Publisher's Summary

These are the continuing adventures of Barack Obama and Joe Biden, time-traveling superheroes on an epic journey to turn the tide of history, bromancing spacetime together in search of a brighter future for America.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. 

Moments after the inauguration of our 45th president, best friends Barack Obama and Joe Biden were escorted to a secret lab run by the world’s greatest scientists. They were asked to take off all their clothes and hold very still in a fetal position until they felt a painful tingling sensation. Then they vanished. They would awake to find themselves apart, and inside their younger bodies and driven to find each other, and to change history for the better. Their only guide on this journey is Neil deGrasse Tyson, a scientist from the present who appears in the form of an augmented reality that only they can see and hear. And thus they find themselves leaping throughout their own lifetime, looking for the best in people...striving to right injustice wherever they find it, forever hoping that their next jump in time will take them to a future that’s not scary and broken on a quest for a world which they can proudly call…home. 

The brainchild of director Adam Reid, born out of his deep frustration after the 2016 election and launched via Kickstarter, The Adventures of Barry & Joe is a nostalgia-hued science fiction tale celebrating the greatest bromance in modern history, that of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

This audiobook is a love letter to cheesy science fiction and the two men who can still be counted on to inspire us - an adventure that will melt your snowflake brain and give you hope for humanity at the same time.

This is a Crazy, Fun Ride

This is less of a novel and more of a series of vignettes with a narrative through stream. At times tedious, for the most part this is a fun and funny romp that lampoons time travel, classic science fiction, Zombies, the Apocalypse, and modern politics. Sound impossible? it isn't. This book is consistently funny and there are moments where you will laugh HARD. I am dinging the evaluation of the story itself because one section goes on WAY too long. (No spoilers. You'll know). Push on through that, because the book as a whole is well worth the journey. Prepare to laugh.

Dynamic and hysterically fun!

I'm having a difficult time figuring out which version of Barry & Joe I love more -- the actual book or the audio book. It's so great when author's get to do their own stuff. Adam Reid's performance is dynamic and hysterically fun. And it's read with so much energy and heart that it flies by. Entertaining, smart and irreverent. Highly recommend!!
