The Methuselah Project review
"The Methuselah Project" by Rick Barry follows Roger Greene, a WWII fighter pilot who was shot down in Germany. He was taken prisoner by the Reich and used in the Methuselah Project, which was experiments to achieve a super soldier. A soldier that healed miraculously quick and didn't age. Roger was held prisoner until 2015 when he finally escaped and came to the United States. Katherine is an American woman in her early twenties who works for the modern day Nazi Party called the Heritage Order. However, she doesn't have any knowledge of the what the Order actually does. She is assigned to watch Roger and bring him in until her uncle, a high level member, returns from a hunting trip in Africa. The story idea is great, however, the middle tends to drag. That would be the only negative I could give. The end reads similar to a Bourne novel. Lots of excitement and drama. I really like the beginning and the end. I received this book in exchange for a review from The Book Club Network.
