Engaging time travel in Time and Time Again

Time and Time Again - Ben Elton

I do enjoy a good time travel story. With the exception of Outlander which I never could get onboard with. (Yeah, yeah, I know. Simmer down.) Elton's book was a treat. He begins with by asking "If you could go back and change one moment in history, what would it be?" For "Guts" Stanton, widower and ex-soldier, it's 1914 and the explosive moments leading to the Great War. You don't need to know history to follow or enjoy this story. From the scientific premise behind the time travel to the historical events themselves, Elton keeps all details engaging and easy to follow.


Beyond the fun of the story, however, is a heartfelt adventure about one isolated man, who in standing outside of history, may just find his way back to connecting with society. Smug me, I figured I had the twists and turns all figured out but clever author that Elton is, he managed to surprise me on several memorable occasions.


If you're looking for a thrilling adventure, with a compelling hero, and the fun of alternate histories, then pick this up.
