Book Review: The Methuselah Project

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book: 

Nazi scientists started many experiments. One never ended.

Roger Greene is a war hero. Raised in an orphanage, the only birthright he knows is the feeling that he was born to fly. Flying against the Axis Powers in World War II is everything he always dreamed---until the day he's shot down and lands in the hands of the enemy.

When Allied bombs destroy both his prison and the mad genius experimenting on POWs, Roger survives. Within hours, his wounds miraculously heal, thanks to those experiments. The Methuselah Project is a success---but this ace is still not free. Seventy years later, Roger hasn't aged a day, but he has nearly gone insane. This isn't Captain America---just a lousy existence only made passable by a newfound faith. The Bible prov ides the only reliable anchor for Roger's sanity and his soul. When he finally escapes, there's no angelic promise or personal prophecy of deliverance, just confusion. It's 2015---and the world has become an unrecognizable place.
Katherine Mueller---crack shot, genius, and real Southern Belle---offers to help him find his way home. Can he convince her of the truth of his crazy story? Can he continue to trust her when he finds out she works for the very organization he's trying to flee?

Thrown right into pulse-pounding action from the first page, readers will find themselves transported back in time to a believable, full-colored past, and then catapulted into the present once more. The historical back-and-forth adds a constantly moving element of suspense to keep readers on the edge of their seats.

About the author:

Rick Barry is the author of Gunner's Run, another World War II novel, Kiriath's Quest, and over 200 articles and fiction stories. In addition to being a World War II buff, he is the director of church planting ministries at BIEM, a Christian ministry operating in Eastern Europe. He holds a degree in foreign languages, speaks Russian, and has visited Europe more than fifty times. Rick lives in Indianapolis, Indiana.

My Opinion

Lately, I have really wanted to branch out and read books that I wouldn't have normally been drawn to.

The Methuselah Project sounded very interesting to me and something new and unique and ended up being a mix of historical fiction and modern day fiction so it really was a mix of new and what I normally like to read.

However, the subject matter was so interesting and unique and really made me think "What if?" the entire book. It really drew me in and made me want to finish as fast as I could to see how the book ends! And then when it ended, I wanted a sequel to see how it continues! :)

The Methuselah Project was a mix of romance, intrigue, murder, faith, mystery, science, history and so much more! It really is a book for all readers of all kinds of genres and it is very well written and interesting! It really makes you think about life and the fountain of youth. Is it really something you would want? Is it worth what everyone in the history of time has sacrificed to find it?
