oder Einschlafen...Diese Stimme! Das Hörbuch wird nie langweilig und regt ständig zum Nachdenken an. Eigentlich mag ich keine Zeitsprünge zwischen Jahrhunderten, aber hier stört es überhaupt nicht und mach die Geschichte noch interessanter. Sehr zu empfehlen!
