    One thought on “Fire Watch

    1. Peter Derk

      Pretty good book, quick read, all that.The main thing I wanted to talk about is time travel because I really do want to talk about what I want to talk about. That would make a great chorus for a pop country song.What's cool about Connie Willis is that, for my money, she handles time travel well. It's not explained in this story, but I had a kindly office mate explain to me that Connie Willis' other books that take place in the same universe involve something called "slippage." Slippage is the th [...]

    2. Karen

      Interesting story about a time-traveling historian trying to save St. Paul's cathedral during the blitz in London during World War II.

    3. Chris

      Pretty good short that introduced us to the time-traveling historians of Oxford. When comparing this to Blackout/All Clear, you can really see how much Willis has honed her craft over the years.

    4. Veeral

      This novelette which won the both Hugo and Nebula, serves as a good primer to Connie Willis' works.I just read To Say Nothing of the Dog a few days ago, so I thought it would be good to read this novelette before reading Doomsday Book. But my advice to anyone interested in her books would be to start directly with To Say Nothing of the Dog or Doomsday Book. Arguably, these two books could be considered to be her best efforts.

    5. Beth

      Quite possibly the best bit of time-travel fiction I've ever read. 'Scuse me while I devour the rest of the series

    6. Leseparatist

      Very good, but damn if the bit about Russia/Communists (who, you know, bombed places left and right) didn't age. The moment I got to it I knew when it must have been written.

    7. Scott

      I read this after I finished Blackout and All Clear. There are some minor discrepancies but nothing that a little willing suspension of disbelief won't cover up. It was nice to see Kivrin again.I think Connie Willis has it correct. How often have you romanticized about traveling to the past? I never really take into consideration language differences - let alone differences in norms and folkways - in my flights of fancy.I looked up The Battle of Britain on 29. December 1940 on the internet and f [...]

    8. Chris

      A great introduction to Willis' Oxford Time Travel series. A short story, this excursion into WWII concisely introduces the ideas, feeling, and ethic of her approach to "History" in a way that converts her readers, rather than just informing them. Which, of course, is the whole point.

    9. Steve

      I don't know how I would feel about this story if I had never been to St Paul's Cathedral in London. I have, though, and been awestruck. Among other things, this story celebrates the courage and dedication people of the fire watch at St Paul's during World War II. (There is a great photograph of St Paul's surrounded by smoke taken during a German attack on London in 1940. It was taken by Herbert Mason and titled "St Paul's Survives." It can be found on Google under the title of the photograph.)" [...]

    10. Kim Clarke

      Teaser intro to the series, leaving me with a lot of questions that I hope will be answered in subsequent books. 1. When the heck is the present? 2. What happened to Denver? and 3. Why are cats so rare in the future?Possibly the best line in any book ever. "If the kippers set Lord Nelson on fire, I shall be a hero"

    11. Michelle

      Hm. Well, I liked it OK because it is Connie Willis. But I didn't seem to follow or track this one as well? I often felt like I just did not have a handle of what is going on and why. After all the angst about Kivrin going out I just don't see him booting an unprepared guy out? Especially with what HAPPENED to Kivrin. Glad I read it though.

    12. Courtney

      This novelette is a tad more techy than the Oxford Time Travel novels, so more satisfying. There were no annoying children--a plus. Willis's talent sparkles most brightly in her shorter works. I chuckled at several points, not a common occurrence for me with the OTT books.The story is structured kind of like a diary, as we follow Bartholomew on his assignment. It's a very useful frame for a time travel story and the diary-style writing make for a much more intimate view of events.It's apparent t [...]

    13. Luciana Darce

      Pelo que entendi das explicações do Enrique, essa história faz parte do enredo maior pelo qual Connie Willis é mais conhecida, o universo de viajantes do tempo de Doomsday Book (que está previsto para ser lançado em português ainda esse ano e definitivamente vou ler) e To Say Nothing of the Dog.Pelo que entendi, existe uma espécie de liga de historiadores viajantes do tempo e para se formar no grupo, é necessário passar por um teste em que o estudante é lançado em determinada época [...]

    14. Daniel Roy

      I read To Say Nothing of the Dog a few years ago, so Willis' world of time-traveling Oxford historians was already familiar when I began reading Fire Watch. Nevertheless, it's easy to see why this story got Willis so much critical acclaim, and how it spawned a few novels set in the same universe.In a way, Fire Watch is a story about the relationship between historians and History. It's a plea to look at History closer, to remember the human actors who lived through it instead of the statistics a [...]

    15. Suz

      This was my first Willis read, and I quite enjoyed it. It's a story about time travel, and the main character goes back in time to the Blitz and is put on the fire watch for St. Paul's cathedral (for some kind of Time Travel U degree - it's basically his final exam).It was good, Willis handles time travel well. Apparently characters from her novels are in this story, so I will look forward to reading it again after I've read those.I would have probably enjoyed this story more if I hadn't just re [...]

    16. Hillary

      **MILD SPOILERS FOR BLACKOUT/ALL CLEAR**I read this "novelette" after finishing Blackout/All Clear. It's interesting to see how Willis's writing style has evolved since this was first published in 1982. Fire Watch is very much a product of its era, both in its dystopian style and in demonization of communism. (In Blackout/All Clear, the pinpoint bomb is an act of terrorism, and communism isn't mentioned as the motivation.) But it was fun to see how she later included details from this story in A [...]

    17. Josie

      I just finished #1 of the Oxford Time Travel series, after reading #2 and #3. (Fate would just not let me read this series in order!) Before I started on #2 I decided to read a summery of this novella. But when I search for the summery on online I found a link to the actual book at infinityplus/stories. So, I thought why not?It's a quick read. It does not give any special insight to any of the other books or characters. After I read the book I realized that I had heard the story before on a radi [...]

    18. Hilary

      Fire Watch did an excellent job of establishing the Oxford Time Travel series. It did an even better job of bringing home just how terrifying WWII England was, and how largely damaged and broken London was by the experience. Connie Willis does a beautiful job of bringing morality and feeling back into history, and breathing life into the experiences and statistics so commonly touted about. It's chilling and heartbreaking, and makes the rest of the series that much more moving to read.

    19. Karmakosmik

      Questo è stato il mio primo approccio con la scrittrice statunitense, anche se iniziare con un antologia di racconti possa risultare poco significativo. Tuttavia, pur con qualche episodio poco riuscito, la Willis mostra il meglio di sè quando deve risultare o apocalittica (Lost & Found; Letter From The Clearys) o condire la sua fantascienza con toni umoristici (The Fire Watch o Blued Moon).

    20. Clayton Yuen

      A brilliant story line about time travel and human relationships, beautifully written in Connie Willis' style. Often, her repetitive themes are tedious, but she excels in creating a building adventure with an unknown goal. sort of a mystery in time.I give this short story 5 stars for its inventive creative story, Ms Willis' story telling, and the satisfying wrap-up of this long adventure.

    21. Erin

      I read a collection of short stories that included Fire Watch. The eponymous story wasn't that interesting yet other stories made a big impact. All My Darling Daughters was emotionally rough and quite different from the other stories. It will certainly stick with me. My favorites were Samaritan, And Come from Miles Around, and The Sidon in the Corner.

    22. Chris

      I'm sure Connie Willis has a great following and people love her stories. Her writing style just didn't work for me, though. This short story <100 pages long took me about a week to get through. Her writing style just didn't click with me and it made it hard to tread through.

    23. Britt, Book Habitue

      This should really be 1.5, because it takes place after Doomsday Book. Kivrin has already gone back to the past.It was written earlier, though, and there are some discrepancies between it and Doomsday, but it clearly takes place after.Very interesting, though. :)

    24. Jo Oehrlein

      Meant to be read after The Doomsday Book, for certain. Not sure whether it matters whether you read it before Blackout/All Clear or not. It's the same time period as Blackout/All Clear.It's about what it means to be a historian.

    25. Jennww2ns

      I found this to be all around confusing. The premise was intriguing but there just weren't enough background / foundation details for me to understand what was happening on a bigger scale.
