It’s been a few years since I’ve read science fiction and I don’t know why that is since it’s something I enjoy. Historical fiction has become a large part of my reading the last few years and, sadly, it got pushed out. This year I’m trying to read more of it and if the books are half as good as Connie Willis’s To Say Nothing of the Dog, it’s going to be a good science fiction reading year. It’s funny, the time travel element has consequences, and the story is just all around entertaining. Taking place in Victorian England with the main characters running back to the future to make sure their actions haven’t caused any major catastrophes makes for an amusing and silly book that I’m falling for. I’ve heard good things about Willis, and this book in particular, and I can say it’s living up to those starred reviews.

Science fiction is an incredibly rich genre; I hope all your science fiction reads this year are fantastic.
Willis is so wonderful. Very glad to hear you’re enjoying it!
