Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Pretty interesting"

    The reader did a good job bringing the book to life. I liked the premiss.

    "Worth reading!"
    What did you love best about Replay?

    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.

    "Good story, wrong cuss word for me."

    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.

    "Relive your life ..."

    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.

    "Wonderful Book! Left me wanting more."
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I was hooked in the first chapter and could tear myself away.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "I Want to Replay Over and Over:"

    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.

    "Superb!"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Fantastic time travel story"
    Where does Replay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Replay is excellent. The story has a singular science fiction premise, and it focuses on the implications and theories of that without dumping a dozen other sci-fi concepts into the mix. The characters are authentic, and you can tell that the author spent a lot of time considering how real people might handle the unusual circumstance of replaying a portion of their lives. Eventually, you'll wonder how the author is going to possibly conclude the book without a cliffhanger or just a dud ending. He pulls it off and it'll make you feel so alive in the process.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Replay?

    I'd love to write about the best part of this book, but I'll just leave it as a question - one that the author definitely pondered: If you were replaying your life and wondered if you were the only one, how could you find out?


    Would you be willing to try another one of William Dufris’s performances?

    I probably wouldn't listen to another William Dufris reading. The main problem I had was that every female character sounded almost the same - and that voice reminded me very much of Adam Sandler in drag on SNL. I needed to consciously look beyond that to appreciate the various female characters. Otherwise, he did a good job. There were a variety of accents, and he did a good enough approximation of them to get the point across.All this said, I've just come from reading some works read by Roy Dotrice, who is absolutely stunning, so it's a high standard.


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

    I can't say I'd want to listen to this all at once, but I was almost always wishing my commute was just a little bit longer to get to that next part.

    I've been listening to audio books for well over twenty years (even before audible was available). Secretly, I wish I could be a narrator.

    "I liked it"

    As a Christian, I don't believe in reincarnation or parallel universes, but the story helped me buy into the possibility. How many of us say musingly, "If I knew then what I know now things would be different"? What choices would we make differently in life: try to become rich and powerful, try to change the world, or do we simply try to become better people? Listen to Replay and find out?
