  • I didn't think it was possible, but Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler managed to fuck up one of the best ideas of 2011. It's 1996, and less than half of all American high school students have ever used the Internet.Emma just got her first computer and an America Online CD-ROM.Josh is her best friend. They power up and log on--and discover themselves on Facebook, fifteen years in the future.Everybody wonders what their Destiny will be. Josh and Emma are about to find out.How do you fuck up an epic id [...]

  • Like youth, it would see, time travel is wasted on the young. How else to explain the idiotic uses the teenage simpletons in The Future of Us find for the gift of a glimpse into the future? If, in 1996, you were given a window of the year 2011 via a magical link to your Facebook profile, would you, A) search as many profiles as you could to find out what happens in the worlds of politics and finance in order to ensure your financial future, B) seek out information on friends and family not only [...]

  • The hypocrisy in this book is absolutely immeasurable. Emma dates guys based on how hot she thinks they are, or how good their hair looks. She does not care a single ounce, nor even LIKE the guys she dates. She simply dates them so she can have a boyfriend and doesn't once consider their feelings. Does her bff Kellen condone her for this? No. Does Kellen even acknowledge this? No. And yet when Josh agrees to ONE date with Sydney, Kellen is all on his butt telling him he's a jerk for accepting wh [...]

  • What a great combination Carolyn Mackler and Jay Asher make when it comes to delivering a highly entertaining and heartfelt story. This was pure awesome, and I hope these two authors continue to combine their magic with great stories and fun loving characters. Well done!Set in 1996, Emma gets a computer from her father as a gift, and her best friend Josh comes over with a CD that gives her 100 free hours on AOL. Remember those days? Yeah, I do too. ^^ When they log on, they discover this interes [...]

  • Emma and Josh get their first AOL disc in 1996, and once they log on, they are somehow able to login to Facebook. They can see their future on their Facebook pages and change the future simply by changing small things they do in their current lives. When I first read the synopsis I thought this was an extremely unique and fun plot. I still do. Then they move into the actual butterfly effect aspect and things just seem silly. Can your whole world change just because you spill some water on the gr [...]

  • Logging on to your future Facebook account, 15 years ago? Now that would have been interesting! This is what happens to Josh and Emma after Emma gets her first computer in 1996.Growing up in the 90s, I got a real nostalgic feeling while reading this. Talk of Walkmans, VCRs and scrunchies was simply amusing. I did feel there were a few unnecessary parts thrown in only to add more '90s detail, but they worked to dig up old memories. It's not a deep, emotional read like Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why [...]

  • The Future of Us was a big disappointment. Did this really come from the same, insightful writer of Thirteen Reasons Why? I haven't read anything by the woman he co-wrote it with, so I'm going to blame her for creating such a boy-obsessed, annoying, female protagonist. The male character isn't much better, but he likes the future that's been mapped out for him, so his shallowness doesn't shine through as clearly. He makes smarter choices throughout the book. Although, he can still be accused of [...]

  • So let me get this straight. It's the mid-90s, and you discover a magical AOL cd that gives you a version of the internet 15 years into the future. You are introduced to this frightening social website called Facebook, in which people overshare details about their life. So of course, the first thing you do is see who you're married to, because without the validation of a guy, you're no one. No checking if your grandparents are still alive. No checking if 9/11 happened. No checking if you have a [...]

  • As we wrap up the year, I wanted one of the last books I read to be one of the books that's been on my TBR the longest, so I finally got around to reading this one. I thought the premise sounded intriguing - finding your Facebook account 15 years in the future and seeing what your future looks like, but I couldn't connect with any of the characters, which sometimes happens when I read YA since I'm not the target audience. I will say that the book was easy to read and interesting enough to hold m [...]

  • I really liked the premise of this book:*1996*Emma and Josh, two best friends going through a tough stage in their friendship*An AOL CD*Mysterious “Facebook” account that gives Emma and Josh glimpses into their futuresThis story was right up my alley. I love stories that deal with alternate paths of their future based on seemingly small decisions. I think delivered a powerful message in a unique and interesting way. (view spoiler)[(You can miss out on life by constantly looking to the future [...]

  • It's taken me awhile to get this review up because I needed to think about some of the awesome things that happened in this book. I think it's one of the more realistic portrayals of teens that I've seen - even if these teens live in 1996. A lot of YA books I've read lately create situations where teens have to grow up too soon - books like Divergent, The Hunger Games, even Kieran Scott's "She's So Dead to Us" series look at teens in complex, life-or-death situations that force teens to make adu [...]

  • I was really excited to receive an early copy of this book because it's is going to be a movie and also because it has one of the most interesting premise (premises?) of all the upcoming 2011 books. I am so glad it did not disappoint!First off, these authors are amazing! I have read all of their works and really enjoy their writing styles. So combine them and you get such a genuine real insightful characters, you can't help but love.Second, I freaking LOVED all the 90's references. Dave Matthews [...]

  • My review can also be found on my blog Collectionsis://bookwascute <--Okay, I know that was cheesy, but whatever! hahaI'm really surprised at how much I loved The Future of Us! Looking at other reviews and ratings on here and LibraryThing made me a bit wary, but I'm so glad I gave this book a chance! The book alternated between the POVs of Emma and Josh, who have been best friends since they were little kids. I really liked them both! Emma was a caring and good person, but she did come off as [...]

  • actual rating: 3.5I loved the 90s vibes in this book <3 it's 1996 Josh and Emma have been friends for ages when one day he brings her a CR-ROM that has Facebook on it after she downloads it and logs in, it's her Facebook account 15 years into the future!It was a cute short read, I liked how they were shocked by the things we have now lol, the black president, Ellen DeGeneres wasn't known being gay yet xD, cellphones weren't a major thing, and there were no smart phones and the way they used t [...]

  • Popsugar Reading Challenge 2017 - A book set in the decade you were born (5/40) This book did not feed my 90's nostalgia as I hoped it would. Besides some very generic cultural references which served to assure the reader that, indeed, the events are happening in the 90's, there wasn't much effort to create some sort of 90's atmosphere. However, the whole "time-travel via internet" premise is awesome, and the execution wasn't too bad. The novel does get its message across, both in relation to ho [...]

  • The description is one of the most intriguing ones I've ever read and since I’ve already read 13 Reasons Why (and loved it) I was hoping I would end up loving this book as well. But honestly The Future of Us was a let down.Get ready for a pretty negative review with lot's of spoilers (-:-( (view spoiler)[I have a problem with one of the protagonists, Emma. I find that Emma is one of the most shallow characters I've ever read about simply because her thoughts revolve around guys, 24/7. Which gu [...]

  • A funny time-capsule of a book, already dated before it's even officially released. The authors are certainly aware of the time-sensitive nature of the project, so they don't even make an attempt at timelessness or at not setting it in any particular timeframe. This is good, but I think that even in five years some of it will simply not make sense to young readers. Facebook and the internet are going to change that much.The 1996 setting is overdone in places, with too many cultural references (I [...]

  • First of all this book has dual POV which is awesome. Books written this way give us the 2 sides of the story. We get to know better not only one but both of the main characters which in this book are Josh and Emma who are best friends ever since. So the setting is set in 1996 where people are starting to use the internet. One day, Josh handed an AOL CD to Emma who just recently received a computer from her dad. Emma installed the CD and finds herself logged in to a FACEBOOK page 15 years in the [...]

  • I didn't like The Future of Us.*****PLAIN.The Future of Us was a flop for me. I thought the “Facebook” theme would evolve into something more meaningful than it actually is, but it did not. The writing was unimpressive; the female lead was irritating; the love story is kinda all over the place. I hope you are not pining for The Future of Us because it is not worth waiting for.Emma is obnoxious to Josh. She’s selfish and self-centered. I could not find a single thing to like about her! Alth [...]

  • I've been reading a lot of Serious Books recently, between adult thrillers and YA books dealing with mental health issues and abusive relationships. And as a result, I've been feeling a little burnt out and in dire need of something fluffy. So when I picked this up at about 6pm and found that it was exactly what I'd been wanting, I sped through the entire thing cover to cover in the space of three hours (while watching season 2 of The X-Files for that real 1996 feeling).The gist of this book is [...]

  • The narrators of the novel are 16-year-olds, Emma and Josh, who live next door to each other and have been best friends for as long as they can remember. One day Emma is given a computer and an AOL CD-Rom with 100 free hours on it. Emma goes online and finds her Facebook page from 15 years into the future!This novel was a nostalgia trip back to 1996 for me – when the Internet was brand spanking new and we all had to connect to it with painfully slow (and incredibly noisy) dial up, when we all [...]

  • I’m recalling some pretty interesting funny things care of my family. The nineties as history?! There was my brother and his love for Wayne’s World, and low slung jeans puffy sweaters. My sister and her love of the group soul ballad. Boyz 2 Men, it mentions, but my sister was all about All Saints. And later still there was her fondness for the Backstreet Boys and their Quit Playing with-what’s it. I, on the other hand, had Captain Planet and Gem to focus on (wait, it will come back to you. [...]

  • 4,5 stars <3I want to start with honest note, so I must say that I took this book from library without much curiosity. Just people in Lithuania keep talking about it, so I thought - why not. Even if most of the time I feel disappointed of the book that I have chosen because of other people talks. To my surprise, this time was way different.The story & style. I couldn't say that I was left mind blowed. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the story a lot. However, I wanted something behind Facebo [...]

  • If there was a device or a program that would let you give a preview of what your life would be 15 years from now, would you try it out?Would you really like to know how life has turned out for you and the people around you?When you find out that your life after 15 years sucks, would you try and change it in your present time?Josh's mom told him to bring the AOL CD they received to Emma's place because she recently received her new PC.They installed it.Emma made her email address and then a myst [...]

  • This was a cute story. The book's a little simplistic (the 16-point font didn't help), nothing groundbreaking or amazing, but it was still enjoyable. I'd recommend it not only for teenagers but for those who were teenagers in the mid '90s. It was fun to go back and realize how different life was, how much we take for granted now. Getting off the Internet to use the phone, waiting for film to the develop, trips to the video store. Good times. Good times.My main issue with the book was I struggled [...]

  • Fun, fun, fun!Cute, cute, cute!The Future of Us has a really neat time travel concept that people should get a real kick out of, specially if you have facebook. This was pretty creative and so much fun that I lost myself completely, reading this in just a span of a few hours. Unputdownable.Josh and Emma are so adorable. Life long friends who drifted apart since one wanted more then the other, but when Emma gets her first computer and Josh brings over AOL things are put into motion that neither o [...]

  • What would you do if you had your future at your fingertips? What would you have done if you stumbled upon Facebook 8 years before it was invented and you saw how your living in the future?Josh and Emma have been best friends almost their entire lives until things get a little awkward Josh gets a free AOL CD in the mail and gives it to Emma to install on her new computer. The pair then stumbles upon a website called Facebook and it's a little bit weird Who would write about what their having for [...]

  • Der Schreibstil und die Protagonisten haben mir super gut gefallen, es war ein schönes Jugendbuch mit tollen nostalgischen Momenten. Leider war ich nicht ganz zufrieden, was das Ende anbelangt, ich habe noch so viele Fragen und es war mir etwas zu simpel. Da mir aber der Großteil des Buches super gut gefallen hat, gibt es noch knappe 4 Sterne.

  • Een boek met een cool concept, maar de uitwerking ervan had misschien wat spectaculairder gekund Mijn recensie over dit boek kan je hier lezen: nerdygeekyfanboy/recensie/
