"Simmering with dark comedy and questioning the boundaries between magic and physics, this is a crafty novel that can easily make a reader forget it's fiction. The writing is smart and confident, and the relationships feel real, as does the mounting pain of this uniquely cursed protagonist. Gritty and patient, with authentic dialogue and a bizarre plot that has broad appeal, this is a uniquely strange novel you should not miss."--SPR, ★★★★½
"[R]eaders will be hypnotized by the twists in this page-turning account of the catastrophic consequences of immortality."--BookLife
"[A]n absorbing story that compels on several levels and proves hard to put down, especially for readers who have read other variations on the theme of immortality's trials and tribulations."--Midwest Book Review

P.S. also try The Hack by Moses Mikheyev, which is fantastic as well.
Pulled me in right away. So easy to read. Simple writing (a good thing), simple concepts (also a good thing) and a few poems (of course this is about a romantic).
Almost like four stories in one. Adams early life before his first death (not a spoiler, um, the title). His college years. His life after his great love. And the epilogue. Together these stories put together make a lovely book. It crosses genres. As the author himself says in his notes at the books end "I have a tendency to write the unexpected, the peculiar, the strange." I would definitely recommend this book to others.
I will definitely be in search of other books by this author. If you love books of all sorts of genres and you can handle a little romance, take a look at this one. You won't regret it.
Thanks to #NetGalley and the author himself (I believe he self published this book, I only just discovered) for a free copy of this book to review. As always, all thoughts are my own.

He eventually learns that he has a genetic abnormality that allows him to to this, an ability that some unscrupulous people—rich men who want their lineage to be perpetuated ad infinitum and scientists—want to harness his genetics.
Aristotle falls in love with Lilyanne who is a carrier of the same recessive genetic mutation. Aristotle dies one more time and loses Lilyanne.
Suicide is romanticized and Aristotle is “addicted” to killing himself and seems to have neither any particular emotional revulsion about repeatedly killing himself or significant psychological trauma from doing so. There are some sex scenes that really aren’t X-rated, but also aren’t in keeping with the rest of the story; they do, however, add to the New Adult genre.
Though there is a romance and Aristotle is billed as “the last romantic,” I didn’t find him particularly romantic. His idea of romance seems to be stuck in the early adolescent phase.
