Definitely the most entertaining time travel book I've ever read - the witty, comedy-of-errors of Oscar Wilde mixed with complex, intellectual time travel genius. Willis ties up every loose end, answers every unanswered question, and leaves no paradox...animal lovers will especially love this one.

I'm glad someone convinced me to finally read this, because it really is a great read--and I had no idea a gag about a dog (there's also an important cat) could be stretched so far and to such great amusement. This turned out to be one of those books I just wanted to keep reading and reading; I'd finish one chapter and think "oh, just one more!" I loved the dry humor--so many times an amusing turn of phrase or allusion was just tossed in, waiting for me to either notice and get it or not. Time travel is not a concept that particularly interests me, but in this book, time travel itself is not really the point. It's a device that plays an important part in the story, but it's simply the starting point for a fun and complicated adventure that weaves together history, literature, poetry, mystery conventions, and romance.

Such a zany book, I really enjoyed it and had some laugh out loud moments. I loved Cyril and Princess Arjumand!

FABULOUS and fun read! Some time travel, some romance, great tales of Victorian England. I loved this book. If you read it, I suggest also picking up "Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog)" by J.K. Jerome.

Fun time travel romp. The humor and British settings remind me a bit of Douglas Adams.
