Currently Reading: To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
With a little bit of encouragement from Aarti (we are planning to chat about reading this together) I have finally opened it up, and I have to say that so far I am enjoying it very much. It has the kind of irreverence and wit which I associate with authors like Terry Pratchett and Jasper Fforde, as well as time travel. I was originally recommended this book because I had enjoyed Outlander by Diana Gabaldon so much. So far, the only thing that there seems to be in common really is the time travel aspect, but to me it is very different to that novel.
I suspect that at the end of this novel I am going to be left wondering why on earth I waited anywhere near this long to read it, and how soon can I glom my way through Connie Willis's backlist!
