Enthusiastically seconded. I've read it several times, and it's a great book!

Ken Grimwood's Replay could be described as science fiction (it's about a man reliving his life over and over again, a bit differently each time), but since

the mechanism for his repeated return to his youth is never explained,

it really is more of a fantasy. And a very good, compulsively readable one, too. The same could be said of Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife, for that matter.
