Seventy years later, Roger has not aged a day, but has almost gone insane with what he has lived through. He soon finds out that the Bible and His faith are the only thing that will get him through this. Can he convince his new-found friend, Katherine Mueller the truth about himself?
I thought The Methuselah Project by Rick Barry was an interesting read. In some ways, this story reminded me of a superhero/Captain America kind of movie since it shared certain similarities. But I do think this author put a pretty creative spin on it. It's super suspenseful which I absolutely loved! The best books are the kind that keep you on the edge of your seat trying to guess what will happen next, and I feel like this author accomplished that. I rate this book as 4 stars.
I received this book for free from Litfuse in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
~ What ~
Covering over seven decades, Captain Roger Greene finds himself in a precarious position when he is shot down during World War II and becomes a war prisoner in Germany. But this is no ordinary prison. It is the Methuselah Project run by a rogue organization that experiments on soldiers, trying to extend their lives to a thousand years, and Roger is the only one who has survived.
A young woman named Katherine, who has connections with the Heritage Organization, is unknowingly caught up in the situation when she helps Roger escape from being hunted down in America.
The chase is on with Roger having to verify his identity before the organization catches up with him to make sure no one knows of the scientific “fountain of youth” discovery. Turning often to God for help, the two try convince others the old man with an energetic, athletic body is not crazy.
~ Why ~
The book starts in 1943 and takes the reader to present day where much has changed in the world. I found it engaging for the main character to have been misled and unaware what has happened while he was confined and remained youthful.
~ Why Not ~
Containing no profanity or overtly sexual scenes, topics of murder, death, and war may not be appropriate for immature readers.
~ Who ~
Having authored two other novels and written over two-hundred articles, WWII buff Barry is the director of BIEM, a Christian organization in Europe. He lives in Indiana.
~ Wish ~
The novel was quick and entertaining but a little predictable as it raced toward the abrupt ending. I wish there could be a sequel to what happens next in Roger and Katherine’s lives.
~ Want ~
If you like a blend of the past involving German Nazi ideals with a touch of romance, conspiracy, and intrigue, this is a great selection. Several times I got caught up in the story, wondering if it could realistically happen.
Thanks to Kregel Publishing for furnishing this complimentary book in exchange for a review based on the reviewer’s honest opinion.
