"In Time and Time Again, international best-selling author Ben Elton, takes readers on a thrilling journey through early 20th-Century Europe. It's the 1st of June 1914 and Hugh Stanton, ex-soldier and celebrated adventurer is quite literally the loneliest man on earth. No one he has ever known or loved has been born yet. Perhaps now they never will be. Stanton knows that a great and terrible war is coming. A collective suicidal madness that will destroy European civilization and bring misery to millions in the century to come. He knows this because, for him, that century is already history. Somehow he must change that history. He must prevent the war. A war that will begin with a single bullet. But can a single bullet truly corrupt an entire century? And, if so, could another single bullet save it?"-- Provided by publisher

I thoroughly enjoyed the first 75% of this book as I wondered where the author was going with this plot. But I found that I didn’t enjoy where it went.

I am surprised to see several harsh critiques! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There was a moment where I felt the adult nudity was unnecessary, but the concept of time and the incorporation of histor(ies) themselves were phenomenal in my mind! I was engrossed until the very end; and the ending, though not what any reader would WANT per se, was very intriguing.

If you could go back in time and change any pivotal incident in history, what would you choose? Hugh Stanton, ex-soldier and historian, is asked to go back 1914 to prevent the assassination that led to World War I. With lovely descriptions of pre-war Europe to an exciting plot full of unexpected twists and turns, this book was a great read. Lovers of time travel, history, and what ifs should enjoy it.

Surprised at harsh critiques. I enjoyed this book! Solid look at early 20th century history plus the element of time travel, with twists & turns along the way. I couldn't put it down!

If you enjoy a time travel theme and would like an easy read, this book fits the bill.

I agree with the above review. A very poorly-executed performance, indeed. I expected more from the novel's initial premise. Ward Moore has done it better in his 1953 masterpiece, "Bring The Jubilee."

The adage is true-never judge a book by its cover,or writer,in this case. The basic premise-Sir Isaac Newton posits a theory re time ,space and gravity...a notion sure to pique this reader's imagination,coupled with a writer I associate with wit and talent. How wrong one can be.Turgid,repetitive,poorly drawn characters ,heavy doses of sentiment and an ending that is not worth struggling through the adolescent writings to discover. This story has adult sex and swearing,but does not match up to adult expectations...
