Dear reader I just finished reading “The Fold” a novel by Peter Clines. I received a hardcover copy of the book in my July fiction book case from my subscription to BookCase.Club (I paid for it myself; since I have been subscribed to this service for awhile and I like it I asked the company for a code for you guys to use to get a discount off the cost of your subscription I don’t get anything from you guys using it it’s just a thank you for your support of me and my blog.

I can’t really explain how much I liked the fact that some of the concept for this storyline comes from the old “I took a wrong turn at Albuquerque” joke from the old school “Looney Tunes” cartoons, (it’s actually referenced in the storyline it’s self) which really fits with my sense of humor.
I really liked the main character and I wish that I could see him in other stories. I really enjoyed how sci-fi elements were done in this book especially the fact that the scientists couldn’t always understand why everything was happening with their project(in so many sci-fi books I’ve read the stories almost always show the scientists knowing everything behind whatever they are doing and for the most part they are always in control of the science) in this book the scientists admit that they don’t always know how everything works. parts of the science/the mechanics of how everything works sometimes went over my head. I didn’t see the plot twists coming and I liked how they flowed into the storyline as a whole.
The last half of the book lost me however the ending of the book was sweet. I do think that people who enjoy sci-fi based fighting against aliens action scenes in books will probably enjoy the last half of the book a lot more than myself.
Overall I personally rate this book a 6 and a half out of 10. Happy reading dear reader 😊. Please like and share this review if you like it doing so helps me to get considered by publishers and authors for future books and helps others to find my reviews 💜.
