Two Frogs

I finished both this book and the one reviewed below months ago, but am just now getting around to reviewing them. This is a sci-fi story (kind of) about a man who has a heart attack, believes he has died, then awakens in his college dorm room, in his teens. After the initial struggle to understand who and where he is, the protagonist gets to relive his life. He does, dying again of a heart attack at the same exact moment he died the first time. This happens over and over, with him choosing a new path for his life each time. The different outcomes are predictable, but the telling of these different paths is remarkably engaging. I don’t want to give too much of the story away in my review; suffice to say this is one I think I will enjoy re-reading a few years down the road.
