Time and Again Summary & Study Guide
This novel of speculative fiction tells the story of a lonely, frustrated artist in New York City who journeys back and forth through time. It is in many ways written in the tradition of similar novels written by H. Wells and Jules Verne, using real-life science as a springboard for a narrative that explores the possibilities of what might happen if the principles behind that science were taken further. Within that context, the novel explores themes of personal responsibility and the relationship between past and present. The novel begins as Simon Si Morley's regular day at work as a graphic artist in advertising is interrupted by the arrival of an unexpected visitor, Ruben Prien, who invites him to participate in a mysterious government project. At first Si is hesitant, but is soon convinced to give the project a try. He then undergoes a bewildering series of tests, the results of which prove he's an exceptionally good candidate - but for what, exactly, is still unclear.

The 360 Book Review - Time and Time Again - Ben Elton
I was glad I happened to purchase the illustrated version of the book as the old photo's and sketches added to my enjoyment. Great ending for a book club discussion. Loved the book! So, how did Si Morley ever get back there if Danzinger was never born?? Also, would have liked to know how Si and Julie's final meeting and life together turned out as well as Jake's cover up of his identity.
He enjoys the sights of the city at that time: still much farming on Manhattan, the Dakota and Museum of Natural History standing pretty much alone, the arm of the Statue of Liberty standing by itself in Madison Square, and many other things. But he also falls in love with Julia Charbonneau, who is engaged to a brusque and brutal man named Jake Pickering. It turns out Pickering has some sort of blackmail scheme going, and Si must decide whether to meddle with events. Finney's novel is nearly a classic: sufficiently rich and accomplished to qualify as literature. He supplements the excellent story with historic photos and drawings the latter supposedly drawn by his hero , and it's rather surprising this tale has not yet been filmed.

Time and Again is a illustrated novel by American writer Jack Finney. The many illustrations in the book are real, though, as explained in an endnote, not all are from the period in which the actions of the book take place. It had long been rumored that Robert Redford would adapt the book into a movie. The project has never come to fruition. Though a film of this novel has never been made, a film, Somewhere in Time features a similar time travel technique. The film concerns a young man unhappy with his life as a playwright. He meets a scientist named Dr.
