Jim is an ordinary man of our time. He's unexpectedly transported 2,000 years into the future. He and his two sons, with a rental truck packed with the contents of their house, cause a major sensation with the population of that future time. Due to wars, politics, and age, little knowledge exists of the time Jim came from in the early 21st century. His gift to them is knowledge of a long forgotten past. He has one problem; someone is trying to kill him for what he knows.

ill let others give the story review.
I don't hand out stars out easy but when I do you can count on it.

As science fiction goes this is not a technical masterpiece. The main character, Jim, ends up transported to a quite unlikely future that is far too similar to our present. Yet this turns out to be a very entertaining romp, half satire and half comic adventure. Highly recommended for pure fun and the great skill of the reader.
Yes I would and I already have.
Risking a spoiler here – The beautiful beach resort. The preceding chapter was about a dismal depressing ugly planet. The sudden transition to relaxing and attractive was striking.
The regional accents were so accurate.
Will look for the sequel.
Yes I would, I've already played it twice. The writer and narrator have created a book that draws you in and has you imagining you are there.
Levin - he reminds me of a very good friend of mine. The character is highly intelligent with definite Asperger's syndrome. Both writer and narrator portrayed the disability extremely accurately.
I clicked on Mr. Burnette's page but the entries were in technical fields where I had no interest. I'm hoping he does the sequel to this book as well which is currently in kindle.
When the criminal gang was killing all the hero's good friends to get at him.
Will wait for the audio book of the sequel. If it doesn't come up in a couple of months I will get the kindle.
"Brilliant fun read"
Wasn't sure at first, but I was glad I Persisted ! Imaginative fun story with a few nice twist's
I would recommend it.
Don't think I have read anything quite like it really.
His voice and rendering of the words suited the story line very well.
It was quite long so I listened over several days.
Just really good fun, and maybe thought provoking too.
