Recensioni

This book isn't as powerful as "Doomsday Book," Willis' other book involving time travel, but her plotting and research are just as meticulous. In short, the book to me seemed a cross between a serious SF time travel story and a P.G. Wodehouse comedy, with some Agatha Christie thrown in for good measure. I found the explanations of time travel conundrums occasionally confusing, and I think at times they get in the way of a really enjoyable story. Otherwise, a good read.

Francie, unlike everyone else headed to Roswell on the weekend she travels there for a friend's wedding, definitely doesn't believe in UFOs or aliens. Right up until she's abducted by an alien. Then she finds herself trying to understand her new abductor and help him achieve his goal. Along the way, they'll pick up several other people, all with their own secrets but all equally invested in helping this strange alien on his quest.

I've yet to find a Connie Willis novel I didn't enjoy and her newest novel is no exception. The cast of characters is a delight and the vaguely Quixotic journey they go on as they try to assist their alien abductor is fun and funny. A good time for readers who enjoy their sci fi, light on the sci and high on the humour.… (altro)

Incredible book about which I can only say this without spoiling anything--After 500 pages, we really ought to be further along than Act 1 of the story. (That's why this is 4 stars, not 5.)

While the characters and situations are engaging and well-written, they still have not discovered what is affecting time travel or their immediate situations.

There's my growing irritation that the story arc will not be as strong as DOMESDAY BOOK as there's way too much buildup that has to be resolved within the same number of pages in ALL CLEAR.

I really enjoyed this, but don't want the complete story (BLACKOUT ALL CLEAR) to have that rushed and clumsy story arc like a Star Trek Next Generation episode (intriguing idea, good buildup, Act 2 twist, and then everything resolved (sorta) in less than 10 minutes).

3.5 rounded up for an audiobook narrator that I enjoyed. Maybe try another more SF title by this author.
