An interesting and unique look at New York,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Time and Again (Taschenbuch)Jack Finney's 1970 masterpiece is a great look at old New York. Hasn't anyone that has ever been to New York wished they could take a step back in time and see what it was like when the Dakota was considered the suburbs? When horse and buggies roamed the streets and Central Park?
Time and Again is the story of Si Morley who agrees to do just that - try to take a step back in time. While the book does not focus on the scientific - it certainly is descriptive. I felt that I was walking along side Si as he strolled the streets of yesteryear.
While reading this book - the reader must realize that this was originally penned in 1970 and has gained something akin to cult status so if some plot lines seem a bit familiar they were copied from Time and Again.
While I liked The Alientist better for it's plot - Time and Again certainly recreated New York in the 1800's more vividly for me. It is certainly a worthwhile read.
