    (speaking of time travel) on Connie Willis--thank you, whoever you are! After devouring the Doomsday Book, I started tunneling (or maybe hunkering is a better term in this case?) through all her WWII novels, and even the short stories. I LOVE her writing! And I find so many different levels to discuss.

    I noticed on Amazon some readers complaining that Blackout and All Clear were too long....?? Hah! I would have loved a thousand more pages!

    I love it that Obama's channeling Harry Truman: "I don't give 'em hell; I just tell the truth and they think it's hell!"

      or me.  I like Willis, too.

      I liked Blackout and All Clear, but I had to wait between books which was not helpful.  Some people here would have been glad to have the whole story in one huge book.

      I thought it really showed what the war was like in trying to travel around England.  I felt as if I were there.
