I work in a library and yesterday a customer and I ended up talking passionately about this wonderful short story collection. When I got home last night I pulled About Time off my book shelf and immersed myself in it for the first time in ages. What a wonderful, wonderful collection Jack Finney put together here. The charm and old-fashioned (but never dull or outdated!) appeal in his work just cannot be denied! :) ( )

A rather quaint collection of stories on the concept of time. Enjoyable read, but not especially engrossing. ( )

Fun, easy reading book about time travel, search for better times and places, and magic. Didn't think I'd like it. Looked at it for a specific story but I read the entire book. ( )
