It is a story full of little mysteries that make you increasingly curious page after page.
I think that the catching moment is when Veek takes Nate outside to show him that the building is not conected to the electrical system of the city.
My favorite scene is when Nate starts to peel of the paint of his apartment's wall to discover hidden messages.
The narrator was very efficient making diferent voices for diferent characters.
How it kept you listening.
The Indian girl and loved the way all the characters sounded different and how well the reader did with giving them their own personality.
Tell us about yourself!
A nice book that is not set up to be multiple sequels. It was fun to listen too and I found myself hoping I would get stuck in traffic so I could listen longer. The plot did go towards the extreme at the end, but there was no way to predict or see what was coming. The characters were fun and diverse, but the author did not go into boring background historys of all of them like some do. Fresh and fun - worth a listen!
A business professional with a voracious reading habit. My favorites are crime dramas and sci-fi/fantasy, but the occasional romance or history read is great too.
Imaginative, interesting, odd
The secrets in the walls.
He is a good narrator. A little odd with the voices he tries to portray, but still keeps the story moving along well.
I do not want to spoil anything.
Long story, kind of odd (but I like that). Plenty of turns and blind corners.
The end, really?
The whole journey of relationships and investigation is great. The link to Tesla etc. good.
The summation after the event, of the characters was excellent.
He did a superb job!
Good humor too
Interesting and keeps you listening
This is an interesting story -- I'm not sure I've ever read anything like it. It has elements of steampunk, but it isn't steampunk. It has elements of horror, but it isn't that either. I guess you could call it a mystery story with a really different ending.
It fulfilled one of my criteria, which is to not be predictable. This story starts out in one place and meanders into a different place altogether. I like the surprises. The characters were well done and interesting. The climax was a little confusing -- Clines doesn't describe things in too much detail in that part, instead leaving it up to your imagination to fill in the pictures.
The performance was fine. If I don't really notice the performance and only hear the story, then I think the talent has done a good job, and that's how I felt here.
I really like thrillers. My favorite type of movie or book is one that has a unique perspective instead of a different version of the same story repeated by many different writers throughout the years. Many books are fine for a one-time listen, but to find one that's good enough to listen to again and again is a rare find indeed!!
I thought this book was a thriller. I thought something scary was happening in an apartment and/or an entire apartment building. I had insomnia one night and thought this would be an excellent way to spend a sleepless night: listening to a thriller.
It started out slowly, but I remembered the reviews, the description and the sample I listened to, so I kept listening . . . and listening . . . and listening to the most boring book I ever suffered through!!
I kept waiting for the excitement!! I kept waiting for the thrill!! I kept waiting for the scary part!! I kept waiting period. If it hadn't been for the insomnia, I would have stopped listening quite early.
The reader was good, but the story kept getting longer and longer and longer. When finally the reason for the plot was revealed, I couldn't believe it!! I am not a science fiction fan per se, although I have enjoyed some sci-fi tv shows and movies. I am not THIS type of sci-fi fan and therefore I did not like the book at all!!
If you're a true-blue-all-the-way sci-fi fan, you'll probably enjoy this. If you're not, if you're a pure thriller fan, seek other books!! This is not worth a true thriller fan's time or worth a single credit!! So beware!!
Unusual, not to unbelievable, just a hint of possibility
Good trumps Evil
ALL OF THEM
WAR OF THE WORLDS
I agree with audible`s Emily, who featured "14" on "what we`re listening to".This one is definitely worth spending money or a credit on. The story is totally plausible (I`m always looking for Sci-Fi or Fantasy that don`t just make up worlds of their own but try to attach their stories to our 20 or 21st century world and rules, and scepticisms.) "14" is a very smart story, with well crafted characters and a gripping story. the narrator is very good. I am looking forward to checking out other of Peter Clines` novels.
I have a long commute during the week and listening to great novels always help the time go by more quickly. I love this website!
I've never read the print version and dont' intend to because the narration is just so good!
I can't compare it to books I've read but I can compare it to tv shows like "lost', x-files, and
All of them!
No, I commute so it took me about a week to listen to the whole book.
This book surprised me. I wasn't going to pick it but the excerp got my attention. This book had me talking out loud driving down the road at the characters!! Great story if you are in to sci-fi.
