Publisher's Summary

Sci-fi odyssey. Comedy. Love story. And of course, Nikola Tesla. 
I'll let Chip, the main character, tell you more: "I found the journal at work. Well, I don't know if you'd call it work, but that's where I found it. It's the lost journal of Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors and visionaries ever. Before he died in 1943, he kept a notebook filled with spectacular claims and outrageous plans. One of these plans was for an “INTERDIMENSIONAL TRANSFER APPARATUS" – that allowed someone (in this case me and my friend Pete) to travel to other versions of the infinite possibilities around us. Crazy, right? But that's just where the crazy starts." 
Chip's Official Disclaimer: This is a work of fiction. The events depicted in the collection of emails did not happen. I have never been in contact with a covert government group attempting to suppress knowledge of the lost journal of Nikola Tesla. I have not been threatened with death if I divulge the secrets contained inside. They did not buy me this handsome jacket (oh crap, you're listening to this - trust me, it looks great on me). They did not come to my place, and liquor me up, and offer to publish this book as a sci-fi comedy novel to throw the public off the trail of the real truth. 
Or did they? 
I'm kidding. Of course they didn't. 
Or did they? 
God, I can't keep my big mouth shut.

Had A Blast Listening To This One!


Wow, one of the funniest stories I've listened too this year! I loved the adventures of Chip and Pete! The plot and characters were hilarious! This is one of those stories no matter what type of mood you are in, as soon as you start playing it, you are guaranteed a smile, and a laugh. I'm definitely keeping this story on my iPad for days I need a pick me up or a good laugh.

Not only was the story AWESOME, the narration was PERFECT! I'm skeptical about authors who narrate their own stories (I've heard a few bad ones), but Rob Dirks totally nails it! I know he delivered this story just like he imagined it, and you can hear and feel the passion he has for both the story, and characters. I can't imagine anyone not liking this one!

Absolutely worth a credit and the time!

Great adventure story

I like to get my geek on with alternative universes involving historical characters. This fits the bill. This was in my wish list for a long time and I am sorry about that because it was an enjoyable adventure about alternate universes. I don't like comparing with other other authors but it was a cross between the excitement of Peter Clines and the heart of John Scalzi. Not quite there yet, but enough to be really enjoyable. The only thing that might put it over the top is if Wil Wheaton would have narrated. The author did a good job it's just these are the kind of characters Wheaton really embodies.

Review

Would you consider the audio edition of Where the Hell is Tesla? to be better than the print version?

Yes.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nikola Tesla, because he lived up to his real life counterpart and it didn't affect history with the way that the book was written.

What does Rob Dircks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Funny humour and inflection
