Description

Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake.

So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave?

Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.

The one who's being pursued by...something.

So when the mysterious traveler finally reappears, Eli's determined that this time, he's going to get some answers. But his hunt soon yields far more than he bargained for, plunging him headlong into a dizzying world full of competing factions and figures straight out of legend.

To make sense of the mystery at its heart, he must embark on a breakneck chase across the country and through two centuries of history - with nothing less than America's past, present, and future at stake.

narrator was great, story was meh

Seemed like a great idea that never really delivered. Ray Porter was great, just like the Bobiverse books, but this story never really delivered. There were a few good moments but overall it was a bit of a bore.

Beware the faceless man...

Clines' is definitely not a one-hit wonder. I've read his past three novels and all of them manage to exceed my expectations. I haven't read the Ex-heroes series yet but if they're anything like his recent releases, they have to be good.

I love how imaginative his novels are. There are no cliche characters, no guessing the ending by chapter two - I literally have no idea what's going to happen next. And can't stop listening, which for me is unusual. A lot of times I end up zoning out or skipping through audiobooks, wishing it would just be over. I've never done that with this author/narrator pairing. It's like Ray Porter was born to read Clines' novels. I honestly hope he never uses anyone else.

If you're debating whether or not to pick this as your next listen, if you're even remotely into, as another reviewer calls it, "strange" sci-fi or alternate reality type stuff, I promise you it will be worth your time. Even if it's not your usual cup of tea, it's still a really great book.

I tried SO hard, I really did!

I normally LOVE Peter Clines. I have read and recommended many of his books, so when I heard there was a new one, I was thrilled.

Cut to my bewilderment as I listened to a book led by a completely uninteresting lead, full of useless characters, with a plot that, while imaginative simply turned out to be useless and dumb.

I'm sad. I adore Ray Porter's voice, and that is the only way I made it to the end of this very very pointless book.

My advice, save a credit and read one of his older works.

Fun read

Great book. Made me laugh quite a few times.. If I had to compare it to something it would be like a crossover of National Treasure and the Matrix and it would air on the history Channel. Loved it!

Standard Clines. Fun and forgettable

14 is Clines' high water mark (IMO) and this new work doesn't quite reach even the level of The Fold for pulling you in and keeping you engaged. I WANTED to connect with the characters but never quite got there.

Porter doesn't have the range of some narrators and offers no new voices here, but does an adequate job.

Still, its a fun little story and kept me entertained on a few long runs. I didn't like it as much as I wanted to when I picked it up but don't regret the credit.

What happened?

I loved The Fold and 14 and thought I'd found a new favorite author, but I could not get interested in this book.

I tried, started over several times, never could find it interesting at all.

I'll be returning this book.

Frustrating dialogue

I'm a big fan of Peter Clines other books, but this book has been painful to get through, simply because EVERY dialogue plays out similarly:

Someone makes a statement, Eli says "What", "Who", "How", "Why", "Where", or "When", then the person repeats the exact same statement, just for Eli to try another interrogative, and so on.

I began to play a game where I would yell out what I thought Eli was going to say next, and got probably 80% accurate by the end.

The book could have been 8 hours long and a whole lot less tedious without this song and dance.

Premise is a little cheesy

I loved 14 and The Fold, so reading Paradox Bound was a no-brainer.

After 1/4 of the way through the book, when you find out what the premise of the book is, you'll have to pause for a moment while you groan and roll your eyes. I guess you should always be suspicious of a book whose description doesn't tell you what the book is about; had I known, I probably wouldn't have read it.

That being said, Porter is great (as usual), and even though the premise is very cheesy, the book is well-written and the story unfolds evenly.

Not my cup of tea.

This book was not written for me. The book morphs genres as quickly as it starts to develop one. It starts out as a mystery then slips into a road adventure genre, then slips into something else, then something else. Clines never pins down what I am supposed to be reading, I hate that. Clines forgets to add comedy to this book as well. In most of his works we have these light moments before being sucked back into an abyss. There is no abyss and no funny to be found. Another thing this book does is talk. There is only a handful of action sequences, and the best one come early. Ray Porter is amazing as always, but even with him I found very little in the book to be excited about.

The paradox is why keep reading his books…

Peter cline’s books are to me a paradox, just enough really good writing to keep you interested but just enough bad writing to make you wonder why you keep reading it. To me they usually start off quite well and then he seems to hit this Zombie zone where none of his description really gives me an accurate picture. I feel like I’m looking at something with fuzzy lenses over my eyes and it’s annoying. But in the end he comes up with enough original concepts and satisfying results to keep buying his books. it’s just me I guess.

Having a hard time with this story

I am halfway through, or rather I have 5 hrs 25 mins to go. I get "good guys" and "bad guys" and fear strikes my heart when I hear 15 say " Hello, ..." but I just can't grasp the intangible, and the purpose. I will finish the book because the narration is AWESOME and the story isn't a complete failure, but I'm having a hard time with it.
