Synopses & Reviews
Jeff Winston, forty-three, didn't know he was a replayer until he died and woke up twenty-five years younger in his college dorm room; he lived another life. And died again. And lived again and died again -- in a continuous twenty-five-year cycle -- each time starting from scratch at the age of eighteen to reclaim lost loves, remedy past mistakes, or make a fortune in the stock market. 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?"
"[An] intriguing fantasy adventure....Grimwood has transcended genre with this carefully observed, literate and original story." Publishers Weekly
"Replay features one of the more thorough explorations of a theme one might ever hope to find. [The book] challenges us to take fresh views of that inexorable force, time." David Brin, The Los Angeles Times
"This delightful and completely engrossing story will appeal to a wide variety of readers." Library Journal
"One of the freshest, most engaging novels I've read in a long time." Dean Koontz
"An intriguing examination of the meaning and nature of time....Superb writing, unexpected twists and careful attention to detail." The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
In 1988 43-year-old Jeff Winston died of a heart attack. But then he awoke, and it was 1963; Jeff was 18 all over again, his memory of the next two decades intact. This time around Jeff would gain all the power and wealth he never had before. This time around he'd know how to do it right...until next time.
