Future World Rolls! We Are Family is a wacky work of science fiction by amusing author Terry Tumbler. The second book in the Carousels of Life series, it is written as a book but also a musical which the reader imagines along to, and is the sequel to Future World Rocks! In this edition, the plot begins in the mid 20th century as two FBI agents become involved in a mission to save the human race from alien invasion. In an adventurous romp into the future, the agents encounter new races and time periods whilst trying to achieve their goal, all set to the wild rhythm of Rock ‘n’ Roll songs written by the author.

Terry Tumbler certainly fits the genre of weird fiction really well, and there are plenty of fans of strange alien tales who are sure to enjoy this second adventure in the Future World. For me, the story really smacked of that bizarre Mars Attacks! vibe throughout, mixing charm and unabashed humor with some true weirdness and strange events. I’m undecided on whether I thought the musical element of the tale was necessary or not, but the songs were certainly imaginative and accompanied the tale to add that carefree rock ‘n’ roll backing to many strange twists and turns. Honestly, I believe that Future World Rolls! We Are Family is something every reader needs to discover for themselves, and I can safely say I had a smile on my face during the whole experience. A recommended read.
