Finally on audio -- 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-twentieth 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.

    " It had all of the elements that should have made it awesome (history, time travel, hypnotism), but instead I found it dull and flat. Very disappointing, but since it was for book club I powered through and finished it anyway. "

    " I have NO idea when I read this book, but it was certainly several years ago, and I was just reminded of it as I was browsing through NPR's "My Guilty Pleasure" section online. I don't remember too many details, except that the character thinks food tastes "real" when he time-travels back to 1882... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tyera | 6/29/2011

    " Interesting ideas about how to move back and forth through time, and how that power might be used. But far too much romanticized description of the past. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudia | 5/19/2011

    " I love this book so much. Time travel, New York and a forbidden love story. Perfect combination! "

    " This book is just fun. And if you are a New Yorker, it's ridiculous fun. A man travels back in time to live in 1886 New York City. The time travel is done in a rather believable way and his experiences back in time are completely fun, interesting and compelling. Can't recommend it enough. "

    " One of my favorite books. It's a time travel love story that is so believable it might actually be real. Or maybe not. Regardless, it's a wonderful book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 3/16/2011
