To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
An elusive Victorian gewgaw draws a time-traveling historian into the slippery nets of history, and the fate of the universe may turn on a drowned cat, a woman's indecipherable diary, an unknown Mr. C, and the bombed-out church at Coventry - to say nothing of the bulldog. Anyone who loves Agatha Christie's puzzles, P.G. Wodehouse's starchy butlers and silly gentlefolk, or Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat will appreciate this cheerful romp.
