Today I’m on the tour for The Measure by Nikki Erlick, thank you to Anne at Random Things Tours for organising it and inviting me to take part and thank you to the author and the publisher for my copy.

Pages: 368

Synopsis: Eight Ordinary people. One extraordinary choice.

It seems like just another morning.

You make a cup of tea. Check the news. Open the front door.

On your doorstep is a box.

Inside the box is the exact number of years you have left to live.

The same box appears on every doorstep across the world.

Do you open yours?

My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧

My. Thoughts: thought provoking and heartbreaking, what a brilliant debut novel!

You wake up one morning with a box on your doorstep that says “the measure of your life lies within” would you open it?!

This is the dilemma that faces the entire world one morning in March & we’re following 8 people who make the decision that is right for them and then have to face the consequences!

Each chapter is told from the perspective of one of the main characters I love a multi perspective book so once I realised this I was hooked, I did worry that it would get confusing with their being so many but Nikki’s writing is flawless, subtle differences in each of the characters made it easy to tell who was who.

You find yourself really getting lost in the story and wishing that you could change the fate of some of these characters. Some were easy to love and support, others were easy to hate. The clever part was the fact that she created characters who seem like they’re on the fence and you don’t know what side they will be on until the last minute.

I devoured this book. I couldn’t put it down!

This is one of the best dystopian novels I’ve ever read and cannot recommend it highly enough.
