I have not written an audible review before, but I felt like I just had to leave a positive review on this book. I'm not normally a sci-fi reader, but thanks to a really cool synopsis and some great reader reviews (thanks ya'll) I purchased the book. I found that 14 was really more about the mystery and the characters than anything sci-fi. I was interested the whole time, and it left me guessing what was next. The characters were great, and I would read a follow-up book if there was one. The narrator was excellent- smooth and believable, which only adds to the story. If you are thinking about taking the chance, do it.
I wouldn't listen to this again because the central mystery is solved.
Funny, stereoptyped accents for female characters
The author needs to come up with an alternative phrase that expresses the experience of taking the first sip from a new beer.
I might have enjoyed this book if there was even a small smidgen of reality. Good science fiction doesn't ignore all of the laws of physics.
The absurd notion that a new dimension would be opened due to the collective brainwaves of billions of people.
No I haven't, but his performance was good except for trying to sound like Gollum at times.
This is science fiction in the way that Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings is science fiction.
I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry.
This is one of those books that you don't want to stop listening to/reading. The narrator does a good job. Altogether a pleasure. Thankyou. I will be searching out more books by Mr Clines.
This is the type of story I'll probably forget about in a couple weeks. Sure, it was entertaining, but don't expect to be blown away with cool ideas or incredible plot twists.
It's a solid effort and worth listening to. Ray Porter is phenomenal.
You can tell who I am by my reading, or can you?
This science fiction book tells the adventures of Nate and his neighbors related to the past of her condominium. Science, fantasy and conspiracy theories are mixed in a good story and a good pace. The narrator portrays the different characters with their own voices making the audiobook especially nice. Highly recommended.
14 would have been better if the Squales had eaten everyone in the first chapter. The only mystery here is that the book found a publisher.
I thought that the story was really entertaining and I liked most of the characters. This was a solid 4- 4.5 stars for me.
Surprisingly, I can't think of a book that 14 reminds me of. It's pretty unique.
*Spoiler alert* I was definitely on the edge of my seat when the group was in the other dimension trying to get back .
*Spoiler alert* I thought it was pretty hilarious how Nate and Veek eventually got together.
I didn't really like how he wrote the Andrew character. It was odd how he kept referring to him with his head tilts...
Avid marathoner and hi tech market analyst. Lover of Ken Follett, Christopher Moore, Timothy Zahn and any book that pulls me in.
I really loved the setup in this novel. The characters are interesting, the mysteries are interesting but the big reveal was a let down. Like a lot of first novels (it happened to me too) the writer gets deep into it and has to work his way out of a corner and can't really do it credibly. Too bad.
The narrator did a great job. Fun to listen to. Good with voices.
If you find this title on sale definitely download it but if you get about 75% in and there's a better book out there, stop listening and you'll think this was awesome.
I had the same experience with Michael Crichton's Sphere.
