Staff Reviews


Tom Barren majorly f-ed up. After a time travel accident born of arrogance and grief, he finds himself in the most messed up possible world: our 2016. See, Tom is from the world we were supposed to have. Life was much more The Jetsons before he messed with the timeline. Hilariously funny and hyper aware of itself, this book is a madcap roller coaster ride from start to finish. I cannot emphasize enough how much I enjoyed this book and, man, am I mad at Tom Barren for the present we have. His sounds so much more pleasant and imaginative.

Description


"Entertainingly mixes thrills and humor."--Entertainment Weekly

" An] amazing debut novel. . . . Dazzling and complex. . . . Fearlessly funny storytelling."--The Washington Post

"Instantly engaging. . . . A timeless, if mind-bending, story about the journeys we take, populated by friends, family, lovers, and others, that show us who we might be, could be--and maybe never should be--that eventually leads us to who we are."--USA Today

Elan Mastai's acclaimed debut novel is a story of friendship and family, of unexpected journeys and alternate paths, and of love in its multitude of forms.

It's 2016, and in Tom Barren's world, technology has solved all of humanity's problems--there's no war, no poverty, no under-ripe avocadoes. Unfortunately, Tom isn't happy. He's lost the girl of his dreams. And what do you do when you're heartbroken and have a time machine? Something stupid.

Finding himself stranded in a terrible alternate reality--which we immediately recognize as our 2016--Tom is desperate to fix his mistake and go home. Right up until the moment he discovers wonderfully unexpected versions of his family, his career, and the woman who may just be the love of his life.

Now Tom faces an impossible choice. Go back to his perfect but loveless life. Or stay in our messy reality with a soulmate by his side. His search for the answer takes him across continents and timelines in a quest to figure out, finally, who he really is and what his future--our future--is supposed to be.

Filled with humor and heart and packed with insight, intelligence, and mind-bending invention, All Our Wrong Todays is a powerful and moving story of life, loss, and love.
