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.

oswald no

What did you love best about Time and Again?

the stories whitin the main story

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

there were some heart touching moments for me.

Any additional comments?

the Oswald jfk stuff wasn't that interesting. it seemed obvious from the beginning that it would change to much in the future time line, and why it seemed so important in the first place was puzziling, because you have know way of knowing if it would lead to better thing or worse but you did know the change could be dramtic and unpreditable. so iwouldnt choose to take that chance.

Glad I persisted

I had a hard time getting started on this book. It seemed to meander in the beginning. But, like many great books, I couldn't make myself turn it off after it got hold of me! I am glad I listened. I didn't want it to end!

Old New York comes to life.

This book was extremely popular in New York back in 1969-ish. I was living there, and read it at least three times. I have loaned it to a number of friends, and at some point it didn't come back. So when I saw that it was available on Audible, I jumped at it. I thought the reader was excellent, and I enjoyed, all over again, experiencing "old New York" through this amazing story!

Give the narrator some water, please

What made the experience of listening to Time and Again the most enjoyable?

The story is wonderful. I read it because Stephen King said it was the best time travel book he had ever read. While the narrator's tone is even and calm, he does a great job of portraying action and tension.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Time and Again?

The narrator seems to swallow quite audibly. It is amazing how often the sound of the swallow add to the story. After a while, it becomes quite comical

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Cannot sit that long.

Excellent!

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