From Publishers Weekly

Nov 14, 2016 – In Mastai's imaginative debut novel, Tom Barren's version of 2016 is a technological utopia based on a model popularized by 1950s science fiction. There are flying cars, robot maids, jet packs, teleportation, ray guns, and space vacations. Thanks to an experimental time machine, Tom travels back to the moment this glorious future was born the 1965 invention of the Goettreider Engine, a clean-energy source that transformed mankind. Unfortunately, Tom's presence causes the experiment to go haywire. He disappears, and when he rematerializes he is in an alternate timeline, socially and technologically backward in other words, our own 2016. Horrified at what he sees, Tom tries to come to terms with his new environment, which is only made bearable by a bookstore owner named Penny, with whom he promptly falls in love. In order to prove to her where he is really from, Tom is forced to track down the scientist who invented the clean-energy device. From here, the story takes several startling turns as Tom tries to make things right by using another time machine to change the future of this timeline. Mastai has fun with all the usual conventions of time travel and its many paradoxes, and the cherry on top is his dialogue, reminiscent of Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Customer Reviews

Awesome Read.

This book is very good. It basically has all the right things in it. Like action, tragedy, love and romance, and comedy. It makes you feel like you’re in the same room as the characters.

Amazing

I was given this book from a Good reads giveaway from the author for honest review. Let me start off by saying my favorite part of this book was the time travel and all the science behind all this. Tom was a 32 year old man who to me didn't belong in his world he had a father who hated him and a mother who dropped everything to do make things easy for her husband to make his life easy. And for Tom it was hard to please his father in his time. Until he is Penelope under study in Tom father study of time travel. I did go back fourth with Tom and how he mind set of thinking and how he was feeling and how he did things. The women in his life seem kinda blah to me. If you like time travel and a lot science and number and hoe some people would do anything to relive that one moment over and over then this is the book. Thank you again Elan Mastai for letting me read this book and enjoying it.
