Time and Again
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Now with masterfully restored original artwork, lovers of time travel, romance, and adventure can rediscover Time and Again, the beloved classic hailed as “THE great time-travel story” by Stephen King, author of 11/22/63, and praised as a “pure New York fun” by Alice Hoffman, author of The Rules of Magic.
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.
Called “the great time-travel story” by Stephen King, 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 newly digitized art, you will fall in love with this refreshed classic all over again.
A wonderful and well-rendered time-travel novel that kept my interest to the last page!
A classic time travel story
I enjoyed many parts of this story. Other parts seemed too much or too little. I feel like Finney spends too much time on mundane details: "the room was green with teal curtains and a portrait of a man with large sideburns on the wall" and I feel not really enough time on things I wish he would spend more time on, like the theory of time travel he uses, or the way he actually is able to go between times. I get twenty five pages about the bar he ate lunch in but I only get two pages about the transition between worlds? Hmm...
But still, a fun read, with some interesting world views and definitely worth reading. I also very much enjoyed all the moderate to professional NYC locale discussion, very cool to learn about all these old buildings.
I just did not enjoy being told every detail of the surroundings page after page waiting for something to happen.I just gave up on the book.
