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..
There is not much to be told about the story without spoiling it. I think the comparison with the TV show Lost is appropriate, but 14 has better solutions to its plot devices. The performance of Mr. Porter is very impressive. If it was not announced, I could think that 14 is narrated by a full cast. Hope to listen more of both soon: the author and the narrator.
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."
Very unique story, what's going to happen next?
Characters were everyday characters.
Going into the basement
Say something about yourself!
Yes, the narrator made the characters in the book believable with just enough quirkeness to make it a fun read.
Vee or "Velma" I liked her no nonsense attitude plus it was fun to see her interest in Nate "Shaggy" blossom.
I was pleasantly surprised with this book since it was a totally random selection on my part. I was not familiar with the author or the book but was entertained with the story line and characters. I found myself surprise that "science fiction" genre is not all that bad, although I didn't really find the notion of "outer space" to be believable once a a locked door was pried open. Kinda lost me there. But the adventure the book that led me and the characters on was quite enjoyable and weird enough to be believable.
Fun read, just enjoy the book for what it is. A group of misfit tenants coming together to discover about their direction in life and re-discovering the mystery of the place they call home.
I am enjoying the book so far but I only got halfway thorugh as chapter 42 is missing.... Audible are still trying to reslove the issue but after 3 months of waiting I'm not sure how much longer it will be till I get to finish the book????
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.
