The 7.5 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

7.5 deaths

Amazon | Goodreads



I received an ARC from the publisher on Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This book will be released on September 18, 2018. 

What is it about?

Aiden Bishop is trapped at Blackheath, where every night Evelyn Hardcastle dies at precisely 11:00. Only when he figures out the “Who, what, and why’s” will he be free to escape.

He only has 8 days to solve the mystery and each day is spent trapped in a different guest at Blackheath.

Was it good?

It was okay. At times it was really interesting, and other times the story seemed to drag a bit. It also felt unnecessarily confusing at times because the narrator was keeping his plans secret until they unfolded on their own.

Some of the twists were surprising, but others seemed anti-climactic, and still others were over-the-top.

To summarize my opinion: the story was very interesting, and some parts were better than others.


Do you ever wake up not knowing who or where you are?

I don’t have that problem, yet. However this morning I was going to make biscuits using bisquick, and even though I’m looking at the recipe on the bisquick box I ended up using plain flour and mixing it with the milk before realizing I should have used the bisquick. And later I could NOT remember my cousin’s name even though it’s the same as my 4 months old baby.
