Product Description

Review

“Enthralling . . . a story so packed with thrills, comedy, drama and a bit of red herring that the result is apt to satisfy the most discriminating, and hungry, reader.”—The Denver Post

“[Connie] Willis can tell a story like no other. . . . One of her specialties is sparkling, rapid-fire dialogue; another, suspenseful plotting; and yet another, dramatic scenes so fierce that they burn like after-images in the reader’s memory.”—The Village Voice

“Ambitious, and moving . . . with a lovely twist at the end.”—The San Diego Union-Tribune
 
“[Willis’s] re-creation of wartime England is meticulous, energetic and exhaustive.”—The Wall Street Journal
 
“[A] tour de force.”—The Charlotte Observer

THANK YOU AGAIN CONNIE WILLIS....

The story continues and part 2 is just rewarding as part 1. I loved "Blackout" (Please see my review of Blackout) and I love part 2 "All Clear" just as much. Never have I read a book, which is so vivid that it make you feel as if you are really there, that you are experience everything the wonderful characters are experiencing. So many emotions are experienced when reading these two books. The historical knowledge that the reader gains is also valuable. I only wish these two books/one story, could have continued. Really they couldn't be long enough for my liking! Every moment experience in this story is interesting and believable. The great characters are solid and also quite believable. Their experience during WW2 were so real and moving in this book, I felt as if I was there with them. It made me want to learn more about peoples experience and the effect of WW2 had on those involved. My parents lived thru the war and my father lived in East London and experienced the Blitz. His home was hit twice by bombs. This book really made me understand what they and others really went through during this war.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read and reviewed Connie Willis' Blackout back in March; finally, the second half of the story arrives in the form of All Clear, a 600+ page-turner that picks up immediately after Blackout left off. We again encounter time traveling historians, Polly, Eileen and Mike as they struggle to make it through the Blitz in London while at the same time attempting to avoid doing anything that might change the course of history, i.e., cause the Allies to lose the war. When Mr. Dunworthy, head of the historians in 2060 Oxford, also turns up in the Blitz and is also stranded there, the temptation to give way to despair is almost overwhelming, but Polly thinks there might be another way to look at events....Once again, Connie Willis pulls off a very complex story, with chapters set in a variety of times (1940, 1944, 1995, 2060), and at the same time makes the reader care deeply for each individual character. At times, I felt the story to be a comedy of errors with people continuously just missing each other, and at other times I was very glad to have a box of tissues at hand, because there was so much grief going on. You cannot read this book without having read Blackout first, since they are really just one book that's been broken up into two volumes due to considerations of length; and I would very strongly recommend that both books be read back-to-back because I found the 7-month gap between the time I read the first "half" and the second meant that there were certain scenes and incidents from the first that I'd forgotten by the time All Clear arrived at my house. That quibble aside, this is a masterpiece of storytelling, and Connie Willis once again shows why she is one of the foremost writers working today. Very highly recommended!

Format: Hardcover
I read this because having ploughed through the Blackout volume I needed to know how it was all resolved. Excellent writing and accurate history ... but, too long by far. There is just too much repetition of detail, once we have been from A to B on the underground we know how the system works, once we have sheltered from the bombs we know how that panned ut too but the book repeats and repeats small details that really only have to be written about once. Enjoyable, I like her work, but some serious editing would have helped this one.

Her earlier time travel book, To Say Nothing of the Dog, was better. A gem in fact.
