This book as good as advertised – even better than that, because part of it is targeted at people who had their heart broken by Gaudy Night, which I just had two weeks ago. I’m very happy I didn’t accidentally read this one before Gaudy Night, that would’ve ruined the reading experience.

Other than that, To Say Nothing of the Dog also very much shines on its own merits. The dry humour, the direct and indirect quotes, the impeccable research and convoluted-in-a-good-way plot only work because the characters are well built and as usual for Connie Willis everything is real in a quietly frustrating way.


30/ To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis. As good as advertised – even a bit better, it's in part targeted at people who had their heart broken by Gaudy Night, which I read just two weeks earlier. Dry humour, real characters and delightful banter. https://books.rixx.de/reviews/2020/to-say-nothing-of-the-dog/
