    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....

    What did you like best about Time and Again? What did you like least?

    The plot was enjoyable & the twist at the story's end was a surprise. The description of the late 1800's is nicely done.
    I thought the protagonists first sensations in the 1800's was over described & dragged a bit. I almost stopped listening at that point, but was glad I stayed with it as it got better. I'm pleased to have listened to it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jack Finney? Why or why not?

    Depends on the story. I'm a diehard time travel fan & that's what attracted me to Time and Again.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I actually liked that the reader took his time telling the story. Well paced


    Was Time and Again worth the listening time?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Wonder if the abridged version is better? The unabridged is what I had & it did have that over described first trip into the 1800's NYC
