“A literary page-turner...A really compelling plotline.” 
—Wall Street Journal

“The only real magic here is Benjamin’s storytelling....Poignant...A testimony of love.” 
—Washington Post


“[An] amazing work of fiction...A dense, yet beautifully spun and satisfying tale that spans 50 years...Spare, yet gorgeously robust prose...and every page is imbued with [Benjamin’s] obvious storytelling skill....Begin 2018 with the book that could easily retain the year’s top spot, The Immortalists is a can’t-put-down, makes-you-think tale of a not-so-average American family.” 
—Associated Press

“The book spans decades, touching on the AIDs crisis, 9/11, race, and marriage. But, at its core, it’s an examination of free will and fate.”
–The New Yorker

“The reader will likely be thoroughly taken by the world of the Gold siblings, in all its shades of brilliant color. It's not a totally comfortable realm, since we know all too well how this tale's going to end, but getting there is lovely.” 
—NPR.org

—Elle
 
“Thrilling.” 
—Marie Claire

"A compelling family drama." 
—Esquire

—Entertainment Weekly (Must-List)


“Chloe Benjamin's family saga deftly explores destiny versus choice.” 
—US Weekly

“Benjamin’s tale is propulsive and colorful, capturing moving truths about the way we handle the knowledge that we all eventually die. . . . The premise . . . is brilliant and simple.” 
—Chicago Tribune

“Chloe Benjamin is a novelist to watch....The Immortalists weaves together philosophy and fortune-telling, to great effect....As deft and dizzying as a high-wire act...the reader is beguiled with unexpected twists and stylish, crisp prose....Unwittingly, this ambitious, unorthodox tale may change you too.” 
—The Economist

“Compelling.”

—The Seattle Times

“[Benjamin] casts a spell with...her affecting family saga." 
—Minneapolis Star Tribune


“A sweeping epic that will enchant you from cover to cover.” 
—Paste Magazine

“A page turner, as addictive as it is emotionally searing...Captivating, moving and addictive. It makes you think, feel, fall in love, and question how to best live your days left on earth.” 
—Lambda Literary 


"An intriguing setup for an immersive family saga." 
—Toronto Star 

“Chloe Benjamin’s The Immortalists is the very best kind of literary thriller, its suspense deriving from characters we care about deeply and surprises that feel embedded in our shared humanity. As profound a meditation on destiny as readers are likely to encounter.”

—Karen Joy Fowler

“A beautiful, compassionate, and even joyful novel. Chloe Benjamin has written an inspiring book that makes you think hard about what you want to do with the time you’re given. This is not really a book about dying
it's a book about how to live.” 
—Nathan Hill, author of The Nix

„Zu wissen, wie lange man zu leben hat, macht das Leben nicht leichter!“

Sabrina Hüper, Thalia-Buchhandlung Osnabrück

Vier Geschwister erhalten als Kinder die Prophezeiung über ihr jeweiliges Todesdatum. Schaffen sie es, sich dadurch nicht beeinflussen zu lassen und ihr Leben nicht danach auszurichten? Oder leben sie gerade deshalb umso intensiver?
Chloe Benjamin lässt uns jedes der vier Geschwister durch sein Leben hindurch begleiten und an deren ganz unterschiedlichem Umgang mit der Prophezeiung teilhaben.
Dabei versetzt sie sich so einfühlsam in ihre Charaktere, dass es dem Leser jedes Mal schwerfällt, den Bruder oder die Schwester gehen zu lassen... und sich am Ende ganz von ihrer Welt trennen zu müssen.
Ein ganz tolles, warmherziges, lesenswertes Buch!

Chloe Benjamin plays with a very interesting scenario, one that I have sometimes pictured myself. Combined with the amazing press covarage, it had the honor to be my first book of 2018. The first two parts were really powerful and moving, but the middle part got a little tiresome and predictable. I pushed through and I'm so immensly glad that I did, because the ending was beautiful and not predictable at all! 4 stars
