The Fold, by Peter Clines - A Review

The Fold

   by Peter Clines

Peter Clines' TheFold will grab you from the start and not let go until the finish. I was really looking forward to reading this book but once I had it in hand, I didn't have time to get to it for two weeks. Once I IDID get to it, everything else be damned! This book is an exceptional science-fiction thriller.

Mike Erikson teaches high school kids but he was built to do more. He was recruited by an old friend to take on a fascinating summer job. His job as a DARPA consultant was to check out the “Albuquerque Door,” a portal of sorts that will transport a person from point A to point B almost instantly.  His assessment would help his friend justify budgeting the necessary funds to continue the project.

The people who staff the project are less than forthcoming about what it does and how it works. And after the last DARPA consultant returned, he apparently went mad. But Mike is uniquely qualified to figure things out using his high IQ and eidetic memory.

This book grabs you quickly and then moves so far, so fast without you really even noticing until you're faced with monsters!  Let it take you along through the mind-bending twists and turns and see where you land.

This is really fun science fiction.  It's the kind of story that will have you saying, "oh my god" and "oh wow," out loud as you're reading.  Take this trip.  It's totally safe.  

I highly recommend this book.  It was great fun!

Many thanks to the publisher and author for the advance reader copy.
