I would read another book by P.C. Because I believe in 2nd chances. I loved the narrator
There wasn't enough suspense.
The gatherings on the rooftop.
Not really :/
I enjoy listening to Ray Porter. It took me a while to distance myself from his performance in "The Joe Ledger Novels."
**Spoiler** When the old lady died. It would have been a terrifying way to go.
The reading was great, it would make a great movie. The characters were interesting, and carried a good story line.
The pace, although the end gets a little wild.
Yes this would make a great movie, the Squales would interesting to see.
Say something about yourself!
I was getting in a slump finding books that were addictive & unable to stop, but this book is incredible. The narration is excellent and the story just blows your mind. It is intriguing and mind-provoking.
A great cast of characters and a unique storyline. There was a lot of wry humor and it made the characters come alive.
I had a tremendous amount of fun listening to this book. I think I was on the edge of my seat through the whole thing, but it was entertaining suspense that made it impossible to stop listening. It definitely took an unexpected turn at the end, but if there were more stories set in this apartment building, I would happily read them since there are all kinds of ideas to be explored in this world.
I've listened to Ray Porter read the Joe Ledger Series, and he definitely doesn't disappoint with this book. Every character had a distinct voice, and he does accents very well, even for female voices.
I was disappointed to find Chapter 41 plays at the end of part one, and then again at the beginning of part two. Chapter 42 is nowhere to be found. I'm actually surprised more people haven't noticed this or at the very least mentioned it, since it leaves out a rather creepy element from the story! At first, I thought maybe this was intentional (42 is supposedly the answer to the ultimate question and there are MANY questions about this apartment building) but I sought out another copy and Chapter 42 was there.
I stayed up all night because I couldn't bear to turn it off. I'm not a big fan of sci-fi but this story was so good I got caught up in it. The writer started off the sci-fi stuff with small clues interwoven in the character and plot development so that everything was totally believable, at least at first. The characters were colorful, amusing, and very likeable. I found even the. very imaginative sci-fi ending gripping which is saying a lot for someone who doesn't like sci-fi. A thoroughly enjoyable listen. The narrator was really exceptional too.
This is quite an unusual and entertaining novel. The story and characters are cleverly interwoven with a lot of unexpected twists. You find yourself getting so involved with the plot that it's very difficult to pause the story and go on with life. The reader did a terrific job on some very difficult characters' voices.
I downloaded this book on a whim because it was advertised and well rated. Well since then I have had my mother, wife, and best friend read the book through kindle purchases I have made. This book is well paced and keeps you very interested. I agree with the synopsis that it is somewhat like combining the TV show Lost ( and there is even a reference to it) with a haunted mansion. The characters are well through out and each have a distinct personality with interesting back stories. The characters are further brought to life through great voice acting and narration. This book was a welcome surprise and I highly recommend it!
This book is just enjoyable all the way through. The mystery enthralls and has the right amount of humor and fantasy without being trite or too over the top. I chewed through this book at every available listening time. I can't recommend it enough.
14 does a perfect job of doling out the perfect amount of information about the mystery to keep you on the edge of your seat without revealing too much. The revelations at the end are enjoyable and well done. The characters are a little plain but the fun of exploring the apartment building with the main character is enough to keep me enthralled with every minute of the book!
Absolutely! Only work and sleep kept me from listening to this in one sitting... and even then... I did sneak two lunch breaks with my book.
