Not A Review: Blackout by Connie Willis

Hi there, I just finished reading Blackout by Connie Willis, and usually that would mean my posting a review and trying to convince you to read it.  However, Blackout is the first part of a two part story that is concluded in All Clear, so I don't feel like I can really give the book justice, not knowing how the story ends.  So, I'm going to wait until I have read All Clear to tell you about both.

For now, let me tell you that this is well-written, compelling, and interesting, despite the fact that this is the first book in the time travelling Oxfordian set where the present is completely absent (see what I did there?) from the narrative further than when the last person travels back in time.  Oh, that's another thing we haven't seen before - Blackout follows more than one time traveller.  And it's set during World War II - which seems to be Willis' favoute time period.  But this is all I will say for now!
