Came to this via [b:To Say Nothing of the Dog|77773|To Say Nothing of the Dog (Oxford Time Travel, #2)|Connie Willis|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1363105428s/77773.jpg|696]. It's a breezy, fun, and funny read; surprisingly easy to relate to given when it was written. It's episodic and anecdotal in style, and not at all plot-driven. I didn't find it compelling, but it was very entertaining. I especially liked:- the beginning riff on hypochondria- tangled tow lines (that's what happens to my cables I swear)- the vagaries of packing- the uncle's picture hanging disasters.
