When runaway teenagers Don and Janet pull off the mountainside road just outside of Albuquerque for a few hours' rest, they don't expect to wake up 1000 years in the future, in a world they can't recognize.
There, Earth is a desert planet where nomadic tribes are little more than slaves to the Ganu, the powerful and dominant ruling tribe.
When the young couple is befriended by a small tribe, and Don is hailed as their mythical and prophesied savior, they must use all their cunning and resourcefulness to defeat a powerful, cruel enemy and save the lives of their new friends.

I love almost anything post-apocalyptic, zombie, scifi, ect. Always looking for some new earhole entertainment!
This is a great story of two older teens who ended up over 1000 years in the future and over 900 years after a great cataclysm. Some humans survived while other humans and all of the animals have mutated. I absolutely loved this story but I wasn't too crazy about the narration.
I'm a technology teacher and love all kinds of books.
This is one of the most different books I have listened to in quite a while. I honestly had no idea where the story was going, but it turned out really good - well worth a listen. The title does actually sum up the fact that this was a journey and that it had all kinds of twists and turns that I don't think the characters wanted to make.
The narrator did an outstanding job of reading and the writer led me on a fun adventure that was very interesting yet thoughtful.

What a fun story! I loved the premise and felt that Foley did a great job executing it. I laughed out loud at the " petroleum jelly" part, and loved that Don was more embarrassed than Janet.
The narration took a bit to get used to. I think the feeling I had was that it was kind of robotic. There was a change in tone for each character, which was really good. It was the in between narration that felt a little stiff.
I was lost in the story by the second chapter and have to say that I would definately recommend this to my other reader friends!
We sell Vintage and Retro items on line. We teach children urban gardening and robotics. Traveling around the USA is our favorite hobby.
This is a very good older YA story with lots of action and fighting. The sex is a little graphic, which is why I say Older YA. The story appeals to Adults too. It depends on your genre preference.
Don and Janet are sleeping in their car that is engulfed in a time portal. They wake up in their car and are now in the apocalyptic future. Luckily, Don and Janet come across a tribe that helps them. The superstitious tribe thinks technology is magic and that Don is the savior from a tribal prophecy. Don and Janet help them by using their common knowledge from the past. Janet is a strong female lead. I like that. It is not all about Don. There is a great balance between both of these characters.
There are crazy rituals and laws. Don and Janet are going to help change things. Mutants are running around. I just want to say…..Those are some VERY fast lizards. I think the fact that the car made it into the future with them inside was a nice idea to include. In stories of this genre, the biological bodies are the only ones that make it through portals. That is one tough car.
This is a very good story that is like combining "The Time Machine", "Mad Max", "Dune" and “The Signal" with Lawrence Fishburne. Of course, it is definitely different from all of these stories. A story with the computer geek and his girlfriend taking a trip and waking up in a possible future is a little familiar.
I really liked this story. I have referred this to several friends that like this type of post war survival themes. I was wondering if the fact that the planets are different might mean that they are in an alternate or parallel dimension. That idea kind of stuck in the back of my mind at one point.

Yes I would recommend this
Never quite sure what's around the next corner. Who or what you might encounter. I laughed when Don thought bad baloney could be the problem, not liking baloney myself I could understand that. Must listen story if you like fantasy, sci-fi.

I am addicted to books. Nothing makes me happier than crawling inside a good book.
For me, this book was slow taking off but once they got to the camp it started picking up. I enjoyed the ingenuity of the battle plan and the weapons. I wouldn't mind seeing a follow up book to complete the story.

I enjoyed listening to this book. Don and Janet somehow end up traveling through time and wind up in a future world after an apocalyptic event. Hormones raging and some 17+ material though not too graphic, I did find myself scrambling for the volume rocker in front of my 8 year old once (so heed this warning!).
Narration was pretty good. Most of the voices were discernable from each other. I found the conversations to be pretty straightforward and I did wonder on occasion if people really spoke in this manner. Then I remembered hearing conversations involving teens, and suddenly the plausibility factor grew exponentially.
The book is only a little more than 5 hours long, so the author doesn't have a lot of time to answer all of the questions that come up. Why things work, how/why something happened, etc. I don't really like when books end with so many questions, but in this case, it really didn't take away from the story.
The book was pretty fast paced throughout. Pretty good descriptive writing and some good character development. Not a lot of time is spent building the scenery or the backstories. But in a book like this, I consider that a good thing.
Definitely an interesting idea, and fun to go through the adventure with Don and Janet.
I received a free copy of this audio book for an honest review.
Unsure, since haven't seen the print version.
The characters and plot of this story, time travel.
An interesting time travel story.
I like big books and I cannot lie.
From the artwork and description of the book I thought it was going to be YA. However, I double checked after the adult situations the kids (16&17) were in when I first started listening. I now see that it is not listed as such on here. I like the story but struggled with the narration. I don't think a narrator with a deep, monotone, adult voice was the best choice for narrating these kids. These are modern teens who didn't come across as such (to me) because of the disconnection I felt with the narration. I think a female narrator would have been better suited.I would have enjoyed this book much better sitting down and reading it for that reason. After I get that voice out of my head I will give it a try.
