Like many sequels this is not as good as the original 'Time after time' Having said that it had that same winsome quality that swept you along in a nostalgic wave which was very enjoyable.
"Wished for more"
I was distracted at times by the lower quality and I sure would have enjoyed having the entire book rather than an abridged version. I generally don't even look at abridged books but wanted to hear what else was going to happen to Simon and all.
Yes, Time and Again was a much better read.
"Not as good as"
Just as the ability and range of the actor can bring a play to life, so is the vocal range and intonations of the narrator of an audible book. "From Time to Time" was not as direct and compelling as "Time and Again". Perhaps I was already captivated by "Time and Again" and felt that "From Time to Time" fell short. Neverteless, Campbell Scott's narration elevated the listening experience. No other way to describe it. The comdination of the book and narration was quite satisfactory.
"The sequels are never as good"
Sequel to Time and Again, which was a great book. THis one just didn't have the pizzazz of it's predecessor. In fact, I missed a large section of the book and didn't skip a beat.....
"Not the best"
Mistakenly purchased Abridged Version rather than the Unabridged, but I still didn't buy into the time-travel premise or the plot line.
