Author: Joshua Light
An atheist and a Christian work with powerful superconductors to tear a hole in space, and also tear a hole in time. A greedy lab partner wants it all, so pitches the atheist one year into the future, to a world where millions of people have disappeared, a megalomaniac runs the world, the the atheist's technology is blamed for the mass disappearance.
The Christian scheduled a tour of Biblical history, which happened to be in memory when the atheist entered. And now he's on the tour
A relic hunter is conscripted to hitchhike with the atheist into the past, and both leave a world everyone wants to forget, into a world nobody remembers, of giants, extraordinary technology, evil beings, and the whole world about to be destroyed with water.

Joshua Light appears to be a brilliant man. Once Upon a Time Traveler...The Reluctant Tourist and the Hitchhiker is science fiction.
There were times when reading the book that I struggled to understand the plot. The book contains some technical scientific information that is hard to understand. The dating system used in the chapter headings is different from our calendar. An explanation of the dating system could have helped better understand the flow of the story. This is a book I would recommend reading as a physical book rather than an e-book. There are multiple story lines at the beginning and being able to flip back and forth between chapters could be beneficial. In spite of these challenges I found the book a compelling read.
The beginning of the book has a lot of bouncing between characters and scenes - I’m not sure why all of them were included, in my opinion there are some scenes that are unnecessary for the overall plot of the book. My favorite part of the book was the time travel through biblical times and forward to the end times. I appreciated how this time travel was used to bring one of the characters to a saving faith.
There is nothing in the book that would prevent me from placing Once Upon a Time Traveler...The Reluctant Tourist and the Hitchhiker in my K-12 Christian school library, but I do think the book would have a limited audience. I am considering purchasing Once Upon a Time Traveler...The Reluctant Tourist and the Hitchhiker for my adult children for Christmas.
I want to thank Joshua Light and Interviews and Reviews for the complimentary e-copy of Once Upon a Time Traveler...The Reluctant Tourist and the Hitchhiker. This is my honest review.
