Blackout I have to spoil this from the beginning- there will be a sequel . This is one of those unputdownable books that you stay up late to read and then think about calling in sick to work to finish! For those who love The Time Machine, Time Traveler's Wife or the Outlander series then Connie Willis is for you. Historians in 2060 are graduate students who learn by observing actual historical events firsthand- not from written accounts. You pick your time slot, work out a good drop with your professor , head to wardrobe etc and are then plopped into another time.... World War II England. This is life for a handful of historians until something goes amiss. They drop into this period and try to blend in and above all else- DO NOT ALTER HISTORY. I was in love until I got to the last page and found out I have to wait until September for the next book.
Blackout could be the perfect choice for historical fiction, science fiction or Dan Brown lover.
It would even be a great pick for teens!
