All Our Wrong Todays
All Our Wrong Todays | Elan Mastai
There's no such thing as the life you're "supposed" to have... You know the future that people in the 1950s imagined we d have? Well, it happened. In Tom Barren s 2016, humanity thrives in a techno-utopian paradise of flying cars, moving sidewalks, and moon bases, where avocados never go bad and punk rock never existed . . . because it wasn t necessary. Except Tom just can t seem to find his place in this dazzling, idealistic world, and that s "before" his life gets turned upside down. Utterly blindsided by an accident of fate, Tom makes a rash decision that drastically changes not only his own life but the very fabric of the universe itself. In a time-travel mishap, Tom finds himself stranded in our 2016, what we think of as the real world. For Tom, our normal reality seems like a dystopian wasteland. But when he discovers wonderfully unexpected versions of his family, his career, and maybe, just maybe his soul mate, Tom has a decision to make. Does he fix the flow of history, bringing his utopian universe back into existence, or does he try to forge a new life in our messy, unpredictable reality? Tom s search for the answer takes him across countries, continents, and timelines in a quest to figure out, finally, who he really is and what his future our future is supposed to be. "All Our Wrong Todays" is about the versions of ourselves that we shed and grow into over time. It is a story of friendship and family, of unexpected journeys and alternate paths, and of love in its multitude of forms. Filled with humor and heart, and saturated with insight and intelligence and a mind-bending talent for invention, this novel signals the arrival of a major talent."

I would recommend the tagged book… and I would go back in time and have conversations with my dad and my brother that I wish I‘d had before they died.

If you‘re reading this, consider yourself tagged.

A clever and entertaining story about time travel and its long lasting effects on people, relationships and the entire world. While a little hard to follow at times, I enjoyed it immensely, even if it could have been trimmed down a bit for clarity. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #DoubleSpin

I love a sci fi novel with good time travel elements that are easy to understand. This one was adventurous and quite philosophical at the same time. The main character was endearingly screwed up. Though it did seem a bit rushed at the end, the overall feel was creative and contemplative and very enjoyable.

Karisa Ooh, I love time travel books too. . . Thanks! 1y

It took me a little to get into this book, but once I did I really enjoyed it. I appreciated how the author thought through a lot of typical time travel discrepancies and had them make sense. I'll be sending this back to you @cobwebmoth once I pick out some fun things to go with. @ReadingRover do you still have my book? @Avanders #SFMBC

I liked this book, although it didn't happen until 1/3 of the way in! I read some great Litsy reviews and added it and thought it'd be an instant love-at-first-page kind of thing. I was turned off the main character at first though. He goes through a lot of changes and becomes much more of a likeable guy after a while.
This is about time travel. It's also about life, love, and what makes us who we are.
4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Another booked based in my city. What's this one about? Family? Expectations of the world around us? Loss and pain? Life and love? Yes, but mostly it's about " there's no such thing as a life you're supposed to have" Oh and time travel. So good.

Time-travel, love, the meaning of life, and what could happen if just one minor thing has altered in a time line? I kind of enjoyed the parts where Tom/John discovers love and a functional family, but the rest simply throws us for too many loops. Time loops, navel-gazing, too many causalities and paradoxes, and self-reference loops. The idea would have made a great short story, but at 384 pages it is more like a bloated headache. ⭐️⭐️

HeatherBookNerd I loved that book! 😂 the audiobook is terrific. 3y
Gezemice @HeatherBookNerd I listened to it. There were parts that I really liked but he went around in too many circles so it never came together for me. 3y
MaleficentBookDragon I did not like it either. Great idea but I did not enjoy the execution of it. And it felt really sexist to me at times. 3y
Gezemice @MaleficentBookDragon Yeah, I agree. Good idea, bad execution. And yeah, it was cringeworthy at times. 3y

At first, I felt super conflicted about ALL OUR WRONG TODAYS. It was seriously fun--but it leaned into lots of gross tropes re: Unexceptional Dudes Who Make Good. Ugh.

As the book rolls along, though, it acknowledges and interrogates those tropes, allowing me to love the hell out of its time travel shenanigans, its family issues, and how it considers the ways we shape our worlds. The climax was a bit of a let-down, but it still gets 4.5 stars.

I just wasted a substantial portion of my life making the world's most boring soup. The recipe came from CUT THE SUGAR by Ella Leché, a "healthy food" cookbook that I now suspect is aimed at people who straight up hate flavour. The lack of spices should've clued me in.

I almost salvaged the broth by adding a bunch of Cajun seasoning. The vegetables, I fear, mostly just taste Boiled. Capitalization necessary. #audiocooking

BookHoarder32 Oh no! 😱 lol 3y
xicanti @BookHoarder32 I had another recipe marked off, but there's no way I'm making anything else from this book. Thank goodness the vegetables were pretty cheap. 3y
BookHoarder32 That's too bad that healthy equals no flavor. My sister always tells me to add garlic to things (for a healthy flavor alternative) 3y

I made some #audiopuzzling progress, but it's still gonna be a long road ahead.

I'm a little torn on this book. On the one hand, it's really cool. On the other, the protagonist does Creepy Dude Stuff like falling in "love" with a superawesome woman he barely knows, who I'm pretty sure will be forced to surrender some of her superawesomeness in service to his story. Gross.

@AthenaWins recommended this to me forever ago and I finally got to it. A fun, quick listen and another book about grief and parents...is every book about parents or is that just a thing I keep picking up? I liked I lot of what Mastai was working with...how we become who we are, grief, shame, also there's time travel. Sidenote, we know about nostalgia but what would a comforting but ultimately false yearning toward the future be called?

AthenaWins I'm so glad you liked it! Definitely one of those books I'll return to again and again. 4y

So I have come to realize that I quite enjoy books about time travel. This explores what could happen if you change the past but it ends up being so much more than that. I know a lot of people found this book to be so-so, and some parts dragged on for far too inf, but overall I really did enjoy it. #audiobook #scribd #timetravel

Is traveling through time actually a good idea? If you already messed up the first time, would you do it again?
I liked the idea behind this book and there were moments when I was really into it, but I don't know, something was off.
Mainly I couldn't connect 100% with the main character and having the story told from his first person perspective didn't help.
🌟 🌟.5 for me.

I didn't like it. It wasn't the worst thing I've ever read, but the worst for this year. I liked the science (sort of) and I thought it had potential. But... the sexism irritated me to no end, I really disliked the main character, and I just wanted it to end.

Listened to the audiobook and it was amazing. The author narrates and he is sheer perfection. This wildly inventive time travel story is equal parts brainy nerd-fest and total emotional drama. The book takes so many unexpected turns and I could not wait to see what was coming next. LOVED IT.

This is an interesting take on dystopian/speculative fiction where THIS world is the dystopia.

I truly enjoyed this book until the very end. I wound up skimming the last few chapters. Other nit-picky things, didn't like the MC, and the chapters were ridiculously short which made it all to easy to put the book down.

While I was reading it though, I truly enjoyed the story. The book did not resolveitself the way I hoped/expected it would.

#ReadingResolutions #day4 #CoverLove Publishers have really upped their cover design recently.They‘ve not only made the dustjackets gorgeous with colors,texture & intricate art,there‘s also stained edges & surprises under the jacket on the naked book.It‘s so hard to pick a favorite! The Library At Mount Char(bottom middle)is my usual top runner but Foxlowe(bottom left)is very close, plus the holo on The Wicked Deep(top middle)is amazing too.

I'm a sucker for time travel books. This one got off to a fantastic start, but really went downhill at the end. The end got really convoluted, and had too many moments of "and suddenly I understood everything about [some character he didn't like]" where the reader didn't understand at all.

No idea where to start with this mess. The narrator's "charming" underdog-esque insistence that he's dumb and not a good writer doesn't work because it's actually bad writing and he never becomes all that likeable. The pacing is a mess and while there's an attempt at some sort of sentimental grand finale it just doesn't pan out. What is this book even about? I thought of bailing many times and now I kind of wish I had.

I think this is a “your mileage may vary” read. Some people will love it and others won‘t. I felt Mastai had a few loose ends. But I liked the story a lot. I also felt that the heart of the story was a son trying to relate to his father (and to a lesser degree his mother.)
