The characters are likeable. The story started out slow, and then twisted into something out of this world.
I was never a fan of this genre, and it did not convert me. I would not knowingly look for another book that screamed sci-fi.
I liked his performance. It is one of the aspects of this Audible that kept me listening.
I liked the characters, and I certainly see the building giving enough material for another story. I just don't think the author could pull it off, and make me want to give it my attention.
Mystery sci-fi thriller
What starts out as a mystery to be solved morphs into a sci-fi doomsday thriller a la Dune. I am not usually a sci-fi kinda gal but this twist was acceptable. I was intrigued by the constant twists and turns. The characters were all pretty well developed.
The story line starts off with so much potential and then when you find out what 14 is all about it becomes unrealistic and far fetched.
I would still try another book by Peter Clines, as there is great potential.
Ray's portrait of the 'thing' late in the book is mind numbing, he had me convinced I was Nate and I was living the story.

This book kept me from going to sleep.It was that good. Enough said. Buy it, you won't regret it.
Didn't want to put my ipod down. This book kept me entertained and I will
definitly try the other books.
YES! I couldnt stop listening - and the plot took turns I did not expect
NO, but I look for his name now! He was AMAZING! I was able to sink in and get absorbed in the story- without losing the characters. Intonations, Voices and Accents were there, and just made the story so GRIPPING! At the beginning of the story - I thought, wow, this is well narrated.....eventually, I got so lost in the story, that I forgot it was even being READ....which is the point, right? AMAZING! I ended the story wanting more!
When the "gang" all started coming together......
I love the story......I love the narration.....I love the writer......THIS BOOK ROCKS.......THIS AUTHOR ROCKS......have and will continue to purchase anything Peter Clines writes.....immediately after finishing listening to the book twice I dived into the world wide web to see if there was anything else out there from Mr. Clines.......found his other books and bought them and have listened to them several times......and found a new genre that I enjoy!!!!!!!
I loved Nate Tucker.......the newest great American hero!!!!!!
The whole book had me on the edge of my seat!!!!!
LOVE.......RECOMMEND.......INSIST YOU LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!!!!!!
Need to change half of the book storyline.
This book started well but went sideway.
Too many !!!!!
The audio sample of this book made me purchase it but to my surprise as I was a 1/3 into the book I thought I was reading a totally different book. The story line just went leftfield then later monsters and creatures appear and I couldn't follow it any longer but I finished it anyway because I already spent the money on it. I'm not 12 yrs old. Some people loves monster stories. The voices of the reader got so annoying. No, I don't recommmend this book unless you're into fantasy or a monster story.
I really liked "Ghost in the Wires" read by Mr. Porter. After this book, he is by far my favorite.
The story grabs you from the beginning and he brings to life all the different characters. It's amazing how he makes each character unique through his different voices.
Just get this. You will not be disappointed!!
My husband and I listened to this on our recent Thanksgiving weekend car trip. We are totally in love with Ray Porter as the reader, his talents are amazing! But a bonus is that this book was a great read. Kept us sucked into the story the whole time, and we couldn't wait to get back in the car to listen to some more.
We were reminded of several sci-fi stories such as StarGate and many with time travel. There were elements of some television shows such as The Twilight Zone. Loved it!
Ray Porter is hands down our favorite narrator. He breaths life into every book we've listened to, including the entire Joe Ledger series by Jonathan Maberry.
Full of humor, so don't be afraid that this is a horror movie that will make you cringe.
There were some points where you might get anxious, but that helps build the suspense. Be assured, you'll laugh plenty while you listen to this book.
Buy it, listen to it. You'll thank me! As an aside, my husband and I were trying to decide who would play these characters in the movie. We decided the entire cast from Firefly would do nicely if Joss Whedon would please direct!
