Time and Again

A book by Jack Finney

A Modern Classic

  • Feb 20, 2002
Rating:
+3
This book is excellent! The author creates a rich world of New York during the 1880's. The scenes are vivid and the author adds photos and drawings that really give a sense of reality. I am a native New Yorker and learned a great deal about my own city such as not knowing that the arm of the Statue of Liberty was sitting for a long time in a public park.

The book flows well throughout. The only thing that prevented me from giving it 5 stars was the method the author used for the time travel. However, if we consider the book a classic and accept it for what it is, you can easily accept the method given.

I understand that there is a sequel to this book and I will be ordering it from my library.
