The Methuselah Project By Rick Barry GIVEAWAY!

In World War II, German scientists began 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 provides 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.

My Thoughts...
I had a very hard time getting into this book. I struggled really hard to read it.
I think that may have been because it was just not my favorite genre.
It's a book for those who are fans of war reads and sci-fi and adventure reads.
I  hope that you will give it a try if you are a historical,  war fan.
The Mary Reader received this book from the author for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.


  1. This sounds like that would be more up my dad or husband's alley than mine. I may add it to a list of books to get them. Thank you for sharing your thoughts :-)

  2. I don't know if I will be able to ferry into this one

  3. Sounds like one that I will want to read. Thanks Mary

  4. I am not into war books at all. So I might just pass on this one.

  5. Thanks but no thanks not my kind of read.

  6. I will be reading this one, yes I said me. My wife has enough to read for a long while. I need some good ones.

    1. Jon, I am going to send you this copy to enjoy!

  7. I thinking that this is not one that I would enjoy reading. Is it 0 stars Mary?

  8. Nice of you to share this with us.

  9. A sci-fi with a twist of faith? Hmmmmmm......I don't think that I would like this one. Like Mary, though, this is not in my genre but it does sound like something that someone of the sci-fi genre would enjoy.

  10. Looks interesting! Thanks for the review.

  11. I have this on my Kindle (yet-to-read). I've not read a lot of books set in WW2 time. I think if the author did their research right, it would be a wealth of history! :-) I may have to move this one up on my TBR list. Thanks for the review Mary!

  12. I have this on my Kindle that I've been meaning to read. I love anything to do with WW2 so I'll read it one of these days. Thanks for the review!
