Synopsis (from the author): When runaway teenagers Don and Janet pull off the mountainside road just outside of Albuquerque for a few hours’ rest, they don’t expect to wake up 1000 years in the future, in a world they can’t recognize.
There, Earth is a desert planet where nomadic tribes are little more than slaves to the Ganu, the powerful and dominant ruling tribe.
When the young couple is befriended by a small tribe, and Don is hailed as their mythical and prophesied savior, they must use all their cunning and resourcefulness to defeat a powerful, cruel enemy and save the lives of their new friends.
What I liked: The story of the runaways swept me up right away. I identified with their desire to get away and chase their dreams. The arrival in the future to a very grim environment was pretty cool, and the bugs that attacked them were excellent. I enjoyed the adventures with the car and the nomads who befriend the pair are great. The battle scene was satisfying, too. All told, a wonderful short read!
What I didn’t like: I prefer books that tie up loose ends. For me, it was never clear why the car horn or the dog whistle had the effects that they did. The ending was a bit contrived for me, too.
Overall impression: This was a nice read for my travels. It isn’t too long and wasn’t burdened down with unnecessary details. The story moves along nicely, and the characters are easy to identify with and root for in their battles. Great fun read!
My rating: 4.5 Stars (rounded to 5 Stars)
The year is 1991. Quick-witted, independent teen lovers Don Giroux and Janet Bartinski have run away together, bolting before high school graduation from their Kansas home town. They head toward Anaheim, California, where the promise of a computer programming job draws Don, and where they intend to be married. During an overnight stop in the hills above Albuquerque, Don and Janet accidentally tumble into The Twilight Zone.
It seems they've made the mother of all wrong turns, caught in a time portal that will strand them in a thoroughly-realized and populated apocalyptic landscape centuries ahead of their own time. But they don't flounder for long. Janet's pluck and common sense, along with Don's clever gamer skills, make for a wild, surprising, and uniquely fulfilling adventure for these two devoted teens.
I thoroughly enjoyed WE JOURNEY NO MORE, but although a YA book, it does have some fairly explicit sexual content that makes it most appropriate for older teens and up. There were a few references that seemed a little jarring; for example, an allusion to 1960s TV show "The Rat Patrol" would not likely be familiar to 1990s teens – or 2015 teens, for that matter. (Unless, of course, there's some sort of "Rat Patrol" video game I'm unaware of, in which case – my bad!) I would also love to know what Don bought at K-mart with future needs in mind, so I hope there'll be a sequel!
Overall, this is an exciting, well-written, and fast-paced story with satisfying, appealing young characters who bravely step up to the plate together to meet daunting challenges.
In their new time, they discover that a future war wiped out all civilization so that now just a few humans live within a zone that is not contaminated by radiation. Outside, in the poison zone, live the mutants. These future humans have lost their technology and history thus becoming superstitious and naïve. Technology exists only as a form of magic and words are believed to have magical power. Of course before long, Donny and Janet work to save their new friends from the ritual laws of this future world. Janet plays a strong lead and is a good role model four young women.
The contrast between Donny and Janet’s reality and the new reality of the future creates a perfect landscape for plays on words and puns that add a touch of humor to this saga.
Although the book is easily classed as young adult, it does raise some questions about humanity, and what it means to have the rights, responsibilities and privileges of an adult. I enjoyed it very much and read it in one sitting.
