Time and Time Again
Time and Time Again: A Novel | Ben Elton
39 posts | 28 read | 87 to read
If you had one chance to change history...Where would you go? What would you do? Who would you kill? 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 first 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?

An interesting concept around time travel and changing a pivotal moment in history. I struggled with most of this book until near the end when things became a bit more interesting. Full review here: https://thecuriousmagpie2018.wordpress.com/2019/10/12/review-time-and-time-again...

I always hesitate to state a #preferredgenre...too hard to choose... But I do have a lot of loved books that feature time travel and/or alternate realities ⌚📚

TrishB I live a bit of time travel too 👍🏻 3mo
sblbooks Me too! I think it's actually considered a subgenre of fantasy. The odd thing is fantasy is one of my least favorite genres. 3mo

I sure am happy that I didn‘t miss this one. This book is a gripping historical thriller. It‘s the year 2025 when an ex-military man hooks up with a group of academics who have been guarding Sir Issac Newton‘s “secret to time-travel” for 300 years. They have one opportunity to travel to 1914 in order to stop WWI from occurring, thus changing the course of the 20th century. It was great writing, great characters and a great history lesson!

Texreader Awesome review 5mo

Time travel and historical revisionism plus a dollop of humour from the writer of Blackadder.

I really enjoyed this one.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cambridge Scholars find away to send someone back in time to 1914 to stop the First World War and who do they send....Bear Grylls!!! 😆 I really wanted to love this; the history was spot on and fascinating but I couldn‘t connect to the characters and the plot was kinda meh! Interesting still tho! 👍🏻

Cinfhen Still need to read as the awesome @TrishB gifted this book to me ages ago! 11mo

This was really really good. All about that eternal question of if you could change one event in history what would it be? But it continues into the next more important question of how would that change affect the history yet to come?

A stand alone, if you enjoy time travel in your books then this should be a must read. Great story with an intriguing twist towards the end!

TrishB One of my all time fav books 👍🏻 2y
Nute Sounds good. I enjoy stories with time travel. Never heard of this book. Checking it out soon! 2y

I've been in bed all weekend with a cold so I managed to finish this book today and it was great! Historical fiction and alternate worlds set in Europe in 1914 just before WWI started. Could history really be changed if we could change just one key event? It was really interesting.

Very good. Was gripped all the way through. Questioned my idea of history and how things can spin on a single person or event, even the ending suggested that if something had been done that wasn't done would the whole story I had read would have been totally different. Recommend. 📖📚

Second part of my package: 3 books from my favorite genres that look super interesting and by Australian authors. I loved the cute postcards inside each book too. Serena, thank you so much for everything you sent me. It looks like you really took the time to pick things I would really enjoy ❤️. Looking forward to starting these books and the yummy snacks! 😊. #Summersantagoespostal #Summersolsticebookexchange

MrsMalaprop I do hope you enjoy them. I figured that by choosing Australian authors in the genres you like, then I could be sure you hadn't read them. Time and Time Again was on you TBR too I think? Happy reading 👏. 3y

This book had the potential to either be good or be a dud. Time travel is always a device that can ruin a good story. Especially the going back in time to fix a great wrong. This book kept me on my toes and was really enjoyable.

This book!, again!!, is one of two that have been my most worthwhile reads to process a year that has been world-wide crappy elections and votes. Maybe somebody had to come back in their time machine and ensure Trump and Turnbull and Brexit prevailed bc the alternatives would have been the catalyst for so much worse? Maybe we're destined to not know? Or maybe this is just the bargaining stage of the 5 Stages Of Grief. Who knows? 🤔🤔🗽🕰

Kalalalatja I hadn't thought of that, but it makes everything a little bit better 👏 3y
TrishB Loved this book 😀 3y
EnidBiteEm @Kalalalatja Re-reading it definitely made me feel better. Elton's exploration of fate and faith is very close to how I think the world works, time-travelling opportunities or not 😀 3y
EnidBiteEm @TrishB I ❤️ all Ben Elton's novels, but this one is my FAVOURITE. 3y
TrishB @EnidBiteEm I prefer his historical books rather than the comedy ones, he is a very talented writer to do so many different styles. Like you, this is my favourite 💙 I have brought this as a gift for quite a few people! 3y

If you could go back in time ... Could a single bullet really start a war? Could a single bullet stop one? If you could go back in time and stop some of the biggest madness and suffering the world has ever seen! HOW would you stop it? Like many Ben Eltons, I #couldntputitdown #septphotochallenge #somethingforseptember

bookfrivolity Ooo.. What a fantastic concept.. 3y
