Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Sleep. And when you awake everything you know of the twentieth century will be gone from your mind. Tonight is January 21, 1882. There are no such things as automobiles, no planes, computers, television. 'Nuclear' appears in no dictionary. You have never heard the name Richard Nixon."

Did illustrator Si Morley really step out of his twentieth-century apartment one night — right into the winter of 1882? The U.S. Government believed it, especially when Si returned with a portfolio of brand-new sketches and tintype photos of a world that no longer existed — or did it?

Review:

"Go back to a wonderful world and have a wonderful time doing it." New York Times

Review:

"Mind-boggling, imaginaiton-stretching...entertainment." San Francisco Examiner

Synopsis:

Since it was first published in 1970, Time and Again has become a truly timeless cult classic with a vast and loyal following. This 25th anniversary edition, filled with its original unique period illustrations, is being published to coincide with its long-awaited sequel, From Time to Time.

Synopsis:

Rediscover the beloved classic, Time and Again—hailed as “THE great time-travel story” by Stephen King, now with masterfully restored original artwork and an all-new foreword by Audrey Niffenegger, New York Times bestselling author of The Time Traveler’s Wife.

When advertising artist Si Morley is recruited to join a covert government operation exploring the possibility of time travel, he jumps at the chance to leave his twentieth-century existence and step into New York City in January 1882. Aside from his thirst for experience, he has good reason to return to the past—his friend Kate has a curious, half-burned letter dated from that year, and he wants to trace the mystery.

But when Si begins to fall in love with a woman he meets in the past, he will be forced to choose between two worlds—forever.

Praised as “pure New York fun” by Alice Hoffman, Time and Again is admired for its rich, painstakingly researched descriptions of life in New York City more than a century ago, and for the swift adventure at its core. With digitally remastered art, fall in love with this refreshed classic all over again.

kikikiki, October 25, 2006 (view all comments by kikikiki)
this book was ok but kind of boring, there is way to much detail about every little thing that the main character sees and does, and not enough action. Towards the end of the book (in the last 80 pages out of 398) it gets better and more interesting, but i would probably not recomend this book to someone who is not VERY intereseted in history.

I like this so much that I have literally read this time and again, and have recommended this to friends and family. My reading group read this at my suggestion, and everyone enjoyed it. The historic photographs and illustrations really add to the believability and enjoyment of the story. Highly recommended!
