Time and Time Again
Time and Time Again
by Ben Elton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, Ive been reading a lot of time ..., 27 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Time and Time Again (Paperback)
Loved it, Ive been reading a lot of time travel stuff and this is up there with the better stuff.

I liked the plot, and unlike some of the other reviews I dont think its a stupid premise I loved it bought Newton into it and tried to explain his life too. As time travel explanations go its initial premise is quite elegant, granted there were tiny aspects of how it supposedly affected things that didnt quite seem to follow but it didnt affect my enjoyment of the book.

excellent product, nice clips and security bar for when its attached to something else (such as a rotary drier).... pleased not to be wasting more money on plastic chains and clips that snap off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable effect, 22 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I simply cannot believe the difference these have made.

Ive got anaemia at the moment and have been dragging myself through most days, feeling unable to concentrate or do much, generally beyond awful.

And you know how when you feel like that you grab at straws, just try stuff without really expecting it to help, well that was why I bought this. There was a vague bit of logic to it, Id felt better on Floradix than the GP prescribed iron, and casually wondered if it was the added B-vitamins. Two days on these things and its like I got my life back. Im feeling like my normal self again. I hardly even seem to need any sleep, 4 to 5 hours and then waking up naturally.

This morning I was actually driven to googling to try to work out what on earth was going on, its so dramatic an effect....

4.0 out of 5 stars Well designed, 4 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There was some sort of adhesive on the suction cap which seems to work well so far.

The knob bit unscrews allowing part of it to stay stuck to the wall, while the compartment bit can be cleaned.... seems well designed for a cheap item.... but obviously a lot relies on it staying stuck to the wall.

I will update review, if it falls off at any point

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting read, 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this, the ending is a tiny bit too sugary.... but the rest of it was wonderful

Nice plot with the characters moving through various situations, only the narrator is really well developed as a character though, I for one could have handled a slightly thinker book with a little bit more character development. But overall lovely relaxing read, which kept me awake reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow clunky novel, that doesnt really deliver what a sci fi audience expect., 5 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Could have been so much better if it had tried to do so much and only succeeded in doing none of it very well.

There is some parody going on of Victorian literature, that makes it a bit of a slog to read.

I didnt find it funny at all let alone hilarious. The characters were ok but could have had more depth all a bit cardboard (maybe that was part of the 'joke' too....)
It didnt seem very sci fi really, the focus was all over the place and not melded together, more bitty chunks of various aims the author had.... sci fi here, then a bit of an attempt at comedy, then 'romance' chucked in, then a parody of a Victorian novel, then a bit of sci fi.... it really felt awkward.... but above all it was SLOW for anyone not expecting the victorian novel style (which I wasnt).

The 'clues' were also very obvious and huge wedges of the book were spent just waiting for the lead characters to catch on, thats never a good thing

Im doing a bit of a Time Travel Book Marathon at the moment and have just finished Time and Again by Jack Finney, and the historic and romantic elements were tackled in much more to my taste in his book, there was a depth to the depiction and everything seemed to fit together a bit more coherently.

3.0 out of 5 stars Less robust than Im used to fom Wellbake, 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its not as robust as Wellbake has been in the past I dont know if they have changed their design or if its a cheap rip-off item.... either way no where near as impressed as with previous Wellbake purchase (where the rigid external supports were very thick and held the pan in shape well)..
