DNFing, actively read until 42%, listened while falling asleep until 77%, and I still just am not invested in any of the characters and though the premise is insanely cool, I don't think the authors done enough to make the reality feel close enough to ours to be relevant. ( )
I wad fully ready to love this book with the premise of knowing how much time you have left, and I was hooked by the first chapter. However, I did not connect with Amie or Ben's stories, and felt they dragged the pacing a bit.
Really fascinating, thought-provoking premise - everyone in the world suddenly knows how long they have to live. Erlick explores the complexities of such a tide change with compassion and intelligence. The writing is not beautiful, but is a quality story-driven exploration of human nature under extreme circumstances.
Thought provoking book about strings which predict the length of your life. The absolute best epilogue

It seems like any other day: You wake up, pour a cup of coffee, and head out. But today when you open your front door, waiting for you is a small wooden box. This box holds your fate inside: the answer to the exact number of years you will live. From suburban doorsteps to desert tents, every person on every continent receives the same box. In an instant, the world is thrust into a collective frenzy. Where did these boxes come from? What do they mean? Is there truth to what they promise? As society comes together and pulls apart, everyone faces the same shocking choice: Do they wish to know how long they'll live? And, if so, what will they do with that knowledge? The Measure charts the dawn of this new world through an unforgettable cast of characters whose decisions and fates interweave with one another: best friends whose dreams are forever entwined; pen pals finding refuge in the unknown; a couple who thought they didn't have to rush; a doctor who cannot save himself; and a politician whose box becomes the powder keg that ultimately changes everything.
