On a backpacking trip through Europe, Jason Medley and Theo Barnes stumble through hash bars and hangovers; religious zealots and stalkers; food poisoning and thunderstorms; cute girls; overnight trains; fever-pitch hallucinations-and the spectre of adult responsibility.

But when a jar containing the Universe's DNA falls from Eternity, these new friends find their loyalties put to the test . . . unaware that a motley crew from another realm is chasing them across the globe, with the fate of the Milky Way hanging in the balance.

Traversing Europe, New Zealand, and the backbone of Eternity, Finders Keepers is a raunchy, sci-fi backpacking comedy that not only tackles friendship, sex, commitment, and desire, but also God, reincarnation-and what really happened to the dinosaurs!

Most of this novel is actually two more or less unrelated stories told side by side. The first is the tale of 20-something Jason¿s adventures backpacking across Europe for the first time. Much of this plot is rushed and at times appears to be anecdotes from the author¿s own experiences quoted verbatim and out of context. The other is about a jar of Cosmic Building Material lost during the construction of the Milky Way. It¿s found by chance by a New Zealander, and the rest of the book is spent with various Eternitarians attempting to get their hands on the jar, which is their ticket out of their exile on Earth and back into their posh digs in Eternity. This would have been funny had it been a trifle easier to follow: I kept mixing up characters or forgetting who they were, and the fact that events jumped around in time made it all the more confusing. For the next reader, so you¿re not quite so lost as I was: at some point in time, Emma and Lex are beautiful and successful Eternitarians. Some time later they are on Earth, where Emma is hugely fat and Lex is a dog. It took me far too long to figure out that the story alternated between two timelines. Sure, I got that one took place at the beginning of the Milky Way while the other was in 2005, but the character crossovers really sent my head spinning. On the bright side, everything ties up neatly and happily at the end.In short, don¿t feel bad if you have no idea what the heck is going on for most of the book. Personally, I think I would have enjoyed this one more had Jason¿s coming-of-age-type story had been left out of the madcap SF tale, but I did appreciate the European scenery. Either way, it¿s well-written and fairly entertaining. Worth a try if you¿re looking for something unlike anything else you¿ve ever read.

Two hitchhikers and one jar that can change the fate of an entire galaxy. And a ragtag set of higher beings scrambling to get their hands on it so they can return to Eternity. You'll find yourself giggling at the misadventures of the two earth hitchhikers trying to grasp at the dying strands of their youth. Received for a fair and honest review

Sounds great. Too bad that when I search for it on my NOOK, it can't be found, either by title or authors name. DUH
