As another reviewer mentioned, I came into '14' with no expectations and very little idea of the storyline. I bought it based on the reviews and the short description provided by the Publisher. The book was a blast from beginning to end. Story was sharp and the read/listen was never dull. The L.A. of the book could not have been more right-on. The dialogue was snappy and witty, and throughout I was amazed at how natural it sounded. The reader was amazing, one of the best I have ever heard. Don't miss out on this one, it is a wild ride.
Enjoy the adventure
A mystery in the paranormal genera. The author was able to get me to care about the main characters and to love hating the villains. Saddly, not everyone makes it to the end.
I most enjoyed the witty repartee among the characters which added spice to the story.
Not sure what I expected but really like this book- not quite done with it yet. At first-- wasn't sure I liked the narration- but ended up really liking the personalities that Mr. Porter portrayed. Have about another hour left- and have not been able to put it down. Great credit spent.
Definitely. Like all good mystery novels, you want to go back and read the story again and appreciate the setup, the clues and the characters. With my first listen I just wanted to find out what happened next, now I want to enjoy it for the story.
I liked it when they were exploring the rooms as I could imagine myself doing exactly the same thing.
I wasn't expecting the end of this book and I was also completely surprised by apartment 14. All of the surprises were welcome and while theres a few plot holes and way out stuff happening, i found that if I didn't overthink things and just went with it, I really had a fun listen.
The media mogul
The audiobook was narrated well and was an enjoyable listen.
Peter Clines created realistic and relatable characters in this novel. With that said I found the last third of the book to take me out of the enjoyment of the novel. The story feels forced towards the end in order to be "extreme."
Porter does an excellent job giving each character a distinct and memorable feel. The pacing was done well and I could easily visualize the story in vivid detail.
During the developing parts of the story where the characters were being fleshed out was enticing and fun. Towards the end of the book I had a few laughs but mainly felt compelled to finish listening to the book.
It's definitely among the top 5
The point in which the lead character glimpses things no one else sees...yet.
Porter performed a wide variety of voices with realistic delivery of dialogue. He brought the words even more alive with witty turn of phrase.
Protect The World
I thought I knew what would happen when they opened the door to apartment 14. I was wrong.
Ray Porter has a fantastic voice and has become one of my favorite narrators. In 14 Ray was able to clearly portray the voice and personality of so many characters from all over this world and beyond.
This book is a definite read for anyone who likes Hell Boy.
The narrator did a fantastic job with the different characters as well as being a nice voice to listen to.
I was riveted by the story from the very beginning.
Definitely. It is a great story and performance.
Leviathan Wakes and Caliban's War by James S.A. Corey. Strong character development and thematic aspects of the story make it similar.
It was energetic and I felt the nuances of each character.
The best place to hide a tree is in a forest.
