Kristin | 44 comments I finished The Eighth Life today and watched a fantastic Youtube interview on Eric Anderson's channel Lonesome Reader with the author and translators. I also participated with other readers on Goodreads reading and discussing 50-page sections of this book. What a memorable book!

I really enjoyed reading your comments too! I think it really helps to read a book of this length with others. Everyone's insights enhanced my experience.
