While I liked the entire premise of the story, the execution fell flat for me. The dialogue felt stilted and the characters and their situations felt contrived. There was SO MUCH potential here for an exciting, interesting story. But this was slow and convoluted.

If you want to read this book as a great escape from life... DON'T ... Read plenty of reviews before deciding to waste precious book reading time on this book. This book started out great and interesting until it started to feel like the author wanted to insert every political issue in society into the story. The story felt like being subjected to "a political woke soapbox' where the best solution is to "love and accept everyone" through it all because we are all "strung together." This is the first book I have read where I did NOT want to finish. It was all I could do to finish it and had to speed read the last 100 pages. This book felt like 'woke/leftism' in favor of certain groups of people and taught me to 'check the reviews first' so I can read great fiction stories without political propaganda.… (meer)

Story of a time in the world when you received a little box that held the information on your longevity. It was either a short string or a long string. It got to a point when you could calculate almost exactly when you were going to die. The premise of the book was interesting but I didn’t really get too attached to the characters in the book. It became better toward the end of the book when people finally decided how they were going to deal with their strings.

The length of a life measured by a string which everyone, twenty-two years and older, receives. This basic premise is almost enough to stop you reading this novel, however, the depths of the personalities introduced in the story bring you to you a wealth of thoughts and considerations. Although slow-moving initially you finally move you to life unfolding for several individuals.
