"Willie's Redneck Time Machine"

disclaimer:  I received the following book for free from Tyndale in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
 
"Willie's Redneck Time Machine"
By John Luke Robertson
with Travis Thrasher
 
 
  So if you haven't heard of The Robertson's of "Duck Commander" and "Duck Dynasty" fame by now then my best guess is that you must be living under a rock : )
 
  Willie Robertson and his family formed a company called "Duck Commander" that produces duck calls and then later starred on a television series titled "Duck Dynasty" based on their everyday lives running the duck call business. 
 
  Willie's son ,John Luke Robertson, decided to make his own contribution to the family's fame by writing a series of books that allow the readers to be one of the Robertson's and choose how the story will end.  The books in his series are "Willie's Redneck Time Machine", "Phil & the Ghost of Camp Ch-Yo-Ca", "Si in Space", and "Jase & the Deadliest Hunt".
 
  "Willie's Redneck Time Machine" gives you a chance to play the role of Willie.  It is Korie's (your wife) birthday and you are trying to figure out what kind of gift to get her when you realize that there is an outhouse in the middle of the Duck Commander warehouse.  Or is it an outhouse?...it has antennas on it. 
 
  Your son, John Luke shows up while you are inspecting the outhouse.  He steps inside and disappears.  This is where you get to make your first of many decisions in the book.  Some will take you back in time to your high school prom, some will take you to the future, and yet others will take you way, way back in time. 
 
  Mommy in PA:  I was so excited to see that this was a book written by a Robertson.  My family loves watching "Duck Dynasty".  I was even more excited to see that it was a book that allows you to choose which path to take.  I used to read books like these all the time when I was a teenager and was disappointed to see that there aren't really any books made like that for today's youth. 
 
  John Luke did a wonderful job making this story about his father.  It was just like I was watching an episode of "Duck Dynasty" in my head as all the characters were just like they are on the television show.  Same humor and everything : ) 
 
  This was a great book to read with my nine year old.  He had a blast choosing which path to take in the story.  He did a great job choosing the right path for Willie.  And even if you do choose wrong the outcomes are never scary, so perfect for all ages.
 
  I love that it was something we could read over and over again but never get stuck with the same ending.  They do a wonderful job at helping teach the kiddos how to choose between good and bad decisions.  Good ones typically end up with good results, whereas bad ones can make you end up wishing you would have made a better choice. 
 
    I can't wait to pick up another book from this series for my son.  We are thinking of getting "Jase & the Deadliest Hunt" next because my family is big on hunting : )
