Book Review – Rearview by Mike Dellosso

Rearview (7 Hours series)Rearview by Mike Dellosso
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rearview started with a bang. Dan Blakely is a professor who is able to have a very bad day. Through a false accusation, his life will soon unravel. The loss of his job as well as his reputation is only the beginning. I really felt for this character right from the beginning. I felt his despair, his sense of hopelessness.

Trouble leads to tragedy and soon Dan is laying in his car dying. That is when he meets the mysterious Thomas Constant who offers him three options. 1) Go back a relive seven hours of your life, 2) Continue living for another 7 hours, or 3) Die now.

Not really believing that Thomas can really do what he says, Dan makes a less than ideal choice, but he’s stuck with it now. The clock is ticking and Dan doesn’t have long to make things right. After doing what he can to resolve the problems that led to his downfall, Dan makes the quest to try and reach his family, so he can spend his last moments with those he loves.

This turns out to be a thrilling ride, with lots of twists and turns.

Rearview is a very satisfying story about living a life without regrets. It is a great ‘pilot episode’ to the 7 hours series.
