Time and time again book
Time and Time Again by Ben EltonA review copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. How much history do I need to know in order to follow the plot? Will I still be able to enjoy this story? Looking back at those questions now, I have to laugh. Even though history is at the center of this plot and WWI is the inciting incident that sparks the fuse, Time and Time Again turned out to be about so much more. In truth, it focuses more on the repercussions of changing history and what it means for the main character—as well as for the whole world and the generations after him.

Ben Elton is a talented fellow. His humour is often satirical, off-the-wall and almost always makes me laugh. The only novel I've read of his prior to Time and Time Again is Stark — an early example of modern environmental fiction and a book that feels a lot like the love-child of Douglas Adams and Grant Naylor. I like Time Travel novels, there have been some great examples fairly recently. As such my expectation was high for this book, a time travel story with the infamous wit of Ben Elton. I was hoping that Time and Time Again would perhaps be a satirical romp through time or at least with a thick vein of the authors humour running through it. Unfortunately it's largely devoid of both.
At times it even seemed to mock the kind of book it is. Of course, Hugh, but failed to deliver. Time and Time Again promised a lot. The protagonist Hugh Stanton is a grieving widow who takes some convincing to become a time-traveller but the grieving widow thing does feel a little overplayed and part way through the book I did feel like telling Hugh to get a grip of himself.
Very amusing and the characters were very likeable. As I said before, and my favorite books are always those that make me see things in a whole new light, killed in a hit-and-run accident in aagain they never found the culprits. His wife and children are dead. Ben Eltons knowledge of History also brings a lot to the table.
