Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Can you stop a murder when it's already happened?

The book everyone has been talking about.

It's every parent's nightmare.

Your happy, funny, innocent son commits a terrible crime: murdering a complete stranger.

You don't know who. You don't know why. You only know your teenage boy is in custody and his future lost.

That night you fall asleep in despair. Until you wake...

...and it is yesterday.

Every morning you wake up a day earlier, another day before the murder. Another chance to stop it.

Somewhere in the past lie the answers, and you don't have a choice but to find them....

brilliant

I heard an interview with the author on times radio and had to try it. Listened to the whole thing in a day. Gripping

So many twists and turns

Loved everything about this book.

You think you know where it’s going and bam it takes a turn, then another and another. It’s not outlandish absurd twists but very unexpected, even if you think you have worked it out.

The narrator is great and I will definitely be looking for more books from both.

Awful

The story started well but rapidly deteriorated- disappointing. Far too lightweight to keep you engaged

Had To Give Up on This Story

Started off really good, a mother wanting to save her son, he’d shot a man. Then it went downhill from there. It was the day before the shooting, then the day before the day before and so it went on. I tried moving on a couple of chapters but that didn’t work for me. Perhaps if the story was told without all the time travel it would have been better. Not for me.

Disappointing

Was really looking forward to this book. It’s unrealistic, at times very obvious and the ending is lazy. Wouldn’t recommend.

Hysterical strength

As a mum I loved this book. The characters could have been more loveable but the story line is imaginative without being too crazy.

Too confusing for me

Got half way and decided to return it. It is confusing, unless you concentrate - and I don't want to do have to do with a novel.

Good. Truly worth it.

Picked this book randomly assuming it would be a variation of the usual plot. It isn't.

A truly excellent listen!

This is probably the best thing I have heard in close to a decade listening to Audible. The story is gripping and incredibly well thought out, the performance is excellent and it is really thought provoking about the various paradoxes of time travel. Bravo!
