Its 1969, a mystical woman arrives to NYC claiming she can tell anyone the day they will die. The young Gold children - Simon, Klara, Daniel, Varya, sneak out to hear their predictions and learn their next 5 decades. Will their lives be same as their predictions?
This story focuses on the lives of the four children and I felt that the magical touch was just in the beginning and nothing after. I was a but disappointed, but kept reading to lean about the Golds since I already knew their predictions!! Wow I was amazed how the story turned out...the familial bond, faith and destiny is explored in the eyes of Simon, Klara, Daniel and Varya. I can easily say that The Immortalists is one of the good literary-historical fictions I’ve read!!
