Book Review The Methuselah Project

Book Review The Methuselah Project
Author Rick Barry artfully weaves the best elements of historical and contemporary fiction, suspense, science fiction, and romance into one intriguing novel. Every element fits together into a sci-fi story that is strangely believable.

The action begins with the first page. We are pulled into the life of a World War II fighter pilot while simultaneously learning of the young woman who would be his future. Suspense builds as two eras move closer together until they eventually collide.

Raised in an orphanage, Roger Greene dreamed of flying—a longing fulfilled when he became a WWII flying ace. The dream is side-tracked when he is shot down over Nazi Germany in 1943. Instead of the expected prisoner of war camp, Captain Roger Greene is thrust into a life he could never have expected. He becomes the unwilling participant in a mad scientist’s experiment to create a fountain of youth. Dr. Blomberg’s treatments succeed in enabling Roger’s body to regenerate cells, heal wounds almost instantly, and resist aging. After seventy years of captivity, having outlived Dr. Blomberg, Captain Greene still appears as youthful as the day of his capture. Year after year, Roger lives in a cell, his only solace found in reading the classics and an old Bible.

It’s the year 2015 when Greene finally escapes his captors and runs into the unrecognizable world of modern technology. Things start looking up when he succeeds in convincing a beautiful Southern Belle of the truth of this unbelievable story. She’s seems to be the only one who can help him keep his freedom and find his way home. But is Katherine Mueller who she seems to be? Can he trust her once he discovers she works for the organization that kept him captive?

Captivating for the reader from the first page to the last.

Rick Barry is author of another World War II novel--Gunner’s Run, and fantasy fiction--Kiriath’s Quest, as well as hundreds of articles, devotions, and fiction stories. He is the director of church planting ministries at BIEM, a Christian ministry operating in Eastern Europe.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
