In 1988, Jeff Winston dies of a heart attack only to wake up at Emory University in 1963, now only eighteen.

I found the viewpoint character of this story difficult to sympathise with*, even allowing for the fact that the story starts with a dramatic life event and the subsequent disorientation that arises from the resulting events. There are some very interesting ideas about the way that reincarnation and enlightenment are supposed to work, but in a particularly constrained environment that reads as just a little too wish fulfilment at times.

* I've reached the point where comfortably well off middle class baby boomers are really really difficult to identify with, at any point in their life span. This one doesn't help by transgressing the mores of the times, while not actually comprehending what it is that he does. ( )

For me, Replay is perhaps one of the most fascinating books I've ever read. When I first read it, I remember being dismayed by the endless opportunity that Jeff Winston faced in replaying his life. I panicked a lot at the notion that any moment of my one-life was a mis-step or a mistake. Like listening to Pink Floyd's Time and thinking that you really were "ticking away the moments that make up a dull day". We don't all have the luxury of stripping back twenty years' worth of life and starting again. I was horrified.

The message that I'm interpreting from this book - certainly from the ending - is that we don't have the luxury of rewriting our past lives or living them differently. The universal truth is that we don't replay, so in life we shouldn't put up with situations where we're patently unhappy or dissatisfied. In later replays, Jeff walks away from his tepid marriage, knowing that there's nothing he can change. He makes sure his wife is comfortably off, but leaves her - with the wisdom that to continue the cold war between them will slowly destroy both of them.

I think perhaps we all look backward to a 'golden era', defined by innocence and optimism. These things sometimes become eroded by the simple process of living. We call it baggage, we become jaded. But surely the message of Replay is that even in middle age, we still have options. (I'm not middle aged yet, by the way!) Isn't that what happens when Jeff stops replaying and starts living the rest of his life? The certainty of the replays is replaced by the uncertainty of the future. Rather than be disturbed by what's ahead of him, Jeff embraces the fact that all bets are off.
Summary

For me, Ken Grimwood created a masterpiece of modern fiction. Replay is a time travel story that reflects lifetimes of opportunity and regret. For all the requisite science-fiction elements, it's the passage of time and its effect on people. Maybe I'm at an age when I can appreciate the contrast between a young and optimistic me and the current, older model complete with regrets and sometimes jaded by the events in my life.

It's the human element in the book that speaks to me - the 'what if's and possibilities that Grimwood explores. He's one of those rare authors who immerse you in their fictional world to the point where you wonder if they've experienced this world.

There aren't many books that I have this kind of relationship with. Replay has been an inspiration to me on some levels, a cautionary horror story on others. ( )

my all-time favorite book ( )

What can I say? I am a sucker for time-travel books. It's been a few years since I read this, but I remember liking it quite a bit. I also remember thinking that it nevertheless didn't hold a candle to the two best time-travel tales I knew. One of those is the short story "By His Bootstraps" by Robert A. Heinlein; I'm pretty certain that's in the collection "Assignment in Eternity", and is my all time favorite time twister. The other is the novel "The Man Who Folded Himself" by David Gerrold. If this was at all enjoyable for you, I highly recommend either of those items. ( )

The future: hideous plagues, a revolution in sexual attitudes achieved and then reversed, triumph and tragedy in space, city streets haunted by null-eyed punks in leather and chains and spiked pink hair, death-beams in orbit around the polluted, choking earth...Christ, Jeff thought with a shudder, from this viewpoint his world sounded like the most nightmarish of science fiction.
"Chateaugay, at eleven-to-one odds.
He sold the Chevy, his books, stereo, and record collection....
...Now he had to place a bet, a large one. But how?"
All life includes loss. It's taken me many, many years to learn to deal with that, and I don't expect I'll ever be fully resigned to it. But that doesn't mean we have to turn away from the world, or stop striving for the best that we can do and be. We owe that much to ourselves, at least, and we deserve whatever measure of good may come of it.
