Si Morley is recruited as a subject, and he must agree to abandon his current life with no questions asked even before finding out what the project is. Dissatisfied with his circumstances, he agrees, and soon is back in New York, trying to solve a mystery suggested by his friend Kate. Si moves into a boarding house, the better to scope out the object of his investigation, Jake Pickering. Si falls in love with Julia himself, and sets out to prove to all that Pickering is a villain and a scoundrel. Some of the book is social commentary: Si compares what he perceives as the happy, hopeful people of the late 19th century to the vapid, greedy people of the late 20th.

The 360 Book Review - Time and Time Again - Ben Elton

Book review: “Time and Again” by Jack Finney

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 novel is about traveling through time., As I said, not much snap. That suspense dissipates somewhat when Morley makes the first two of four trips across 88 years.
