Inhaltsangabe

Connie Willis' Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Doomsday Book uses time travel for a serious look at how people connect with each other. In this Hugo-winning companion to that novel, she offers a completely different kind of time travel adventure: a delightful romantic comedy that pays hilarious homage to Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat.

When too many jumps back to 1940 leave 21st century Oxford history student Ned Henry exhausted, a relaxing trip to Victorian England seems the perfect solution. But complexities like recalcitrant rowboats, missing cats, and love at first sight make Ned's holiday anything but restful - to say nothing of the way hideous pieces of Victorian art can jeopardize the entire course of history.

Delightfully aided by the perfect comedic timing of narrator Steven Crossley, To Say Nothing of the Dog shows once again why Connie Willis is one of the most talented writers working today.

Kritikerstimmen

"Willis effortlessly juggles comedy of manners, chaos theory and a wide range of literary allusions [with a] near flawlessness of plot, character and prose." (Publishers Weekly)

    I love a good story, even more so, if it is artfully told.

    "Harmless Fun, '3 Men in a Boat' reloaded"

    Connie Willis is one of my favorite science fiction authors and most of her work resonates deeply with me. This book is probably not the best book, she ever wrote, the story is pretty harmless, but it is a good read nevertheless.
    The plot is simply told. 2 young historians, Ned Henry and Verity, are sent to the Victorian Era to find the bishop's bird stump, which somehow seems to be important for the reconstruction of the Coventry Cathedral.
    Unfortunately the presence of Ned and Verity changes critical events and the course of history is at risk to change for the worse. The harder they try, the worse it seems to get.
    The story is quite funny at times. The glimpses at the Victorian Era and its peculiarities, the similarities to the Victorian novel '3 men in a boat', the strong and bizarre characters and of course the dog and the cat make the story quite charming and unique.
