Our reading panel loved All Our Wrong Todays – here are some of their comments:

“This is one of the best sci-fi books that I’ve ever read. It’s genuinely hilarious throughout, for one thing, as well as containing one of the simplest and best concepts for an alternative-universe story that I’ve come across.”

“This is an incredibly imaginative story about time travel and parallel worlds. I started off thinking I would hate it, as I don’t like science fiction, but the main character Tom’s voice was engaging, and it was witty with lots of good dialogue.”
