Thank You for the advanced copy of this.

I have just read this using Netgalley Shelf.

What a masterpiece this is. I will read this again tomorrow. The bonus story is a truly beautiful addition to this.

Dreams, current affairs, politics and maths - what more can anyone ask for other than more of the same please.

Again, this is a masterpiece.

Highly recommended

I found this fascinating. How this all intertwines and the larger meaning involved really gets the grey matter into motion.
I had no idea what to expect within this. I was pleasantly surprised to find an eclectic mixture of free thinking, sci-fi styled Karl Marx stories.
It really provides some food for thought. Never loose the ability to question and capability to think outside the box.
Im intrigued to read this authors other work.

Many thanks to the Author, Netgalley and Agent P Ltd for an ARC in exchange for my review

Such a unique and beautifully crafted read! I consumed this story as quickly as possible, it hooked me right from the first sentence! The forward is insightful and formatted in a way that feels like an invitation to the conversation. This work is incredibly well done and I will be reading it a second time to catch all the little details. Highly recommend!

“Dreams don’t belong to the ‘here and now’. They’re interdimensional stimulus,” (Pinker, 67)
In complete honesty, I finished this novel in one sitting, and sat back awed by this deeply intra but overall interpersonal collection. Short and numerous in thematic perspective, following as is true to the title, we find chapters from three different times in history- the past, the present, and the future- from the points of view of three different characters. Various forms (diary entries, future technology) give an intimate sight into the minds of these characters as they tackle daily interactions with changing societal norms, empathy, sexuality, gender, and was. Yet, it seems, at times, we are living in one body, the human one. This is the, I felt, subtle brilliance and thematic language of “6 Days, 3 Lives, 1 Being”, how it’s shows to us how the world changes DRASTICALLY, MIND BOGGLINGLY, and without halting, yet though it’s differences seem large, nothing changes. We are, and will always be, humans capable of empathy with the ability to humble ourselves though we cannot walk in the shoes of others.
“6 Days, 3 Lives, 1 Being” Is perfect for anyone in search of a character centered short, concise, but mind opening and large perspective story! It was a pleasure to read!

This is probably one of the oddest books I have read. It was so endearing and urged me onward so I could ascertain why it was written, let alone what it was about. The mathematical conversations from the beginning married to the prosaic diary / prayers / recordings kept me intrigued.
There were aspects in which it was lacking that kept one foot out of the metaphorical pool in which this novel marinaded, and others that had me confused.
It's not a personal favourite but I enjoyed reading it nonetheless.

Although this wasn’t necessarily a novel I’d read again or really spoke to me, I appreciate how unique the idea was and how the lives intertwine. Thank you to NetGalley for the opportunity to read this.
