The reviewer who said the characters' self recriminations about whether their actions changed history hit it dead on. I found myself angry with the characters because they couldn't just get on with it.

The ideas the characters had about time travel and affecting outcome were ridiculous. I don't want to rant about the details here but I found myself wanting to go online somewhere to rant about it and get it out of my system instead of yelling at my car stereo.
Doomsday Book I enjoyed, but Blackout and All Clear, though they had the potential to be great were brought down by the tediousness of the characters thoughts. Did I have to sit through five minutes of one character wondering why another was late? Or assuming that because the all-clear sounded too early that meant the war was lost?
