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.

Fabulous accidental find....

Stumbled across this somehow....
Lack of reviews was off putting....
I thoroughly enjoyed it, it’s very very original and very amusing.
Yes, it’s reminiscent of Bill and Ted...but I didn’t really enjoy Bill and Ted....
I loved this though, the story, the characters ....everything, a modern much better, much funnier, much much better than B and T.
Highly recommend it.
I’ve since bought and listened to the next book in the series which if anything is better....and the stand alone The wrong unit, which was different but astoundingly good.

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
