    For Oxford student Kivrin, traveling back to the 14th century is more than the culmination of her studies - it's the chance for a wonderful adventure. For Dunworthy, her mentor, it is cause for intense worry about the thousands of things that could go wrong.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I thought this would be a good listen for a time travel story but did not find this interesting at all. The characters were not believable. The pace of each characters was not interesting and the science of it was lacking. I wish I would have enjoyed this book much better but their are other time travel stories far better..such as Timeline.


    Has Doomsday Book turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    What didn’t you like about Jenny Sterlin’s performance?

    To lacking of enthusiasm


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was a time travel book, Disappointed that in didn't talk about more of the science and the history of the plague
