Book Review: All Clear
Reviewed by Lauryn DesChamps
This book is the sequel to a previous novel Willis wrote entitled Blackout. This science fiction novel was written to continue and conclude the story that started in the previous novel.
Polly, Mike, and Eileen are historians from the year 2060 who are stuck in the year 1941. Their "drops" to get back to 2060 will not open, and, now, their only hope is to find another historian to send a message to the retrieval team in 2060. However, they cannot find anyone. They fear that by coming in contact with many people and by saving a few people’s lives, they may have altered the course of history. In order for history to be the way it is supposed to be, the space-time continuum needs to fix itself, which could be bad news for the historians. What will time decide?
All Clear by Connie Willis is a great sequel to her first novel Blackout. I love all stories that involve World War II, which makes this the perfect book for me. This book is a solid 10 out of 10. I could not have chosen a better book.
