Description

All Thomas Weaver wanted was death. What he got was time travel. 

Thomas Weaver, haunted by a teenage tragedy, lived a wasted life. He closed his eyes for what he believed was the last time in 2016, but opened them again in his teenage bedroom and body in 1976. Now a middle-aged man in his teenage body, he sets out to fix everything he did wrong in his first life. A budding serial killer in home room, a possible new romance, and high school algebra complicate his plans.

What would you do, if you could do it all again?

Includes a special bonus note read by the author.

Familiar Premise, but Superb !! Great Performance.

There are a lot of books in the time-travel sub-genre about going back to re-live part of one's early life. But there was something about the review I read that encouraged me to take a flyer and try this one. Now, I'd like to do the same for you. The principal character is intentionally problematic, but engaging. The secondary characters are interesting and emotionally engaging. The plot has many unexpected turns. There is a good deal of both thinking and excitement. The writing is well-constructed, well edited and full. And......the narration is REALLY good. Heller voices a number of semi-noir detective novels and his delivery is so unexpectedly spot-on that it is hard to believe. I don't know who selected him for this book -- I wouldn't have thought of it in a million years -- but it is genius. There are several other titles in the series, at least one of which is out in print (though not Audible yet.) I really look forward to more from this author !

Entertaining Story and Awesome Performance!

It has been a long while since I have 5 starred a book. I have almost 1000 books in my audible library and the really good ones are getting harder to find.

This one is pure entertainment. Fresh concept, engaging characters, thorough world building and a real performance (as opposed to dull narration).

In the first 5 minutes or so, a guy decides to end his life after years and years of living with guilt over a childhood accident. That is really where the story begins - he gets a do over.

The journey is fun, entertaining and you will feel good about the ending. Don't skip the author's note at the end, it was interesting. I have always wondered where author's insipration comes from.

great narration, gripping story

I haven't listened to Johnny Heller before but this makes me a fan. His performance is subtle but so moving in places. The story was satisfying time travel but also a mix of mystery, and a love story. The interaction of the kids playing D&D were nostalgic in a Stranger Things way. Definitely recommended and I'm looking forward to hearing Michael Hollister's story play out in the next volume.

Fascinating concept and conceptualization

I was intrigued with this concept and became totally immersed in Thomas's story. I didn't at first care for the narrator's voice, but was impressed at his ability to naturally deliver lines by multiple characters and came to enjoy his telling of the story. The epilogue as nicely done, and the author's explanation of how this book evolved was fascinating. The preview of the next book leaves me breathlessly waiting to dig deeper into the author's perception of reincarnation, akashic records and how souls seem to travel together, repeatedly influencing each other's life paths.

Shawn Inmon's unique outlook and talents.

I have listened to all of his books that involve reincarnation. The 'Life' books. The narrators were great and so were the books. I love his ideas and imagination. I think that most of us who love time travel have a strong desire for do overs in life. Many listeners and readers will praise his stories. I second the motion.

Good book if you like sci-fi or time travel

It's a darn good Time travel book. The thing I hate is that the book just ends the story then starts the entro to a second book that isn't available yet. It could have included more antics or maturity of the main players. Even though they are in the body of teens, they forget that there maturity should be appropriate to the age they did at. If the book was half the price or credit, then I would expect less.
The narrative is good, but the narrator was 5 star.

Really makes you think

This book has many twists and turns and makes you think about each one individually and how it affects the rest of these characters lives. It is easy to translate into your own situation And make sure to pause and wonder what you could have done different and what would have changed if you did

Great read.....short for the $$

Great read. Really like the story. There are a number of these. They should combine them. $20 or 1 Credit for an 8 hour book is a terrible value

WOW! Incredible! Time Travel Twist!

I'm fascinated by time travel and this book was a breath of fresh air. I just finished reading "In Times Like These" by Nathan Van Coops and really enjoyed it. However, this book I LOVED.

It wasn't so much about the mechanics of time travel as much as it was about the effects of time travel on lives and how the simplest things can have such a huge impact.

I have seen this book several times and passed it by because of the cover. I'm not going to lie. A book about a little boy? No thanks. That's not what it was about, though. It was about redemption and loss and regret. It was amazing and thought provoking and so very different.

One of my favorite books of all time is Stephen King's 11-23-1963. This book was kind of like that, but much shorter and faster. I bought this book on 1-21 and I'm already on the 5th book in the series and it's only the 29th.

Give this book two chapters and you'll be hooked.

One of the best books I’ve read in months.

This book was a major tree. It was well written, well narrated, and a really unique take on “time travel”. This book really didn’t seem to be based on time travel as much as reincarnation, maybe. Nevertheless, the characters were so well fleshed out, and the story kept me engaged like none other. Honestly, I don’t know if I read another book that kept me this engaged. It really was a treat. I’m thankful to have found this book. Onto the next one… Although I don’t know if I am looking forward to it as much due to who the central character is. Only time will tell…
