en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 06 Feb 2017
Vin dintr-o lume unde se presupune că ar trebui să avem, să deținem.
Asta nu înseamnă nimic pentru tine, evident, deoarece tu trăiești în această lume eșuată pe care o avem.
Dar lucrurile nu trebuiau să fie așa. Și e doar vina mea - mă rog, a mea și cumva și a tatălui meu.
Și, da, cred că și Penelope poartă o mică parte din această vină care devine comună.
În aceste două lumi ea este dragostea vieții mele. Dar o singură versiune a ei poate exista.
Am o singură șansă imposibilă de a repara cea mai mare greșeală din istorie pentru a putea salva această lume frântă.
Doar că nu știu pe care Penelope să o aleg...

A mind-bending time travel caper
Elan Mastai manages the [time-travel] genre masterfully in his debut novel
A thrilling tale of time travel and alternate timelines with a refreshingly optimistic view of humanity's future
A novel about time travel has no right to be this engaging.
A novel this engaging has no right to be this smart.
And a novel this smart has no right to be this funny. Or insightful. Or immersive.
Basically, this novel has no right to exist."
Elan Mastai has conjured up a witty and freewheeling time-traveling romance that packs an emotional wallop. All Our Wrong Todays is a page-turning delight
All Our Wrong Todays is elaborately constructed and incredibly emotionally intelligent; it's a story with super high stakes that genuinely makes you feel every part of Tom's awful predicament
Witty, original, funny, charming - a great story!
It's all very clever, but it's also not really the point. Because as well as being an intelligent sci-fi story, it's also a love story, and kind of a monomyth, and also just an incredibly relatable, insightful story about being in your 30s, feeling like you haven't achieved anything, and figuring out what's next
A timeless, if mind-bending, story about the journeys we take, populated by friends, family, lovers and others, that show us who we might be, could be - and maybe never should be - that eventually leads us to who we are
Mastai has a penchant for exuberant plot, a quick dash of character and fearlessly funny storytelling
This lovely new novel is It's a Wonderful Life meets The Jetsons. Tom who lives in an alternate 2016 where all the sci-fi fantasies of the 1950s are a reality, suddenly finds himself stranded in our 2016, where he rediscovers his family, friends, and self.
Imagine a world where 2016 was glorious: no Bowie, Brexit, Bake-Off, Bannon. That's where All Our Wrong Todays begins... Ambitious, funny, wry and philosophical, it's not surprising that author Mastai started off his life as a screenwriter (All Our Wrong Todays has already been picked up by uber-producer Amy Pascal) because this a book that has the grand scope of sweeping cinema peppered throughout
Sharp, funny writing is married to complex plotting that whisks through various alternative realities in this mind-bending, time-travelling junket of a novel
So, the thing is, I come from the world we were supposed to have.
That means nothing to you, obviously, because you live here, in the crappy world we do have.
But it never should've turned out like this. And it's all my fault - well, me and to a lesser extent my father.
And, yeah, I guess a little bit Penelope.
In both worlds, she's the love of my life. But only a single version of her can exist.
I have one impossible chance to fix history's greatest mistake and save this broken world.
Except it means saving one Penelope and losing the other forever - and I have absolutely no idea which to choose . . .

Textul de pe ultima copertă
This is a love story that could only happen because of an accident of time travel. In it we meet Tom and Penny, who belong to a world so perfect there's no war, no poverty, no under-ripe avocados.
But when something awful happens to Penny and Tom tries to make it right - you guessed it, with time travel - he accidentally destroys everything and wakes up in our broken, mixed-up world.
Only here, Penny and Tom have a second chance.
Should he try to fix everything and go back to his brilliant, but loveless world, or remain in our messy, complicated one and take a chance on being happy with Penny?
