I am usually a little suspicious of time travel stories. Growing up, I devoured Doctor Who and Back to the Future, and this has given me an (overblown and very annoying to everyone I am watching TV with) sense of time travel tropes. If the 'science' doesn't work for me, then I get a bit huffy and I don't enjoy it. I loved this book. It reads like a less po-faced version of Connie Willis. Fun, with great pacing and a real eye for the Dickensian levels of academic poverty you get in British Higher Education, it makes time travel fun. This is a great, light-hearted read similar in style to John Scalzi. I look forward to reading more!
