This works better as a physical or kindle book.
This might have worked if pdf downloads of the diagrams to which it refers were made available with audible book.
It also is USA based ... which also makes it less relevant to UK listeners

Good story but poor narration

The audible book badly let down in parts by poor narration.

Some of the characterisation was mumbled in distinct and very unclear.

Understanding is not assisted by narrators speaking style.

I never got to grips with the plot - it certainly felt like a dream that made little or no sense.

The narrator is not well matched to the character of the main player in the book.

The mismatch makes listening to the book discordant and spoils the performance .

Could not get into this one- because the story line was not believable.

The characters had insufficient depth or back story to explain their behaviour

Cleverly constructed

Cleverly constructed crime puzzle that left me connecting the dots right until the end of the story.

Disturbing and unpleasant- not in any way enjoyable . Why would anyone read or listen to this.

Interesting plot and entertaining read
But, for me it didn't hang together.
It was as if it wasn't thought through.

Fascinating

Would you listen to The Fold again? Why?

No . I never read a book twice

Any additional comments?

The beings from other dimensions were not convincing and unnecessary

Can't get started

What would have made Trigger Mortis better?

Narration is tedious - simply cannot connect with the book

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of David Oyelowo?

Any one else

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Could not get past the first chapter

Any additional comments?

A book should grip me at the outset, but the narration failed to capture my imagination
