Time and Again: Travel back to a gentler world
This is one of those books that I have to keep replacing. The covers come off after so many times in the bath, the paper gets brown and crinkly from reading in tropical vacation sun, so many copies given away - you know, it's one of those books. My now daughter routinely asks every Christmas: "Do you need a new copy?".
I would have to say this book is on my top ten list, and I won't bore you with how many times I've read it, but I will tell you it's a great read. It's the book that when it's over you're actually sad it's ended. The first time I read it, I read it in one sitting.
The story is brilliantly told, and anybody like me who is a fan of science fiction and time travel books and movies, will love this. It sounds so believable, and is made even more so with a collection of photos and woodcuts thrown in for good measure, you can almost make yourself believe it as truth. There is one photo in particular (the photos are real by the way!), that is so astounding, but I don't want to give it away, Suffice to say it is a take-your-breathaway moment.
The characters are believable, the suspense is palpable and if you love New York City, then this is a 100% must read. Finny is an expert at weaving his tale back and forth through time, so much so, that along with Si, the lead character, you will not want to return to the mundane present.
Omg I didn't know this existed! A SEQUEL!!!
This is great time travel movie!
And another ultimate time travel book on my list!
And of course the professional time traveller to get you in the mood!
