"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"--… (mais)

I really liked this book. I liked the intimacy in which it was written and I especially liked the theory about time travel. It blew my mind (I'd never before heard that theory) and I have been geekily repeating its premise to quite a few friends.

The story didn't go where I ultimately expected which surprised me--it just seemed too obvious not to. Good on Elan.

I plan on doing a reread of this on audio. It totally deserves it. ( )

This was my first audio book experience and I think for this book the audio was a really great way to ingest it. I was worried the time travel narrative would get confusing because I didn't have the words right in front of me, but I was able to stay in the narrative and follow along. I think the author did a great job building out the main character, both in external and internal monologue. Because of the audio component, it was really nice to hear the characters thoughts out loud.

I think I preferred the second half of the book, where the plot really started moving forward, the first half of the book alludes to the plot you know is coming but provides a lot of backstory (albeit necessary backstory). I think I just found it to move slowly since I was teased what the story line would be, and it just took a really long time to get there.

All in all, for a time-travel novel, I think it really hit the human side/impact of it all that you normally don't get to see in books like that, or at least in books that I have been exposed too. A great read/listen . ( )

A fast paced, chaotic novel starring a loveable goof of a guy who gets deeply involved in a complicated problem involving time travel, alternate realities, and love.

I feel like this will be a movie someday although I can't entirely imagine how they will pull it off.

I liked this one a whole lot more than Dark Matter. ( )

Élan Mastai's "All Our Wrong Todays" posits a very thoughtful question about physics which, I have to admit, I had never thought about before or seen discussed anywhere else: what if mankind could harness the power of the Earth's rotation?

The story is an alternative future, or alternative past, or both. Which makes this story fun.

In one future we have limitless power, in another future we have pretty much what we have now. Which is better?

In both universes we still have the problems that face fathers and sons, boyfriends and girlfriends, teachers and students.

In this story we give someone the power to change the direction of the future with time travel; the first time to break the future, the second time to restore it to its original arc. ( )

Some really cool ideas presented here that I've never seen/thought of before. Parts of the structure/plot weren't totally in my wheelhouse, and I think I built it up to kind of go a different direction after hearing about it for a year, but I enjoyed it. ( )
