Staff Flash-Review: 'The Immortalists' by Chloe Benjamin

BookBar Thu, 01/18/2018 - 10:03am

Imagine knowing the day you were going to die, your entire life. Chloe Benjamin's "The Immortalists" follow four siblings as they live their lives, each shadowed by the date of their deaths. There's the fearless Simon who learns to live his life on his terms, the majestic Klara who's haunted by ghosts of her past, the steady Daniel who's blame controls his decisions, and the logical Varya who has forgotten what it means to be alive. Follow this modern classic through forty years of tragedy, grief, and understanding what it means to be a family.
