The Methuselah Project (Review)
This review is for the book "The Methuselah Project" by Rick Barry.
This was by far one of the most interesting book concepts I have ever come across. The book begins in Nazi Germany with Roger Greene being shot down by enemy planes. He soon finds himself an unwilling participant in a Nazi experiment.
The book quickly flip-flops to present day America, following Katherine Mueller and her uncle, who are involved in some top-secret organization. I was very curious to see how these two stories were going to come together. Trust me, when it started coming together, it was completely intruiging.
Roger was an experiment in something called The Methuselah Project. Most people know Methusaleh because he was the oldest person recorded in the Bible. The Nazi regime was attempting to experiment on humans to see if they could create some kind of indestructible person, a fountain of youth of sorts.
So in 2015, Roger Greene is in his 90's - but does not look a day older than when he first landed in Nazi Germany. He is able to escape from his prison but the world is not as he left it so many decades ago. He is also in danger because of the Germans in charge of the experiment.
I really enjoyed this book. It was thrilling and captivating, and I have never read another book like it.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
