What an interesting concept for a book! Four siblings – during their youth – will visit a fortune teller who will tell them each individually the date of their death: no sibling telling the other. How they live the rest of their lives may- or may not – be dependent on “knowing.”

The book is broken down into four parts for each of the siblings: Simon, Klara, Daniel and Varya. How they deal with the news of their date of death, if they believe, the decisions they make, and ultimately their end.

By the time I got halfway through the last section the message started coming to me: that a-ha moment. I really enjoyed this book. It was different and kept me engaged.

I think at first you feel it may be a bit more of a fantasy type read with some magic, but it wasn’t. Once their lives move on from that day with the fortune teller, we are immersed in their stories of “living,” I highly recommend reading!
