    I ve seen another review post this quote, but it s the one that stuck with me as well Our culture has become obsessed with supporting everyone s individual dreams and ambitions, catering to every little whim, assuring ourselves that we re each special and unique We need to bring back our concern for each other and focus on building our community The concept of time wrecks may be relatively new, but the sin behind it is a tale as old as time I ve started reading this book a few days ago, and I ve seen another review post this quote, but it s the one that stuck with me as well Our culture has become obsessed with supporting everyone s individual dreams and ambitions, catering to every little whim, assuring ourselves that we re each special and unique We need to bring back our concern for each other and focus on building our community The concept of time wrecks may be relatively new, but the sin behind it is a tale as old as time I ve started reading this book a few days ago, and today I simply couldn t put it down and flew through it.Personally, I would love to reload an old save, you know Just go back ten years and do things differently Live my life differently But then I look at my other half, and I think no, I wouldn t want to risk this relationship.This is exactly what Will and Mara face They ve met because of a school shooting during which Mara got shot She s suffering from chronic pain Will is suffering from PTSD They are happily married If they go back and undo it allthey might never meet.The romance is wonderful and when do you ever hear me say that and I love both Will and Mara They re amazing characters They re initially opposed to a timeline rectification because what if they don t find each other in this new timeline What if they don t fall in love with each other What if they don t even meet You have no idea how much this thought stresses me Mara, however, deals with so much pain and Will suffers from nightmares They deserve to go back They deserve a life without PTSD and pain.It s not as easy as that Of course Timeline Rectification is regulated There s a trial Everyone needs to agree There are rules And, as usual, about half the world is opposed Because of personal conviction, religion, because of politics or because they think it isn t moral You should only live once YSOLO The author does an amazing job showing all the different problems that come with the possibility of timeline rectification and why the different factions all got a point She does this by including blog posts, news reports and comments on Internet forums.The point of view switches back and forth between Will and Mara Both characters are well developed and they both struggle a lot and are torn about the timeline rectification because of different reasons.I don t want to say too much about the plot, since I love going into books without knowing anything at all I loved Every Last Minute because the author clearly put a lot of thought into the time travel aspect and surprised me several times with things I hadn t even thought of, like how exactly does the government keep track of this and regulate it The pacing is great, especially if you re interested in the time travel aspect how it works etc otherwise you might find the middle a bit slow The prose is engaging and well edited.Also what a gorgeous cover, right I recommend Every Last Minute to fans of time travel novels and obviously to everyone who finds the premise interesting.I received a review copy from the author in return for an honest review

    I absolutely loved this book The characters felt real to me and I couldn t put it down, even when my mind kept prompting me with how can they know the time wreck works if no one can remember or how is the government tracking this if time changed and so many other twists that you can t stop thinking about the paradox that is always present when you think about time travel Mara s dealing with chronic pain, doctors, and pharmacies and the way people suffering from pain that is NEVER going I absolutely loved this book The characters felt real to me and I couldn t put it down, even when my mind kept prompting me with how can they know the time wreck works if no one can remember or how is the government tracking this if time changed and so many other twists that you can t stop thinking about the paradox that is always present when you think about time travel Mara s dealing with chronic pain, doctors, and pharmacies and the way people suffering from pain that is NEVER going to end was also spot on Those who have to live with pain are so often treated with suspicion and disdain, and Ellen has nailed how that feels to someone whose life is one huge round of misery every day I anxiously await the next book Great job, Ellen

    A loving young couple faces the most challenging question of their relationship How they choose to answer this and relive a painful but profound time in their life by time traveling, is what kept me reading EVERY LAST MINUTE until the end Smith has woven contemporary politics, American values and a new kind of science fiction into this intriguing story where I found the relationship between Mara and Will to be the most interesting Looking forward to book 2.
