62. To Say NOTHING of the DOG

By:  Connie Willis
Rated 5 Stars
From:  Library

I loved this book.  It was deliciously quirky, full of tongue-in-cheek humor and had a satisfying, if unexpected ending.

LIBRARY SUMMARY:  In her first full-length novel since her critically acclaimedDoomsday BookConnie Willis, winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards, once again visits the unpredictable world of time travel.  But this time the result is a joyous journey into a past and future of comic mishaps and historical cross-purposes, in which the power of human love can still make all the difference.

At once a mystery novel, a time-travel adventure, and a Shakespearean comedy,To Say Nothing of the Dogis a witty and imaginative tale of misconceptions, misunderstandings, and a chaotic world in which the shortest distance between two points is never a straight line, and the secret to the universe truly lies "in the details."
