How to Stop Time – Matt Haig

Living for hundreds of years and love. That’s what How to Stop Time is about. Plus a bit of an action thriller element. But mostly about love, and loss, and how to love, and is life meaningful if you don’t love?

I know, clean my shoes. Do it now. Do it immediately.

Our main character, Tom Hazard, is over 400 years old. We catch up with him as he takes a job as a history teacher, in modern day London. Interwoven with this story are various stories from Tom’s past. There aren’t too many different times and stories to contend with, it all works very well together and isn’t confusing at all.

Train reading and excellent book mark from Tate in Liverpool.

I’m not going to give away any of the plot here, but it’s well worth a read. There are a few famous historical figures turning up, which I didn’t really like, but it was minimal enough to not be that annoying!

And just because I’ve got a friend called Martin, here is my favourite quote from the whole book:
