Not sure. It's a mix of some of the odder Steven King stuff and a little bit of Koontz. Different though.
Can't decide. The nice thing about this book is all the characters attract attention.
Very eager to finish it. I kept getting upset when someone would interrupt me.
Too often thrillers put me on the edge of my seat only to disappoint me when it comes time for the reveal. Not this time. I was led along at a gripping pace that only intensified my interest. Very entertaining.
If you give me something original I will probably like it, regardless of the genre. Stick to a formula and I want to hurl a book at your head.
This story really drags you in. At first it may start a little slow, but ever so gradually it builds up and you can't stop listening to it as you uncover the mystery with the characters. I found myself actually crying out excitedly as something was revealed. I would definitely get the book itself because this is seriously great.
Ray Porters performance is deserving of somekind of audiobook award. Additionally, the story was unique enough to keep you interested throughout...though I honestly expected something completely different at almost ever turn. But was satisfied with the outcome. Hats-off to Clines for his intelligent, contemporary and witty dialog and Porters ability to bring it to life...a great one-two combination. Only four stars on the story, simple because I wanted more detail and there were a few incomplete bits introduced in the story that were never addressed. Otherwise it is an audiobook well worth your time and money!

This was an engaging read, with likable and interesting characters. The beginning and middle of the book kept you reading and guessing all the way, but as the reveal began to take shape I was a bit disappointed, a little too out there and not quite in context with the timbre of the rest of the story. Overall entertaining though, the narrator was a bit wooden but I've heard worse.
Good story, believable narrator, entertaining listen. Would recommend this as a great first audible book for new listeners.
Ray does a terrific job bringing the characters to life as well as making you feel the emotions of the moment. He also has a knack for nailing the humor, spot on.
There were several moments that were moving but I am not going to give any spoilers in my review.
Peter Clines knows how to build and deliver an amazing story. This book is a fun, at times terrifying, read right from the beginning.
I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.
Narration, excellent. Story, excellent except for the last hour in which it drops off to a "good" to "very good" level. I'd be stunned if you thought this book was lame, or a waste of your time. Read/listen, and enjoy. It's not what you think.
Not exactly what I expected but the writing was excellent and the characters fun to get to know. The premis is fiction and twisted but keep me listening. I have spent much time in the exact area of Los Angeles where the story takes place and that made it all a bit more real. Most of LA is like fiction anyway so this book just added another layer.
Was very pleasantly surprised by this book. Went on recommendations and was not disappointed. Whilst one or two plot lines were signalled clearly, there was plenty of intrigue and interest in the book. Again, some stereotypes in the characters but overall a very enjoyable listen.
