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.

The Doomsday Book lives up to its name. The book is absolutely devastating.

Kivrin Engle is a historian in a world where historians do field-research by time-traveling. She has sought all her life to be the first historian to go back to the Middle Ages and her dream has come true: she is sent back to the year 1320 to do three weeks of research. But, yet, something goes wrong. Upon her arrival, she is deathly ill. Once Kivrin recovers, the book follows her life in the 14th-century household. And then the other shoe drops. The year is not 1320, but it is 1348, the year that the bubonic plague came to Oxfordshire. Here is the doomsday: Kivrin watches, helplessly, as everyone dies.

The book additionally follows the modern timeline. The technician in charge of Kivrin's "drop" into the past is struck immediately with the same illness that Kivrin faced and from his fevered rantings, it is obvious to Mr. Dunworthy, Kivrin's mentor-of-sorts, that something went wrong. It is among the lockdown and preventative measures taken in the modern era that Mr. Dunworthy tasks himself with finding what went wrong and how to fix it. There is a direct parallel between the Black Death in that timeline and the flu epidemic in the modern era. Even with the advances in modern medicine (remember - this is a world where they have *time travel*), many still die. Even Mr. Dunworthy himself comes down with it and so it is not until he recovers that he can stage his grand rescue mission for Kivrin. He finds her utterly shaken and brings her home.

Willis expertly traverses several themes here: from religion and the problem of evil to the conflict between man and nature. I think even the weaknesses of the book can be viewed as strengths: the length of time in the beginning where it drags and seems like there is no storyline to follow reveals itself as a way for us to get to know these medieval characters and for the pain of their deaths to be real to us. And Willis' portrayal of Kivrin's grief during all of this is sharp like a knife: we see her denial, her bargaining, and finally her acceptance (but not her peace). As I finished the book, I could not put it down and I was devastated at the end. ( )

This novel of 578 pages could easily have been 478, or even 378 pages. A 1993 Hugo Award Winner, I enjoyed the way it exposed the UK government national health care system as clearly inadequate. I will forever remember the 1961 Hugo Award Winner, Walter M. Miller, Jr's 'A Canticle for Leibowitz.' I will forever remember how long it took me to read Connie Willis' 'Doomsday Book.' ( )

Very long, and almost more of a story of dealing with pandemics (influenza in modern times, plague in middle ages). It dragged a little at some points, but was still very good. ( )
  KrakenTamer | Oct 23, 2021 |
I really enjoyed this book, but I felt like it ended too early. I also felt like it focused too much on the "present" side of the story and not enough on the stuff in the past. ( )
  Powerfuldragon | Oct 21, 2021 |
I feel like I've lived, breathed and died this book for the last three days and I never want to look at it again. Willis doesn't do anything wrong; in fact, by the laws of writing, this book is almost flawless. But it is also Terrible. Burke calls it "sublime". Whatever it is, I'm glad that tomorrow I can take this book back to the library and never touch it again. ( )

"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.
