    My third Grimwood book and I d say it s definitely my least favorite, though it s still good Has a very slow start before it really gets going in the middle and near the end I couldn t put it down This was his first book and it shows, but as always Grimwood has a ...

    Breakthrough was apparently Grimwood s debut novel In some ways I can tell there are times where I wanted to rush him through some of the details and the medical talk It s not that it was not enjoyable, but I was anxious to get to the good stuff In other ways I can see the same intriguing sci fi thriller that I loved so much in Replay Elizabeth has had epileps...

    Confusing Science fiction and horror, not my thing.

    What would it be like if Michael Crichton had teamed up with Nora Roberts to write a science thriller set just a couple of years in the future, and then brought in Ray Bradbury to tweak the ending I suspect the by product of that collaboration might be very much like this book.The late Ken Grimwood is not a household name I ve had his third novel, Replay, on my to read list for a while That one won a World Fantasy Award for best novel in 1988, and has a pretty strong cult following Diehard What would it be like if Michael Crichton had teamed up with Nora Roberts to write a science thriller set just a couple of years in the future, and then brought in Ray Bradbury to tweak the ending I suspect the by product of that collaboration might be very much like this book.The late Ken Grimwood is not a household name I ve had his third novel, Replay, on my to read list for a while That one won a World Fantasy Award for best novel in 1988, and has a pretty strong cult following Diehard Replay fans seem to also hold this, Grimwood s 1976 debut novel, in high regard, so I decided to check out the earlier work first.Our heroine is Elizabeth Austin, a woman in her mid to late 20s who has suffered from epilepsy ever since she was a young girl Elizabeth s occasional seizures are ...

    I was amused reading this, because I ve read Replay twice, a book I consider among my very favorites You can see that Grimwood had been playing with the idea of living other lives from the very beginning, in this, his first novel My only criticism is that Grimwood deserved a better editor, there s a lot of bloated stream consciousness and extra details that don t serve to further the plot along this would have been better as a novella I did guess at the ending, but that didn t make it less I was amused reading this, because I ve read Replay twice, a book I consider among my very ...

    This is Ken Grimwood s first novel I understand why it didn t reach the success of his most famous book Replay , however being a true Grimwood fan it was a must read My sister found this copy for me and now I am on the hunt for the remaining four books, including the one he wrote under the name of Alan Cochran And so continues my search of second hand book st...

    The story shows its age, but it isn t terribly outdated for the time it was published 1976 I liked the story, it kept me reading view spoiler I knew it wasn t going to end well, even though a part of me had hoped it would It easily symbolizes the car crash that most ...

    The story develops slowly, but is riveting, intriguing and even a little bit horrifying all the way through Another gem from Ken Grimwood, which dates well now to track down an elusive copy of Elise.

  9. Nate says:

    Great concept Not very well written It started off slowly, but when it started to build, it was great There were some really amazing sections Not nearly as good as Replay though However, this was Grimwood s first book, so I m inclined to cut him some slack Well worth reading.
