When I think science fiction, I don't often relate it humor Connie Willis, however, has changed my mind. To Say Nothing of the Dog is a funny, laugh out loud kind of book. Ned's sardonic narrative style and his interaction with Verity (which is an AWESOME name by the way) are what make this book so funny and so readable. The plot itself is interesting, and it really is counter to what I think of as typical time travel narrative, like Wells The Time Machine for example. But Willis makes time travel seem fun. Although, after reading about Ned and Verity's experiences in the Victorian era, I don't think I'd want to live there--or even visit.
