Book Recommendation - Replay by Ken Grimwood

If I had to recommend 10 books of fiction I know this would be one of them. I'm replaying rereading it now for the 3rd, 4th or 5th time? I would also recommend reading it one chapter at a time.

If I could go back 20 years would I still be the same loser running volleyball leagues in Fort Wayne, Indiana? Of course not... I'd find a way to put all the money I had down on a preseason bet of the Bears beating the surprising Patriots in Super Bowl XX, and then go from there...

From Lost Book Archives:

In Replay Jeff Winston, a 43-year-old, dies of a heart attack and upon awakening finds himself back at college in 1963, in his 18-year-old body and having all the memories of the life he just exited. This is the beginning of a series of replays in which Jeff Winston lives his life over and over again.

Hell of a book. Interesting concept. I read it years and years ago, and if I can dig it out of the pile, I'm going to read it again. Thanks for jarring the memory!
