Summary

Ruben Prien is still at work with the Project, still dreaming of altering man's fate by going back in time to adjust events. Ruben's purpose in summoning Simon Morley back from that earlier world is to prevent World War I. It is ironic, therefore, that the man assigned to carry to America the papers that might help avert the Great Catastrophe travels to his meeting onboard the Titanic. And it is Si's task to attempt to ensure his safe passage.

Feels like a novelette expanded to a novel

The author pours on a lot of description, so much so that the story at times feels lik it's not moving anywhere. Self hypnotice for moving in time also stretches the belief rather much. If you like a story describing the 1910s you probably will like this though.

Very enjoyable

A very enjoyable book. Not quite as good as the original, but a worthy followup.
Jeff Harding is probably my go to narrator. I've got so used to his performances through Jack Reacher that I know he'll deliver a great paced and acted audio book.

I do wonder if Si goes anywhere else.... If I had the gift I'd be tempted to at least try some more times.

Not nearly as good as Time and Time again

This book picks up where Time and Time again left off. I loved Time and Again 5 out of 5. This book though, fails to deliver.

There are just too many long ponderous passages of pointless detail that add nothing to the story. I felt the story frequently seemed to lose its way and lack focus, which was a great shame.

The performance was great as before let down by a sluggish story.

Hard to care about the characters

Any additional comments?

I love time travel books but struggled with this because I did not care about the characters.
