Read-a-Thon Update: The World of Tomorrow is Sadly Outdated by Leanna Renee Hieber

Today I finished reading Leanna Renee Hieber's novella The World of Tomorrow is Sadly Outdated. I'm a huge fan of Leanna's work. This novella was a little different than what I've read from her before, but still equally compelling.

The World of Tomorrow is Sadly Outdated

From the author's website: 

New York City: The Year is 1889.
New York City: The year is 2089.
In 1889 a group of bold pseudo-scientists discover the "temporal current" and begin to view the distant futures that await the Empire City. In the future, all life as we know it has crumbled, leaving New York City a ghost town with a populous scrabbling to survive underground. In the past it's up to an unlikely group of Victorian heroines and heroes to preserve something of their world to save their future generations. In the future it's up to an unlikely group of future survivors to take a leap of faith; discovering what their ancestors left for them with no more guarantees than love and hope.

my thoughts:

I love the way the stories are told, the way they are separate, but connected. Since this is a novella it's a quick and enjoyable read. I highly recommend anything by Leanna Renee Hieber.
