This is in reality a reread and I'll stand by the original four stars that I gave it. It entertained me and made me smile just as much as the first time I read it. I felt I had to read it again as I have the second book now and wanted a quick refresher. I have also recently read Anubis Gates which also involves both time travel and the poet Samuel Coleridge. These two books are as different as can be and are both two of the best books I have read.
