Not being one for Sci-fi I was a bit skeptical about this choice. However, I really enjoyed it since it was just the right amount of time-travelling mixed in with awesome literature references that were totally wrong due to time lag. This book made me laugh because of the comedy of errors. I'm glad I finally found out what the "Bishop's bird stump" was, but I was disappointed that it happened at the end. All in all, not my favorite book of all time, but one I'm glad I had the chance to read.
