Publisher's Summary

"You have to kill him." Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain. Only Em can complete the final instruction. She's tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present - imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called "the doctor" while war rages outside.
Marina has loved her best friend, James, since they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America's most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James's life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina's hopes for their future. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was. Em and Marina are in a race against time that only one of them can win. All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.

Pardon you have the correct time?

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would, with the rather large caveat that that person would need to be into a thriller/time travel/mystery offering, and not everyhone is.

If you’ve listened to books by Cristin Terrill before, how does this one compare?

No I have not. This was my first introduction to this author, and it was a moderately good first taste. That said, there is a definite need for a more aggressive editing process. There is some awkward dialogue, scene setting, and confusing( at least to me ) movement between the various charcters.

On balance, however, damn fine.

Which character – as performed by Meredith Mitchell – was your favorite?

No one stood out, but most of them were strong. The main 3 characters, both versions, were well crafted.

Was All Our Yesterdays worth the listening time?


Any additional comments?

As previously noted, it's more than abit messy, with some confusing story mixing in the final 3rd. That said, this is a fascinating story, and worth the credit.

Great adventure - couldn't put it down!

Would you listen to All Our Yesterdays again? Why?

I think I will listen to All Our Yesterdays again because it was such a fun adventure from the moment all the way to the end. I really connected with the characters and I enjoyed how the author effortlessly switched back and forth between the characters in the present and the characters in the past. Just the right mixture of action, adventure, drama, romance, suspense, sci-fi and love.

What other book might you compare All Our Yesterdays to and why?

There really isn't anther time travel novel that has captured my attention and interest the way this novel has. I did enjoy listening to this book as much as I did Divergent.

What about Meredith Mitchell’s performance did you like?

She did a nice job of reading. Her voice is easy to listen too.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I enjoyed the ending. It wasn't a completely happy ending, but it wasn't a sad depressing ending. It is what had to happen, with a sprinkle of hope mixed in.

Any additional comments?

I hope this author writes another book - soon!
