    What a unique and compelling premise. Would you want to know the date of your death? And if you did, how would that knowledge change the way you lived? If you change your life could that be the very thing that might hasten your demise? Or would you just try and make the most of every day?

    The book opens with 4 siblings visiting a fortune teller who tells each of them the exact day they would die. After this intriguing beginning, the story is broken into four parts, one for each of the s

    In 1969, four siblings visit a mystical woman who tells each one the precise date of their death. This knowledge will define each sibling's life in various ways, be it because they live their life in spite of the knowledge or because of their knowledge. It is a novel about fate and agency, about finding a place in the world, about family and selfhood, about mistakes and guilt and forgiveness.

    This book's prologue was absolutely bloody brilliant. It had me engaged immediately and I could not stop

  • Sam

    The conceit is fabulous: in 1969, the four Gold siblings visit a fortune teller who bestows upon them the date of their death. Like a stone dropped in a pond, the repercussions reverberate through time and we follow Varya, Daniel, Klara, and Simon across their individual life spans, their choices and actions made in spite of and in defiance of this "foreknowledge". Chloe Benjamin's debut novel The Immortalists juggles many questions - do we create our fates or are we slaves to them, how should a ...more

    3.5ish stars.

    An enjoyable family saga/character study with the tiniest dash of magical realism, but it's missing something. Without the something, it's unmemorable and unremarkable.

    The kids of the Gold family have a gypsy psychic tell them the dates of their deaths, which is sort of used as the premise of the book. Mostly it's just used as an excuse to explore what it means to live one's "best life." Try to cram as much life in as possible before death catches up (and maybe inadvertently cause

    ‘The impossibility of moving beyond loss, faced against the likelihood you will: it’s as absurd, as seemingly miraculous, as survival always is.”

    The power of this story is in the larger questions it poses. Do our personally held beliefs play a significant role in shaping our destinies? How do our families mold us and what roles do we play in our shared fates? To live with uncertainty or prophesy, which provides us the greater path?

    Why I liked rather than loved this book is that I expected a mo

    The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin is a 2018 G.P. Putnam’s Sons publication.

    In a novel, so centered on death, there is a tremendous amount of life and living within these pages.

    Beginning in 1969, the four Gold siblings boldly knock on the door of a fortune teller who then proceeds to impart to them the one thing nobody knows when they enter this world- the exact day you will die.

    For better or worse, Varya, Daniel, Klara and Simon cope with this heavy information, but, their approach to life, t

  • Diane Barnes

    Which is stronger, fate or free will? Can changing your actions alter your fate, or simply make it more inevitable? Should life be measured by longevity, or by joy? Should we fear death, or embrace life all the more because of it?

    These are the questions Chloe Benjamin has us consider in this beautiful novel. In 1969, 4 siblings, ranging in age from 13 to 7, visit a fortune teller who tells them the exact date of their death. How they handle this information is told through each one's story, with
