It's another Oxford time travel book, this time to the Victorian era (with side trips to Coventry during the Blitz), but it's a light comedy rather than the tragedy of the Doomsday Book. It takes it's title from Jerome K. Jerome's comedy about a trip down the Thames Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog).

One of my favorite books in any form.
I plan to try reading that one since my library has the ebook and I don't have it as an audiobook yet.

I also loved the disclaimer by Connie at the beginning of All Clear -- "If you haven't read Blackout yet, you need to stop listening to this right now!"

Made me smile
Maybe a different narrator will help. *fingers crossed*

To Say Nothing of the Dog narrated by Steven Crossley is very good, too, but I really fell in love with the characters of Blackout/All Clear.
Maybe different characters will help too, I didn't care for or about Kivrin in The Doomsday Book.
