Hitler’s bombers attempt to pummel London into submissionNow the situation has grown even dire Small discrepancies in the historical record seem to indicate that one or all of them have somehow affected the past changing the outcome of the war The belief that the past can be observed but never altered has always been a core belief of time travel theory but suddenly it seems that the theory is horribly tragically wrongMeanwhile in 2060 Oxford the historians’ supervisor Mr Dunworthy and seventeen year old Colin I hate this book so much I hate it so much that it hurts I hate that I spent an audible credit on it I hate that it s about subjects I LOVE WWII Bletchley Park And it still sucks It s not badly written it s just a terrible story and the lead characters are whiny dumb ignorant and keep switching voices that last isn t the author s fault I HATE that I know WWII trivia than these historians do That part is the worst That and the idea that three professional time travellers stuck in some kind of boring time travelling paradox shit thing would NOT PUT THEIR HEADS TOGETHER but spend what seems like fifty years KEEPING THINGS FROM ONE ANOTHER Oh my brain my poor poor brain To spare one another worrying They suspect that the very fabric of time and space has been damaged or something but they are worried about WORRYING ONE ANOTHERAnd what the HELL is that CRAP with the whole Importance of Being Ernest thing WHAT IS THAT Oh your God The only excuse for that is if they re code names or something to confuse Jerrah but No I think these idiots are really called Ernest and Prism and Lady Bracknell I CANNOT TAKE ANY MOREAnd really mentioning Shakespeare all the time doesn t make all the missed connections and mistaken identities allusive It s just crap Same goes for Agatha ChristieAlso I guessed the BIG SURPRISE It hasn t been revealed yet but I already guessed it Unless I m wrong So I guess I ll keep listening til the bitter end And rant some at that time 193Well I think I m within a few minutes of the end of this instalment Aren t there meant to be 3 Gah In the last say 2 hours I m listening to audio or I never would have got this far the plot has finally tightened up to the point where there is not an hour of unnecessarily literal descriptions of confused frustrated people running around in circles and keeping things from one another The actual STORY of Blackout and All Clear is ok but you could cut great chunks out in between actual happenings and not lose a thing except me driving down the freeway yelling SHUT UP a lotOh but I apologise about my rude Importance of Being Ernest outburst It WAS code Whatever it still suckedI was also wrong about the surprise but mine was better I ll update again when I finally have really finished

Templer who nurses a powerful crush on Polly are engaged in a frantic and seemingly impossible struggle of their own to find three missing needles in the haystack of historyTold with compassion humor and an artistry both uplifting and devastating All Clear is than just the triumphant culmination of the adventure that began with Blackout It’s Connie Willis’s most humane heartfelt novel yet a clear eyed celebration of faith love and the uiet ordinary acts of heroism and sacrifice too often overlooked by histor This is a wonderful and amazing book It really is the second half of a book On the same day I went from finishing Blackout and started reading this book and it was like going from one chapter to another not like going from one book to anotherThank you to Goodreads friend and fellow group member Sarah Pi who didn t let me see answers to my uestions and therefore helped me avoid unwanted spoilersI am very proud that less than 13 the way through this book I figured something out probably because of all of the mysteries I ve read and I m often able to prematurely guess their outcomes too Even though I figured out that important plot point the book managed to stay suspenseful for me all the way until the last page The farther I got into the book the harder it became to take any breaks from reading it I was enthralledI love Blackout and this book so much didn t even mind that they re books 4 and 5 in the Oxford time travel series normally I d want to read the books in exact order but once I started these books I couldn t put them aside to read the earlier books firstThis is a brilliant historical fiction and time travelspeculative fiction book with a very complex time travel story It s ingenious and a great deal of fun It s funny tragic romantic heartwarming and completely engrossing I cared a great deal about many characters I got in lots of chuckles and smiles and tears alsoI adored how Agatha Christie makes appearances I ve loved her mystery books for decades Very cool Also appropriate were all the mentions of Ernest Shackleton and his expedition to the South PoleThis is a beautifully crafted book I enjoyed how the dialogue between characters was in uotes and characters internal dialoguethoughts were in italics The uotes that are at the beginning of each chapter are fabulous both their literary and historical origins and how they relate to what is going on in the book s story are perfectI knew a fair amount about the Blitz have read about it and listened to people who were there talk about it I think that I learned from this bookbooks than any other source to date I think I fully appreciated for the first time what people in that time and place experienced I can recommend this book to any reader who likes reading historical fiction andor time travel books andor any type of speculative fiction It s imperative to read Blackout and then this book preferably one right after the other as I was fortunate to doThe very best thing about this book and why I think it has appeal for all readers whatever their favorite genres are is how it shows the importance in life of loving and caring about and caring for others I was practically bawling by the end but this theme runs throughout the entire story

    Let me begin by saying that The Doomsday Book is one of my all time favorite novels definitely top ten uite possibly top five and I'm also tremendously fond of Connie Willis's Lincoln's Dreams as well When I knew she had a new book well duolo

    Time traveling historians fight their way home This book was ridiculous I feel bad writing that because 1 so many people liked it so

    It's here It's hereThe only reason why this is not a 5 is because the middle section of Blackout and All Clear and I count them as one book because really they are annoyed me a bit with the obsession over whether they changed the outcome of the war and where the retrieval team over and over I understand why Willis did this comple

    I hate this book so much I hate it so much that it hurts I hate that I spent an audible credit on it I hate that it's about subjects I LOVE WWII Bletchley Park And it still sucks It's not badly written it's just a terrible story and the lead characters are whiny dumb ignorant and keep switching voices that last isn't the

    I found this book to be both amazing and frustrating I don't recall ever having such mixed feelings about a book When it's rolling it's a rare and rewarding page turner and when it bogs down it feels like a week of reading before the story moves on There are way too many pages where we go inside a character's head and we listen to that character wonder She'll wonder if she did something wrong and lost the war for England she'll

    All Clear and Blackout are an excellent way to learn about World War IIThe Blitz in England It is however an extremely frustrating book on many other levelsOf particular concern to me was the tendency for the historians to explain details that the other historians should hand in their degrees for not knowing It was one thing in Book 1 to have to explain that Agatha Christie was a novelist It's another thing altogether to revolve

    This is a wonderful and amazing book It really is the second half of a book On the same day I went from finishing Blackout and started reading this book and it was like going from one chapter to another not like going from one book to anotherThank you to Goodreads friend and fellow group member Sarah Pi who didn’t let me see answers to my uestions and therefore helped me avoid unwanted spoilersI am very proud that less

    This was unnecessarily long It should have been combined with the first part Blackout and edited into one book The characterizations are very good but what is done with those characters is often pointless All they do is worry and s

  9. says:

    Last time on Ben's reviews there's a very palpable somewhat ironic fear here because in a way these three are frightened of the Blitz than the stalwart contemporaries or contemps as the historians call them So for a moment there's a justifiable and interesting suspense Unfortunately Willis attempts to sustain that suspense entirely too long all the characters in this book are ninnies They complain about the retrieval team not showing up and

    The second half of Blackout than a seuel Weird experience – I have massive problems with this book but I also could not put it down HrmI think that this book succeeds at its smaller scale purpose It’s clear from what she’s said that Willis did massive amounts of research about the Blitz and that she really wanted to make it come alive Which she did She takes this sense of fear and purpose this keep calm and carry on this practicalit
