Despite the grisly murder that is central to the story, IN FREE FALL is a twisty mediation about ideas rather than a crime novel, and, as such, is probably better suited to the eye than the ear. That is to take nothing away from narrator Mark Bramhall, who is arid when he needs to be—especially in the philosophical arguments between physicist rivals Sebastian and Oscar—and desperate and despairing when called upon—as Sebastian finds his perfect life headed to ruin. But even the most attentive listener will find it difficult to stay on point as the narrative gives way to Zeh’s playful commentary on physics and reality. Those who attempt to listen to this book should be forewarned: It is a work that will require full concentration. M.O. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
