The lives of five people collide: a woman who can read anything, from body language to the shape of a city; a pilot from the future; a spy; a killer; and a head without a body.

Reviews - What do customers think about British Summertime (Gollancz SF)?

More like British Sometime  Sep 19, 2008
This was a unique concept tying time travel, religion, fantasy, science fiction, horror, romance and several other devices into one story. I had fun reading it, but I was disappointed in the number of things he left dangling. I don't mind open ended stories but the lapses in this book didn't seem to be deliberate. There was also a considerable lack of editing.

The ending left Cornell an opening for a sequel. If there is one, I'll pass on it. This was far from the worst I've read recently, but it just didn't live up to its potential.
American Summertime  Jul 22, 2007
Paul Cornell wrote the single best episode of Doctor Who in the entire decades-long history of the program with the two-part episode "Human Nature / the Family of Blood." He's also one of the best of the writers to emerge from the Virgin Books line of Doctor Who novels, and is proving to be an accomplished comic book writer with his recent work for Marvel. British Summertime is one of his two "mainstream" science fiction novels, and it's an absolutely brilliant work. I'm glad to see it making it's US debut now and I hope that US readers are about to discover what a fantastic writer Paul is.
A Favorite  Feb 5, 2007
I came across this book by chance at a used bookstore. I read the description on the back--time travel, angels, seemed interesting, if a bit scattered. I paid maybe $4 for it, and had it for a year before I actually read it.

Once I got past the first few chapters, I was hooked--this book is complicated, and fast-paced. The characters are strong but the story is stronger. I am a fan of modern fantasy and sci-fi that doesn't resemble star trek. Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors. If you like his imagination and complex storylines, like American Gods or Anansi Boys, you will be blown away by this book. It is even more imaginative, even more complex.

This isn't a light read, it takes some getting used to in the beginning, but it all comes together later on. Lots of powerful images, and a touching/tragic love story woven into it as well. I would recommend this to anyone who likes an expansive, surprising story. It does not dissapoint.
