I am conflicted about this book. It is the second half of the story that began with Blackout, and begins abruptly where Blackout left of.

It's so rambling - the tension built up in Blackout is kind of lost for me because of the endless chapters from every character's point of view (and each character being called whichever name they're using for that particular time period, which can make things confusing) - they worry endlessly over the possible meaning of the fact that they cannot return to their time, but it went on a little too long. The historical detail though is amazing, and the picture that Willis creates of wartime England is just incredible. And that makes up for much rambling.

I would like to re-read these in a year or so, one after the other, so I can get a better sense of the story as a whole - it's difficult reading them with six months apart.
