The Middle Ages are a shady back alley of history They are a juvenile delinuent to which all the proper historical eras give the proverbial side eye Life expectancy in 1300 was thirty eight years he had told her when she first said she wanted to go to the Middle Ages and you only lived that long if you survived cholera and smallpox and blood poisoning and if you didn t eat rotten meat or drink polluted water or get trampled by a horse Or get burned at the stake for witchcraft And yet despite the filth the ignorance the ever present dangers the rats and the Plague the dreaded Black Death that wiped out a third to a half of Europe a young Oxford history student Kivrin Engle gets her way to be sent to the Middle Ages for a few weeks of full immersion research armed with nothing else but a voice recorder to create her own version of the Domesday Book an account of what it was to live in those times She s seven hundred years from home Dunworthy thought in a century that didn t value women enough to even list their names when they died Nothing could go wrong on this carefully planned time travel of course well except for nothing going as expected the sudden severe illness the incomprehensible language that apparently was very different from what we thought Middle English was supposed to be like the inability to find the place from which she is supposed to be transported back into the present Oh and a slight mistake that happened during her time travel the mistake Kivrin is unaware of the one that resulted in her arriving not in the relatively boring 1320 but in a slightly eventful 1348 the year the Black Death made in appearance in England People who have the plague don t wonder if they have it They re too busy dying Nothing she thought There s nothing you can do It swept through village after village killing whole families whole towns One third to one half of Europe Despite what textbooks have you believe history is not only about the columns of dates the battles the pivotal events and the decisions made by those in power History is about people and even though everything around them may change over hundreds of years people remain the same in their essential humanity They ve all died she thought and couldn t make herself believe it They ve all been dead over seven hundred years And that s how Doomsday Book packs such a powerful emotional punch with the sci fi time travel story turned historical observation turned historical tragedy Because Connie Willis makes you the reader slowly inhabit the world she imagines and come to care about the people she creates To me the bunch of characters in the story of the Middle Ages slowly became people with realistic flaws and strengths with motivations and desires that are colored by the gap of seven hundred years and yet so relatable in their humanity and with lives unfolding along their own trajectories until an unstoppable force of nature rolls over them leading to a tragedy grief stricken Kivrin can best compare to The slaughter of the innocents Through the strength of Willis writing they come to life reflecting history the way it unfolds through the stories of people who live that history strands blending together to create a broad tapestry Kneeling on St Mary s stone floor she had envisioned the candles and the cold but not Lady Imeyne waiting for Roche to make a mistake in the mass not Eliwys or Gawyn or Rosemund Not Father Roche with his cutthroat s face and worn out hoseShe could never in a hundred years in seven hundred and thirty four years have imagined Agnes with her puppy and her naughty tantrums and her infected knee I m glad I came she thought In spite of everything The trivial concerns the petty suabbles the bloated righteous selfishness all of this disappears once the horror strikes and it s the last third of the book that becomes so powerful as we through the eyes of Kivrin see the tragedy that cannot be stopped see the people who rise above the everyday pettiness and become heroes when necessity calls And as Kivrin at first almost mantra like hopefully and then with the tired and angry resentment recalls the percentages that perished in the Black Death onslaught the realization hits it does not matter whether everyone died or some survived because they all every single one the brave and the weak and the innocent and the scheming and the petty and the evil and the stupid and the saint like they all mattered all of them every single one frightened and brave and irreplaceable I wanted to come and if I hadn t they would have been all alone and nobody would have ever known how frightened and brave and irreplaceable they were This bell as we all know tolls for you tolls for all of us And yet I know this book was not nearly perfect despite my sincere love for it I see where those who found this book unpalatable come from There is a reason why after devouring this book twice in a month I reread it again but only half this time skipping all the modern day chapters and instead choosing to remain in the Middle Ages with Kivrin Because yes the present day parts have flaws that stand out like a sore thumb The endless scrambling around to get a hold of someone just to figure out that the landlines are not working properly The characters inserted for little but comic relief The seriously stretched parallels to the things Kivrin experiences in the Middle Ages The most annoying child character since that kid in the second Indiana Jones film Colin you make me go into a near murderous rage every time your necrotic whine

review Doomsday Book Doomsday Book review ☆ 5 review Ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free × Connie Willis ?n değil tarihi roman hayranlarının da beğeniyle okuyacağı sürükleyici bir öykü Zamanda yolculuk yapıp 1348 yılına İngiltere'deki Kara Veba salgınının tam ortasına giden Kivrin'in macerası insanlığın hem geçmişi hem de geleceği üzerine yazılmış en güzel metinlerden bi. I finished Doomsday Book this morning and immediately moved on to the next book on my to read list which happens to be Hyperion by Dan Simmons Doomsday Book left me a little messed up in the head and I wanted to replace the imagery and train of thought with something new I figured I d have to let Doomsday Book mull around in my head for a while before I could write an effective review I figured the same about Iain Banks Transition another book I recently finished So my plan was to read Hyperion then come back and write thoughtful reviews of all threeBut I can t stop thinking about Doomsday Book I can t get the images out of my head I can t get the train of thought out of my head I can t stop my throat from tightening or my jaw from clenching In other words a little messed up hardly describes how Connie Willis has left me A better description would be pretty fucked upI don t know what Doomsday Book was about to all of you I can see how different people would take different lessons themes or morals from this book I just know what it was about for me a crisis of faith Some authors have an uncanny ability to meet us where we re at to take longstanding human themes and make them once again relevant to what the reader is going through in his or her life Connie Willis certainly did so for meI have been going through my own crisis of faith over the last year or so I have been a believer in and follower of Jesus Christ for as long as I can remember and although my faith has been challenged and wavered at various points in my life I have been spiritually pretty steady But never have I experienced so much doubt as I have over the last year2009 began with such hope in my life I seemed on the road to recovering from a chronic nervous system disorder that causes constant pain my wife and I seemed poised to renew and repair our relationship and get back to a loving marriage and we seemed finally to be obtaining long worked for financial stability But I now look back on 2009 as the most difficult year I have endured My physical condition deteriorated substantially I ve written some of my frustration on this subject in another review my marriage hit rock bottom fortunately we are getting back on track following a new year s resolution to forgive one another for the past and start loving one another for the future my wife got laid off and I took a 15% pay cut there is still no light at the end of that tunnel But that was nothing and here s the most obvious parallel to Doomsday Book my family witnessed death and suffering seemingly everywhere we looked People we care about God fearing people genuine Good People are going through some really Bad Shit It began with my wife s close friend dying in childbirth Kelly was 28 years old healthy happily married and full of joy to be pregnant with her first child Her doctor fucked up and mother and child died Then came 10 year old Destiny a student in my wife s 5th grade classroom She was a delightful and intelligent girl Conscientious caring hard working and kind to everyone she knew Destiny was kind and helpful to my kids She was smart and ambitious and had a wonderful life ahead of her She was one of the kids that made all the crap worth it for my wife Then Destiny got in a car driven by her mother s drunk boyfriend Destiny had been talking about how the next week she was going to demand that she be allowed to live with her father so she could get away from the jackass who beat her mother If only she had gotten out a week sooner The drunk woman beating piece of shit was driving twice the speed limit on a country road near our house slammed into a ditch and flipped the car several times Destiny died at the scene Next it was my co worker Diane who sits a few offices down the hall from me The air was thick with her palpable desperation and grief when she got the phone call no parent should ever have to take her son had committed suicide As if that weren t enough another student died from cancer but that seemed somehow like just a cruel afterthought since he had been sick for months and nobody expected him to surviveWhere was God in my life last year Where was God when I prayed for physical and relational healing Where was God when Kelly was about to give birth to a beautiful baby girl Where was God when Destiny needed deliverance from an abusive household Where was God when Diane s son needed His love and comfortIt will be several years before I fully recover from the pain both experienced and witnessed that cut a swath through my life in 2009 Spiritually I don t know that I will or can My cries for help went unheeded and my prayers for healing unanswered God abandoned Good People who needed Him He stood by and watchedAnd it hit home for the first time in my life that what I experienced and witnessed in 2009 was nothing uniue or even rare I was forced to confront the reality that I had lived a cushy life while people suffered and grieved all around me even right here in the good ol U S of A and that 2009 was simply my turn at the table So I started to uestion where was God during all the years when I was living easy while Good People experienced Bad Shit down the street and in the next town and across the border How could I have sat and so smugly thanked God for the blessings in my life without at least wondering why God was allowing such suffering in other peoples lives Doomsday Book made the Black Plague real for me Willis took me there and made me love the people of that little village in Oxfordshire Then she made me watch them die one by one in the most horrifying way possible She made that shit real And the thing is it was real The village and characters in Doomsday Book might have been fictional but there were thousands of real villages and millions of real people who weren t all that different and who died those deaths for real seven hundred years ago Of course they wondered where God was Of course they thought God had abandoned them I am having a crisis of faith because of 2009 I can t imagine the crisis of faith people must have felt in 1349And now that I think about it shouldn t the reality of 1349 cause a crisis of faith in all of us We weren t there but real people were It s pure blind dumb luck that you and I were born in the 20th century instead of the 14th century Those people were just as frightened and brave and irreplaceable in Kivrin s words as we are And many of the people in 1349 had a faith that those of us in 21st century America can t shake a stick at Those people believed the spiritual world was real and tangible and affected their daily lives They had no doubt that God was real and that He intervened in the physical world Yet God abandoned them God set a new mark for ditching the Faithful in time of greatest needIf God couldn t be bothered to spare good faithful people from the Black Death how can he be bothered to intervene in our cushy little insignificant livesAnd so my crisis of faith is uickly becoming a Crisis of Faith In case you re wondering no I don t blame Connie Willis Doomsday Book simply catalyzed my thought processes along their already natural progressions If anything I m glad I read Doomsday Book when I did because I think I got the most that I can get out of it But I am left wondering where I go from here I think I just need time Time for things to sink in Time to put 2009 in context and perspective Time to do therapeutic things like writing this review I don t know where I ll end up but I know I must walk down this path Will Mr Dunworthy be waiting at the drop Will Badri be well enough to open the net Will Colin have any energy left to make it all happen We ll see جواهر البخاري و شرح القسطلاني yolculuk
