This book kept me interested and captivated all the way through. I loved the characters and imaginative story. I looked forward to the times I could listen and hated it when I had to stop for a time because life doesn't let you be immersed in a book all day long. I highly recommend this book, but it is very hard to put down.
I felt like I really got to know the characters in this book and grew to like them. The story was enjoyable and I kept following along, then Peter brought us to a huge leap in reality and the level of excitement and disbelief jumped to a level I didn't know my mind was capable of.
About half way through the second half I expected the story couldn't get any bigger and I was stunned by the leap made into a glittering and electrical dimension that was concretely believable.
I absolutely loved being wrapped up and into this awesome story. It made my spine tingle and crawl more than once.
This is one of the more imaginative stories I've listened to in a long time. It really is full of unexpected twists and turns, as well as some expected ones. I found it started a little slow but still held my interest, but after a couple of hours I was really hooked. It requires willing suspension of disbelief to really follow the plot but I am always willing to do so when I'm reading science fiction/fantasy. Clines has a nice way of keeping the dialog real, even when events are unreal. I thought characterizations were great and have to give the narrator kudos for doing such a great job of differentiating those characters through subtle use of his voice. I especially liked the voice of God.
This book is definitely worth your time; prepare to be surprised.
I enjoyed this book so much. I could not stop listening and even was late for work because I couldn't wait to see what was going to haoppen next. The narrator was great and was able to portray the characters so effectively. If you like mysteries you won't be disapointed with this book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Very detailed and creative! Suspenseful!
My fave characters are Nate and Veek!!
He has a wonderful voice! I felt like he was the characters!! I'm looking for other books he has narrated!!
Yes, I hated putting it down!!
Hoping for more like this from this author and narrated by Ray Porter!!
The reviews I read on this book convinced me to buy it and so glad I did. I enjoyed it from beginning to end especially the character interaction. The witty dialogue between them reminded me of Dean Koontz's "Tic Toc". Loved the narrator too and will look for more of him.
The story was suspenseful and intriguing. I found myself saying no are you nuts, don't go there, but glad they did - except for 14
When they went to 14
No, just enjoyed it
Good story, I will look for other books by Peter Clines
I'd never listened to any of Peter Clines books before and I was rather pleased this one was so great. I've not reviewed a book in years with most of them being well what they intended to share. This one held a great mystery and the narrator was great at sharing the story and making the people sound a bit different. Very good so I ordered another of his books.
Dean Kontz also has great books and usually are kind of different. I love his older books where there was a bit on the unknown world. Odd Thomas character is wonderful.
Love scary stories and thrillers.
My first Peter Clines book. It was fantastic! It's been a long time since I couldn't stop listening to an audiobook. I wanted to know all the answers to all the mysterious questions. Right when things would be intense, Clines would throw some levity into the mix. This book did NOT disappoint!
The book stretched the willful suspension of disbelief beyond the bounds set within the parameters of the book. I also disliked the unnecessary profanity that didn't advance the plot or help to understand the characters. When a writer's expressive capacity is limited to monosylabic junior high language it says something either about the quality of the writer or about the writer's estimation of just how low the readers' vocabulary capacity is.
