REPLAY by Ken Grimwood

Replay is an oldie, but a goodie. If you haven't read this one, what are you waiting for. This book was first published in 1986. I know, I know, a lifetime ago! But I have to say that it is one of my all time favorites.

I have read this book at least three times over the years. And it was the inspiration for my own book, The Many Lives of Ivy Wells, which is book one of four in the series.

This is the story of 43 year old Jeff Winston, who died and woke back up in college, at 18 years old, with all of his memories intact. He remembers growing up, marrying, having a child, living his life, and dying. Again. And Again. Each time, he gets the chance to change the way his life will go, knowing the mistakes he made the last time.

I found this novel to be such a fun and interesting read. It certainly makes you think about how you would change things in your life if you ever got the chance to do it all over again, knowing what you know now.

Ken Grimwood wrote a couple of other books, that I have not yet read, but they are in my To Read Pile.

Have you read Replay? If so, tell me your thoughts on the book.
