I really liked the premise, but I found the book lacking. In fact, I decided not to even bother finish reading it. Just didn't find the characters or their struggles to be compelling enough for me to be interested in them.

Weighty heavy thinking book very well done and interwoven. Having experienced the world tilting for covid the way the world shifts in this book definitely hits deeper than precovid.

If you could know how long you will live, would you want to know? The Measure explores this idea and its societal effects as well as relationships as people react in very different ways. But, it carefully avoids involving children (born or in utero) from the predictions as well as how less-developed countries might be affected by this kind of phenomenon. The plot overuses coincidences and some storylines are less believable than others.

Everyone in the world 22 and up received a box with a string that tells how long their lives will be. Some open them. Some do not. This follows the lives of 8 people in America whose lives are or will be connected through the strings.

I loved this book. I knew nothing about it until I opened it. I was not a book that I eagerly read. When I was in the story, I didn't want to put it down; but when I put it down, I was not eager to pick it back up. But I still loved it by the end. This would have ended on my keeper shelf had it not been a library book. I liked how each person had their reason for looking or not looking at it. I enjoyed the anonymous letters that were written. They were honest and, without seeing one another in the flesh, they got to know one another before their lives intersected. I liked the how Nikki and Amie show they are sisters by their fighting as sisters do. I don't know how I feel about Jack, but I understand why he did what he did with Javier. Anthony got exactly what he deserved. I had no use or liking for him or his wife.

So my question is, would you look or not?
