Summary

Here is the sequel a generation has been waiting for! When Time and Again was published in 1970, it generated a loyal following that grows larger with each passing year. Now, Jack Finney revisits the same magical territory and finds Ruben Prien still at work on the Project, still dreaming of altering man's fate by going back in time to adjust events. Once again, Simon Morley is the conduit to that bygone era, the man who proved himself capable of traveling through time. This time, he does so with a grand purpose: an attempt to prevent World War I. The world may never be the same.

Dissapointing

No where near as enjoyable as the first book, the narrator in the first also was better. It wouod of been nice if they had kept the same narrator. There was no real plot and nothing really to keep you gripped in the book. I only pursued it becauae I enjoyed the first book so much.

So disappointed

I loved the first part of this story Time and Again so much I literally couldn’t wait for the final instalment. Like a previous review it just doesn’t even touch the sides in comparison. I can barely follow the story and why didn’t they use the same narrator? Really disappointed and I returned it:

Another Nostalgic Journey

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

What would have made From Time to Time better?

Mistakenly purchased Abridged Version rather than the Unabridged, but I still didn't buy into the time-travel premise or the plot line.
