#Blog Blitz - The Undoing of Arlo Knott -Heather Child

August 7, 2019

 4/5 stars 

 

The Plot 

 

Arlo Knott develops the mysterious ability to reverse his last action. It makes him able to experience anything, to charm any woman and impress any friend.

His is a life free of mistakes, a life without regret. But second chances aren't all they're cracked up to be. As wonderful as his new life is, a mistake in Arlo's traumatic childhood still haunts him and the temptation to undo, undo and keep undoing could be too much to resist.

 

My Review 

 

Thank you to Tracy from Complusive Readers for the invitation to the blog blitz and to Orbit for the copy of the book in return for a fair and honest review.

 

The story is told by Arlo in the first person and it has a very dramatic and sad start that changes Arlo's life and perspective.

In his teens he discovers that he has a unique ability to undo his last action and he goes about using it in his life to cope with some of challenges he is facing. 

 

I enjoyed how the book was written although it did take me a little while to get going but once I did I was hooked.  The book made me think about having an undo button and if I would like or in fact use it.

 

I liked Arlo, although at times he is very selfish and makes some bad decisions but his story is quirky, unique and interesting an unlike anything I have read previously. If you want a chance to read something completely different this is the book for you.
