I'm betting this book has a cult following, a core group of readers who nod knowingly to one another when they meet and discover their mutual connection.

I could not put this down (a dramatic change from the previous book I labored through), and though it falls outside my usual reading tastes, "Replay" will be a story that remains with me for the rest of my life, however long that may be.

Hugely entertaining, Grimwood's story of time's existence on different planes, the concept of varied realities branching off into the continuum, of choices made, the pain of loss felt over and over, all of these ideas and a myriad more are laid bare for the reader to explore.

I have to wonder where Ken Grimwood is now, what moment he is replaying, and what the hell do any of us know for sure?
