In 1988, Jeff Winston dies of a heart attack only to wake up at Emory University in 1963, now only eighteen. Much seems the same, but the only difference is he remembers what happened during his life and what the future holds. He's not sure how this happened, if it will happen again, or what to do with the lifetime of knowledge he has acquired.… (mere)

A much better version of "Groundhog Day" (written long before the film) where the protagonist dies in the middle of his life only to find himself reborn with the same consciousness, only to die again at the same precise moment. Ok, it's not just like Groundhog Day, but it scratches the same itch.

Truly loved this novel. ( )

Loved this. A great story that bore the telling over and over again. It's hard not to compare time travel stories with others but if you liked Groundhog Day and the Time Traveller's Wife, you will probably enjoy this too.

Replay is not a typical time travel book. Sure, the main character travels through time in a way, but he has no power over it. This is a book about second chances, about reliving your youth over and over again. It's a book about love, life, death, money, power, friendship and inevitable loss that waits at the end of the way.

Read this book and enjoy the ride! ( )

Interesting idea, what if you could relive your life with your current memories, what would you do? This is exactly what happens to Jeff Winston. He falls down dead over his desk in 1988 and wakes up the next moment in his dorm room in 1963.

As unlikely as it is that something like this would happen to the reader, it is hard to not think about what to do in such a situation, and how to respond to it.

Try to make money from knowledge? Accelerate technical progress? Change the path of history? Or smaller, change some bad decision? Save a marriage before it's too late?

We get to see Jeff try several of the ideas above with various consequences, but mostly it seems he make sure to have as much sex as possible. This is maybe significant for my conclusion. The idea is more interesting and better than the execution. It is absolutely not a bad book and I did enjoy it, but I don't think it's a great book. It doesn't go into any depth on the philosophical aspects, nor the technical ones. Same with physics or religion. Maybe he wanted the reader to explore those areas unaffected but why then write a book?

Further more, the relationships are superficially described and in many cases even described as superficial. There is character growth. Barely. And so on. All in all, an interesting book. I'm happy I've read it, but I wonder if there is someone that has done something on this theme in a better way (apart from the movie Groundhog Day). ( )

The premise of this book—that people can replay parts of their lives over and over again—drew me in from the beginning. It allows Grimwood to explore lots of different scenarios, at least shallowly. None of them quite worked for me, but the character's choices were always believable. By the end, the book gets quite sappy, and it feels cliched. The novel would have benefited from more internal conflict. ( )

The future: hideous plagues, a revolution in sexual attitudes achieved and then reversed, triumph and tragedy in space, city streets haunted by null-eyed punks in leather and chains and spiked pink hair, death-beams in orbit around the polluted, choking earth...Christ, Jeff thought with a shudder, from this viewpoint his world sounded like the most nightmarish of science fiction.
"Chateaugay, at eleven-to-one odds.
He sold the Chevy, his books, stereo, and record collection....
...Now he had to place a bet, a large one. But how?"
All life includes loss. It's taken me many, many years to learn to deal with that, and I don't expect I'll ever be fully resigned to it. But that doesn't mean we have to turn away from the world, or stop striving for the best that we can do and be. We owe that much to ourselves, at least, and we deserve whatever measure of good may come of it.
