My review: 4 of 5 stars
Imagine being held captive as a POW for 70 years and never aging. Such is the premise of The Methuselah Project. Because we know that Nazis performed medical experiments on humans, the idea of the story isn’t as unbelievable as one might think. Though the science was vague and unconvincing at times, The Methuselah Project remained fascinating as a narrative. Despite stilted and awkward dialogue which improved as the story progressed, there was unexpected and welcome humor to counter the darkness of the story. The characters are conceived in such a way that it isn’t always easy to connect with them. Nevertheless, they each demonstrate intelligence, humor, and courage which makes the reader root for them. Though I found holes in the story and had many unanswered questions, The Methuselah Project was still a page-turner with a unique and entertaining premise.
