Ned Henry is badly in need of a rest. He's been shuttling between the 21st century and the 1940s searching for a Victorian atrocity called the bishop's bird stump. It's part of a project to restore the famed Coventry Cathedral, destroyed in a Nazi air raid over a hundred years earlier. But then Verity Kindle, a fellow time traveler, inadvertently brings back something from the past. Now Ned must jump back to the Victorian era to help Verity put things right--not only to save the project but to prevent altering history itself.… (mehr)

    Die Jahre des Schwarzen Todes von Connie Willis (amberwitch, Othemts, Patangel)
    amberwitch: A much darker book set in the same universe. This time the timetravel is to the dark middle ages instead of the gay Victorian era
    Othemts: To Say Nothing of the Dog is a more light-hearted time travel adventure which is sort of a sequel to Doomsday Book. Both are excellent, enjoyable novels.

Edwardiana, cream teas, and magic, in books told with a deft wit: that describes both To Say Nothing and Scholar of Magics.… (mehr)

    Corrupting Dr. Nice von John Kessel (nessreader)
    nessreader: Both have a flavour of screwball comedy romance and wilful anachronisms abound while the unromantic lovers sort themselves out. Corrupting Dr Nice reminded me a lot of Preston Sturges' film, The Lady Eve.

1st Review: The problem with laughing when reading this book is that you have to put it down until you have stopped laughing. And no one, in their right mind, would want to do that. Willis is one of the best authors I have ever read! Clever, funny, and marvelously brave, she dives headfirst into complex ideas and makes it work!

2nd Review: March is the month of rereads. And this was a delight. This time around, having polished my detective skills with extensive Agatha Christie reading (See my 2018 reading list), I caught much more of the details that Willis sprinkles generously but not obstructively in the novel that make the puzzle all fit together. Truly a masterful composition by Willis. Worth the read. And the reread. And the next reread. ( )

I could not get into this book. It might be a fine work but the humor did not work for me. ( )
  Drunken-Otter | Aug 20, 2021 |
I wish I knew why this didn't work for me. People have been telling me about this book for years.

Things I love: time travel, twee, Three Men in a Boat.

But, I felt like I didn't know the characters, didn't care if they fell in or out of love, and that the stakes were absurdly low. Page after page of Inconvenient Amnesia befuddling the bland pudding of a protagonist. There were some amusing lines, but JKJ has more, so it required a deliberate outburst of will and determination to finish this one before rereading Three Men in a Boat. ( )

I did not expect much from this book. A Victorian comedy of manners? Not my usual fare. But it promised time travel, so I had to check it out, and I was richly rewarded in more ways than I expected. This book is so many things, but above all, extremely funny. A welcome change after all the dark apocalyptic dystopias I read in recent years. I want more. ( )

I think the best value for money I've had during the pandemic was re-reading Connie Willis's “To Say Nothing of the Dog”, one of her time travelling historian novels based on the premise of historians travelling to different eras to study history. It's a comic, SF, mystery historical novel with the most convoluted, challenging and at the same time great fun and beautifully flowing plot. Working out what's going on is a challenge to the most hardened nerd, involving as it does fish, cathedrals and jumble sales, to say nothing of the dog. You don't have to read J.K. Jerome's Three Men and a Dog first but it will be a lot funnier if you do. This might not be the right moment for the first of the series about the Oxford historians travelling in time though - Doomsday Book, a tale of two pandemics involving a worrying shortage of toilet paper and some misguided Brexit protesters claiming that immigrants and/or time travel caused the pandemic...Connie Willis is probably a real time traveller as this was written in the 90s. “Blackout” and “All Clear” are the two last in the series and as they depict life in Blitz London they can put our crisis into perspective.

It was either this or half an hour a day murdering Norwegian by not being able to trill the ‘r’ sound like a native of Bodø…In hindsight maybe it’d have been half an hour of taking my mind off the world and I’d also have known such invaluable phrases as ‘why does that elk have a bicycle?’, ‘I am not afraid to die’ and yesterday’s timeless ’leave this place and never come back’ in Norwegian…





SF = Speculative Fiction. ( )

To Say Nothing of the Dog is charming. It’s funny and gentle and it has Victorian England and severely time lagged time travelers from the near future freaking out over Victorian England, it’s full of jumble sales and beautiful cathedrals and kittens. This is a complicated funny story about resolving a time paradox, and at the end when all is revealed everything fits together like oiled clockwork. But what makes it worth reading is that it is about history and time and the way they relate to each other. If it’s possible to have a huge effect on the past by doing some tiny thing, it stands to reason that we have a huge effect on the future every time we do anything.

I have read several stories by Connie Willis which I have enjoyed. However, these have all been short stories or novellas. At longer lengths, based on the three Willis novels I've read, I'm afraid I subscribe to the minority opinion that her work is vastly overrated. While I'm sure To Say Nothing of the Dog will sell well and may even garner Willis another Hugo or Nebula, it is another Willis book which adds to my opinion that she should stick with short fiction and stay away from time travel.

Gleeful fun with a serious edge, set forth in an almost impeccable English accent.

She sighed. "It's too bad. 'Placetne, magistra?' he said when he proposed, and then she said, 'Placet'. That's a fancy Oxford don way of saying yes. I had to look it up. I hate it when people use Latin and don't tell you what they mean.
It was actually more of a swoon than a faint. She slumped sedately to the flowered carpet, managing to avoid hitting any of the furniture--no small feat since the room contained a large round rosewood table, a small triangular table with a tintype album on it, a mahogany table with a bouquet of wax flowers under a glass dome on it, a horsehair sofa, a damask loveseat, a Windsor chair, a Morris chair, a Chesterfield chair, several ottomans, a writing desk, a bookcase, a knick-knack cabinet, a whatnot, a firescreen, a harp, an aspidistra, and an elephant's foot.
Plans, intentions, reasons. I could hear Professor Overforce now. "I knew it! This is nothing but an argument for a Grand Design!"

A Grand Design we couldn't see because we were part of it. A Grand Design we only got occasional, fleeting glimpses of. A Grand Design involving the entire course of history and all of time and space that, for some unfathomable reason, chose to work out its designs with cats and croquet mallets and penwipers, to say nothing of the dog. And a hideous piece of Victorian artwork. And us.

"History is character," Professor Peddick had said. And character had certainly played a part in the self-correction--Lizzie Bittner's devotion to her husband and the Colonel's refusal to wear a coat in rainy weather, Verity's fondness for cats and Princess Arjumand's fondness for fish and Hitler's temper and Mrs. Mering's gullibility. And my time-laggedness. If they were all part of the self-correction, what did that do to the notion of free will? Or was free will part of the plan as well?

One of the first symptoms of time-lag is a tendency to maudlin sentimentality, like an Irishman in his cups or a Victorian poet cold-sober.
It is a temporal universal that people never appreciate their own time, especially transportation.
