    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I took a chance on this book - I wasn't familiar with the author and only saw one other review but I really liked the synopsis. I'm glad I did. It was quirky and entertaining.

    In 1988, 43-year-old Jeff Winston died of a heart attack. But then he awoke, and it was 1963; Jeff was 18 all over again, his memory of the next two decades intact. This time around, Jeff would gain all the power and wealth he never had before. This time around he'd know how to do it right. Until next time.

    What made the experience of listening to Replay the most enjoyable?

    I listened to this book after hearing some one review the book on NPR. It was a summer series a few years ago where people talked about their favorite books and after hearing the review, I had to read it. Don't we all wonder what it would be like to live your life over? Don't you wonder what you'd do differently? This book explores the idea.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story line was great. Also liked the fact that the early parts of the book take place in areas of Atlanta that I am familiar with.


    Have you listened to any of William Dufris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Don't know if I've lisened to any of Mr. Dufris's other performances.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, definitely. I found it easy to get into.


    Any additional comments?

    You won't be disappointed.

  • To Say Nothing of the Dog: Or How We Found the Bishop's Bird Stump at Last

    In this Hugo-winner from Connie Willis, when too many jumps back to 1940 leave 21st century Oxford history student Ned Henry exhausted, a relaxing trip to Victorian England seems the perfect solution. But complexities like recalcitrant rowboats, missing cats, and love at first sight make Ned's holiday anything but restful - to say nothing of the way hideous pieces of Victorian art can jeopardize the entire course of history.

    Yes, it was a charming story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was simple and playful.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book so much, I read the rest of the series and was equally pleased with Ms. Willis's other books.
