Book Description

18 Feb 2014

A brilliantly brain-warping thriller and a love story that leaps back and forth in time - All Our Yesterdays is an amazing first novel, perfect for fans of The Hunger Games.

Em is locked in a bare, cold cell with no comforts. Finn is in the cell next door. The Doctor is keeping them there until they tell him what he wants to know. Trouble is, what he wants to know hasn't happened yet.

Em and Finn have a shared past, but no future unless they can find a way out. The present is torture - being kept apart, overhearing each other's anguish as the Doctor relentlessly seeks answers. There's no way back from here, to what they used to be, the world they used to know. Then Em finds a note in her cell which changes everything. It's from her future self and contains some simple but very clear instructions. Em must travel back in time to avert a tragedy that's about to unfold. Worse, she has to pursue and kill the boy she loves to change the future . . .

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but not amazing 31 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I honestly really dont agree with any of the 5 star reviews at all, i think thats pushing it quite a lot, however literature like Art is subjective.

I personally found it to be ok.

Em and Marina are the same person, 4 years apart, told from different perspectives and different points in time.

Marina is 15, Em 19, Marina is in school and in love with her best friend James who lives next door.
She has dysfunctional parents who are never home and is closer to her housekeeper Luz than anyone.

Em is 19, in love with Finn, is in prison, and hates James with so much passion she plans to go back in time to kill him.

Why ? You will have to read and find out.

I personally found this quite hard to believe.

The timelines to me made absolutely no sense whatsoever, i think that more time needed to be between each perspective considering the gravity of what happened.

It would of made more sense to me if 10 or even 20 years had gone by but just 4 ? Illogical.

Anyway. Read it and find out for yourself, i would see if you get it out at the library 1st though.

5.0 out of 5 stars An instant all-time favorite! 21 Sep 2013
Every once in a while, a book comes along with a synopsis and a cover which convince you, no matter what, you will love that book. You don't need to read any reviews or reactions, you just know. It doesn't happen too often. I believe the last time I had it, it was with Stormdancer. But then, along came All Our Yesterdays. I just knew it. However, with previous reads that I had high hopes for ultimately letting me down, I was still nervous about it. But that was unwarranted for All Our Yesterdays. Make no mistake, I love this book.

I'm kind of in love with the time travel concept, so that is what instantly drew me in. It's so well executed that it's hard to do it justice with this review. Time travel is a delicate concept because... how do you tackle it? How do you deal with the paradoxes? Cristin Terrill had no problem with it. She is a master storyteller and the intricate beauty of this story puts this book on my favorites list and her next books on my to-read list as well.

I think what draws me to time travel and parallel universe stories is that it all comes down to the choices we make and their implications. But what All Our Yesterdays does so well is that it uses that to create very complex characters. Let it be known now, I love me a complex villain. Seriously. You give me a book where the villain can show that certain motivations or principles are driving his actions, that there's a logic to it, that it could be perceived as "right", and I will love that book. And that book, in this case, is All Our Yesterdays. The villain is scary and creepy and wrong. But you see his development to that point as well. You see what drives him. You see that he truly believes he's doing good. You almost sympathize with him. But it's also wrong. God, I just love the complexity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection. 11 Sep 2013
'All Our Yesterdays' by Cristin Terrill - quite possibly the best book I have read in a long time. I started to type out a long title, over-brimming with adjectives - brilliant, clever, complex, intense, funny, moving... - but I settled on perfect. It was either that or wow.

I admit, what really grabbed me about this book was the quote from Shakespeare's 'Macbeth'. One of my favourite quotes, it sums up this novel perfectly. I bought my copy elsewhere, and find myself now wishing I had ordered it from Amazon! Under 4 is an incredible price for an incredible book. I was hooked by the first sentence... ("I stare at the drain in the centre of the concrete floor. It was the first thing I saw when they locked me in this cell, and I've barely looked away since.") ...and I could barely put this book down since.

The writing is outstanding. I cannot fault it. There are so many books out there that may have a gripping story, or compelling characters, yet are let down by shoddy writing. Not this. The brilliant, intricately complicated plot is held together by faultless writing. (Shoot, there I go with the adjectives again!) At times, I felt chilled at what I was reading. Seconds later, grinning like a fool.

The characters are incredible too. Massive kudos to Cristin Terrill for creating such a fantastic character in Finn, who can make the reader smile in the grimmest of situations. I loved Finn. I loved all the characters, each so refreshingly 3 dimensional, even the truly evil ones. My only slight issue might be the lack of ugly characters... everyone seemed to be attractive, or charming in some way. But this hardly matters compared to the rest of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars loved it 24 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I actually really loved All our Yesterdays. It is fast paced and exciting with some brilliant ideas. I loved how the story flipped backwards and forwards between the past and present meaning I had to start piecing together the story for myself. I particularly enjoyed seeing how the two stories were woven together and I loved the time travel element to the story. I I love a good YA title with a time travelling element.

What I found particularly fascinating about this story was what it had to say about fate and whether someone is destined to follow a certain path. I liked seeing how this played out within the story and how it affected their actions. A quick mention needs to go to Finn as I loved him as a character.

A fab read which I really really enjoyed
