Summary

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?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* What if you had the opportunity to change one thing in history? Would you do it? What would you change? These are the central questions at the heart of Elton's hybrid historical fiction-time travel adventure. Due to a mathematical calculation done by Sir Isaac Newton and passed down in secret for close to 300 years not to be opened until Christmas Eve 2024 it's possible to travel back to the early summer of 1914. Hugh Stanton, ex-military and overall adventurer, is recruited by the Chronations, a group of Trinity scholars who have confirmed Newton's figures, to be the hero who will stop WWI from ever happening, thus saving millions of lives and, more important, stopping the twentieth century from entering into a spiral of bloodshed. The setup is compelling, the historical aspects are well researched, and the time-travel story line, though not well explained, wraps around itself in a tantalizing manner sure to please even the most hardcore time-travel purists. However, it is the complex, nuanced, and likable Stanton who will grab readers as they blindly follow and actively root for him with each turn of the page. He will do anything to set history right, even when he is what makes it wrong. Thought provoking and captivating, this is a novel for fans who love Stephen King's 11/22/63 (2011), Kate Atkinson's Life after Life (2013), and any of the award-winning time-travel hybrids by Connie Willis. A must-read with an awesomely unsettling ending that has very real implications for a modern audience.--Spratford, Becky Copyright 2015 Booklist"
