* I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
A hilarious and incredibly creative book that will have listeners laughing out loud and wanting to hear more.
Hired as a lowly security guard at a defunct FBI storage facility Chip Collins finds an old book in the drawer of an abandoned desk.
It turns out that the book is the Diary of Nikola Tesla who was a famous inventor. Inside the diary Tesla claims that he created something he calls a “Inter-dimensional Transfer Apparatus.” He includes the last known location of the device.
Chip, and his best friend, Pete, set out to find the “Inter-dimensional Transfer Apparatus.” The two bumbling fools literally fall into it.
What follows is a a terrific story. It is witty, funny, thought provoking and interesting.
Chip and Pete find themselves stuck in a hallway with an infinite number of doors that lead to an infinite number of possible dimensions.
Realizing that in their excitement they had forgotten to mark which doorway it was that they had entered through, they know they are in trouble. They need to figure out how to get home and along the way they need to save the infinisphere and all the possible worlds from being destroyed by an evil genius.
The nice thing about having the author act as the narrator for his audiobook is that he knows the story inside and out. He knows exactly how he wants to convey each scene and is able to inject subtle nuances into his narrative.
This book is written as if it were a story being told to Chip’s girlfriend through a series of emails. This allows the listener/reader to feel like they are truly seeing inside Chip’s mind. What could be more personal than a heartfelt email to someone you love who you aren’t sure you will ever see again?
Chip’s emails are full of humor and actually made me laugh out loud numerous times. For an audiobook to actually make me laugh (not just chuckle) is very rare. That feat takes some serious skill, both by the author and the narrator.
I highly recommend this audiobook. I am sure that reading the book would be enjoyable as well, but I think the best way to experience WHERE THE HELL IS TESLA? is through the audiobook format.
I rate both the book and the narration as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
