So I‘m gonna start this one today (it‘s cold out and I am gonna stay in bed under my weighted blanket). ❤️ also I downloaded it from Libby as an audio book so when I do my cleaning chores I can pick up where I left off :)

LiteraryinLititz I found this one really cool, but you have to pay attention because it can be hard to follow. Hope you love it! 1d
ElizaMarie @LiteraryinLititz I have heard such great things. So I am interested in giving it a try. Also heard that was why people didn't like it. That it got hard to follow at times. 1d

MrT UK Title is 7 Deaths.... why the extra 1/2? 3d
Scorpioseah @MrT not two different books ? 3d
MrT No. Same book. I read it last year 3d
Clare-Dragonfly @MrT According to a comment from the author on Goodreads, it‘s to distinguish it from the 7 Husbands of Evelyn Hugo… still confusing in my opinion! 3d

It's a bit weird.
You don't realize it's weird in the beginning because it's actually quite fun at first.
But, halfway through you're going to speed up the audio because you're bored now
And then you're going to get to the end and be like....
What?
No he did not
Where are they again?

Hmmm

ofclumsywords I DNF‘d this one after 50 pages. You are right on point saying it was weird and I just couldn‘t get into it. 6d
IndianaRed @ofclumsywords I was almost a DNF myself. I went as far as to youtube spoilers from other reviewers. Nobody wanted to give the ending away. Ugh. You didn't miss anything. :D 5d

What a wild ride. I loved every moment of this book. The author really kept me guessing. (I don't try and guess while.reading a mystery.. I live the shock of the story as it comes together the feeling that it gives me!)

I am sorry I didn't read this when it came out last year! B but better late then never! it was delightful and a great mystery.

I just finished "The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle" by Stuart Turtan for our Library book club. It was very confusing. I recommend getting a notebook so you can keep track of what is happening. The book was clever and I was satisfied with the ending. It took so much talent to write a novel like this one. I don‘t have enough room to say any more, but you should read it if you like puzzles!

This was very long and I thought the premise would get old but I found it very entertaining. I didn‘t love everything. The revelation of the connection between Anna and Aiden felt totally rushed and I just didn‘t buy the motivations. It seemed like the author came up with the premise but couldn‘t figure out a way to explain how Aiden got there and just threw something in. I‘d rather they just left it a mystery like the some of the other elements

With a familiar premise mashed with a familiar genre, what results is a debut novel that is a breath of fresh air for both and will leave even the most seasoned mystery readers bewildered.

Wow, this was a stunning debut. The writing was impeccably executed & kept the reader engaged. A murder mystery novel, that is atmospherically enthralling. The reader follows along the MC who is tasked with solving a murder that happens at the end of the night. This character will experience the day 8 times all from the perspective/body of a new host. If you are in the mood for a thrilling murder mystery, check this book out! Perfect fall read.

kellyann28 I KNOW. That very last part of the book really threw me for a loop and I am very curious about that whole set up. Who runs that joint, what's the background scene happening there? Whatever became of Aiden and how does he feel now after the fact? 🤔 Need. More. Info. 1mo
TheBookKeepers YES!! And what consequences does the Plague Doctor face? His character background really intrigued me! And Silver Tear was killed within the loop?! Ahhh @kellyann28 1mo

Peculiarly good read, unique in some ways but also predictable (in a good way). Agatha Christie, Clue, Back to the Future, Quantum Leap, Memento among a few things it reminded me of.

♟ The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle was fantastic. I couldn‘t put it down, I put off housework to keep reading (and I‘m paying for that today 🙈)

This book was the perfect mix of being able to guess twists and never seeing them coming. It kept me guessing and also satisfied with my ability to figure things out, exactly what I want in a mystery novel. ⁣

I have recommended this book to every I see since finishing it!

This was a murder mystery unlike any I‘ve read before. The main character inhabits the bodies of eight hosts in order to attempt to solve the murder of Evelyn Hardcastle. Helpfully there was a list of characters at the front to keep everyone straight although you still really had to pay attention to all of the twists and turns in the story.

So so confusing at the beginning, middle and then I loved the end. I think a major part of my problem is I tried to read this at the beach during family vacation with lots going on. It's not something that I was able to easily jump back into after a break. Would have been better for me if I had several uninterrupted hours to devote to Evelyn. But overall, it was so inventive and for that it's a total pick. #audiobook #familybookclub

I really tried to like this but 50 pages in and I couldn‘t do it. I don‘t know if its because I‘m not in the right mood for this kind of book (even though I JUST finished a murder mystery before picking this book up) or because of the writing or plot. But either way, it hurts my heart to DNF this one but I fear I may push myself into another reading slump if I try to force myself to continue.... 🙈

MelissaSue81 I honestly couldn‘t understand this book. I slogged through it but I still don‘t think I know what happened. 3mo
Alfoster Agree! I bailed too @MelissaSue81🤪 3mo
TrishB I bailed too! 3mo
Sapphire I listened on audio and really wanted to bail the entire middle third. It didn't start to redeem it self till the very end. Overall I am glad I finished because the twist was interesting, but it was a bit of a tortured telling. Which kind of fits I guess if the author wanted the readers to have a taste of what the characters go through. 3mo

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Whereas I took my time reading my last few books, I finished this big one in 2 days. I can't believe how hooked I was on the plot, the characters and how everything ended fitting together! It was absolutely amazing and I've already recommended all my friends read this. It was a very compelling read that always kept me wanting to continue, one more chapter every time. I'm especially amazed at how the MCs are written.

Mehso-so

I love Poirot and Agatha Christie style crime drama. I also love confused timelines and plots that zig zag through time. This should have been the perfect book for me. I was slowly drawn in to the world and rubbing my hands with glee, making mental notes of all the characters and using the map at the front to figure out where everyone was. My trouble was the book came to an end, then seemed to bump along the bottom for a while, adding too much.
