From The Aussie Zombie,
This review is from: Toward Yesterday (Kindle Edition)
Towards Yesterday is a PA book with a twist - time travel.
Imagine your life now, your relationships, your job, your life. Now, imagine you are suddenly thrown back 25 years, retaining all your knowledge and memories, but you're 25 years younger. People that have died in the last 25 years are alive again, people born in the last 25 years no longer exist.
James Bastion is writing his memoirs on New Year's Eve, when he is suddenly thrust 25 years into the past. The world is understandably thrown into chaos....and this is where the science comes into the story. Now, I'll be honest, the science behind these books isn't always my thing, and in Towards Yesterday, I confess I skimmed....but it doesn't detract from the story, and the great characters (the 6 year old scientist is one of my favourites!)
There is a religious element to this book, but it is important to the story, and isn't too `in your face'. There's also a rather spooky serial killer, a revived priest and a good female protagonist.
It is a shame that the book isn't a little longer, and didn't delve more into the way that travelling back in time affected the world, and individual people in it, but this story is more centered on a central group.
Overall I highly recommend this book, it does have the science behind the fiction, and is unique in the Post Apocalyptic genre
