I won this on a Goodreads giveaway. For that, I am thankful. However, I have to agree with some of the previous reviews in that it was an interesting concept but the writing was terrible. In some places it was so bad that you could not infer what was meant. A simple spell check in Word would have identified 95% of the spelling errors.

I hope the author will view this as version as a draft, further vetting the story and correct all the spelling/grammatical errors as there truly is potential here.

I want to preface this review by disclosing that I received a copy for free through the GoodReads First Reads giveaway. (Yay!)

Try as I might, I could not get drawn into this book. The premise was very interesting and so relatable - who doesn’t wish they could warn their past selves about what the future would hold? I appreciated that there were 3 short stories that gave a glimpse into the multiple ways that time travel technology could be used. It got me thinking about what I would use that tech

I won a free copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway (which by the way arrived very quickly so thanks!)

I wanted to give this book at least, two stars. I really did. The concept behind the book is absolutely fascinating and I thought that these three stories were a pretty novel exploration of what people would really do if we could communicate to ourselves in the past or future. Some parts were even quite funny or exciting.

The problem was that this book very badly needed an editor. There were t

I won this book from Goodreads.
Wasnt Tomorrow Wonderful is a really clever idea done pretty well. In three short stories, Stilwell tells the tale of a new internet service that lets you send an email one month into the future or past. There are rules, like you cant send back farther than the day the machine exists and the like.
Over all, the idea and execution is done well. The only problems i found was with the editing and proofing. there were a lot of typos, including spelling errors, using the

I received a free copy of this book from the Goodreads First Reads program in exchange for an honest review.

It's a fun little time travel book. It's well written, decently thought out, and has a reasonable theoretical basis. I will be looking for more books by Mr. Stillwell.

The short stories are set in a nearish future, where gene splicing is cheap enough that a middle class single man can have a vegetarian pygmy T. rex as a pet and the first thought when one sees a girl with cat's eyes is genet

I first have to say that I am so thankful and happy to have gotten this book free in a Goodreads Giveaway!

It was really well written with a very awesome premise... being able to email one month into the past or the future....

I just wish it was one story and not three really short stories. This author is really talented and creative and I really loved the writing here .... I just wish it was longer and there was more of it :)

The idea was fresh. the stories were short but a quick read. Took me only 2 hours to read (with interruptions). Wanted more of the first and third story. Both could be expanded to a novelette or short novel. Thumbs up to the author.

I won this in a first reads giveaway. It deals with an interesting concept, communication from the future, from several different angles. Fun stories, but the last one got a little to technical for me.
