Second Time Around

by Nancy Moser
Finished August 10, 2009

This is the sequel to The Time Lottery. It was an enjoyable book, but not as good as the first book. She did a fairly good job of explaining important plot points from the first book without boring those who had alredy read it.

But, she did repeat some of the themes and characters - the greedy, selfish characters; the wise church-goer; the unethical media people.

Three more characters get the chance to go back in time to change their lives and correct past mistakes. The media causes problems when they dig up dirt on the three Time Lottery winners. Greedy family members hope to profit from their loved one's trip to the past.

Still, I enjoyed reading it and would probably read another if Nancy Moser would write one. I read descriptions of some of her other books. She's got great ideas, but her writing style just doesn't do justice to her ideas.

The Time Lottery books would make a good TV series.
