The Fold: A Novel (Audible Edition)
by Peter Clines with Ray Porter (Narrator)
Peter Clines has done it again. He starts you out reading a book, that you have a pretty good idea of where it’s headed. Then slowly you feel like something is wrong. It’s not quite what you thought. There are little things that bother you. You aren’t quite sure, but you begin to doubt things, and then all hell breaks loose.
I loved reading and listening to Mr. Clines’ book, 14. So when Audible sent me an email that he had a new book out, I went to their site and got it. The narration works very well. Ray Porter has a voice that works for Peter Clines’ writing. He puts the story out into your brain, but never gets in the way.
Mr. Clines knows how to twist a story. He gives you clues about what is going on, but you miss them, for a while. Then you start to wonder. You think, “Did I miss something? I think I remember something, but I’m not sure.” Then he continues into the realm of something else, he starts to bring in elements of horror, of creatures from another possibility. But it all feels so real, so logical, so possible.
I loved The Fold. I had to go outside and do some extra chores, just so I could continue to listen to it. This is an example of a great audiobook. The story and narrator work perfectly. Together they become real. You can’t stop listening.
I give The Fold 5 Stars out of 5, and Two Big Thumbs Up! If you like a science-based story, set in the present, with just a touch of weirdness, and horror, read The Fold, or better still get the audiobook.
Step into the fold. It’s perfectly safe.
The folks in Mike Erikson’s small New England town would say he’s just your average, everyday guy. And that’s exactly how Mike likes it. Sure, the life he’s chosen isn’t much of a challenge to someone with his unique gifts, but he’s content with his quiet and peaceful existence. That is until an old friend presents him with an irresistible mystery, one that Mike is uniquely qualified to solve.
Far out in the California desert, a team of DARPA scientists has invented a device they affectionately call the Albuquerque Door. Using a cryptic computer equation and magnetic fields to “fold” dimensions, it shrinks distances so a traveler can travel hundreds of feet with a single step. The invention promises to make mankind’s dreams of teleportation a reality. And, the scientists insist, traveling through the door is completely safe. Yet evidence is mounting that this miraculous machine isn’t quite what it seems – and that its creators are harboring a dangerous secret.
As his investigations draw him deeper into the puzzle, Mike begins to fear there’s only one answer that makes sense. And if he’s right, it may be only a matter of time before the project destroys…everything. A cunningly inventive mystery featuring a hero worthy of Sherlock Holmes and a terrifying final twist you’ll never see coming, The Fold is that rarest of things: a genuine pause-resister science-fiction thriller. Step inside its audio and learn why author Peter Clines has already won legions of loyal fans.
