Publisher's Summary

Si Morley is bored with his job as a commercial artist, and his social life doesn't seem to be going anywhere. So when he's approached by an affable ex-football star and told he's just what the government is looking for to be part of a top-secret project, he doesn't hesitate. One night he steps out of his twentieth-century New York apartment into the winter of 1882 and finds a kind of Eden.

    "What a story"
    What did you like most about Time and Again?

    The descriptions of the location, they felt very real


    What other book might you compare Time and Again to, and why?

    Well it's a time travelling story, but not like any other I have read.


    What about Jeff Harding’s performance did you like?

    I have listened to many Audio Books performed by Jeff Harding and I think it fair to say he is brilliant, Characterisation, Pace, tone, what is not to like?


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The first successful jump/shift in time is exciting, it is all depicted as so simple, if it were possible you may be able to recreate.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a brilliant story, it really does bounce along at a fair pace, there is quite a lot of descriptive dialogue but it is relevant.

    "Time and again"

    This book was suggested by Steven king at the end of the book 11,22,63. Is a great story but not as good as Steven kings book. Is a good read and I would suggest this book to anyone into subtle time travel rather than a sci fi epic

    "A 'timeless' timetravel classic"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm not sure where that 17 hours went and was surprised when I realised that the end of the story was upon me! <br/><br/>Although excited to read it (listen) I had gone into the book with a little scepticism, wondering if being written in 1970 would detract from how it would resonate with me but I needn't have worried, it really makes no difference. I can only think that written today there would have been more reference to IT/technology and style/approach to media/publishing, given Si's (the main protagonist) job. I actually quite enjoyed that aspect, it added another dimension of interest, listening to normal life at that time also.<br/><br/>The bulk of the story is told in the 1880's, where Si travels back to, on a government mission, via a hypnotic form of time travel - as in he enters a hypnotic state in order to 'will' himself there, as he is blessed with an amazing ability, somehow! The vivid descriptions both of how this is built up and then he travels, to the actual experience in the 1880s are just brilliant. The imagery you want from a story, that escapism, it's all there to immerse yourself into. <br/><br/>I have a couple of criticisms - New York is described in intricate detail and this is wonderful until, for me, it began to overtake the story and become a little tedious. If you live in or come from New York then perhaps this lengthy detail is fascinating but I found myself wishing the story would get a move on. I also felt the characters could have been fleshed out more, especially Si and a woman he meets in his time jump, Julia. There was some depth lacking there for me and whilst the place descriptions were atmospheric (and lengthy) the characters often felt quite two-dimensional.<br/><br/>My criticisms aside, I can fully understand why this book was recommended by Stephen King in his 11.22.63 epic - whilst not equalling the depth of story-telling of that novel for me, Time And Again is absolutely up there amongst my favourites of this genre - I don't often read/listen to books twice however I most certainly will revisit this one again.

    Story
    "Somewhat long drawn out"

    The author uses a lot of time describing the 1880s to make them alive. At times it feels too drawn out so that the story halts to a standstil. If you like seeing the time like a picture in your mind, you probably will like it. If you want action, this is probably not the story for you.

    "Not as Good as Promissed"

    Went on recommendation from Stephen King. OK but not the best time travel story in my opinion Stephen!
