THE HELMET OF THE FUTURE

OUT OF THE FRYING PAN AND INTO THE FIRE
The story itself is extremely predictable. I got this because I am a huge fan of Richard Matheson, but he didn't earn his money on this one.

John Rhys-Davis who was in Sliders and the Dwarf in Lord Of The Rings, does an excellent job as narrator.

- Jim "The Impatient" "My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books."

A time travel story

Time travel from 1890 to the 21st century. Life isn't so bad when we see what others live with. This story is a humorous view of the problems a curmudgeon has when he jumps forward to our time. Quick story and great performance.

- Tina "I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel."
