Let down by the reading

For God's sake don't try to listen to this if you are British. The reader mispronounces every London placename mentioned (and unfortunately they are key to the story and recur often). I initially thought that he was going for verisimilitude, as the character narrating is American. Then I heard the supposedly English and Scots accents (the latter sounding more like someone born in New Delhi) and realised that this reader just has no business anywhere near a story set in the UK. I couldn't focus on the story because every 15 seconds he threw me out of the narrative by mangling something like 'Balham'.

Love Willis' books

This is classic Willis, but it steps into some different territory. It's a grand read. Enjoy!

Non Science fiction at its best.

Connie Willis is almost never about how we won the rocket war or how we got the space ship up. Her science fiction is an exploration of the heart. This is a lovely read. Not her best but very very good.
You almost have to be British to understand the underground bits. I don't know if the original book came with an underground map, but it would have helped.
