Publisher's Summary

Science fiction, mystery, a passionate love story, and a detailed history of old New York blend together in this spellbinding story of a young man embroiled in a secret government experiment. Transported from the mid-1900s to the New York of 1882, Si Morley solves a mystery of the 20th century by discovering its 19th-century roots, and falls desperately in love with a beautiful young woman in the process. He ultimately finds himself forced to choose between his lives in the present and the past. This is the classic novel that has captivated an entire generation since its original publication in 1970.

    "Best book EVER"

    I lived in NYC for 15 years. A friend bought this book for me and said that everyone was reading it. It changed how I looked at the city. I would walk in Central Park and I could see it in the 1800. The story is gripping and sadly, in the Audio version you miss the beautiful old photos.( I do have the paperback as well because of that) I wish I could travel back in time as well. I think that NYC would be my destination too. I have lent this book to many people. I have also bought it as a gift to some. This one will be in my library forever. And the fact that it takes place in the Dakota building is of course a plus. I think all in all I have read this book 4 times and listened to it once. This will be the second time.

    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.

    "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!
