SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 22 YEARS OLD AND TOTAL AHOLE
Like many other reviewers, I picked this up because of my love for REPLAY, by Ken Grimwood. A book I picked up at a library clearance sale about 30 years ago. This book is not bad, but it is not Replay. While Replay started off the bat with a reincarnation, Repeat starts with a hour and a half of a loser droning on about his loserness. This is closer to a Neil Simon play. The emphasis is on being funny. I will admit that after I got over the pity party and realized it was not going to be Replay, I did find it laugh out loud funny in parts. In this reincarnation the main character goes all the way back to his birth. He also seems to be sent back in time by his witch wife. A wife that he loves and that loves him. He is unhappy because his career never went anywhere. I quit at about four hours. Not that the book was bad, it just wasn't what I was interested in. I am hoping in his second life he learned that being married to someone you love and having a good family is better than a successful career, but this is not a spoiler, cause I don't know.

This was fun book that is a similar storyline to Replay. However, the conversation is a bit stodgy at times and this story does not go into as many specifics through each timeline as Replay. All things considered, this is a good time loop story, but not the best I've listened to.
