Book Description

Synopsis

Do you truly believe that you control your fate, that you can be whoever you want to be, that anyone can be the President? "Apply yourself and you can do whatever you like." That's a bunch of half assed horseshit, and I am living proof.

Because of that I drink. Some would call me a drunk. I have to ask, if you were forced to see the future and knew there was nothing you could do to change it, wouldn’t you drink, too?

I prefer Guinness. It goes down smooth and takes the edge off. It dulls my senses while eliminating the visions. Most of all it makes me forget. Forget what, you ask?

It makes me forget the terrible things I’ve seen, that fate makes me its bitch, over and over again, that I am powerless against tide of time and the universe. Most of all it makes me forget the pain. That is until I saw her.

2.0 out of 5 stars IGNORE THE STARS—READ THE REVIEW March 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Sometimes I hate giving stars out. Why? Because it doesn’t necessarily convey the essence to the audience that is most interested in the book. Here, people that love Chuck Wendig will probably love Chris Manteria’s RERUN. For those keeping score, I gave Wendig a three-star rating for this latest book THE CORMORANT. Fans of Wendig and his titillating character Miriam Black will love the latest installment in the series. At the end of the day, I have to rate books based upon my own enjoyment and the onus is upon me to explain it in the review. That’s why I say, “ignore the stars—read the review.”

Now, for Manteria’s RERUN. The protagonist is a guy named Charles (Charlie) Williams that has strange visions. He eventually uses these visions to save a girl named Jennifer from death—more than once. Charlie’s visions and his relationship with Jennifer are beyond coincidental. The story intertwines between various other visions, other characters, and Jennifer’s past until it boils up into a twist-filled conclusion. The plot may start slow, but it ramps up after the initial half.

You can tell Manteria is from New York, and the writing is benefited because of it. Readers like me appreciate the description and authentic feel of the environment. You can also tell that Manteria enjoys reading popular authors like Stephen King (he even mentions one of King’s novels in the story) because the writing often complements those same styles. So if you like Wendig or King (specifically King’s earlier not-too-scary works), you’ll probably dig RERUN.

A few things dragged this book down for me. The first would be the adjective- and adverb-heavy writing. Both have their places (see Harry Potter), but RERUN uses them to stop the story’s progress. Pacing is key.

**EDIT: Original Review Below. After some thought I changed my rating from 3 stars to 4. The reason why is that the author wrote well enough to make me interested in and care what happened to Charlie and the rest of the supporting characters. The fact that I was left wanting more, had questions, and felt vested in their lives meant that this book had an impact on me. I still want a short epilogue and some details from Charlie's "lost" time though! :-)

This book kept my attention and the author did a good job of making me interested in the main characters life. There were a few typos but not so many that I did not want to finish. The writing style is easy to read and for the most part the very detailed descriptions of minute details works but it did need to be toned down in some instances. I feel this author has a best seller in him and it may even involve these characters but this novel is not it. I understand the praise from another reviewer in that the author did not follow the cliche main character hero saves the world storyline but what was missing for me was purpose. Why did Charles live the life he did? What was the purpose of giving the reader a glimpse into his misery and doom and why did we need to follow his journey? If there is not some type of satisfying ending or hope for improvement in the next life cycle then was there at least a lesson to be learned? If there had even been a short epilogue of a new start over with different outcomes then this may have received 5 stars. Please read this for yourself, you may do a better job of understanding the authors ultimate message and this is an engaging read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow...keeps your attention! March 8, 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book....not generally a fan of those that start with the end & then begin the story but it works in this book!! I got so engrossed, the writer makes you actually 'see' the scenes with his descriptive writing...it pulls you into the story and makes you feel so much a part of it...you'll find yourself looking over your shoulder, listening for the sounds and even talking to the characters...lol, no, I am NOT nuts!! It's just that kind of book...
Chris, I am so impressed with you...first the recipes, now the book...holy smokes!!! Your family has reason to be proud of you...you're a man of many talents!
Get that next one written & published....;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Rerun: Accepting Your Fate April 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you could see into the future or the past, what would you do with that information? What kind of burden would the visions impose on your life? Would you accept the fate you’ve seen or would you seek to change it? These are some of the questions raised by the premise of Rerun by Chris Manteria. The story concept is a great idea for fiction and the execution is good for an author’s first foray into novel writing. There are a few setbacks that keep it from being an excellent novel.
The novel follows Charles, a young man in New York City who experiences glimpses of events that are yet to come and sometimes events of the past. The explanation for why he has this ability is not given sufficient power, to be honest. The logic behind it doesn’t make a great deal of sense but the author sticks with it. As a character, Charles is relatable at times, due in no small part to Manteria doing a good job conveying the mental toll these visions have on him. Charles is still rather wooden at times. There were occasions that I just didn’t care about his ultimate fate but the story’s forward momentum kept my attention. The same could be said of Jennifer, the love interest of the story, who only has a few facets of personality despite having an intriguing, heart-breaking backstory.
One of the reasons for the fatigue I mentioned above is the use of superfluous detail. I think this has more to do with Manteria being a first-time novelist than anything else. There are numerous instances of unnecessary detail provided to the reader, from how dinner is eaten to the morning rituals we all go through. I’ve used this idiom before and I believe it applies here specifically. Sentences should do one of two things in a story: reveal character or move the story forward.
