This was one of those books that was so good I could barely stand it. I hated reading each page because it meant I was that much closer to the end of the book. 10 out of 10.

This may not be the most interesting book I ever read but the story wrapped up very nicely! :-D

This book is a quadruple threat. It's a time travel story, a romance, an historical novel of old New York, and a mystery all in one. In fact, the time travel aspects of the book take on new significance since the reader can enjoy the New York of 1882, which is portrayed with such detail, as well as the New York of 1970, a time without cell phones, computers, social media, etc. A wonderful read, highly recommended!

The book was a little slow to grab my attention, but once it was caught I found the narrative and ideas to be pretty magical. There were some mighty convenient coincidences, and a bit too much of romanticizing the past (especially at the end), but I took it as it was offered, as an entertainment. If some of the strokes felt a bit broad-handed, I didn't mind, because there was some clever plotting too. Very diverting.

After reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King, I read that Jack Finney was THE author for time travel. I therefore read Time and Again only to be disappointed. Finney loves long descriptions and the first 150 pages of Time and Again are descriptions of of New York City in 1882. wanting to convince the reader that his research was authentic, one gets lost and confused in endless descriptions. One forgets that there is actually a story in those lines. Considered a classic, I would say skip it!

Very wordy and very slow moving. Found it boring. 11/22/63 by Stephen King is a far superior book.

This brings the reader back to another time that is so vivid you can smell, hear, taste it. One of my favourite books.

But these were thoughts that weren't of my time anymore. Now they were of a far-off future I no longer belonged in.

I'm not going to say everything there is to say about Kate and me. I've read such accounts, completely explicit and detailed, nothing omitted; and when they've been good, I've liked them. Sometimes I've even learned something about people from them, almost like an actual experience, and that's very good indeed. But my nature is different, that's all. I don't like to and I could not reveal everything about myself. I like to read them, but I wouldn't like to write one. I'm not holding back anything all that unique, in any case. So if now and then you think you can read between the lines, you may be right; or may not.
