Publisher's Summary

The long-awaited sequel to Time and Again . Si Morley is back and the world may never be the same.

When Time and Again was published in 1970, it immediately developed a loyal following that has grown with each passing year. With this book, Jack Finney returned to the same magical territory and finds Ruben Prien still at work with the Project, still dreaming of altering man's fate by going back in time to adjust events... to interfere, some might say, with destiny.

Once again, the conduit to that bygone era is Simon Morley, the man who actually proved himself capable of traveling back and forth in time. This time, he does so with a grand purpose: an attempt to prevent World War I.

From Time to Time is a tale that is both thrilling and nostalgic, magical and terrifying, charming and full of suspense.

Listen to the first book, Time and Again.

    "The Fate of a Sequel"

    Ever have the feeling when reading a book that you must have skipped a page (or two, or three… or ten) because the story suddenly makes NO SENSE?

    This is the sensation I had throughout most of this book. I can’t tell you with any certainty if it’s the story jumping around or if it’s my attention fading in and out but I was clearly not as riveted to this book as I was to Book 1! ("Time and Again" - Excellent!!) I think I missed a few crucial threads early on.

    It’s the fate of a sequel I guess; the better the predecessor, the higher the standards for the following instalments.

    "Unbearably Disappointing Sequel To A Masterpiece"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book was one of the biggest disappointments of my reading life! It is a slapdash sequel to a brilliantly plotted novel.


    What was most disappointing about Jack Finney’s story?

    The plot lacks coherence and drive. Obviously, time travel is just an interesting concept, but in the original there was a logic and a procedure laid out for how the main character (and others) would travel through time. In this book, the rules are thrown out the window, violating the interior logic of the first book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I cannot really think of any sense that moved or intrigued me - completely unlike the charming and moving first book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Finney's reputation is well established; this book is just a miserable aberration from his usual excellence.

    Married mother of three teenagers, back to work after 15 years at home - when I read a lot. Now I am the assistant to the Mayor of Omaha and work at least 60 hours a week, and on top of what I have to do at home - no more books. This lets me listen to the classics, the latest, whatever I want. I can learn or escape. I have always love audio books, but now I NEED them.

    Story
    "It's ok, but not earth-moving..."

    I really liked the first book, although found the premise of how they shift from one time to another to be too simplistic. This time he barely has to try, and he is all over the place. But aside from that, the first story ended so well, and they had to undo that to tell this story, and maybe that is where it fell down.
    I'm not returning it, but don't need to hear it again. Hope this helps you decide.

    "Steven King Endorsed"

    Steven King endorsed this book in the afterwards of his new novel 11-22-63. I'd already listened to this but thought King's novel was a tad bit better.
