Harkaway has fun (as does the reader) with this story of a ne’er-do-well who finds his attempt at a spot of thieving lends him in a whole heap of trouble. Heap of trouble as being bounced back to the beginning of time. This gives him the opportunity to reflect on the error of his ways, but the Butterfly Effect of travelling back in time has even more serious impact than in A Sound of Thunder.
