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!

A fun adventure encompassing time travel, mystery and romance and featuring fascinating details of historical New York City. This was a favorite family novel and has been recommended to all of our friends.

"Go back to a wonderful world and have a wonderful time doing it."
by San Francisco Examiner,
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.
"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?
