Audible Editor Reviews

Science fiction writer H. Beam Piper published this short story, "Time and Time Again", in 1947. A self-educated man, Piper was a prolific writer until his suicide in 1964. In this 46-minute story, a wounded World War III soldier is miraculously transported back to his childhood. Fortunately or unfortunately, he still remembers everything from his adulthood. But, as many writers throughout the centuries have wondered, can the future be altered? Jim Roberts gives an enjoyable performance. His formal tone fits the work while his easy pacing makes the science jargon simple to follow. This audiobook's surprise conclusion will surely satisfy listeners.

Good story

I don't know if I would call this story "awe-inspiring" as another listener did but it was certainly a very good story. I thought the reader was quite good as well. Five stars, overall.
