Summary

Jeff Winston's life is not how he imagined it would be.  

An unhappy marriage and unrewarding job - and then he died. Aged 43. And woke up again, back in his college room, in 1963, age 18. With all his memories intact. If he applies those memories, he can be rich - he can have anything he wants - in this new chance at life.  

Until he dies at 43 and wakes up in his 18-year-old body again...and again in a continuous 25-year cycle, each time starting from scratch at the age of 18 to reclaim lost loves, make a fortune or remedy past mistakes. And then, in one replayed life, he meets a woman who knows all too well what he is experiencing.   

Replay is a novel of gripping adventure, romance and fascinating speculation on the nature of time. Replay asks the question, 'What if you could live your life over again?'

A True Classic of Science Fiction

Wonderful book examining the Time Travel genre. A proper grown up novel!
Replay starts slowly and builds it’s momentum, though not ever frenetic, it instils a real need to find out what happens next.
It draws out the story in such a superbly written style, you will enjoy not only the story but the beautiful way it is told
One piece of advice I would add is, don’t give up on it in the first couple of chapters, persevere, it is worth it

Epic!!!!

I absolutely loved this book, listened to it in two days and hated having to take breaks.
Best time travel book I've read.
Gone straight into my top books of all time.
I usually start another straight away, but I feel like I need time to settle down after finishing this one.

I liked the premise of the story but the actions and characters made it really hard for me to like and connect with them.

Great concept - slightly disappointing ending

Won’t spoil it for anyone but the book had me intrigued all the way through, the ending was a bit of a let down as I was expecting more in terms of answers.

Is it Time Travel?

I approached this book hoping for a great time travel story. But this is a time travel story in the same sense that Groundhog Day is, meaning the author is just exploring the idea of being able to do-over parts of your life. That sort of story seems like it was better done by other authors (some before, some after this book was published); it's just not very well written. And the cringey erotic scenes are worthy of a Bad Sex in Fiction Award nomination. An unchallenging and unenlightening time-passer of a book, but not my cup of tea.

A brilliant ride from start to finish.

One of my favourite books of all time. Was a no brainer when I saw it available on audible. I was not disappointed. Genuinely unputdownable (is that a word?). The narrator was perfect and did a great job. One that I’ll definitely be listening to again.

groundhog Day +++

Gripping listen, akin to Groundhog Day but reliving years not one day.
I've often had the same idea of starting from a key point and making a different choice.
Be careful what you wish for !
