    Transported from the mid-twentieth century to New York City in the year 1882, Si Morley walks the fashionable "Ladies' Mile" of Broadway, is enchanted by the jingling sleigh bells in Central Park, and solves a 20th-century mystery by discovering its 19th-century roots. Falling in love with a beautiful young woman, he ultimately finds himself forced to choose between his lives in the present and the past. A story that will remain in the listener's memory, Time and Again is a remarkable blending of the troubled present and a nostalgic past....

    Story
    Would you try another book from Jack Finney and/or Paul Hecht?

    Absolutely not.


    What was most disappointing about Jack Finney’s story?

    There is no real plot. The main character doesn't have to do anything extraordinary to time travel; he just uses hypnosis. Then, when he is in the past, he pretty much just walks around and looks at things. I kept waiting for something -- anything -- to happen. I finally gave up at the halfway point.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Hecht?

    Sure. He didn't bring any personality to the reading, but he didn't do anything wrong, either. I'd give him another try.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I love most of Stephen King's books, so I jumped on his recommendation of this book, thinking that such a talented writer would only recommend something stellar. I cannot understand what kept King's interest at all.


    Any additional comments?

    The only reason I shopped for this book is because Stephen King recommended it, and I'm sure hundreds of his other fans would say the same. King had to know what a huge influence he would have on Finney's sales. Shame on him for wasting our money and our time.
