    "great storyline"

    Never have listened or read a book like this. Loved the fact I didn't know what would come next. I would have given a "5" except it got a little slow in some areas.

    "Really liked this book"

    Very thought provoking and entertaining at the same time. I stopped to think how I would do it the second time around.

    "One too many replays"

    The premise of this book was a good one. And because I like stories that include time travel, I ended up giving this book four stars. But I can't help believing that the author could have improved his product by including one or two less replays. The large number of replays probably required that he make large jumps in time to avoid having the book run longer than it did. I kept on encountering non-sequiturs before additional listening gave me the perspective that the scene was several years removed from the previous one. The transitions were very dramatic. There were many loose ends left at the conclusion of the book but that wasn't necessarily a detriment. Readers are left to conclude whatever they wish about the reality or the cause of the replays. Far-fetched but entertaining. Well worth it on a BOGO sale.

    "Language"

    Turned it off pretty quickly due to cursing. That much in the first few minutes isn't worth my time.

    "Hated It!"

    I listend to about two hours of this crap, and that is all I could handle. It seems like an interesting concept, but it was boring on every level. If you grew up in the 60's it may appeal to you. I hated the fact that there was very little dialogue, but rather the author droned on and on about every minute detail. I hate that style of writing.

    "Possibly the Worst Book I Have Ever Listened To!"

    I have listened to over 400 books and I have learned to choose my books very carefully in order to avoid disappointment and wasted time!

    I rarely choose a book with a rating of less than 4-Stars and, due to this rule, I have had the pleasure of listening to 100's of great books.

    I can only member one other book which I purchased of 4 stars or greater which I did not like and that was over four years ago....until now!

    This book was rated as a 4.1 Stars while I only have given it 2 stars.

    The Sci-fi plot-line is weak at best but the writing is absolutely awful.

    The further I got into the book, the more obvious it was that this book could not be saved!

    Towards the end of the book (the last 45 minutes or so) I was close to giving-up on going on to another book.

    The only reason I finished the book was so that I could write this review with the integrity of a person who actually finished the book!

    By the time the book ended, I felt as though I had listened to someone scratching their fingers nails on a chalk board.

    So the question I find myself asking is how so many listeners found this book to be worthy of four stars?

    The answer may lie in the fact that the book is classified as a Sci-Fi book and, it has always appeared to me that Sci-fi listeners sometimes mix-up what the see as a good story line for a well written book.

    In this case, I feel the book is neither a good story nor is it well written.

    There certainly will not be a Replay iof this book!

    "I Loved It!"

    Great story. To be able to go back and do it all again, and again. . loves lost, found, and lost again. Great parallels to real life lessons in this story. Very moving, a great listen.

    "Still thinking about this...."

    I loved this unusual book and the way in which it made me stop and consider life and all its quirks. I kept trying to imagine what I would have done in similar circumstances. What a great premise for a book. I hope indeed that they make it into a movie. What a fun book to read (hear).

    "Riviting"

    I loved this book from beginning to end. I wish it had continued for 2 more volumes. It made my mind think of posibilites for days. Great choice for that credit you have been itching to spend.

    "Uninteresting"

    An interesting concept similar to the one in "Groundhog Day." However, it didn't explore character motivation or any purpose for coming back again and again. The love story was dull and I never really cared or understood the connection with the two main characters.
