“History is just one damned thing after another” - Arnold ToynbeeA madcap new slant on history that seems to be everyone's cup of tea...Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet.Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History. Their aim is to observe and document - to try and find the answers to many of History's unanswered questions...and not to die in the process.But one wrong move and History will fight back - to the death. And, as they soon discover - it's not just History they're fighting.Follow the catastrophe curve from eleventh-century London to World War I, and from the Cretaceous Period to the destruction of the Great Library at Alexandria. For wherever Historians go, chaos is sure to follow in their wake ...

4.0 Just One Damned Thing After Another - Jodi Taylor
It's always interesting to see what a different author does with a familiar concept. I quite enjoyed Taylor's take on time travel, and if I'd had all the stories on hand, no doubt I'd have read them all right then. But I'm under a temporary moratorium on book buying, so the rest will have to wait. T...

3.5 Not a bad little read
Two or so years ago, I read The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis, and absolutely loved it. I've never picked up the sequel, though, even though I think I would like it, because as long as it is out there unread, I know that someday I'll be able to read it, but if I read it then it's done and gone.

3.0 Just One Damned Thing After Another - Jodi Taylor
To be perfectly honest I'm left feeling a bit unsure about how I feel about Just One Damned Thing After Another. It's the first book in a series a couple of people had recommended to me over the past few years, so I thought I'd give it a crack when it was there on Amazon Kindle when it was there for...
