Quick Review: THAT was not what I expected at all. Wow, what a ride!

Really a 5.5/10. Well done and everything, but strikingly unoriginal. This type of story is part of modern culture, sufficiently similar to Slaughterhouse Five (1969), Groundhog's Day, and The Time-Traveler's Wife. This version is probably the weakest out of all of them, despite being the most different. For instance, the romance in The Time-Traveler's Wife was extremely potent, markedly distinguished from the matter-of-fact relationship in "Reply".

Short e, not long… (mais)

Considered the original long form Groundhog day story before the Bill Murray/Harold Ramis movie. (there was a short story which predated it as well) A quick read, similar to All you Need is Kill. Enjoyable, though with a bit too much sexual content for my liking. But a nice focus on building authentic relationships. Interesting view. Some threads and ideas which are not developed. Apparently Grimwood was planning a sequel (an epilogue seems to give an opening for one), before he passed away. Wonder if somehow it would be published. I would probably read it.… (mais)
