Summary

Joyful, devastating and profound, Meet Me in Another Life is a story of love and connection in every possible form that will captivate fans of Stuart Turton, Claire North and Audrey Niffenegger. 

Thora and Santi have met before....

Under the clocktower in Central Cologne, with nothing but the stars above and their futures ahead. 

They will meet again....

They don’t know it yet, but they’ll meet again: in numerous lives they will become friends, colleagues, lovers, enemies - meeting over and over for the first time, every time; each coming to know every version of the other. 

Only they can make sure it’s not for the last time. 

But as they’re endlessly drawn together and the lines between their different lives begin to blur, they are faced with one question: why? 

They must discover the truth of their strange attachment before this, and all their lives, are lost forever.

Critic reviews

"A sweet, melancholy heartache of a novel." (Kate Mascarenhas, author of The Psychology of Time Travel)

"Inventive, bold, and surprising - from where the novel starts I could have never imagined where it ends. Along the way the story of Thora and Santi builds in suspense and emotion, revealing itself page by page, layer by layer. Cleverly constructed and highly entertaining." (Charles Yu)

"Brilliant, lush, and achingly imaginative! I love this book in every life." (Beth Revis, best-selling author of Across the Universe and A World Without You)

"Beautifully explored and deeply complex." (Gal Gadot)

Repetitive argument for 11 hrs

I am not sure what this book supposed to be about. Two people with different points of view on life keep meeting each other in different lives without recollection of their previous encounters. Until about half way through the book they suddenly know they know each other from previous lives and trying to resolve their past arguments.
The book is about Thora - sceptical, argumentative and constantly in opposition to Santi - an idealist, dreamer and believer in God.
They meet each other every episode in different roles - friends, then husband and wife, father and daughter, teacher and student, supervisor and internship...
These two characters are meeting in different times, universes, parallel worlds .. who knows, it’s never explained but it is not really important for the book to make sense I guess.
But I don’t know what then. They’re having arguments for 11 hours. Well, I am not sure if for the duration of the whole book as I stopped listening half way through but I guess so. They constantly argue and it’s tiring to listen obnoxious and annoying Thora having a problem with every single word or opinion of Santi.
The book pretends to have some theological and even philosophical discussions but there’s no progress after 5 hours and I am not interested enough to find out how it ends.
The only positive thing about the book is the narration. It was actually the narrator because of whom I kept listening to this unspecified genre for two more hours after I found no interest in lives of these two what so ever.
