Roger Green was shot down in Germany in 1943.  He was taken prisoner and was an unwilling participant of an experiment.  He has lived for seventy years as a prisoner, and the scientist who has taken care of him for all these years has passed away.  He hasn’t aged a bit and has no knowledge of what has really been happening in the world.  He has read lots of historical books.  He has also read the Bible, which has helped him all these years.  He wants to escape, but when he does the world is unrecognizable.  It is 2015.

Katherine Mueller has always lived in the modern world, so when they meet, she questions what he believes.  He is running from the group who has kept him hidden for all these years.  Katherine is part of the group who has hidden him and is now looking for him.

Will they be able to work together?  Will Katherine turn him in to her organization?  Will Roger be able to adjust to his new world?

My thoughts-

World War II is a subject that interests me, and this book was very interesting.  I think The Methuselah Project would make a perfect movie.  When I finished reading this book, I had to go find my husband and tell him all about it.  I could not believe how much I could remember and how I wished I could read more.

Dr. Kossler, the man who took care of Roger Green (POW), for all those years was intriguing.  I thought that he was intriguing, because although he did not tell Roger the truth about the end of World War II, (Roger thought WW II was still being fought) Dr. Kossler treated him very well.  Dr. Kossler brought him books to read, kept him company, and made sure Roger had what he needed.  He believed in the project.  Dr. Kossler’s new assistants did not believe in the Methuselah Project and did not treat Roger respectfully.

Katherine, even though she was a part of the group who was trying to capture him, had great integrity and knew when to stand up to the people in her organization, who were trying to kill Roger.

My favorite part of the book took place after Roger escaped from the house in Germany, made it to the United States, and was with Katherine.  It was fun going with them on their journey as they learned more about Roger’s past.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  I recommend it to everyone, but especially men.
