It did turn out to be a very good book. A little sci-fi but not too much. Edward is terminally ill, and being a scientist working with brain injuries he has a way to be re-born, as an infant who will have his memories. His assistant Samantha is in love with him and agrees to carry the baby that will be him. Everything works perfect - at least in theory. Unfortunately there are complications, And coming back as an infant, he can't understand what has happened. As his knowledge grows, so do the problems. He continues to try to find an elusive happiness.
Kind of a dark book, but full of twists.
I also want to warn potential readers that the almost the entire story is written as *narrative*. Dialogue was mostly--though not completely--absent. The narrator simply sums up most conversations. It was strange and puzzling and...boring. You get to know characters through their words as well as their actions, and that wasn't possible in this book.
This book would have gotten only one star, but I though the scientific concept was interesting.

The reason this review has a peculiar title ("Good and excellent") is explained as follows.
GOOD: The book does a good, workmanlike job of telling the story set out in the Product Description. To use a cliché coined not so long ago, it "does what it says on the tin".
EXCELLENT: As explained in the Product Description, the mind of the protagonist Edward is reborn into a helpless child of a rival. What I found to be excellent was the author's narrative of how the melded personalities of Edward and the child affect the process of development from newborn to adult. This narrative is eerily credible and gripping. Ever said to yourself a much older cliché: "If I only knew then what I know now"? Well, the author has convincingly set out what might happen if this wish were satisfied for the whole journey from babyhood on. And does development on this basis have its good and bad points? The author's writing creates a lot of mind fodder for the reader to form his own answer to this question. Read it and see.
