Ellen’s January Recommendation

The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis

doomsday book“I checked this out on my Kindle and was fascinated. I’ll be looking for more by this author!

The Doomsday Book is a combination of science fiction and historical fiction – time travel in the 21st century enables historians to go back in time to do direct historical research. Kivrin, an Oxford student, is sent to the Middle Ages – but due to an error, she arrives at the time of the Black Death. Her modern counterparts work to retrieve her, but at the same time they are experiencing a deadly epidemic. The depth of the book adds to the consuming story line, with great characterization, extensive research, and layered meanings. ” – Ellen
