Oh my gosh, I had forgotten how funny this book is. Not that I'd forgotten it was amusing, but it's downright hilarious.
Set in the same universe as Fire Watch and Doomsday Book, this one is pure comedy as the historians race to find out exactly where the Bishop's Birdstump (a hideous example of Victorian art at it's worst) was when Coventry was bombed.
And to put back a cat. Or not.
And fix the paradox they created. Or did they?
If you read nothing else by Connie Willis, you should really read this one.
(If you read nothing else by Connie Willis, though, I may seriously have to question our friendship... and your sanity.)
