The 39 Deaths of Adam Strand by Gregory Galloway

Expected Publication: 21 February 2013 by Dutton Juvenile

Synopsis

Adam Strand isn't depressed. He's just bored. Disaffected. So he kills himself—39 times. No matter the method, Adam can't seem to stay dead; he wakes after each suicide alive and physically unharmed, more determined to succeed and undeterred by others' concerns. But when his self-contained, self-absorbed path is diverted, Adam is struck by the reality that life is an ever-expanding web of impact and forged connections, and that nothing—not even death—can sever those bonds.

Why I'm Waiting

This one sounds quite dark but also has the potential for a pretty deep insight into the meaning of life etc. I'm intrigued!

What are YOU waiting for this week?

  1. Sounds a bit like Ground Hog Day in a way when he kept trying to kill himself. Unique, a bit dark, but intriguing and maybe inspiring once he starts changing. Nice pick!

  3. I read one book by Gregory Galloway, As Simple as Snow, and I liked it, so that's a good sign, right?
