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.
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!
Once he started seeing ghosts, it got a little off kilter, but that story was more interesting. The ending was weird and didn't make any sense. The last several chapters were also riddled with spelling errors and omitted words, as if the author spent a lot of time on the beginning, but once he sped up the movement of time, had to rush to finish.
A book that makes the reader sit up and think, to realise that all is not as it seems and neither are people. I will definitely be on the look-out for more Geoff North books.
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!
