Charles Kerchner, October 30, 2013 (view all comments by Charles Kerchner)
Another fantastic time traveling tale from Connie Willis. This one is complex and rich with a large variety of characters (including a dog and a cat). It contains mystery, romance, adventure and comedy. Like many of Connie's books, it takes a while to get going but when it does, it really takes off and is hard to put down. A good change of scenery from most typical time traveling books.

A great time-travel novel with a mystery at its core, fast paced and funny with memorable characters. Until I read To Say Nothing of the Dog: Or How We Found the Bishop's Bird Stump at Last, I didn't even know what a bird stump was.

I never enjoyed time travel novels until I read Connie Willis. She uses time travel to flaunt her incredible ability to plot her complex stories leaving the reader exhausted and wildly entertained. And since Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat is one of my favorite books of all time, Willis' take on the era and the lovingly portrayed intersection of time travelers and Jerome's trio (plus dog) is a masterpiece. I have read this at least five times and intend to repeat as needed. As the classic recommendation of a book goes: I envy anyone reading this for the first time.

A delightfully farsical tale enabled by time travel that turns out to be more about hilarious characters than the unraveling of the universe.

When reading time travel stories, one usually expects technobabble, high drama, and glorification of the past--and those make for good reading but are a bit overdone. Willis' 'To Say Nothing Of The Dog' is a refreshing comedy of errors that brings to life the more inscrutably inane parts of the Victorian Era. She deftly pays homage to the wry humor and picturesque setting of Jerome K. Jerome's travelogue 'Three Men In A Boat' while adding the dimension of interpersonal & interclass relationships (verboten topics for the Victorian Jerome). It is quick, quirky, and more than a little deep in some places...just like the Thames. A great vacation read!

"Review" by , "I have long thought that Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men In A Boat is one of the highest points of Inimitable British Humor. I chuckle; I gurgle; I know those three men — to say nothing of the dog. And now I am convinced there was a woman concealed in that boat, too: Connie Willis."
"Review" by , "The most hilarious book of its kind since John Irving's The Water-Method Man and A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole."
"Review" by , "Willis effortlessly juggles comedy of manners, chaos theory and a wide range of literary allusions [with a] near flawlessness of plot, character and prose."
"Review" by , "An utter delight. Ms. Willis's unique, engaging voice will carry you off to a place where chaos theory makes perfect sense, time travel is a reasonable mode of transport, and safeguarding the fate of humanity is a respectable day job."
"Synopsis" by , It is 1888 and Ned Henry is shuttling between the 1940s and modern day, researching Coventry Cathedral for a patron who wants to rebuild it. But when the time continuum is disrupted, Ned must scramble to set things right.
