For Kivrin, preparing an on-site study of one of the deadliest eras in humanity's history was as simple as receiving inoculations against the diseases of the fourteenth century and inventing an alibi for a woman traveling alone. For her instructors in the twenty-first century, it meant painstaking calculations and careful monitoring of the rendezvous location where Kivrin would be received. But a crisis strangely linking past and future strands Kivrin in a bygone age as her fellows try desperately to rescue her. In a time of superstition and fear, Kivrin -- barely of age herself -- finds she has become an unlikely angel of hope during one of history's darkest hours.… (mehr)

    Die Farben der Zeit oder ganz zu Schweigen von dem Hunde und wie wir des Bischofs Vogeltränke schließlich doch fanden von Connie Willis (amberwitch, Othemts, Patangel)
    amberwitch: A much lighter story set in the same universe.
    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.

    Eifelheim von Michael Flynn (Ape)
    Ape: Far from identical stories, but both are sci-fi takes on the black death (Eifelheim: Aliens, Doomsday Book: Time Travel.) There are numerous similarities, and I think if you like one the other might be worth looking into.

Repetitive as hell. Two or three hundred pages less would have helped. ( )

Not a hit for me. Boring characters in the modern timeline and pretty obvious danger in past timeline.

The writing took too long to come together in the modern timeline; every character was running around like a chicken with their head cut off in the middle of a crisis and not a single one of these Oxford professors knows how to run the technology their using. There's a single guy in the whole of the university who's available to run the machine and he gets taken out of commission in the very beginning.

There's a lot of nail biting in the modern timeline, lots of finger pointing and playing of the blame game but no one knows how to do anything - at least the people in charge don't.

In the medieval timeline, the student is rightly disoriented and confused for a time but there is very little actual scholarship going on in her parts. She is sent to find out something but due to a mechanical error, she spends a lot of time simply figuring out how to communicate/what language everyone is speaking.

In the end, this book was a drag to get through but I refused to give up on it and powered through. I don't recommend this for people who want a fast moving time travel story because this is not one of those.

What can I say about this book apart from the fact that it has something in it that most every reader will enjoy, and that this is the book that started my love of this particular Author. I had a copy of this lent to me whilst I was laid up with pneumonia, and a friend asked me if I had ever read anything written by the Author; little did they know then that by introducing me to them they would be creating a monster.

There are many characters in this novel, both futuristic and from the past, and the main protagonist is a gripping female student who time travels back to the 1300’s. The way in which this character copes with a time so at odds to her own, with so many restrictions when it comes to women is what makes her a person I immediately could connect with. Throw into the mix the issue of the Black Death and this makes her even more compelling. Throughout the novel the reader can follow her progress as she comes to terms with the times she now finds herself in and can root for her every step of the way. Her determination and courage shines through as the times degenerate into one of sickness and death. The Author is equally generous when introducing their other characters in this book, although there were a few that I thought were rather superfluous to the plot itself; there is the concerned and overworked professor who I felt was the very picture of the stereotypical academic, and also the ‘mother hen’ type character who fussed over everyone and anyone. I didn’t find any of the characters unlikeable, and this rather surprised me as there is usually one that I would like to meet a miserable demise.

When it comes to location descriptions and really setting the mood for the 1300’s it is apparent that the Author did a great deal of research into the time period, and the effects the Black Death had on families and attitudes of that time. Unfortunately the editing was not as tight as I would have expected in a novel as gripping and fast paced as this one, and this is the reason for the four thumbs rating. Overall though this is a well written and entertaining book, that keeps the reader turning the pages to the very end.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a great story and/or is interested in historical fiction, sci-fi and fantasy.

2022 Book #29. 1992. A young historian is sent into the past to learn about pre-plague Oxford. Unfortunately something goes wrong and she ends up in the plague. Interesting time travel story with enough British witticism to make it very enjoyable. ( )

"And lest things which should be remembered perish with time and vanish from the memory of those who are to come after us, I, seeing so many evils and the whole world, as it were, placed within the grasp of the Evil One, being myself as if among the dead, I, waiting for death, have put into writing all the things that I have witnessed.
    And, lest the writing should perish with the writer and the work fail with the laborer, I leave parchment to continue this work, if perchance any man and any of the race of Adam escape this pestilence and carry on the work which I have begun . . . " Brother John Clyn, 1349

I'm in a lot of trouble, Mr. Dunworthy. I don't know where I am, and I can't speak the language. Something's gone wrong with the interpreter. I can understand some of what the contemps say, but they can't understand me at all. And that's not the worst of it. I've caught some sort of disease. I don't know what it is.
