Publisher's 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?'

Excellent - captivating and poignant

This book has been on my "to read" list for years, so it was great to see it appear on Audible. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would really and found it enchanting and thought-provoking. Certainly recommended!

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.

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.

Wonderfully Rich

The ability to combine an initiative take on a well explored genre with such a descriptive and compelling world the characters find themselves living in is truly immersive. One of favourite reads of all time. Finished this in two sittings. Books like this are all too rare a treat.

inevitably overly sentimental

Good premise if not original. Starts well but there are only so many times a life can be relived without it becoming boring and the journey becoming internal and ultimately depressing and futile.
Managed to finish but it was a bit of a slog. Nothing surprising .
Narrator was reasonable .

Had a hard time likeing the characters

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

Finished in two days !!! I haven’t read anything quite like it

This really is a very good story ,truly original time travel concept , almost torture in a way.
There is a love story in there (men be warned ) but it is integral to the plot and not gratuitous or slushy.
Very well read indeed .. I went to bed early Friday because I was tired . I was still listening at 3.40 am . I just finished it at 12.15 am .
It’s quite an old book but not dated however it’s not the start of a series as is the case these days .
I would give the story and the narration a solid ten out of ten .

A unique storyline

One of the most unique storylines I’ve herd in a long time. Raises the question of what would you try to change if you lived your life over again ?

Good. So good. So so so good.

First book in years where I couldn't predict the plot and got pleasantly surprised by it. The premise, the depth of thoughtfupness and philosophical sophistication and finess with which the author deftly delivered a voyage of full textures of emotions were truly remarkable. Rip Ken Greenwood.

Unique take on time travel

An interesting take on time travel. A comfortable story of life and the different way things can go. Some fun moments, quite moving in places, but no real excitement.
