The Psychology of Time Travel
The Psychology of Time Travel | Kate Mascarenhas
1967: Four female scientists invent a time-travel machine. They are on the cusp of fame: the pioneers who opened the world to new possibilities. But then one of them suffers a breakdown and puts the whole project in peril... 2017: Ruby knows her beloved Granny Bee was a pioneer, but they never talk about the past. Though time travel is now big business, Bee has never been part of it. Then they receive a message from the future – a newspaper clipping reporting the mysterious death of an elderly lady... 2018: When Odette discovered the body she went into shock. Blood everywhere, bullet wounds, flesh. But when the inquest fails to answer any of her questions, Odette is frustrated. Who is this dead woman that haunts her dreams? And why is everyone determined to cover up her murder?

Great ideas, but not well executed.

All of the main characters were women, and this could have been so good. Sadly, the prose style was so plain as to be dull, and I just did not care about what was going to happen.

DogEaredBooks That‘s a bummer especially with that great cover art too 1mo

I loved this book! How do you deal with the psychology of time travel? The flexibility of concepts of death, predetermination and how the past and future impact each other? Dealing with mental illness, heartbreak, jealousy, grief, revenge… our protagonists learn that there is a whole lot more to jumping through time than just science and paradox. It is an amazing story that will tickle your fancy and tug at your heartstrings.

A murder mystery with time travellers intermingling, maybe interfering is a better word, with the lives of people. The characters are well written and there is intrigue that kept me reading. I liked that the chapters were from different characters, this kept a good pace to thw story. There was something missing though and I haven't quite put my finger on it yet....

Here are a couple of time travel books that I really enjoyed. One is the start to a romance/mystery series. I only read the first book.

The other is a sci-fi time travel book that has a lot of POVs, switches between 2 timelines and is set around a mystery. This is the tagged book and it was really enjoyable!

At the end of the day, I'm glad that I read this. Although I enjoyed the story, there were simply too many plot holes and poorly explained twists for me to wholeheartedly recommend this book to others. I'd call it entertaining, but not great.

Spent the day with my mom and sister today - Mexican food, pedicures, and TJ Maxx (where I got this super cute mug); then went to the LEGO movie with my son and husband. Now it‘s solo chill time with a book and some cinnamon tea (and, though not pictured, Chloe - she‘s on the floor playing with my hair elastic that she stole).

Well, this was pretty awesome! I love the mental gymnastics time travel stories demand of their readers & the not entirely unpleasant sensation of your mind happily boggling away at paradoxes, impossibilities & fantastically plausible concepts. This book has a plethora of female characters, a non gratuitous bittersweet same sex romance, a murder mystery & lashings of engrossing twists & turns. A lot of thought provoking notions about death ⬇️⬇️⬇️

readingjedi Cont. from above...and how time travel renders it virtually obsolete. It wasn't perfect - a few characters seemed underdeveloped & it lacked a truly gut punching denouement. But it hardly mattered. Could Odette go on to be the time travelling detective star of an on going series? That would be fun! 4mo

Traversing the decades and told from alternating perspectives, The Psychology of Time Travel introduces a fabulous new voice in fiction and a new must-read for fans of speculative fiction and is a a mind-bending, time-travel debut.

Murder mystery, time travel, groundbreaking female scientists—I am 120% on board with this book. The beginning dragged a bit—too much announcing that things had happened rather than letting the story unfold. Luckily that faded once the mystery got going and the timelines more convoluted. It's a good and twisty story, with interesting questions about how you might feel about death when you're constantly visiting past and future selves and (con't)

ablachly (con't from initial post).. some brutal answers about what the psychology of time travel actually might amount to. Plus, queer characters. 4mo

Time Travel is a thing, but is it a good thing? And what does it do to those involved? This delves into this concept and explores power, ego, how they end up viewing life and death, and what control do you really have.

The start was a bit rocky, and it really took a bit for me to really get into the story.

Thanks to NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an unbiased review.

👇👇👇

JPeterson I disagree with the main blurb comparing it to Naomi Alderman's The Power and Margot Lee Shetterly‘s Hidden Figures. This just happens to have strong women characters, who have faults and kick-ass, and other women characters that just fade into the background and aren't as well written as they could have been. 5mo

This book was really good. It wasn‘t too heavy and scientific when talking about time travel. So knowing nothing about science, I wasn‘t ever lost. There are a lot of jumping from different point of views and timelines, but I was never lost or confused. The story seemed to flow well even though there was so many alternating timelines. I like how at one point in the story or the other, all the characters were connected.

This woman-led time travel murder mystery has many charms, its exploration of the psychological and (corporate) cultural impacts of time travel, its glossary of time travel slang, its twists and turns, but most of all, this novel has true, red-blooded women at its core, women of diverse color and sexuality capable not only of inventing time travel but of reinvention, regret, revenge, love, sacrifice, cruelty, the running of corporations, and more.

I've had The Psychology of Time Travel on my wishlist since reviews of it started appearing on blogs a while ago. A time travel story populated almost exclusively with women, and it's a mystery to boot? Yes please! I was gripped from the beginning. I especially loved the way in which time travel develops into an industry complete with its own psychometric tests, slang and cliques.

I am so impressed how Kate Mascarenhas wove this story together!!! She incorporated time travel, almost all female characters, and in her story of time travel they can see versions of themselves past or present. She also had characters interact with progeny of the first four women scientists that created time travel. Quick chapters, whodunnit, a lgbqt relationship, some new time travel vernacular...
