Praise

"A stunning novel that encompasses both suffering and hope…. The best work yet from one of science fiction’s best writers."
The Denver Post

"Splendid work — brutal, gripping and genuinely harrowing, the product of diligent research, fine writing and well-honed instincts, that should appeal far beyond the normal science-fiction constituency."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"The world of 1348 burns in the mind’s eye, and every character alive that year is a fully recognized being…. It becomes possible to feel…that Connie Willis did, in fact, over the five years Doomsday Book took her to write, open a window to another world, and that she saw something there."
The Washington Post Book World
