Hundreds of years in the future, humans have spread out across the universe, discovering and settling new worlds. But along the way, they have forgotten their origin. Why has the past been forgotten? What clues could help uncover the mystery of mankind's beginnings? And why does the quest become dangerous? The adventure unfolds in Brock Eastman's Quest for Truth series, as archaeologists Elliot and Laura Wikk are mysteriously kidnapped in the midst of their search for mankind's origins.
Determined to find and rescue their parents, young Oliver Wikk and his siblings dodge danger and uncover clues of their own, finding themselves drawn as much to the search for truth as to the search for their parents.

Audio books are growing. I have listened to books for months now, But I prefer my books in paperback/hardback format.
I don't listen to books like this at all. This my first time EVER listening to a space book. All in all it was an alright story. Would I listen to it over no. But the story line was well written and I think its a great story for children.

If it weren't for physics, law enforcement, and my medication, I'd be unstoppable!
For anyone that has a morning commute, or if you just have some time to kill, this is a good short that anyone can enjoy.
The main character is getting ready to take pivotal flight test that his career at the Naval Academy depends on. He visits the simulator on the night before the test to get one final practice session in. When his simulation ends, a glitch in the computer gives him the option to take the examination simulation in instructor mode. Barely passing the course, he is faced with the dilemma of possibly failing the course, or sacrificing his morals and cheating...
This was definitely more of a young adult science fiction story, but I think just about anyone can enjoy it. The simulation scene was exciting, and I wish the whole story could have been longer.
Narration was good as well. Enjoy!
I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.
I would recommend this to a friend because it fills in Oliver's past. There's a lot of action packed into a 30-minute audiobook.
I like that while it showed what life was like for Oliver before the Quest for Truth, it also had a moral to it.
My favorite scene is when he's faced with a difficult decision. It really shows Oliver's character.
Excellent story within the story.

Excellent story within the story. Adds additional insight to the characters in TQ4T series. Can wait for book 5. The family loves these stories and are always looking forward for the next edition.
Yes, this is a great story for kids (boys especially).
The twist at the end
Draws you in to Eastman's creative world, and makes you think.
Only hope their will be more auidobooks of Eastman's work.
It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
TRUTHFUL TEST was an excellent short science fiction story for children written by BROCK EASTMAN. There was a lesson to be learned here. When Oliver noticed the glitch, he could've very well cheated and passed the test but instead, he took a chance and did the right thing. The glitch was actually the test and those who used it and cheated didn't pass. Great story and I know my grandsons will love it. Plus I hope there's more to follow.
LC LANE had the perfect voice for this story. She gave it a nice touch with excellent reading skills. This was a great combination of author/narrator.

Several in our family listened to this and all thought it was great. So me were disappointed it wasn't a longer story. I, the mom, appreciated the value being taught and reinforced. I liked that you included listening to the wisdom of parents and following the "gut" feeling of something being wrong. However, I didn't particularly like the narration, it was choppy and almost sounded like a computer. I also thought a male voice would have been better because this is Oliver's story. Thanks again for an action packed,meaningful story that all of us enjoyed!
