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. Replay is a novel by Ken Grimwood first published by Arbor House in It won the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel. The novel tells of a year- old. Grimwood used the pseudonym Alan Cochran on his novel Two Plus Two ( Doubleday, ), but in Replay he offered a clue to Two Plus Two's true author with.
A Hugo Award winner from the eighties. Ken Grimwood explores a scenario where the protagonist has an opportunity to relive his life four different times. Needless to say he keeps making some mistakes he wants to correct in succeeding attempts. A lot of fun. Like l lebowski4 Dec 30, I really like the middle pages of this book. I have never read anything like this book.
Just finished Replay and couldn't find much real discussion online. The most recent threads about it here were a couple years old, so I thought it fair game to make a post.
Found this interesting post about an interesting connection between Pamela Phillips and the real-world person Julia Phillips.
Who else wants to see Starsea so bad?
I liked the emphasis on universal love and empathy. I was okay with no physical explanation for the phenomena because this very clearly wasn't science fiction to me, it was a philosophical and spiritual book.
Pamela but moreso Jeff were rather bland characters, but I think that was both intentional and significant. Jeff pretty much doesn't have a single character trait by the end that didn't come from his replay experience, and Pam had a couple.
But I felt they were meant to be surrogates for us, the readers. I felt myself agreeing with Pamela over Jeff mostly, about the importance of at least making the attempt to change something about the world and help others.
However, in the end none of it mattered. They take him to the future and he has to adapt to everything that has changed - and we all know there's a lot of it. It starts with In the Garden of Iden.
The whole series is now available in ebook format, and DRM free since Tor is the publisher. City at Worlds End by Edmund Hamilton does have some time travel elements to it as well.
It's available for free from Manybooks. I think the author is Ken Grimwood. In Replay, the protagonist dies after completing his normal life span, then wakes up in the past, in a younger version of himself but with full memory of everything that has happened. I have never read anything like this book.
It is fascinating on many levels, scientifically, and romantically. I thought that the author could have done a better job of developing his main love interest though.
I don't understand why Jeff falls in love with her.
I also felt that the last portion of the book joe goes on needlessly, though it is saved but the last 10 pages. I think the author also modeled himself after this character, envisioning the perfect character, and perfect life.
I can't think of too many faults that Jeff has, if any.
