Many different allusions to the modern day. The relationship between the two characters is complex and leaves you pondering a lot fo questions ( )

Such an amazing book! I loved how fast-paced it was and how beautiful the language was. Both characters were also a joy to get to know, I wish I had more of them to read! ( )

This is how you lose the time war, bitch!

It’s weird how a book that starts out with such a wide scope can end up so intimate and tender. It’s somewhere between “If on a winters night a traveler” and “Dead Astronauts” (the former I hated, the latter I loved). At the beginning, the setting changes from Ghengis Khan to the far future, which makes it feel like you have to get in the groove of one section till it switches abruptly. Do the settings pertain to the story at all or are they just set dressing? But the reason this worked, and “If on a winters night a traveler” didn’t, is because “This Is How You Lose the Time War” eventually broke from that format, introducing a surprisingly sweet lesbian love story about halfway through.

The time-hopping format definitely took some getting used to. The current-day references to “Siri” and “Blue Da-Ba-Dee” where jarring at first, but if Red & Blue span all points in time at once I suppose they can be aware of 20th century pop culture. Luckily, there wasn’t too much of that. All the bits about Blue being in nature were my favorite, and could have been taken straight from a Mary Oliver poem… All in all, something I thought was just a cool twist on the epistolary novel turned out to be one of the sweetest love stories I’ve read as of late :’) ( )

Beautifully written: go read this.

Eloquent, subtle, atmospheric; fast paced but still carrying depth. So much wordplay; if you delight in such things, as I do, then you will find the writing itself to be so much joy. TIHYLTTW is what happens when fantasy is used not as a limiter but as a springboard for wild creativity and complexity. (I consider this to be a high tech fantasy; others may feel differently.

My only complaint as such is I think some of the novel descends into abstract description and I personally would have preferred to dwell on exactly what the limitations of the characters were, if any. That part I found hard to picture. Maybe if this were a novel and not a novella that would be possible; wordcount is a constraint here.

But it is a minor complaint and not nearly enough to stop me loving the book. ( )

Fast and impactful and violent and desperate. A beautiful romance filled with jewel-like worlds of past and future, and communication through letters - time capsules of feeling. Lots of really pointy prose here, and it's so fun to read. Sci-fi sapphic romance is the superior genre. ( )

Part epistolary romance, part mind-blowing science fiction adventure, this dazzling story unfolds bit by bit, revealing layers of meaning as it plays with cause and effect, wildly imaginative technologies, and increasingly intricate wordplay.
