Publisher's Summary

Brothers from different mothers, bromancing history to save us from Trump.These are the continuing adventures of Barack Obama and Joe Biden, time traveling superheroes in search of a brighter future for America.

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 - driven to find each other and change history for the better. Their faithful guide on this journey is Samuel L. Jackson, a brilliant actor 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 through time, striving to right injustice wherever they find it, looking for a world which they can proudly call home.

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!!

Great Fun

If you miss Obama and Biden like me, you’ll love this book. I bought the graphic novel too since I love the art. At first I thought it might be hard to follow as an audiobook but the author brings the pages to life with a great read. At times it actually made me laugh out loud (something to do with a muffin if I remember correctly). If you’re angry at the state of American politics, this will help you lighten up and have a good laugh. I found it to be great fun. Introspective and nostalgic as well as heartfelt and hilarious.
