Jeff. Very authentic.
Witty, calm, likable, charming.
I've always been intrigued by the thought of reliving my life, knowing then what I know now. This book took me on such a journey over and over again, testing out what would happen during various scenarios. The ending was a happy and hopeful one. Can't wait to read another book by this author!
Yes. The storyline was interesting and kept me thinking about how I would act (and what decisions I would make) in similar situations.
I'd say that Jeff Winston was my favorite character just because his observations/reactions helped to tie all of the characters story lines together, put yourself in the story and think about how you'd react under such extraordinary circumstances.
As I said in the headline... I thought I was listening to Bill Clinton every time Jeff Winston would speak. William Dufris did a great job characterizing each person but his "Jeff" voice kept me picturing "Bill" going back and reliving each life. It was funny in a sense but it didn't take away from the story in any way.
I listen mainly while I commute to/from work. There are lots of intriguing events in the story and I did find myself sitting in the truck a little longer just to get to a point where I was able to break away from the story for a while.
I liked the fact that everything wasn't neatly wrapped up at the end of the story. Some things just can't be explained and while there was some degree of closure, I thought it was good that the author didn't find a need a to force a complete explanation at the end.
Although the first section of this novel was predictable, and I began to think it would be a long slog to finish, the plot suddenly took a twist I hadn't expected and wow! Suspenseful and gripping to the end, and REPLAY ends up being a novel well worth reading.
Audible is Awesome. Like to 'read' when I am driving. The Sooners will win big in 2015
A very nice read....good to the last word. Storm Seal of Approval!
Give it a try.
This guy wrote a good book, but why did he have to curse Jesus name around 20 times. Pick a different cuss word, and have more audience. I'm done with him.
My preference for a good story is something totally unusual and not run of the mill stuff. Give me something I haven't heard before.
This brought up so much emotion for my own life. It makes you examine how you live and what you've done. It's like an evaluation of how to run in life and what's the most important. One of the best books in the Audible library.
I was hooked in the first chapter and could tear myself away.
So thought provoking and what a fun read!! Enjoyed every bit of this book.
I am a young-executive with a voracious appetite for great stories. I read and listen constantly, and am very proud of my book collection.
This book is one of those wonderful surprises that highlight the true genius of the human imagination. The concept is simple, and the writing is excellent. Ken Grimwood's insight into the future world from the point of view of 1986 is stunning--Muslim Extremism! He is able to effectively present the excitement and emotion of being stuck in a perpetual 25 year time loop. It really is about second, and third, and fourth chances etc. What would you do differently if you were able to re-live your vulnerable and naive early twenties until 43?
I cannot speak highly enough of this book, and wish Mr. Grimwood would have kept his theme going longer.
I have always been interested in the concept of living my life over again but knowing everything I know now. This book explores many of the extremes to which this concept could be taken. It is a very satisfying read.
