    Story
    "Drat You, Abridged Versions!"

    Abridgment here is a travesty.This is a wonderful book, and Campbell Scott is a great narrator. But you need it all! Fortunately, Audible has added an unabridged version of this classic. Go for that one, definitely, even tho the narrator is not as good!
    Many people think "Time and Again" ranks with the best of 20th century mysteries. It presents time travel in a totally believable way, and 19th century New York City comes wonderfully alive. The characters and the suspense are well portrayed. I recommend this wholeheartedly. Just be sure to get the full version.

    Story
    "Great Story. Great Audiobook"

    I chose this book based on a recommendation from the Afterword by Stephen King, in his audiobook/novel 11-22-63. He claimed it was the definitive book on time travel and that was what inspired him.

    I bought the abridged version, but wished I got the unabridged version. It is a very entertaining story. The narration is excellent, and as far fetched as time travel may sound, he makes this believable. The characters are likable and there is a good storyline. I have recommended this to several of my friends who have liked it as much as I did.

    "One Star for Seriously Abridged...ruined it for me"

    The Abridged version is soooooo short that it ruins the entire story, I bought the abridged by mistake, I NEVER buy abridged versions of anything, so I'm rather mad at myself this time. Fortunately I own the book so I'll just read it. I loved the narrators voice, beautiful voice, I could listen to him for....well, ever! DO NOT BUY THE ABRIDGED VERSION of this very nice story!
