Doomsday book by Connie Willis.

How are you finding it, Klenotka? I've only read her 'To Say Nothing of the Dog'. It was quite enjoyable but I don't know if it's typical of her style.

From what I understand, 'To Say Nothing of the Dog' is actually a sequel to ´Doomsday book´. It is funny cos I also read 'To Say Nothing of the Dog' first. It is obviously taken a lot less seriously and drags in some parts, while ´Doomsday´book is more serious from the beginning and I have to say, in chapter 4, I am totally hooked, while with 'To Say Nothing of the Dog', I was struggling to get through it. Connie Willis has a great style of writing, though she managed to keep my attention and she knows a lot about history because details are astonishing in both books.

I've read "Doomsday book", but not "To say nothing of the dog". I found it a slow start, but eventually I got into it.
 
Hugbot
Ah, this brings back memories! I read Doomsday Book about 20 years ago, and I still hold it in high regard. Pity I never read anything else by the author.

No wonder ... isn't the title an allusion to the subtitle of Three Men in a Boat?
 
Joe Dredd
Yes, the characters in Willis's novel even come across Jerome K Jerome & co at one point in the story.

It was he Three Men in a Boat reference that got me interested in it to start with.
 
Klenotka
Same. Three Men in a Boat mention in the synopsis got me into it. But I am still in the beginning of Doomsday book (chapter 4) so no spoilers Wink It was briefley mentioned and Mr. Dunworthy was in To Say nothing of the Dog but nothing specific.

I'm reading a 24 original novel Veto Power. I love me some Jack Bauer action and this book is fulfilling that nicely.

I met Reilly a couple months back and he was a very cool guy. I've had this in read pile for a while and now I'm going to crack it open.

The Tournament was a fun adventure.

Now onto:

A novel about the horrible book that almost killed the comic industry and the fictional murder of the books writer.

Names and places are changed, DC comics is AC, EC (Tales crome the crypt etc) is EF and the charlatan Dr Fredric Wertham is a Werner Fredrick in this book.

I love it its an interesting historical mystery, hard boiled writing style and even has some old timey (but new) comic illustratons inside

Any one who likes The Hunger Games might also like the Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness.
Read Criminal Minds which I enjoyed as a story very much. The slight niggle I have with all the Big Finish novels is that, to me, when they characterise Avon, they can't quite get the ambiguity that surrounds his every action when you watch him. That tantalising -is it this or that that motivates him here. I suppose that's the problem with all novels based on visual TV series ( and vice versa - televisuals of favorite books) that they seldom portray your favorite characters in the personal way you interpret or get them. Am finding this with Wolf Hall. Loved Mantell's books but, although brilliant Mark Rylance is not my Cromwell.

Any Blakes7 fan would enjoy historical fiction or fact books about the Tudors. Reading Elizabeth if York by Alison Weir which is fascinating. And CJ Sanssom's Shardlake Tudor detective stories have all the dystopian horror of Orbit and (probably) Game of Thrones. I say probably because I've never watched the latter. Only ever have room for one obsession at a time!
Also really enjoying The a Wife And.....series by Neil Perryman. Have his Wife and Blake books too. Find his depiction of life as a fan hilarious and touching. Are all us fans looking for something we can only find through fandom? As I kid I collected ( had my own 'museum) , made things, fantasised a lot when times were emotionally tough, felt like an outsider. Being a fan helps me satisfying all those interests and , although I have a lovely circle of friends and family, gives me a sense of 'belonging' to something uniquely me . Like Neil's Sue, my nearest and dearest only occasionally share my passions and think I am slightly mad so it's wonderful to be able to read and share opinions with others through Fandom.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.
