I read this in high school and remember really liking it, the basic idea of reliving your life over and over again fascinates me. I think the story is very well executed and the narration was pretty good. The only part I didn't enjoy was Star Sea, but it wasn't too big a part of the storyline. 8/8 would recommend again.
A story I will read or listen to again. I would like to see a sequel to it., one that would refer back to this story, but just enough to create an interesting continuation.
It was ok I guess. I really don't see what all the fuss is about with this book.
The old movie trope about why is that idiot going up the stairs to investigate a noise in the spooky house? Yeah that happens a lot in this book.
The reading was ok but every time the reader voiced the main character all I heard was a bad Clinton impersonation.
How the author thought Groundhog Day was a rip off of this story I have no idea.
Bottom line, great idea, poor execution.
Love this book! the narrator was smooth and concise, without being to wordy. Great story of something no I have never read about. And probably never will again.
I first read this novel back when it was first published in the 80s, if memory serves it was a monthly selection of the SFBC. 20 year old me, loved this book, I remember reading it cover to cover in one session. I couldn't put it down.
Now, all these years later, it's average. It's not a bad novel, the story is well told, it's an enjoyable way to fill some time, but try as I might, I cannot for the life of me find what it was exactly that made this novel so enthralling when I was younger.
This book came out in 1988 but I'd never heard of it until I saw it on Audible. Wow, what a story. Great love, great loss, great wealth, great happiness, and profound sadness. One of the best books of the year without a doubt.
Really interesting take on a time theme or life do over. The characters were great and it was interesting to try to solve the puzzle along with them. Definitely a great read.
