Welcome to the end of time. It’s a perfect day.

Nobody remembers how the Causality War started. Really, there’s no-one to remember, and nothing for them to remember if there were; that’s sort of the point. We were time warriors, and we broke time.

I was the one who ended it. Ended the fighting, tidied up the damage as much as I could.

Then I came here, to the end of it all, and gave myself a mission: to never let it happen again.
Have you ever read a book, really enjoyed it but aren’t exactly sure what happened during that book.  

No? 

Maybe its just me but I have just finished One Day All This Will Be Yours and I loved reading it though I’m not 100% sure what exactly happened.  This could be due to my old brain busting nemesis Time Travel.

Our narrator lives an idyllic life.  He has an enormous farm with many hi tech robots to look after all the dirty jobs and on it lives his loyal pet Miffly.  He spends hours just strolling about his farm or tootling about on his tractor and he has the distinction of being the last human alive.  Well sort of....

Our narrator fought a war, a war of time, whole points in time where wiped out and only slithers of time remain.  He has tied up the loose ends as much as he can but occasionally he gets visitors from the past and present.  He greets them, shakes them down for information and then feeds them, then he literally feeds them to Miffly who I’d better mention is a dinosaur, check the front cover out, thats her.

He is determined to be the last man standing but a series of visitors who don’t end up in the belly of Miffly  throw a slight spanner in his works.  The past and future may be catching up with him.

This book was bonkers but it was also incredibly entertaining!  

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I know what you mean, yes, I can enjoy a book even if it leaves me confused. Time travel often does that to me. BTW - I think I have this eGalley, as the title is familiar.

  2. I'm impressed, if the story was confusing and you still loved it enough to give it 5 stars! I'll have to add this to my TBR:-)

  3. I can't say I have read something like this, but can totally relate. I've read books that I love but couldn't quite explain all the reasons why. Lol.

  5. Hello! I don't remember right now if what you explain has ever happened to me. I guess sometimes we are just so concentrated in knowing what is going to happen next that we don't really know what it is all about. Like sometimes things just happen without a reason. But for what you explain about the book maybe this was the aim of the book itself. Great review :)

    1. Thank you, I struggle to remember yesterday! It was a thought provoking read, mainly with the though I should read it again to see if I understood it more!

  6. Answer to your first question: Yes! I know what you mean by time travel being a nemesis. But I love such stories as they throw me out of my day to day obsessions which is as good as therapy for me.

  10. I read a book called Reincarnation Blues, which I loved, but felt exactly the same way about it. Ha ha. Thanks for sharing your review. I'm going to hop over to Goodreads and add it. 👏👏👏
