Today, it’s my choice. I don’t want this life anymore. Today, I’m in control.… If I’m not brave enough, I’ll think of her.
When childhood friend Victoria rejects his love, Jeremy takes his life on his 20th birthday.
On his 21st birthday, he wakes to find Victoria holding his hand, blissfully in love with him. Jeremy can’t remember the previous year, but he savors the miracle of waking up alongside the woman he loves.
The next time he wakes, two years have passed and Jeremy is now a spectator of his own life. Victoria has given him a child, but the man alongside her is a cruel, egotistical, seemingly unknowable Jeremy. Is it amnesia? Insanity? Or has Jeremy been cursed for his selfish, destructive act?
This strange, beautiful novel asks an eternal question: What is the value of life and love?

This was a decent listen though the story gets a little frustrating. I didn't realize it had a religious message until the last 10 minutes, otherwise I probably wouldn't have ordered it. But I'm glad I didn't know because it was worth the listen. Nick Podel is as usual the best narrator of all time.
