I wish the book would have taken off sooner... 2 hours left of the audio before any real action began. And then it still was a quick climax and ending.
This was a great story. It was a tiny bit slow to start, then it unfolded through different stages with lots of interesting ideas and an undertone of suspense. It was very easy to visualise and would make a great mini series in the SF vein of Torchwood or Dr Who.
It was also light and easy to listen to, with the interaction between characters providing lots of wry humour. I liked it and could not put it down towards the end.
only after sufficient time that I have forgotten how the story unfolds and ends! Obviously, part of the 'hook' in this book is the fact that you want to find out what happens next,so if you know what's going to happen, you won't find it as engaging.
They were all pretty interesting but I guess I liked Nate the best. I liked his dead-pan kind of humor. He seemed familiar to me in some way - maybe someone I've met or movie characters I've seen.
He gave each character a different voice (via regional accents, inflections etc) so you could identify each one and which also helped to flesh them out by providing them with additional personality and interest. It helped you to picture the characters and to connect to them as he narrated. He did it in an un self-conscious way, so that the story just rocked along and you were barely aware of his performance.
I finished this book in record time - it was really addictive. The storyline itself seemed quite original - not just sci-fi, not just horror, and not just mystery but a combo of all three. The horror is pretty mild BTW.
Yes. I don't read too much Sci-Fi, but I didn't see that one coming.
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!
