    The first 260 pages of this book are easily 4.5 5 stars The last 100e not Maybe 3.5 stars in the end Must ponder further and fight the disappointment that is all the crushing because the first 2 3 of this book was so brilliant.

    Adult science fictionI read this book very quickly always a sign that I liked it The story moves along at a brisk pace The mystery keeps unfolding in increasingly bizarre new layers A team of scientists discovers a way to teleport matter between two rings very much like Stargate, though early on we are warned not to make that comparison, because the scientists hate it The only problem The team is secretive about how the technology works, and why they insist on testing it for another year before [...]

    To my dear friends who were silly enough to give this book 4 and 5 star ratings I love you Despite your spectacular lack of judgement This book in two words mediocre and juvenile Yes, this is officially the worst Science Fiction book I have ever read The only thing I liked about it The premise And to be honest, I m not even sure why I m giving this two stars when it doesn t deserve than one This has to be the stupidest, most ridiculous, most uninteresting SF story ever written and a disgrace to [...]

    This was a fun one Leland Erikson, called Mike for an intriguing reason that I won t spoil for you, is a high school English teacher He has a genius level IQ as well as an eidetic photographic memory, but he wants to live a normal life, so he takes only low profile jobs Mike s quiet life is periodically invaded by his old friend, Reggie Magnus, who now works for the government and is keen to get Mike to take on various high tech projects for him But Mike has never before been tempted to interrup [...]

    When DARPA scientists create a wormhole device in the California desert, why is New England schoolteacher Mike Erikson tapped to investigate the installation Because Mike Erikson has an eidetic memory and is one of the smartest people on the planet Can Mike find out what s really going on at the installation despite the secretive scientists I got this from Netgalley.On paper, this book sounded right up my alley What s not to like about Sherlock monkeying about with some kind of wormhole device S [...]

    Oy vey, what can I say This book was no bueno Such a shame too because the premise, main character, and first half of the story were all very intriguing I love a good sci fi tale it s one of my favorite genres well, to clarify I should have said I love a smart sci fi tale But what you have here was one the most brilliant minds on the planet analyzing a tricky situation and then implementing some of the most maddeningly idiotic and ill considered strategies imaginable And isn t it ironic don t [...]

    Mike Erikson might be the smartest person on Earth, but he s content to use his high IQ and eidetic memory as a small town school teacher However, his friend Reggie is a big deal at DARPA and has been trying to hire Mike for years, and now he finally finds a job that Mike can t resist because of its groundbreaking nature DARPA has been funding a top secret project called the Albuquerque Door in which a small group of scientists have successfully been able to fold space time so that a long distan [...]

    Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum After reading Ron 2.0 s review I had no plans on reading The Fold, but then Ed loooooooved it so I just assumed Ron 2.0 read it wrong per usual and this little baby went back on the TBR But THEN Then Shelby agreed with Ron 2.0 and if you are familiar with them you ll know that never happens I figured that meant the apocalypse was nigh and I had to make sure I had some stuff taken care of before I read it Alright so here s the deal Mike Erikson lives the l [...]

    WINNER GUILTY PLEASURE OF 2015 I fully admit I probably shouldn t love this book as much as I do But I cannot deny that it s the only book this year that I couldn t put down until it was over I had several books that I didn t want to put down but ended up putting down anyway This one I read in one sitting It consumed me I was able to escape for the span of six hours Then I see all my friends thought it was just all right or plain ridiculous and I started questioning my preferences, my place in l [...]

    The author s voice sounds like Dean Koontz and sticks pretty damn close to its SF roots until it turns into some delightfully wacky horror I m a creature of habit I love horror, and anything that gives it to me is my friend If it s ostensibly SF before it gives me all that horror, then I m pink as a bloody peach.I ll get something out of the way, first It feels like a hugely popular novel I don t know if it is, or will be I m reading it because it s new SF and it s an author I ve never touched b [...]

    Three of my most favorite Stephen King sci fi esque stories include the novellas The Mist and The Langoliers and the not to be missed short story The Jaunt which if you haven t read this delightful, chilling diddy yet GO DO IT NOW and thank me later Seriously, it s awesome The Fold in all of its pulpy goodness, thrums along with a vibration that s very Stephen King in its approach to sci fi and I couldn t help but be reminded of those three stories while burning through its pages It s fun, it do [...]

    The fold is another great science fiction horror by Peter Clines It is a stand alone novel but if you have read his previous novel 14 you will be pleasantly surprised by some merging stories and characters Mike Erikson likes to think of himself as a normal guy Your average high school teacher However he has a special ability, a eidetic memory He is able to remember everything he has ever seen or heard, replaying it exactly like it just happened His old friend Reggie convinces him to come and wor [...]

    The opening chapter is pure thriller and engaged me immediately Then we are introduced to Mike, a likeable high school teacher who just happens to be a genius Not only is he brilliant, but he has a photographic memory A good friend of his from college has been trying to poach Mike to go to work for him in a hush hush government experiment, and finally succeeds in piquing Mike s interest enough to woo him away from teaching, and sets him up in a secret testing compound Mike is given little inform [...]

    5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2015 06 04 bThe Fold is an amazing book I couldn t put it down, which is not something I normally write in reviews because it sounds so much like a clich In this case, however, it s absolutely true and no exaggeration This book even caused a moment of blustering indignation at one point, because it was 4 30 in the morning but it still wasn t letting me close it up and get some sleep And that is the story of how I finished this almost 400 page book [...]

    Buddy read with some awesome people at Buddies Books and Baubles4 STARSThis was pretty entertaining and fast paced It never lost its momentum And yet something faltered in the story towards the end and I was left feeling a bit dissatisfied Can t quite put my finger on what and why May be it was the way too many cool creepy ideas were thrown into the mix in the last third of the book and almost none of them reached their full potential or were developed even a bit There are a lot of clues this ma [...]

    The Fold is my second encounter with Peter Clines after reading 14, and while I see a number of similarities between the two books I actually surprisingly liked this better.Mike Erikson is a high school teacher living an ordinary life in an ordinary town, but when he is approached by an old friend Reggie to take a look at a new technology that is being secretly developed by DARPA scientists that would allow a person to be teleported from one place to another by taking a single step But when he a [...]

    This was a really fun read It merged the genres of mystery, horror, sci fi, and fantasy very well The whole story had the feel of an episode of The Twilight Zone, which was pretty cool Mike Erikson is living the quiet life as a high school English teacher in a small New England town when he gets a visit from an old college friend who wants him to stop squandering his genius IQ and eidetic memory and come help evaluate a team of secretive DARPA scientists who are working on a project they claim u [...]

    It is difficult to review this book without spoilers, and since I hate spoilers in all forms, I will keep this short I would say if you like Stephen King or Peter Straub, this is right in your wheelhouse First of all, though, this is one of the most interesting main characters I ve ever seen It s not a spoiler to say this guy has an eidetic memory Now sure, dozens if not hundreds of authors have used characters with photographic memories, but I ve never seen the mechanism for remembering spelled [...]

    I picked this book up because I didn t want to cart the hefty hardback I m in the middle of to jury duty, and thought this slim paperback would fit nicely in my purse It did, and once I started it, it was really difficult to put down It s science fiction, but thank God not as droningly sciencey as The Martian.The first chapter is a great hook, but after that the story settles into a sedate pace for awhile Then it picks up and really hits the gas and doesn t let up until the end The main charac [...]

    Welllooking at my currently reading shelf and seeing it appears that I can keep like 20 books going at once I guess I should review a couple and get them off said shelf So This is the third book I think I ve read by Mr Clines and it s a great read No doubt about it if you like fantasy or science fiction brain candy I think there s an excellent chance you ll like this one.Now let me nite that there are a couple of minor flaws with the book, but sheer good storyness should that be storiness trumpe [...]

    Well That happened.I received a copy of this via Netgalley and was super excited it sounded cool and amazing and everyone was mentioning The Martian My favourite book of 2014 in their reviews I had to have it Small town genius hermit, lured into working for his friend of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA I had to look it up to look into a government funded invention whereby magnetism I imagined a couple of huge MRIs and advanced mathematics create a fold effectively changing th [...]

    Sometimes I fall in love with fictional characters and I readily admit it because I think that most bibliophiles have done the same at one point or another In The Fold I met and developed a huge crush on Leland Mike Erikson Now Mike is a genius who has an eidetic memory but he teaches high school English Literature Mr Clines had me at genius and English Literature Everything seems great in Mike s life until an old friend comes knocking with a job he finally can t refuse Scientists working on a D [...]

    I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This was an incredibly exciting book The first half or so was the set up, character development, and setting the scene It started out like a typical mystery, with hidden agendas, secret agents, and the like At about the 55% mark, things took a swing, and by that, I mean a WILD swing The tension ratcheted up with each new discovery, and there were some truly surprising twists By the 80% point, I couldn t put the book down I m also in [...]

    I received a free ebook of this novel from the publisher through NetGalley.That was a fun ride Just what I needed at the time a fast paced read with fun characters, interesting science, occasional humor, and lots of weird It may have very well pulled me up from a recent reading slump as I devoured the bulk of the story over a weekend.This is my second Clines book, and it read as well as the first one, 14 I ll definitely be taking on books by this author.

    I ll try to write a proper review for this This was a very fun, fast paced story that maintained perfect tension through the entire book It s definitely a good summer read not particularly deep, but nearly perfect for what it is I m looking forward to the next installment, since the ending hints strongly of a sequel to come.

    Peter Clines really knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat For most of the book, I felt like a little kid in the 50s, sitting close to the radio, hanging on every word uttered by the narrator.The Fold is well written, well researched science fiction The MC, Mike, has a 180 IQ and an eidetic memory, both of which make him the perfect candidate to observe the secretive scientists who created the Albuquerque Door, a machine which folds the fabric of space across dimensions.As in 14, Clines [...]

    5 10Never has a book being split in half as diversely as this for me, talk about peaks and troughs I was really digging the book at the beginning, even up to the half way point I was fully invested and would easily have rated this at 4 stars An interesting lead character, Mike, who has an eidetic memory along with a genius level IQ which could have easily come across as a dick but he s actually alright The interesting plot with a group of scientists finding a way to travel vast distances in spac [...]

    melissa413readsalotWow That was one trip of a book I liked it I always know I like a book when I can t wait to see what s going to happen yet and I start talking out loud to the book and the stupidity of what people are doing or not doing I loved one of the main characters, Mike I wish I could have his mind I would love to have a smart, photographic memory I would love to just have a smart brain, but I digress I loved he was referred to as Sherlock, because who doesn t love Sherlock right And he [...]
