The book is a fun young guys outlook, using a real city, great sci fi mixed with some some believable names from recent history. A little men in Black thrown in,as well.
Nate was the key guy in this read, he is a decent good guy, and even got the girl in the end.
Some people objected a bit to the story twists. I was pleasantly surprised and truly came to care about all the characters. The narrator spoke for at least 8 characters and was fantastic.
14 is a very good story and a well-executed audiobook. The story starts off a little slow as the tenants begin to investigate the events at their apartment building. But that allows the characters to develop and gets the listener into the story. And then the story takes off in unpredictable and utterly enjoyable directions. Highly recommended!
Pulled me in, but ending should have been earlier. The ending lost the 5th star.
Great story and even better performance. This story takes the reader to interesting and unexpected places with interesting and unexpected characters..
Everytime they dropped a great "plot bomb", another great one soon followed!
Spoiler - When the door opened into space.
The main male one - forgot his name
14 - moving in is only the beginning!
I needed a good sci-fy read and this "hit the spot."
Say something about Yusef. Uh...he was a great horn player?
Ray Porter is fantastic and kept me with this even when the dialogue felt like it was sagging a bit (not so often). There are some images that will stay with you a long time after you read it; some good, some interesting and some very scary.
Finding out why Clive and Debbie's apartment was 2-stories tall with wood paneled walls.
No, but he was great.
Not sure about that, but if it were a made-for-TV movie I'd tune in.
This was a good mystery, with fun characters and a lot of humor. I liked the way the suspense built up, and the fantastic things the gang found out. Very imaginative. The last third of the book got downright silly, but by then it was just so much fun that I had to keep listening. Plus the mental pictures were entertaining. Overall a good, light read.
