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.

    Blackout door Connie Willis (bell7)
    bell7: Some characters return in this story, set in 1944 England, and involving similar themes of how people react in a crisis.

    Year of Wonders door Geraldine Brooks (labfs39)
  4. 102
    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.
  5. 70
    The Time Traveller'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.

Not a hit for me. Boring characters in the modern timeline and pretty obvious danger in past timeline ( )
  The_Literary_Jedi | Aug 13, 2022 |
What can I say about this book apart from the fact that it has something in it that most every reader will enjoy, and that this is the book that started my love of this particular Author. I had a copy of this lent to me whilst I was laid up with pneumonia, and a friend asked me if I had ever read anything written by the Author; little did they know then that by introducing me to them they would be creating a monster.

There are many characters in this novel, both futuristic and from the past, and the main protagonist is a gripping female student who time travels back to the 1300’s. The way in which this character copes with a time so at odds to her own, with so many restrictions when it comes to women is what makes her a person I immediately could connect with. Throw into the mix the issue of the Black Death and this makes her even more compelling. Throughout the novel the reader can follow her progress as she comes to terms with the times she now finds herself in and can root for her every step of the way. Her determination and courage shines through as the times degenerate into one of sickness and death. The Author is equally generous when introducing their other characters in this book, although there were a few that I thought were rather superfluous to the plot itself; there is the concerned and overworked professor who I felt was the very picture of the stereotypical academic, and also the ‘mother hen’ type character who fussed over everyone and anyone. I didn’t find any of the characters unlikeable, and this rather surprised me as there is usually one that I would like to meet a miserable demise.

When it comes to location descriptions and really setting the mood for the 1300’s it is apparent that the Author did a great deal of research into the time period, and the effects the Black Death had on families and attitudes of that time. Unfortunately the editing was not as tight as I would have expected in a novel as gripping and fast paced as this one, and this is the reason for the four thumbs rating. Overall though this is a well written and entertaining book, that keeps the reader turning the pages to the very end.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a great story and/or is interested in historical fiction, sci-fi and fantasy.

2022 Book #29. 1992. A young historian is sent into the past to learn about pre-plague Oxford. Unfortunately something goes wrong and she ends up in the plague. Interesting time travel story with enough British witticism to make it very enjoyable. ( )

This is my all time favorite time travel story. Connie Willis was a master writer, far under recognized, in my opinion.

Set in contemporary Oxford, England, an academic program is testing targeted time travel for archeological purposes.

It's been a while since I've read the book but many images and feelings remain with me. The contrast between a modern day Oxford Christmas and a medieval country chapel are staggering.

Willis's ability to invest you in her characters is uncanny. I remember finishing the book and practically having to find a barometric chamber in which to decompress.

Doomsday Book is a tour de force in historical science fiction, full of life, tragedy and humor. Do not assume this book is too old to read, you will miss a masterpiece. ( )

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.

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.

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...
