For Kivrin, preparing an on-site study of one of the deadliest eras in humanity's history was as simple as receiving inoculations against the diseases of the fourteenth century and inventing an alibi for a woman traveling alone. For her instructors in the twenty-first century, it meant painstaking calculations and careful monitoring of the rendezvous location where Kivrin would be received. But a crisis strangely linking past and future strands Kivrin in a bygone age as her fellows try desperately to rescue her. In a time of superstition and fear, Kivrin -- barely of age herself -- finds she has become an unlikely angel of hope during one of history's darkest hours.… (meer)

    To Say Nothing of the Dog door Connie Willis (amberwitch, Othemts, Patangel)
    amberwitch: A much lighter story set in the same universe.
    Othemts: To Say Nothing of the Dog is a more light-hearted time travel adventure which is sort of a sequel to Doomsday Book. Both are excellent, enjoyable novels.

    Eifelheim door Michael Flynn (Ape)
    Ape: Far from identical stories, but both are sci-fi takes on the black death (Eifelheim: Aliens, Doomsday Book: Time Travel.) There are numerous similarities, and I think if you like one the other might be worth looking into.

    The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England: A Handbook for Visitors to the Fourteenth Century door Ian Mortimer (Sakerfalcon)
    Sakerfalcon: A non-fiction book about everyday life in C14th England, written as though you the reader are there. Kivrin would have found this essential reading to prepare for her journey into the past.

A dry, slow, humorless, illness-focused story involving a lot of people consistently failing to understand one another in normal conversation. Characters who are supposed to be highly educated and quite clever are unable to understand simple statements or make themselves understood using the same. The smartest and most believable character is a 12 year old boy, who acts more realisticly than any of the adults.

I don't enjoy reading descriptions of people who are ill, their symptoms, the methods of caring for them, or the anguish they're experiencing. I find descriptions of young people and children becoming ill and dying especially unpleasant. These made up a significant portion of this book, and they were wearying without adding anything of value to my experience.

There were some questions posed very early on in the story that the characters were fixated on. While the answers were obvious to the reader, the questions were not answered in any satisfying way for the characters until 2/3 of the way through the book, by which time their quest for answers that were painfully obvious to the reader was beyond tedious. Even after the elements of the story have started to come together, it is still depressing, tedious, and myopically focused on illnesses.

I like the idea of a story where the conflict is almost entirely between people and sickness rather than between different people, but this take on it is just too bleak for my tastes. I found the way it wrapped up to be satisfying, just not enough to justify the slog that got me there. ( )

This one surprised me many times, lots of clever bits and humor, but then it settles into some harrowing emotional stuff by the end. ( )

I really love this historical fiction/time travel mashup. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. Curious to see which characters are regulars.

And, ftr, I don't think I'll ever forget that the Black Plague arrived in Great Britain in 1348. ( )
  KittyCunningham | Apr 26, 2021 |
I had read this before, so I knew what was coming. A little hard to read about pandemic's under the current conditions.

I like that Kivrin struggles to understand people in the past. How can we really know how the language sounded in the past? When Prince Arthur and Catherine of Aragon were in engaged they wrote to each other in Latin. Than when she arrived they found they could not understand each other because they had been taught different pronunciations.

Collin was a lot of fun. I loved William Gaddson and his mother. ( )

Winner of 1993 Nebula, Hugo, and Locus awards

Winner of 1993 Nebula, Hugo, and Locus awards
Mr. Dunworthy and his team plan a visit for Kivrin to 1320 that turns out to be 1348 Christmastime – Black Death in Oxford.

Because of an unrelated current-day epidemic that started with Badri the drop operator, the stupid vice-head of medieval closes the lab and won’t let Dunworthy in. Badri is delirious and close to death in hospital so no one knows until the pick-up date is well past that Kivrin is in the wrong year. Everyone in the village she is visiting dies, and she alone is left, bereft, by the time Dunworthy and 12-year-old Colin arrive to rescue her.

Pg74 American visitor to “current-day” Oxford when told to go to another area for safety:
“’Explain! Perhaps you’d like to explain it to me, too. I’m not used to having my civil liberties taken away like this. In America, nobody would dream of telling you where you can’t go.’

And over thirty million Americans died during the [fictional] Pandemic [of 2006?] as a result of that sort of thinking, [Dunworthy] thought.”

Willis published this book in 1993, yet how it sounds exactly like America today! ( )

Motto
"And lest things which should be remembered perish with time and vanish from the memory of those who are to come after us, I, seeing so many evils and the whole world, as it were, placed within the grasp of the Evil One, being myself as if among the dead, I, waiting for death, have put into writing all the things that I have witnessed. And, lest the writing should perish with the writer and the work fail with the laborer, I leave parchment to continue this work, if perchance any man and any of the race of Adam escape this pestilence and carry on the work which I have begun . . . " - Brother John Clyn, 1349
"Opdat niet alles vergeten worde en verloren ga voor hen die na ons komen, heb ik, die zoveel kwaad heb gezien dat de gehele wereld wel in de greep van de Boze lijkt te zijn geraakt, wachtend op mijn dood tussen de doden, alle dingen opgeschreven waarvan ik getuige ben geweest.
En voor het geval dit geschrift tezamen met de schrijver en de arbeid met de arbeider verloren gaat, heb ik perkament achtergelaten ten behoeve van de gelukkige van Adams zaad die deze pestilentie mocht oveleven, om het werk voort te zetten dat door mij is begonnen..."

I'm in a lot of trouble, Mr. Dunworthy. I don't know where I am, and I can't speak the language. Something's gone wrong with the interpreter. I can understand some of what the contemps say, but they can't understand me at all. And that's not the worst of it. I've caught some sort of disease. I don't know what it is.

Boekbeschrijving
De studente Kivrin heeft één grote wens: veldonderzoek doen in de Middeleeuwen. Dat zorgt voor heftige academische ruzie's, want die periode is gevaarlijk. Als haar faculteit uiteindelijk toestemming geeft, heeft ze zich op alle mogelijke manieren voorbereid om de tijdreis te maken.

Maar niets kon Kivrin voorbereiden op de hardvochtige realiteit van een winter in het veertiende-eeuwse Engeland. Het vuil, de stank, de kou. En de geruchten over een ziekte die de steden in zijn greep heeft.

Langzaamaan groeit bij Kivrin het verschrikkelijke vermoeden dat de tijdscoördinaten van haar reis niet kloppen. Dat de onafwendbare naderende plaag niets anders is dan de verschrikkelijke Zwarte Dood...
