In sales and on the road a lot. Love SciFi, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, and the occasional Non-Fiction. Funny. Opinionated.
In a heartbeat. I think that I came in with such low expectations that the book caught me off-guard. It a a solid and entertaining time-killer with decent and authentic characters. When things get crazy the book really takes off.
How to say this without ruining anything? The airlock.
This book flows well. It is a good spring/summertime read and you should be able to knock it out in 2 or 3 days. If I could change anything it would be towards the end when things get "other-worldly," I would have reined that in a little. It's a good 4 star book that I would recommend.
I may but i have to read positive feedback out of other people before i spend my time on it.
Most interesting is the mystery itself and how slowly they are uncovering it. That made it a page turner. Least interesting is when the mystery was revealed and everything went Hollywood action style on the end.
He was consistently good and loved how he brought the characters to life.
I was expecting something more at the end but it fell flat in my opinion but it was still a time well spent.
Fun read but the ending is not as mind blowing as i expected.
Slight silly, mostly mellow, little lady.
It is definitely in my top 5. There were parts of this book that actually had me on the edge of my seat and yelling. I haven't been this involved with a book and the fate of its characters for a very long while. The entire experience was amazing.
He did a great job of embodying the characters. Each person had a distinct voice and I could immediately tell who was who. His narration gave me so much more than I just the text could have. Excellent performance!!
Please, please read it.

I met Peter Clines through his Zombie Superhero book, EX-Heroes. Now 14 - I was so enthralled by this book.. I thought I was near the end of book...(no spoiler here) thinking ok its a good book and here comes the end but wait ... there is more! I looked and I had an hour to go! I thought wow more story.... Love it...hope it becomes a series, I would like to see where the characters go!
I liked the characters in this book and it seemed okay for the first half. At some point this book went berserk and became WAY too Sci Fi for my taste. Just not my cup of tea and gave up somewhere in the second half.
I love to read!
I wasn't sure if I would like this book, but read it on a recommendation. I was hooked immediately. Great story, great characters, great narration! Even if you are not a tried and true fan of science fiction, I'd recommend that you give this book a try. You might be surprised!
14 is creepy, chilling and fun.
There's a nail-biting scene that had my heart pounding!
Mr. Porter's accents bring so much to the book. I really enjoyed that!
I've been an Audie Awards judge since 2008. I have enjoyed audiobooks since the days when they were called "Books on Tape".
When you listen to this book the title of this review will make sense. I was captivated from one end of this book to the other. Every chapter left you hanging... I almost expected that end scene music from Lost after each chapter. Only this book is what Lost SHOULD have been. The narrator did a great job except for the accent of Veek. He sounded like a male Indian when she was very much a female. Female Indian accents are different from male. Great story. Get this book if you want to be late for work because you're stuck in your car listening to the next chapter on your car stereo.
I've always been a voracious reader of both fiction and non-fiction. I don't have a "favorite genre" - I just like good books. I especially like audio books that are well read.
It's hard to say... the story was FANTASTIC .... creative, compelling, suspenseful. The reading by the narrator was amazing. This narrator was so good at changing his voice you could easily believe multiple actors were reading the script.
Tim was my favorite character. I liked that he added balance and leadership without taking over from Nate. He was the sensible guy and very street smart.
I have not, but I will pick up more narrated by him. It was excellent and added immensely to my enjoyment of the book.
When something is too good to be true.... run!
I hope they do make a movie of this.. I'd love to see it.
mystery gone chthulu
The protagonist Nate is easy to identify with. He's really an everyman who gets thrown into a world of mystery and danger and rises to the role of hero.
That's hard to decide. The discovery of the sub sub basement. The entry into room 14. The mysterious writing on the walls. The discovery of the control room....There are so many good scenes.
When the elderly neighbor goes into room 14.
If you are at all into Lovecraft, great fun. The mystery side is very good, but the outcome might disappoint someone who is a fan of Occam.
