Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you suddenly found yourself 25 years in the past? For the nine billion people living in the year 2042 it's no longer a question...it's a reality.
When a seemingly simple experiment goes disastrously wrong, James Baston finds himself stranded in the past alongside the rest of mankind. Here the old are young once more, the dead live again, and civilization is in chaos.
With the fate of humanity on the line, James must join a hastily assembled group of scientists, a reincarnated murder victim, and a genius trapped in her six-year-old body to reconcile the earlier mistakes of their future counterparts. The team struggles to prevent global extinction, and along the way they come face-to-face with their past losses, new loves, and a cold-blooded killer. As the team plummets toward a final confrontation, will they be able to undo time's unraveling in order to save the human race?
Revised edition: this edition of Toward Yesterday includes editorial revisions.

Creative concept; so-so implementation

Very early on New Year's Day of the year 2042 the people on earth find that the calendar has moved back 25 years to 2017. Most people are 25 years younger, many who died since 2017 were alive again, and people younger than 25 no longer existed. Creative contemporary sci-fi concept! The implementation is okay, but not as good as the concept. Overall Toward Yesterday is a worthwhile listen. It is made better by outstanding narration.

What did you like best about this story?

The original idea of the novel is at once standard fare done well ( a time leap ) and original ( what is the implications of the entire concept.) Very cool indeed!


What about Alexander Cendese’s performance did you like?

Again, I come back to the central voice casting ideas. Consistent, clear and original. He does all three, and it grows on the listener. Well performed, and I will look for him in future offerings.


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

The moment when "the event" occurred was highly compelling and described in relentless and profound detail.


Any additional comments?

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast.

An excellent combination of author, idea and performance, this is a very unique book in the dystopian/timetravel category, and comes highly recommended.
