How to Stop Time Reviews

    3 Stars.

    Easy and likeable but somewhat unsatisfying read.

    Tom Hazard has a terrible case of existential angst brought on by the fact he's existed for over 400 years. His life is controlled by The Albatross Society, an organization for people with Tom's disorder, anageria, which causes a person to age at a very slow rate, leading to lives that can last for a millennia. The head of the society is Heindrich, a controlling and manipulative man who has set out a series of rules for himself and the o

    I guess I should straight off the bat tell you what happened when I finished reading "The Humans." And yes, I know this is supposed to be a review about "How to Stop Time." Bear with me. So, I finished "The Humans" and I a)wept b) started it again immediately c) spent the next two years giving it to everyone on my gift list and basically insisting everyone read it. My ace in the hole has always been this - "If the road gets rocky (and everyone's road gets rocky sometimes) I can re-read "The Huma ...more

    How to Stop Time is a thought-provoking read. Matt Haig envisions a world where a small group of individuals age at a much slower pace than the average human. While the main character, Tom Hazard, looks 41, he is actually centuries old. To avoid being institutionalized or treated as a medical research subject, Tom has moved around his entire life staying nowhere more than 8-10 years. When the book opens, Tom has decided to return to London and teach history at a local low-income high sc

    I’m captivated by a good time travel story and while this is not a time travel story in the strictest sense, I was reminded of a few favorites - Jack Finney’s Time and Again , Stephen King’s 11/22/63 and Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife . I couldn’t help but think of all three of these at the very beginning of the story : “The first rule is that you don’t fall in love”, he said. There are other rules too, but that is the main one. No falling in love. No staying in love. No

    This is my second book by Matt Haig and, to be honest, it's probably going to be my last. Everything from his writing style to his characters to his (lack of) plot doesn't seem to be working for me.

    How to Stop Time is about Tom Hazard who looks like your average forty-something guy but actually has a rare condition that makes him age slower than the average human. So he's around five-hundred years old. Wow, sounds interesting! Right? Except that's kinda it. There's very little story or forward m

    You have to choose to live...

    Exceptional story, out-of-the-box subject: Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries... Imagine, living in times of Shakespeare, Napoleon, up to today.... And try to be invisible, as people may be looking for you.... And whatever happens, don't fall in love.

    A story about love and making choices. I like this writer.

    Recommended!

    Matt Haig’s new novel is the unfortunately titled: How to Stop Time (Herman Melville dodged this bullet when he changed the name of his thick manuscript from the absolutely horrible How to Catch a Big Scary Fishy to Moby Dick. Same for Tom Wolf-How to Drop Acid On a Bus Full of Smelly Hippies; James Joyce-How to Be Named Leopold Bloom and Solve a String of Serial Murders in Dublin (to be honest, I could never got through Ulysses, but I think this might be what it was about…); and Dale Carnegie- ...more

    Library Audiobook......

    Something must be wrong with me......This is the novel everyone is raving about?

    I’m doing it again......Throwing in the towel....NOT GOING TO FINISH....

    It’s NOT that anything is morally wrong with this book —- there are even some wise messages and heartfelt moments — but mostly I was kinda bored.

    I would never call this ‘fiction nonsense’ ( cough cough)- like the last book I didn’t finished where I was pounded over the head by a guy, ( not really - haha - but a little), f
