What would you do if your son and his dog disappeared into a rip in space-time? Would you risk everything and follow? One father did. Join Willie in his race across time and space to save his son. Along the way he finds he may be the only one who can also save the universe. The only things standing in his way are the causality cops, a hoard of zombies, a cosmic junkyard, Blue Heaven, and the Intron.
The fabric that holds reality together is able to tear apart, destroy the very sequence of time. If one desperate father can't stop it, all that ever was or will be shall be lost. Willie quickly finds himself wishing he was anywhere but here.
Anywhere But Here was a very fast paced quick listen that could have been expanded upon to fill 300-400 pages or 8 or more hours. It is a tale of the love that a father feels for his family and especially his son, and what the father is willing to do for them. With almost every imaginable science fiction element including but not limited to zombies, time travel, superior alien beings. You would think with all of that going on that this would feel cramped, but it didn't there was the overall time travel theme with snippets of everything else. After listening to Anywhere But Here I am intrigued to find more from Edward J. McFadden III as he seems to have a handle on how to develop interesting relatable characters that get into compromising and fun, for the listener, situations.

Yes, I am surprised by how exciting this story got! The entire book had something important happening in it.

When Shogun & Willie made it to Blue Heaven and found the Kyle was indeed there. I found this to be very touching. When they got to see Kyle, Kyles first words were See, I told you the ball disappeared!

I didn't laugh or cry, but was very touched by Willies & Beth's reactions when Kyle was safe. Indy (the dog) was pretty cool too!
Any additional comments?
I enjoyed listening to this story! I loved the voice used for Shogun, it sounded like I would imagine it should (futuristic). The book is so action-packed, that you don't dare miss a minute of it! Kudos to both the author Edward J. McFadden III for writing such a great story & to the narrator Jack de Golia for delivering this story so well!
