What if you knew when you'll die? How would you live your life? Would the date consume you? Would you try to change your future? The Immortalists follows 4 siblings as they live their lives after finding out their death days from a traveling gypsy.
I wanted to like this book, I really did, but I just wasn't invested in any of the characters. I liked Kara the most, but even then I didn't really like her that much. Gertie was fun but any more of her and I would've hated her. The character development was lacking; however, this would be a decent book to suggest to someone interested in reading literary fiction. The characters were diverse but just not that deep.
Something I found to be a stretch and therefore unbelievable was the police officer and how he managed to become involved in the lives of 3 out of 4 siblings. It's like he was added as an afterthought, to connect a few loose ends. It felt cheap.
Like I said, I really wanted to like this book but I just couldn't get into it. I mostly just skimmed the last two chapters.
