All Our Yesterdays

All Our Yesterdays  - Cristin Terrill This review was originally posted on Istyria book blog.Actual rating: 4.5 starsI'm usually not a big fan of Science Fiction or Dystopian books. They have to be really good for to actually like them. And I mean REALLY good. And then this book comes along. A sci-fi/dystopian book that just blew me away. I just can't even wrap my head around it. And it's going to be so hard to talk about it in this review, but I'll give it my best shot. How do I tell you guys what this book is about without spoilers? It's nearly impossible. So just read the blurb if you want to know, because that's the only way to really do it. Basically, it's about Em and Finn. They know each other, they have a shared past and they're being kept in cells next to each other and there's a doctor who wants to know something from them. And they can hear each other through an air vent, so they also hear each others pain while the doctor tries to torture the answers out of them. And one day, Em finds a note in her cell that changes everything. It's from her future self and it just says one thing. She needs to kill the guy she loves to save the future. Yeah, something like that. But it's way more complicated than that and I can't tell you without ruining everything for you if you haven't read it yet. So that's so stupid. And I can't really talk about the characters or the story either. I can tell you that I love Em and Finn. They're really good characters and I just rooted for them. I was on their side the whole time. For the others... Well, I'll just say that nobody is what they seem. This book is filled with riddles and you'll only get the answers if you keep reading, so obviously, you can't put this book down. You just need to know. This book just pulled me in right from the start and didn't let me go. I read it in one sitting. Of course, I got up sometimes to eat and drink and all that stuff, but that doesn't matter. It didn't let me go until I turned the last page. And you need that, because otherwise you won't understand a thing anymore. You need to focus on this book for 200%. So clear your schedule when you're going to read this book. And that's the only little bad thing in this book. Sometimes it's a bit confusing. You really need to pay attention to every word, because they all matter. I have to say that the time traveling in this book is very well executed. Time travel is a hard thing to do and it's often done wrong. Things don't add up and all that. But not in this book. Really good job, I have to say. If you're a fan of The Hunger Games or any other dystopian novel, you'll probably like this one too. and if you're a fan of time travel too, all the better. But I wasn't a fan of time travel and sci-fi, not really. Until this book that is. So just read the book if you're a fan of dystopian novels or sci-fi. If you're not, just read the damn book too. I hope this review helped a bit, even though it's pretty vague. xD
