I have a long commute during the week and listening to great novels always help the time go by more quickly. I love this website!
I've never read the print version and dont' intend to because the narration is just so good!
I can't compare it to books I've read but I can compare it to tv shows like "lost', x-files, and
All of them!
No, I commute so it took me about a week to listen to the whole book.
This book surprised me. I wasn't going to pick it but the excerp got my attention. This book had me talking out loud driving down the road at the characters!! Great story if you are in to sci-fi.
In the top 10
Not sure. It's a mix of some of the odder Steven King stuff and a little bit of Koontz. Different though.
Can't decide. The nice thing about this book is all the characters attract attention.
Very eager to finish it. I kept getting upset when someone would interrupt me.
Too often thrillers put me on the edge of my seat only to disappoint me when it comes time for the reveal. Not this time. I was led along at a gripping pace that only intensified my interest. Very entertaining.
If you give me something original I will probably like it, regardless of the genre. Stick to a formula and I want to hurl a book at your head.
This story really drags you in. At first it may start a little slow, but ever so gradually it builds up and you can't stop listening to it as you uncover the mystery with the characters. I found myself actually crying out excitedly as something was revealed. I would definitely get the book itself because this is seriously great.
Ray Porters performance is deserving of somekind of audiobook award. Additionally, the story was unique enough to keep you interested throughout...though I honestly expected something completely different at almost ever turn. But was satisfied with the outcome. Hats-off to Clines for his intelligent, contemporary and witty dialog and Porters ability to bring it to life...a great one-two combination. Only four stars on the story, simple because I wanted more detail and there were a few incomplete bits introduced in the story that were never addressed. Otherwise it is an audiobook well worth your time and money!
I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.
Narration, excellent. Story, excellent except for the last hour in which it drops off to a "good" to "very good" level. I'd be stunned if you thought this book was lame, or a waste of your time. Read/listen, and enjoy. It's not what you think.
Not exactly what I expected but the writing was excellent and the characters fun to get to know. The premis is fiction and twisted but keep me listening. I have spent much time in the exact area of Los Angeles where the story takes place and that made it all a bit more real. Most of LA is like fiction anyway so this book just added another layer.
Was very pleasantly surprised by this book. Went on recommendations and was not disappointed. Whilst one or two plot lines were signalled clearly, there was plenty of intrigue and interest in the book. Again, some stereotypes in the characters but overall a very enjoyable listen.
An excellent audio version of a fantasy thriller with a realistic,contemporary set of characthers. A modern take on the H.P.Lovecraft mithos with subtle irony and an amazing work of narrative growing tension.Very entertaining, funny, chilling at the end. Perfect audio book for disconnecting tension,stress, altough some drops of social situation, crisis.
