Publisher's Summary

One of the most beloved tales of our time!

Science fiction, mystery, a passionate love story, and a detailed history of Old New York blend together in Jack Finney's spellbinding story of a young man enlisted in a secret Government experiment.

Transported from the mid-20th 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, made vivid and extraordinarily moving by the images of a time that was... and perhaps still is.

©1970 Jack Finney (P)2011 Simon & Schuster

    "Excellent!"

    I didn't want the story to end. An epilogue letting us know if everything took place as planned would have been great.

    "Fantastic story"

    I downloaded this story on Stephen King's recommendation, and I enjoyed it more than any SK novel I've ever read.

    Story
    "Enthralling history stumbles on late liberal whine"

    Really a masterpiece, a time travel piece that has to be considered with the time it was written. "Buy the premise, buy the bit." This story doesn't struggle with time travel paradoxes but with the human consequences of shifting between milieu, between the very different cultures of different times.
    Near the end the author looses track of how mankind's struggles to fix our problems often succeed in making this a better world. He wrings his hands over problems current to his own time, while I, down history's timeline, see those problems largely met. This mistake should not be made by a serious student of history. Think it was Heinlein who said that those who harken back to simpler, better times, have no appreciation for how hard it was to find enough food.
    In the end of course our time traveler is motivated by the only constant.
    Classic. Well done.

    Story
    "Not Quite SciFi"

    This was originally billed as a Scifi novel, however, it is not. Having said that, it is a very good novel. It is in some ways a truly great novel. If you haven't read it, I must suggest this one. It is a passionate tale that one cannot help but be drawn into and it will catch your imagination.

    "Meh"
    Any additional comments?

    I expected a lot from this book, based on the other comments. The main character time travels by thinking about it, which is kind of a cop out. Plus, it really didn't get interesting until the last 4 chapters.

    "A fine story, a fine performance"

    A fun and convincing story, dated only by an annoying habit of the time; women are referred to as girls. One sentence nearly ruined the book for me; it expressed an irrational fear of young black men. I think it was a product of the times though, however irrational.

    "Perfect Ending"

    A little slow getting into, but most good books are. However, it is well worth the read and has a great ending.
