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.
