    Description

    The Sunday Times top 10 best seller from the author of The Midnight Library and The Humans

    HOW MANY LIFETIMES DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN HOW TO LIVE?

    Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old history teacher, but he’s been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen it all. As long as he keeps changing his identity, he can stay one step ahead of his past – and stay alive. The only thing he must not do is fall in love.

    But what if the one thing he can't have just happens to be the one thing that might save him?

    Nice holiday book

    Nice story but quite longish and repetitive. The structure of the book, going from present to past may have been a good way to support the main character’s state of mind, drowning in the past, but ends up adding heaviness to plot developments. Finally it’s a short and simple story made long. From the same author, the « Midnight Library » was more appealing to me.

    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!!

    Would make a better movie

    It's a good idea, just a bit too slow and lacks a danger aspect you would expect from a secret society. As a movie it would probably move faster.

    Great idea but too much drama

    although the subject and idea for this book is an interesting concept, the main character seems to be troubled all the time, unable to find contentment or happiness.
    it's too much, exaggerated and enerving at times.

    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.

    Interesting thoughts on how to spend a lifetime


    An enjoyable story mix going through past centuries and the personal experiences of the protagonist and thoughts on what living your life means with all the worries and joys.
    I also like the way it is read to listeners.

    etwas langatmig

    Die Buchidee finde ich spannend. Für meinen Geschmack gibt es in der Geschichte jedoch zu viele Wiederholungen, dadurch war es etwas langweilig.

    Hilarious writing!

    I like Matt Haig’a writing style, it’s very easy to follow and funny. The story itself is not original but well told. The end I found a bit rushed, the story is told I’m a spread out way which is why I found the end didn’t really fall into the same feeling. But otherwise I enjoyed the book a lot and will definitely read more of him!

    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.
