More About the Author

Hi! I'm Geoff, and you've either stumbled onto this page by accident, or maybe you're into this kind of stuff.

I've been a voracious reader of horror, fantasy, and science fiction my entire life, but I didn't take the plunge into writing my own stories until recently. I've done a lot of stuff and seen a lot of things along the way. I've worked in hotels, managed grocery stores, dabbled in carpentry miserably, created a series of twisted comic books, and contributed political cartoons to a handful of newspapers. Maybe I needed to live life some to get where I am now - happily writing books to scare people.

I will be completely honest... I almost stopped reading half way through the first chapter. Geoff North's literary style may be described as "stoccado" with rapid, thrusting simple sentences occasionally fleshed out with more complex paragraphs, and combined with what is initially a crude, unsympathetic character and seemingly gratuitous use of expletives, I was nearly dissuaded to even continue. The subject, however, continued to pull me; reliving childhood with memories intact is a very human source of fascination and daydreams.

There were a few lurching momentum moments: supernatural mystery to almost Tom Sawyer-esque boy adventure to haunted house horror montage to supernatural mystery again, all interspersed with brief philosophical ruminations on the nature of time. North shone at his best during the "boys' adventure" segments, drawing the 70s environs and youthful interactions with clarity and deep connection. The final climax of Hugh going forward to meet his penultimate destiny was also especially poingant.

When I finished, I had a pleasant lingering savor of both the ending and subject. I may not have particularly enjoyed the presentation, but neither did the manner that North chose to tell his story hinder it. And in the end, if a book can get us to think, reconsider, even perhaps to dream about our lives well after the final page has passed, it is worthy enough.

The premise of this story is deceptively simple. What if you'd made a bit of a hash of it the first time around and someone gave you the chance to live most of your life again - AND you'd be able to remember all the mistakes you made?

This is what happens to the book's main character, Hugh. Now, if it happened to you, you'd have a perfect life wouldn't you? You'd be so much wiser.

Actually no, you'd probably go off and commit a whole set of new mistakes and that is precisely what Hugh does - sometimes to devastating effect.

I loved this book. I really cared what happened next and Hugh was flawed but likeable as the main character so that resonated well too. I don't know Geoff's work but I'll be looking out for it in the future. This is the kind of book I will almost certainly read again - and I don't do that very often these days!

The idea of going back and reliving your life is intriguing. The changes you could make in your life don't always turn out the way you expect. I really enjoyed this book. It's different and seeing the hero struggle to get everything right was engrossing.

You know when you reach the end of a long book, a really good long book, and you sit back and sigh contentedly?

That's where I am right now. I just finished Live It Again five minutes ago, and I've spent those minutes remembering my favourite moments from the story. I'm not going to spoil it for you. There's a good enough description further up this page that tells you all you need to know about the story structure. But the most important thing is, Geoff North has told this story superbly. He grabs you and holds on all the way through, and leaves you with a warm glow at the end.

This is an excellent book!

This was really interesting and thought provoking...what would YOU do if you could go back and live your live over again, knowing what you do now? It held my interest all the way through; the ending was sort of dumb, but it really doesn't matter--the journey is what is important, right? LOVED IT.

I am guilty of buying the free books, but I read what used to be the back cover before I waste space on my Kindle. This book was well written! On top of being well written, it is one of the few books that even weeks after finishing the book, it is still fueling my imagination. I wish I could Live it Again! I wasn't thrilled with the ending, but it may just be that I'm a bit selfish and wanted the author to write a much longer book.

Reading Geoff North's novel, Live It Again, was terribly frustrating. Frustrating because, once I'd read the first page, I wanted to read the rest in one sitting, but it came out at a particularly busy time and I was forced to break off frequently. Let me say now, if you can set aside a day to do nothing else - read Live It Again that day!
North is a talented storyteller with a style that flows gracefully. Such a refreshing change from some of the literary equivalents of broken glass that North America has dished up recently. And he knows when to stop; no overwritten roller coaster sentences here to trip you up. No language that requires the latest edition of The Dictionary of Obscure Street Slang to understand the meaning.
Without giving the game away, the story is about a fed up under achiever who meets a sticky end but is given the chance to live his life again. The return to the 1970s is so well executed that I was actually living it again and I suspect that North was too. This is too real to be entirely fictional. There were moments when my schmalz radar started to ping, but North pulls back just in time to prevent the romance taking over.
We have seen the arrival of an intelligent new writer and I look forward to his next offering. But for now, I'm going to live it again and read it once more in one sitting.
