    Unique story

    I am a little torn about this book. I loved this book and found it to be an engrossing story for the first 250 pages or so. At that point the story took a left turn for me and I have to admit that I am still wondering why the author decided to go in that direction. The last section of the book wasn't bad in any way it just wasn't the direction that I thought the story would go. I do realize that many people will actually find the final parts of the book to be the highlight of the story. I almost immediately liked the main character, Mike. The way Mike's character was completely relate-able despite the fact that he has abilities that are beyond the average individual was amazing. Not only was Mike relate-able, I was able to completely envision how his mind worked and how he was able to process everything so quickly. It took me a lot longer to connect with any of the other characters in the story but that is largely because of how the story developed. I loved the idea behind the story. A device that can teleport individuals? Where do I sign up? Every time I have to drive a distance, I dream of the day that this device will become a reality. A story based on such a device was one that I couldn't wait to read. This straight forward idea was presented in a way that kept me turning the pages. I couldn't figure out what was really going on and I found myself having a hard time putting this book down. I really enjoyed the author's writing style. The pacing of the novel was well done and I loved the fact that the story made me think. There was more than enough action to keep me guessing and there were lots of twists that I could have never guessed. I was really wanting to see how Mike was going to figure everything out. I loved being in his head and seeing how his mind worked on these problems. This was a solid 4 star book for me until the last 100 pages or so of the book. As I mentioned, the story took a turn that just didn't seem to flow with the rest of the story for me. It was exciting and unexpected but it almost felt like a different story for me. It was really the last part of the book that caused me to lower my rating to 3 stars but I do think that many readers will enjoy the twist. I would recommend this book to science fiction fans. This is the first book by Peter Clines that I have read and I look forward to reading some of his other work in the near future. I received a copy of the book from Blogging for Books for the purpose of providing an honest review.

    Starts great, finishes lame

    Four stars is too low a rating for much of the book and too high for the rest. I really enjoyed most of this book ... but then the plot suddenly shifted to what I would call a comic-book plot. It's still worth reading, but it let me down.

    The FOLD -- Starts off BOLD - Finishes off OLD !!

    Great idea -- likeable characters -- Starts to fall flat as soon as the aliens are introduced -- terrible ending -------- But it has some exciting ideas that keep you thinking !!
