Publisher's Summary

Hundreds of years in the future, humans have spread out across the universe, discovering and settling new worlds. But along the way, they have forgotten their origin. Why has the past been forgotten? What clues could help uncover the mystery of mankind's beginnings? And why does the quest become dangerous? The adventure unfolds in Brock Eastman's Quest for Truth series, as archaeologists Elliot and Laura Wikk are mysteriously kidnapped in the midst of their search for mankind's origins.

Determined to find and rescue their parents, young Oliver Wikk and his siblings dodge danger and uncover clues of their own, finding themselves drawn as much to the search for truth as to the search for their parents.

trustful test

I don't listen to books like this at all. This my first time EVER listening to a space book. All in all it was an alright story. Would I listen to it over no. But the story line was well written and I think its a great story for children.

Such a great mini-story in the TQ4T universe!

Loved the story. Wished it didn't end so quickly. :-)

Narrator was great.

Yet another of Brock Eastman's superb books!

Good Short Story for All Ages

For anyone that has a morning commute, or if you just have some time to kill, this is a good short that anyone can enjoy.

The main character is getting ready to take pivotal flight test that his career at the Naval Academy depends on. He visits the simulator on the night before the test to get one final practice session in. When his simulation ends, a glitch in the computer gives him the option to take the examination simulation in instructor mode. Barely passing the course, he is faced with the dilemma of possibly failing the course, or sacrificing his morals and cheating...

This was definitely more of a young adult science fiction story, but I think just about anyone can enjoy it. The simulation scene was exciting, and I wish the whole story could have been longer.
Narration was good as well. Enjoy!

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Great Prequel!

Love the whole series to death, and this is a perfect prequel--entirely consistent with the main series, but doesn't depend on it for resolution. It's such a good story in its own right, too! Half ethical conflict, half action-adventure--even after multiple readings, I still can't make myself remember that the simulation is just a simulation when I'm in the middle of it. (For the record, that's not a spoiler; the story starts with Oliver entering the simulator, which makes the fact that it doesn't feel like a simulation all the more amazing.) The whole setting and feel of the story also remind me of some old sci-fi kids' radio dramas that I've listened to and enjoyed.

Highly recommended for Quest of Truth fans, but it's a great standalone story for those who haven't read the main series as well!

Truthful Test

This was an awesome prequel to the Quest for Truth series. I loved how it showed the importance of morals and how it told you what happened before Taken.

Great Book Showing Oliver's Backstory!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to a friend because it fills in Oliver's past. There's a lot of action packed into a 30-minute audiobook.

What did you like best about this story?

I like that while it showed what life was like for Oliver before the Quest for Truth, it also had a moral to it.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene is when he's faced with a difficult decision. It really shows Oliver's character.

This Was A Good Short Sci Fi With A Lesson

TRUTHFUL TEST was an excellent short science fiction story for children written by BROCK EASTMAN. There was a lesson to be learned here. When Oliver noticed the glitch, he could've very well cheated and passed the test but instead, he took a chance and did the right thing. The glitch was actually the test and those who used it and cheated didn't pass. Great story and I know my grandsons will love it. Plus I hope there's more to follow.

LC LANE had the perfect voice for this story. She gave it a nice touch with excellent reading skills. This was a great combination of author/narrator.

Great Story

Where does Truthful Test: An Oliver Wikk Adventure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Excellent story within the story. Adds additional insight to the characters in TQ4T series. Can wait for book 5. The family loves these stories and are always looking forward for the next edition.
