If you like fiction and the discussion around telepathy, this book will be worth your time and money.
I am fascinated by the subject of telepathy and the evolution of the senses as the human brain continues to evolve. Accordingly, this book had me interested before the first world was spoken. In my opinion, the author developed the story well, using an interesting range of both good and unlikeable characters. Dr. Fleishman went on to mix together a little high level science, suspense, cultural tidbits and a fast moving plot - a recipe for a good book in my library.
Please know that this is the author's first book - and it's published in both traditional and Audible formats. As with many Audible versions of a book, a performer can add to or detract from a book. In this case, the performer's interpretation of one of the more interesting characters was rather harsh to my ear. Otherwise, Orenstein captured a range of genders, ages and accents rather well. All in all, the performance was solid.
As an avid listener and holder of over 2900 Audible titles, I believe this book to be somewhere between 4 and 5 stars. Realistically, I may have pumped this book up by half a star because of the subject matter. Conversely, a reader/listener might drop it a star if the subject matter is unappealing; however, if so, why get it in the first place. I noticed an extremely small number of many readers poorly rated this book - as did one listener. Don't let them put you off - some people are just that way. If you like books of this genre, you won't be disappointed.

What made the experience of listening to The Gemini Factor the most enjoyable?
The narrator made each character clearly defined, and his acting was in perfect sync with the book. I liked learning interesting facts about twins and examples of twin communication.
What about Michael Karl Orenstein’s performance did you like?
The acting drove the story forward, and the characters were all clearly defined, making it easy to fall into the story and know who was speaking when.
