About The Book

WHAT IF YOUR LIFE HAD AN ‘UNDO’ BUTTON?
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 Thoughts

What a curious read, let’s be honest Arlo Knott is nothing but simple or easy, he is SPECIAL and his life will be exceptional, but it will start with a tragic death. Ready to discover “The Undoing of Arlo Knott”?
This had been a different read from the books I am used to, this was like the Arlo Knott memoir, when his life changes completely and he starts having a curious power, he can undone the previous actions he has done. Yes, it sounds a little bit strange, but is a really useful “power” that I would love to have! There are endless possibilities with his “power” the only question it would be what would you do with it, help the others or yourself? Arlo will have a little bit of both, it will take a while to decide what he really wants to do with his life, and not all the previous choices will be nice.
This had been a very interesting read, we will see how Arlo grows and his priorities change when he grows as a person. Because this is a trip that you take with Arlo; you are his companion, his shadow and confident. He will have his ups and downs, and his life will not be full of people but just a few special persons that will mark him forever; making this story original and absorbing. I’ll have to admit that I didn’t like much Arlo as a person, but as the story progresses you start having a special connection with him and his life.
There’s a surprise in the end, I was half expecting it, but it had shocked me anyway!
Ready to discover Arlo Knott, he will have a few tricks on her pocket to surprise you…
