Publisher's Summary

The world's biggest supercollider is locked in an Arizona mountain. The Torus was built to unlock the secrets of the very moment of creation: the Big Bang itself.

It is the most expensive machine ever created by humankind, run by the world's most powerful supercomputer. It is the brainchild of Nobel Laureate William North Hazelius.

Will the Torus divulge the mysteries of the creation of the universe? Or will it, as some predict, suck the earth into a mini black hole? Or is the Torus a Satanic attempt, as a powerful televangelist decries, to challenge God Almighty on the very throne of heaven?

Twelve scientists under the leadership of a famed Nobel Laureate are sent to the remote mountain to turn it on. And what they discover must be hidden from the world at all costs. Wyman Ford, ex-monk and CIA operative, is tapped to wrest from the team their secret, a secret that will either destroy the world - or save it.

The countdown begins.

    "A Fun Tale"

    Although this stretched the belivability factor it was a fun listen even with the wacko's. Keep finding yourself saying "yeah how can that be?", but it is worth it, if your looking to be entertained.

    "Freaking awesome. I love this story."

    Together as the Preston and Child team. Or on there own. Like Child's "Deep Storm" book. Or this book "Blasphemy" by Preston. These guys know how to tell great and smart storys.

    Great book. Thank you Mr. Preston.

    "A WASTE"

    If you are a Christian, especially one who takes their faith seriously, then stay away from this book. You are being warned. I’ve read/listened to most of the Preston/Child books and they have all been somewhat entertaining but this book moves from being the characteristic suspense/detective/thriller to a bashfest on Christians using every negative stereotype that can be conjured. There is even the stated comparison of Christianity to the practices of al-qaida. This book follows on the heels of Tyrannosaurus Canyon with the main character being Wyman Ford, the ex-monk, ex-husband, ex-CIA operative, and apparently ex-Christian; however, this book is not nearly as well written. It’s obvious that Preston is paying homage to L. Ron Hubbard and scientology but at the expense of those who dismiss those beliefs. As for me, this book literally is “Blasphemy”.

    "Interesting Read"

    Delves well into the human nature, extremely dramatized of course, and the descriptions about the Navajo nation were surprisingly accurate.

    My only input was the fact that the author either never researched or left out to add the the dramatization, the actual source of the Big Bang Theory. It was not scientific as most people assume. Research it if you were wondering.

    "predictable"

    This is quite predictable and while it filled in the time - there are better titles on Audible.
    Nothing like Dan Brown.

    "Anti-Christian"

    This book portrays evangelical Christians as crazy, foaming at the mouth, violent people. It is ridiculous. Other than that the book is predictable and boring.

    "Poor Fiction"

    "Blasphemy" is a poorly done New Age fairy tale. The author himself seemed to lose interest in the story shortly after the opening. If you enjoy fiction that makes sense along the way, this book is not for you. If, on the other hand, you can tolerate a mediocre to poor story - you will still be disappointed.

    "Disappointed"

    Although the author is talented, I am very disappointed in the disrespectful way he portrays Christians. Yes, there is a small percentage of people out there that are like his characters, but the majority of Christians are not. As for Science? The more scientists try to disprove the Bible the more they end up proving it. Do the research.

    "Blasphemy"

    the subject matter was boaring and the characters fell flat. This author has produced some fine works but this was not one.
