Connie Willis' Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Doomsday Book uses time travel for a serious look at how people connect with each other. In this Hugo-winning companion to that novel, she offers a completely different kind of time travel adventure: a delightful romantic comedy that pays hilarious homage to Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat.

When too many jumps back to 1940 leave 21st century Oxford history student Ned Henry exhausted, a relaxing trip to Victorian England seems the perfect solution. But complexities like recalcitrant rowboats, missing cats, and love at first sight make Ned's holiday anything but restful - to say nothing of the way hideous pieces of Victorian art can jeopardize the entire course of history.

Delightfully aided by the perfect comedic timing of narrator Steven Crossley, To Say Nothing of the Dog shows once again why Connie Willis is one of the most talented writers working today. Download and start listening now!

    " A funny book which really is funny. There's a story too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louis | 6/27/2011

    " This was between a 3 and 4, a coin flip made it the lower number. Is that fair? It's what it is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 6/24/2011

    " Enjoyed very much! will look for more of her books. I also have Three Men in a Boat, Jerome K Jerome
    which this books references. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 6/22/2011

    " Time traveling -- some good parts of the story but I got lost in the going back and forth. Interesting writing style, though, so I probably will check her other books out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Poetreehugger | 6/21/2011

    " Great fun to read. Time travel, Victorian romance, detective themes, and speculation on the nature of free will thrown in just for fun! I can't wait to read more by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 mstan | 6/20/2011

    " This unexpected science fiction novel (set in the Victorian period!) promised a lot of cleverness and humour at the beginning, but I do find 493 pages of bishop-bird-stump-hunting and discussions of incongruities a little trying on the less-than-completely-irreverent soul. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 6/15/2011

    " Funny, enjoyable. To say nothing of the dog. I will look for more by this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mari | 6/12/2011

    " One of my favorite books ever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean | 6/10/2011

    " Hysterically funny and so brilliant it dazzles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 6/8/2011

    " This was my first Connie Willis book. I really enjoyed the characters and the humor, although I was getting quite ready for a resolution by the end of it. Lots of witty banter and fun time travel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelsey | 6/7/2011

    " Easily one of my top books featuring time travel, only possibly beat out by other Connie Willis books featuring time travel. It's sort of like a Victorian murder mystery, only with less murder and more cats. Well paced, impeccably researched (as usual for Willis)and really quite funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 N | 6/7/2011

    " The incredible thing is that Willis takes the same main idea from her Doomsday Book, a dramatic piece with hints of comedy, and turns it into a total farce here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 5/30/2011

    " Wonderfully silly and intricate. Packed to the brim with literary and historical references(most of which fly over my head). Very funny and also, romantic! Impossible to put in a genre. Victorian Slapstick Sci-fi? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gerald | 5/23/2011

    " For too many pages into this book, I was wondering, "What is a bishop's bird stump and why should I care?" "
