Replay by Ken Grimwood

Have you ever wished for a do-over?  Or wanted to relive your life with the benefit of hindsight?  In Replay, Jeff Winston gets the chance to do just that.  At age 43, he drops dead of a heart attack.  An instant later, he wakes up his 18-year-old self, with the knowledge and memories of his 43-year-old self.

He gets the chance to live his life over, making different decisions, changing the course of his life trajectory.  Everything is going great for Jeff, until he reaches age 43 and dies again, and then once again wakes up in his 18-year-old body, with the knowledge of both lives he’s relived.

I found this book to be well written and enjoyable to read.  The characters were well developed, and the premise is great.  I enjoyed this book and would love to read more with a similar premise.
