"Time and Again" won't please readers looking for quick action and thrills. It is a leisurely book that takes its time to build up the central situation: the U.S.Read more ›
This is Finney's finest, a gentle novel which nevertheless prompts us to give serious thought to the morality of the decisions we make. Morley's decision to treat the people in the past as more than images long dead in the present leads inevitably to his decision to question the rightness of the project he is engaged in, and to act on that decision.
A fine, fine book that I wish Finney hadn't spoiled with a sequel. When will they make that movie out of it that they keep talking about?
All told, this novel is one to read and re-read. There is one photo in it that I like so much; as a result a copy of it now sits on my desk at work. I won't give away which photo it is, but it shows a New York landmark in a location vastly different from where we are used to seeing it.
Please note that shortly before his death, Jack Finney re-visited this idea and the main character, writing a sequal called From Time to Time. This book is also entertaining to read, though set in the New York City of somewhat later in time, specifically 1912.
I wish Mr. Finney were still alive, so that I could congratulate him in person for having given us such an enjoyable book as Time and Again.
