    LIfe in Rewind

    "Time equals Progression, Progression equals death" is the silent mantra that runs 24/7 in Ed's head and therefore runs his life. Ed is trapped in a self imposed prison; a prison in which only Ed can conjure the key for release. Author, Terry Weible Murphy's book "Life in Rewind", introduces us to Ed and his mental prison. The reader immediately has compassion for Ed and therefore this book reads as a fast paced mystery, because we want to know how Ed uncovers the key that sets him free. I recommend this book to readers of mystery, suspense, life and love. Tears are shed and memories are made through all of Ed's prison breaks and recapture's. This is a story of a man convicted to life in prison who truly is not guilty of the crime, yet DNA testing is not the key to his release.

    If you think you have OCD, you ain't seen nothing yet!

    This guy had it bad! It's unbelievable that this kid thought he could keep people from dying by doing everything backwards. A friend got me the paperback version that comes out before the real book, and it's one hell of a story. I know a lot about OCD, but it seems like Ed Zine might have had more than just OCD. He gets trapped in the basement, and won't let anybody come inside. If anything gets touched or moved he totally freaks out because he thinks it makes time move forward and people like his dad will die.

    The whole thing started when he was little and he saw his mother die and nobody knew it. As he grows up he needs to keep everybody else from dying so in his mind he has to stay young and the only way he can do that is to start doing everything backwards and make time stand still. There's a lot of grit too. While he's stuck in the basement a freind of his who is a drug runner starts having drugs sent to his house because he knows Ed can't go upstairs to pick up the package. Cops put the house under surveilance and they think it's Ed and his brother who's a rookie cop dealing drugs. It's pretty crazy.

    But the cool part is when this Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Jenike whose a war hero who makes house calls comes and tries to help him. But nothing does any good, and even when he gives up as a doctor he doesn't give up as a friend. It's the honor between them that really makes a difference. It's pretty inspirational how their friendship helps turn this kids life around and his OCD gets better.

    As someone who has family with OCD I would give it an A+.

    review on life in rewind

    I found this book to be fascinating, a trip into the real life of a very brave and inspirational person with OCD. It also was very easy to read and even though it is non-fiction it read like a great novel.
