How To Stop Time by Matt Haig

Rating: 3.0

Tom has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. Tom has lived history--performing with Shakespeare, exploring the high seas with Captain Cook, and sharing cocktails with Fitzgerald. Now, he just wants an ordinary life. Not aging sounds like a great problem to have but, when people start noticing, it is time to move.

This flashes back and forth in time showing us the many lives that Tom has lived.  While this started off as enjoyable it quickly felt like a forced history lesson and it dragged (maybe how Tom felt living so long). A better time travel book would be The Time Traveler's Wife
