The beginning drew me in immediately because we're introduced to Em, who is stuck in a cell and has been tortured, and we're made to wonder how she got there, who the guy in the cell next door is, who the doctor is, what's so special about the bloody drain... The list goes on. It's mysterious and intriguing and totally captivating right from the get-go.
The action kicks off immediately, and as a lover of all things that that one word entails - from fight scenes to shoot-outs to epic getaways - I am pleased to announce that the fast pacing and amount of action stays steady the entire way through.
I also loved it when the time travel begins, and we're taken to the past. I'm not going to say much because you definitely do not want to be spoiled for this book, but it was great to be able to get two different perspectives of two girls who have had very different experiences.
Throughout the book, Terrill throws in small clues that imply that Marina's world is very different to ours. If you pick up on those, then you'll know something is amiss, but you won't be able to figure out what that is. I wasn't sure what I was dealing with, to be honest!
Em was my favourite out of all the characters. Marina's story was great, but Em's character is just flawless. She's such a badass, and yet she's still loving and caring and she has a soul.Read more ›
However since I started reading it I''d been able to put it down for days at a time. That just doesn't happen to me - I actually made a conscious decision to sit and finish it and put time aside. I think the reason for this was that none of the characters really resonated with me. I neither liked not disliked them, they simply were and therefore it didn't matter to me if they won. I'm sure this is subjective and others will find them more relatable. They just didn't work for me.
Regardless this is still a very good book and if you want a hint if dystopia mixed with a time travel race against the clock quest and a hint of romance, this is definitely for you.
The characters were described brilliantly; not only were they believable, but I cared for Em and Finn and their developing relationship. I also thought that Terrill dealt with the paradoxes in time travel very well. An important issue was addressed in a way that was not confusing and made sense.
The end of the story did leave me with a bit of a lump in my throat as it is beautifully written also. Highly recommended.
All Our Yesterdays struck me as such a cleverly crafted book. It takes place in two different time-frames: on the one hand you have Em and Finn, locked away somewhere where they are tortured by the doctor; then, a few years earlier we read the story of Marina, a popular girl completely besotted by her neighbour, the charming and super-intelligent James. Em and Finn somehow have to save the world, but in doing so they will end up crushing all Marina's dreams.
There's not much more I can tell you about the plot of All Our Yesterdays because it's one of those books where the fun is in working out what's going to happen. For that reason I also advise you to be careful about how many reviews you read - people have a habit of spoiling even small details that are so much fun to work out. Admittedly some of what happens - some of the great reveals - you may guess a few chapters earlier than you should, but that doesn't detract from the brilliance of this book. It's one of those books where you know you're in good hands: it feels carefully planned out, it's beautifully written and it comes with a pull that won't let you go. I think I knew from the first five pages I wouldn't be able to put it down; there are so many mysterious elements to both time-frames and the author reveals them slowly and gradually rather than all at once.
The characters in this book are brilliant and really well-developed.Read more ›
