About this deal

We know this because we're told many times, usually right after the characters say something mundane and awkward. Thank you to NetGalley and William Morrow Publishing for the ARC of Wrong Place, Wrong Time in exchange for an honest review. Perhaps it felt a little abrupt when we go back to ‘the day’ but if readers are wanting a different outcome, they must prefer darker books. I swapped books for awhile as I needed a mental break and around 60% the urge to skim a little was happening.

The time loop is merely a device to set up the premise and enable the story to be told in a different way. Overall, this book will have you questioning the choices you make and their unintended consequences. Well this was certainly different, and there were so many twists I don’t know if I’m on my head or my heels! It's the book we'll all be talking about this summer, so you might as well get ahead of the game and read it now -- S.Both the story of a mother’s love and the sacrifices she will make for her child, and a thriller with a brilliant twist, Wrong Place Wrong Time is a one-of-a-kind novel that begs to be read in one sitting. There simply is no rhyme nor reason to why she's moving backwards, but it doesn't matter – time travel is used to demonstrate how small seemingly insignificant details can add up to a disastrous event. They are here, tonight, together, even if they might part again tomorrow, like two passengers on two trains going in opposite directions. Piuttosto, ho in mente il romanzo di Martin Amis Time’s Arrow – La freccia del tempo, la storia di un criminale nazista vissuta, o rivissuta, a ritroso: a partire dalla morte del protagonista per terminare con la sua nascita. Her British accent is somewhat difficult to understand, but she does a fantastic reading, so I was able to stay with it.

It’s very well written, cleverly plotted, pitched perfectly so it just flows and in some ways it shouldn’t but it does, demonstrating real writing skill. She is happily married and has lived in a bubble where she could never in her wildest dreams think her son is capable of murder. Checking for him through the window, she’s momentarily relieved when she sees him round the corner…until she sees someone she doesn’t recognize approaching him. There are plenty of surprises in this story and once I got into the swing of what was occurring (and once Jen accepted that it was taking place and stopped trying to figure out the how/why/trying to tell everyone around her what was happening) I was able to put on my puzzle solving hat and go with the flow of what Jen was trying to discover.

To be honest, the intricate plot and introspectiveness in the last half had me full-on Ray Charles to the comma splices. A brilliantly genre-bending, mind-twisting answer to the question, how far would you go to save your child? Una “coazione a ripetere” che dovrebbe approdare a una nuova consapevolezza come in un classico processo psicoanalitico. I thought this was going to be one of those domestic dramas of a mother feeling guilty about her bad parenting which leads to her son misbehaving. Slowly, though, it becomes clear that she is learning something new about the crime with every revisited experience.
