I thoroughly enjoyed this and read/listened (with whisper sync) in just a few days. The general concept is very inventive and certainly gets you pondering the very question of time. I would agree with other reviewers that a very strong start to the book does not quite manage to make it through to the end - which is somewhat weak and unsatisfactory by comparison. However, again like another reviewer, I find it hard to see what else could have been done. It is read very well in general, but the 'voice' used for Hugh Stanton was so at odds with my imagined sound of him that this did prevent me from giving the full 5 stars. However please don't be put off by the few misgivings I have about this book, it may not be 100% perfect but this is well worth a listen.

What happens when a bunch of academic historians actually get the opportunity to change history? Well, I think you can imagine that the results are not what they expected - and not necessarily of benefit to the present and future.
This is an often fascinating look at alternative histories, of the "be-careful-what-you-wish-for" variety. There's lots of action and some quirky and interesting characters in both the past and present sections of the book. For time travel genre fans, it's a real winner with excellent narration.
If, like me, you tend to find yourself asking too many questions and thinking too many "but"s, just remember to suspend that gut disbelief in the whole concept - you'll have a good time inside "Time and Time Again"!

Haven't we all fantasized about going back in time and stopping the seaming domino-effect of the shot heard round the world. What if... Ben Elton (who, astonishingly is the same Ben Elton who co-wrote Black Adder(s) amongst other great, comical TV) creates a seemingly plausible time travel drama to end the War to End All Wars and setting up cause and effect that has you leaning in to see what will happen next. Clever, sad, occasionally harrowing, but excellent. This has started me on a time travel book bender. I hope I can find as good. Now to check out other Elton books...
