    Description

    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?'

    Histoire géniale, lecteur à la voix un peu grave

    C’est un livre que j’avais déjà lu et dont j’avais gardé un excellent souvenir au point de souhaiter l’écouter. Le lecteur est un homme à la voix très grave et ça m’a dérangé dans un premier temps. Par contre il module plutôt bien sa voix en fonction des personnages.

    One of my all time favourites

    This is the one, every reader has one, dog eared, coffee stained, read repeatedly.

    The audio version didn't disappoint.

    I first read this in the 80s and King's novel about JFK's assassination has some similarities.

    The story poses an interesting question. Would you do things differently if you were given a second chance? How much of that decision is based on who you've become and how much is based on local knowledge? How much would you remember if you found yourself reliving your youth?

    Like Ground Hog day, the answer for most is in the nuance. Its not about drastic change, but rather fine tuning. Including of one's self.

    People say hindsight is an exact science. This tends to sway us towards being more negative about the lows and more positive about the highs.

    I think Replay is an example of how most of us would approach such a situation. And in that it has a reality that some other stories miss.

    Highly recommend,

    What a gem

    First off, the book is absolutely fantastic. It messed me up good, wrenched my heart, and stirred my emotions. It also made me appreciate life, and realize just how little time we all have here.

    Second, the narrator did a terrific job. If I could choose one audiobook to convince someone to start listening to books, this would be the one.

    His cadence was always on point, and he did the voices in a way I never had to wonder who he was speaking on behalf of. The different accents he portrayed seemed impeccable to me, and even the slight differences in male and female voices he did made things easy to follow. I can't wait to listen to more of the books he narrated.

    Don’t hesitate just buy

    Been a while since I loved every single minute of a newly found book. It can scratch the itch of everyone who likes time travel and at the same time drowns you in the characters’ ups and downs in a consuming way.

    SPOILER FREE REVIEW

    A real feel-good story that doesn't get boring.
    The reason this book is super difficult to review without spoilers, is because it has very little plot, making mostly everything a spoiler. The lack of plot is usually something that turns me off right away, but there's a feel-good essence about this book, and you're never bored with it either, even if it IS pretty darn slow in the beginning.

    I feel like Ken Grimwood glanced over way too many things that would have been great to have been dived a bit more into. I feel like too many times was something started, but not concluded, and I feel like maybe Mr. Grimwood might have written this book without planning anything ahead, as it often seems to go a certain direction, only for that direction never to be explored again.
    This honestly bothered me quite a bit (also the fact that, at one point, the difference between Cinema movies and TV is explained, and the conclusions he makes are dead wrong, but this is not a major thing in the book, it just really bothered me personally).

    So why did I give it four stars Overall?:
    Well, like I said, it's a nice feel-good book, and it does all seem like the exact thing someone might do, if he/she was granted this gift/curse of reliving ones life multiple times. It also explores, or at least touches upon, many interesting ideas and many emotions that one might have to go through, that are unique to an experience like this.
    A very interesting read. A very thoughtful read. And it's funny how the ending almost has an ominous feeling to it, even though it isn't.

    A similar (better?) book:
    I couldn't help but compare this book to a somewhat similar book; "The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August"
    Replay came first, with almost 30 years. But this other "Harry August" book has a very specific plot, and a great story, so I suggest maybe checking both of these two books out and see for yourself, which one you think is better.
    I will say, though, that I think these two books as very different in story, plot, and style, though extremely similar in concept.

    Would I recommend Replay?:
    Yes. Though it would never win any prices for outstanding writing, character development, or plot outlining. It makes sense that it won the "Best novel" at World Fantasy Award in 1988, as this was a great and somewhat groundbreaking idea and read back then. And like I said it really IS a nice read and has a very rare feel-good feeling to it, even though it isn't always happy.
    I wish it had more relevant and thought-through conflict though, but oh well, to each their own, and it's still a great and wholesome read, written in a somewhat unique way.

    Great!

    I am a science fiction /alternative reality fan on my heart (alternative reality = Dark Tower series by Stephen King etc) so this book ruled. It became so much more than I expected! So I will recommend it wildly! (Also Dark Tower, I think you will enjoy it if you like this! The movie is ruining the story btw.)

    One of the best books I've ever listened to

    A great story with a great narrator. A beautiful book about the delicacy of life and the struggle to make the most out of it.

    Absolutely amazing

    This was the first audiobook I listened to, and I must say that I enjoyed every second of it.

    The thougt of doing my life over again occured my mind - and I think also that of most people - several times already. What would I do if I could live my life over again?

    Replay gives form to this thougt, in ways I couldn't imagine. The various aspects of what makes life wortwhile, what the downsides of this power/phenomenom are and how maybe even I would react on my replay(s).

    If you're into time traveling / science fiction about time, this book is a mustread / mustlisten.
