Almost half way thru this and cannot put it down:

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
by Claire North
4.04 ·
Rating details · 50,130 ratings · 6,682 reviews
Some stories cannot be told in just one lifetime. Harry August is on his deathbed. Again.
No matter what he does or the decisions he makes, when death comes, Harry always returns to where he began, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen times before. Nothing ever changes.
Until now.
As Harry nears the end of his eleventh life, a little girl appears at his bedside. "I nearly missed you, Doctor August," she says. "I need to send a message."
This is the story of what Harry does next, and what he did before, and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow.

This way for the gas, ladies and gentlemen
Just finished it - 2 sittings 160+pages .
Horrifying

Tadeusz Borowski's concentration camp stories were based on his own experiences surviving Auschwitz and Dachau. In spare, brutal prose he describes a world where the will to survive overrides compassion and prisoners eat, work and sleep a few yards from where others are murdered; where the difference between human beings is reduced to a second bowl of soup, an extra blanket or the luxury of a pair of shoes with thick soles, and where the line between normality and abnormality completely vanishes.
Published in Poland after the Second World War

Just finished reading 'Hawk Quest' by Robert Lyndon.

An historic novel set in the year is 1072.

The Normans have captured England. The Turks have captured a Norman knight. And in order to free him, a soldier named Vallon must capture four rare hawks.

Vallon sets out on a heart-stopping journey to the far ends of the earth, from Greenland to Russia to Constantinople. Braving Arctic seas, Viking warlords, and the blood-drenched battlefields, Vallon and his comrades must track down their quarry one by one in a relentless race against time.

655 pages and I read it in a week, love to find a book that I can't put down. Superb book well written by a guy that knows of what he writes. Lyndon has been a falconer since childhood and intriged by accounts of hawks being used as ransoms during the middle ages.

This was his first novel, that I find amazing. a dam good read.
