...I didn’t like the book. I’m hesitant on a grade. It doesn’t feel like an “F” book, even though my dislike for it was probably at an “F” level. I can’t help but be influenced by how many people seem to love it...

Synopsis

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 Museum of Extraordinary Things.

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.
 

About Jack Finney

See more books from this Author
Jack Finney was born on October 2, 1911 with the given name John Finney. His father died when he was three years old and he was renamed Walter Braden Finney in honor of his father. He attended Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. After moving to New York and working in the advertising industry, he began writing stories for popular magazines like Collier's, The Saturday Evening Post and McCall's. His first novel, "Five Against the House" (1954), told the story of five college students who plot to rob a casino in Reno. A year later he published "The Body Snatchers" which was later reissued as "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." Many critics interpreted the insidious infiltration by aliens as a cold-war allegory that dramatized America's fear of a takeover by Communists. Mr. Finney maintained that the novel was nothing more than popular entertainment. The 1956 film "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" was remade twice. With "Time and Again," Mr. Finney won the kind of critical praise and attention not normally accorded to genre fiction. Finney died November 16, 1995 of pneumonia and emphysema at Marin General Hospital in Greenbrae, Calif. He was 84.
