Review: All Our Wrong Todays

All Our Wrong Todays All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It should be noted, before we go any further, that I'm a sucker for time travel novels.

With that out of the way, here is one of the latest in the genre, All Our Wrong Todays, which has a premise where the timelines are screwed up once someone goes back to a time and messes with the event that introduces massive technological change in the world. Quickly, it becomes a story about alternating timelines and advanced technology and what have you.

On the merits, I give it a 5. On the overall, though, there's a lot wrong with the way this races to the finish line and gets a little too confusing. Also, the structure of the book itself is unique but often frustrating in that chapters are 2-3 pages each and create a sort of disjointed narrative that, while likely intentional, took me out more than I wanted it to.

Overall, though, high marks for this one. A lot of fun in spite of the few flaws, and ultimately a good time.
