This is a brilliantly-articulated story about the age-old "What if?" questions that can come up when we examine our lives. While I usually avoid genres that deal in fantasy and time-travel, this book made the whole "back to the future" idea palatable and even seem possible. Due to some accidental metaphysics by a spa masseur, the main character is sent back seven years and gets a do-over, which causes her a few anguished re-decisions, and she learns that it's not necessarily any easier, even with 20/20 hindsight, the second time around.
I did wish the author had developed one of the story arcs a little more, as one plot line was left hanging. But perhaps that's like life, we are always left "hanging" in one sense or another as our own personal stories evolve.
The narration was marred only by some extended squealing and unnecessary high volume groans, but on balance it worked just fine.

I was sooo bored by this book, I almost stopped listening several times and should not have forced myself to complete it. I had anticipated a "guilty pleasure" kind of read but did not find the story or the characters particularly captivating. The lead character is someone I would definitely not care for in real life, and I never grew to care much for what she did or what her choices would be. In all fairness, this is not the type of book I would normally gravitate toward, so I may be a little harder on it in my review than it deserves.
