Listen to the Free First Chapter of A Very Strange Trip.
©1999 L. Ron Hubbard, Dave Wolverton (P)2011 Galaxy Audio
"L. Ron Hubbard wrote successfully in almost every genre imaginable, so it only makes sense that he tried his hand at lighthearted satire. In this 1999 novelization of an original Hubbard screenplay, character actor Tait Ruppert has a gleeful time playing the clueless but always-intrepid West Virginia moonshiner’s son, Everett Dumphee, who accidentally turns on a covert military time machine and takes off into the past. His adventures include wooing Native American maidens and battling saber-toothed tigers. Galaxy Press has added a bed of realistic, film-like sound effects and a complete musical score to keep the action hopping, while a host of Hollywood voice talents provides good pacing and comic-book voices to this playful spoof of everything sci-fi."

"A wild, high-tech ride through time. Read it to have a rollicking good time." (Brian Herbert, co-author Dune: House Attreides)
This was the best audible book I have listened to. Dave Wolverton has done a great job with Hubbard's story. I will be looking for more like this. The voice charactrizations and background sounds make for a most enjoyable experience. Thank you Audible.
Light hearted look at the adventures of a mountain man who skips thru time.
Science fiction is just vehicle for the narrative. The story centers on Private Dumphey and the "wives" he collects early on in the adventure and how they overcome adversity in the times visited while coming to terms with military technology and concepts which you expect is beyond them.
I have listened to this audio book about ten times and it still is entertaining. I recommend this audio book with its talented cast
The audio version of this book is great! The background noise effects made me feel I was right there with the characters in this hilarious book.
All the characters are quite believable, especially the protagonist.
I have already recommended this book to people who enjoy light, fantastic, entertaining stories.
"Audible rip off"
Kismet's Taxi by F.W.Walker. Similar theme, different story.
I have no record of ordering audio. Do not appreciate being scammed for something I never ordered.
"Indeed a very strange trip"
What a fantastic audiobook! I listened to it for my commute to and from work everyday. Couldn't wait to get in the car in the morning for the next installment of this exciting and indeed 'trippy' book. 5 out of 5.
