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.

    "Wow live many lives, own each one, love love love"

    loved it. replay gives me a different way of looking at day to day living and the choices we are so free to make. time. inconsequential floating about through life. it is all about the love we feel, we give, that's what matters. how we choose to live and who we choose to experience life with.

    Story
    "Review of Replay"

    The story began with a very interesting premise. However, it eventually became a tedious work due to too many "replays" experienced by the main character although each was laced with different occurrences. The reader also began modulating his voice volume downward about 1/2 way through the book in an apparent attempt to add drama. Unfortunately, this resulted in a maddening series of rewinding, turning up the volume, and turning it down again when the reader resumed a normal speaking volume. An audiobook must be heard to be fully enjoyed per the author of Perfect Survival at perfectsurvivaldotcom.

    Story
    "didn't think I would like it"

    I checked a synopsis after starting this, and was prepared to be bored by the concept. in fact, the first quarter of the book dragged for me. I actually left it running, because I hate to waste an expensive audiobook by not finishing it. I found myself surprised by the story, a bit later, and felt it get more engaging. by the second third of the book, I was listening to it full time. "I couldn't put it down", we used to say. the feeling was the same, even if the medium has changed. I enjoyed this enough to recommend it to my mom. The narrator did a fine, too; the charactees were all distinguishable by unique tonal characteristics. The story only had one or two unfinished loose ends, to my way of thinking. I even laughed out loud at some of the humorous parts.

    Story
    "Interesting idea; narration and writing not great"

    The central premise of the book is an interesting one. Unfortunately the author doesn't follow the writer's dictum "show them, don't tell them." There is a great deal of exposition, narration, and summary of the protagonist's life. Everything is spelled out, the reader doesn't get to arrive at any conclusions alone. The story begins in the 1960's, and the philosophic musings of the book seem straight of the 60's and 70's. The narrator doesn't help. He often emphasizes the ends of sentences in ways that make the already sentimental and solipsistic writing seem even more so. Lastly, he makes the main character sound like a bad SNL imitation of Bill Clinton. I finished the book, but I was ready for it to be over about the half-way point.

    "LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!!!"

    This book isn't really like groundhog day at all, he doesn't just relive one day, he relives his entire life. I love this book. I recommend it to everyone who loves to read. The characters are very likable and there is a love interest. I had to listen again because it was such a great first read and I don't think it'll ever get old. Don't sit and think about it, just listen. You won't be disappointed.

    "new and engaging, but dissapointing"

    definitely worth listening to, but I'd have preferred a different ending. ... ok, I'd have preferred an ending of any reasonable kind. i just finished listening and am actually angry at the author for leaving the story where he did. grrr.
