    The spoiler hide technique is really cool. Thanks!

    I just finished listening to the audio book.

    It was an easy listen, which is exactly what I needed for a long car ride.

    I kept finding myself comparing it to "Groundhog's Day," "Life's Golden Ticket," and "A Christmas Carol." I enjoy books about alternate realities and this one was done pretty well.

    Where I found myself frustrated is that I felt like she gave up on a couple of her realities too quickly. That's kind of picky, since the whole point of the book was that her root life was the ultimate choice.

    My favorite quote was, "Life doesn't need to be understood. It just needs to be lived."

    I thought the same thing about her giving up on some of the lives too early, but then after pondering it a few days later I kind of felt it made it more realistic, because she was in a pretty fragile place when she started hopping lives. But... I sure wanted her to stay in some of them a little longer and give them a better chance!
