Publisher's Summary

Boldly go to times where no one has gone before. While transporting a contraband Russian time machine and developmental weaponry, Private Everett Dumphee finds himself cast into new settings when the device suddenly activates. What follows are fantastic high-tech experiences that might be called the ultimate off-road adventure. For the determined Dumphee - narrowly escaping with his life and three beautiful women - it is not necessarily a matter of will he make his destination, but when. These four vivid characters trek through this fun and fast-moving journey like there's no tomorrow. Wherever that may be.

Critic Reviews

"L. Ron Hubbard wrote successfully in almost every genre imaginable, so it only makes sense that he tried his hand at lighthearted satire. In this 1999 novelization of an original Hubbard screenplay, character actor Tait Ruppert has a gleeful time playing the clueless but always-intrepid West Virginia moonshiner’s son, Everett Dumphee, who accidentally turns on a covert military time machine and takes off into the past. His adventures include wooing Native American maidens and battling saber-toothed tigers. Galaxy Press has added a bed of realistic, film-like sound effects and a complete musical score to keep the action hopping, while a host of Hollywood voice talents provides good pacing and comic-book voices to this playful spoof of everything sci-fi."

"A wild, high-tech ride through time. Read it to have a rollicking good time." (Brian Herbert, co-author Dune: House Attreides)

Great experience

This was the best audible book I have listened to. Dave Wolverton has done a great job with Hubbard's story. I will be looking for more like this. The voice charactrizations and background sounds make for a most enjoyable experience. Thank you Audible.

Simple Entertainment

Light hearted look at the adventures of a mountain man who skips thru time.
Science fiction is just vehicle for the narrative. The story centers on Private Dumphey and the "wives" he collects early on in the adventure and how they overcome adversity in the times visited while coming to terms with military technology and concepts which you expect is beyond them.
Great performance.

Audible rip off

Would you try another book written by L. Ron Hubbard and Dave Wolverton or narrated by the narrators?


What other book might you compare A Very Strange Trip to, and why?

Kismet's Taxi by F.W.Walker. Similar theme, different story.

Any additional comments?

I have no record of ordering audio. Do not appreciate being scammed for something I never ordered.

Indeed a very strange trip

What a fantastic audiobook! I listened to it for my commute to and from work everyday. Couldn't wait to get in the car in the morning for the next installment of this exciting and indeed 'trippy' book. 5 out of 5.
