I put this one on my wish list because I felt like Audible was pushing it down my throat. The title didn't grab me. Neither did the synopsis. Finally, I gave it a shot. I'm SO glad I did !! The characters are diverse and rich. The twists are many, often, and extreme. I'm stingy with a "5,' but this one's worth it !!
I WAS A LITTLE SURPRISED BY THE ENDING- HOWEVER I DID LIKE THIS WRITERS STYLE. I LIKED HIM ENOUGH THAT I WENT AND BOUGHT HIS OTHER BOOKS ON AUDIBLE. PRETTY COOL.
Exciting, unpredictable, enjoyable
Loved them all
There were a few that had me completely engrossed and listening at every given minute.
Don't judge a book by its cover or seemingly unoriginal haunted apartment narrative!
I read too much, like most genre, & am picky about narrators. I like strong characters, great dialogue, & quirky bits!
This book grabbed me quick, I have been listening non-stop...the characters all feel real. Especially Nate...I dunno, yet, how this mystery turns out...but it reads like an old Hardy Boys type mystery--but loads better! A mysterious building, filled with mysterious clues, and mysterious tenants...all of it contiuously building the suspense until at the halfway point I am wishing I could turn the speed up on the recording and listen FASTER! LOL This is a really great escapist novel, I highly recommend it.
I really enjoyed this book, in fact it was my 2nd favorite from 2012 (behind Ready Player One). It had a great groups of characters, the plot continuously kept unfolding without any real lulls, and it was just a lot of fun.
It is kind of a cross between supernatural mystery & techno-thriller -- somewhere at the intersection of (movie) science and horror.
Great narration as well..
I love to listen!
It was ok. That is what I have to say first. It wasn't all bad or all good. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars overall. I think that was fair. There are so many great reviews. I had to try it. Now I have. Eh. It is as I said, "ok."
Ray Porter does a good job at handling so many different characters' voices. The performance is the best part.
The first half is slow...I suppose to let you get introduced to the characters and to lay down the basic story. But...there is almost no action until the second half of the story in my opinion. It also feels like it could have been written for a younger audience though I believe it is meant to be for a post-college-aged crowd.
I enjoyed this book. It was well written and narrated. Good characters and descriptions.
If you enjoyed the first season of "lost" the tv show then you will like this.
I would definitely recommend this book.
Not cookie cutter characters
All the characters were great because I had never met them before.
He could read the line so that it was funnier than it was written
No I wanted to savor it
I would never had picked this book, It was a lucky pick for me.I am not into scifi at all but it was so well written and had humor.
What a great story and performance. Just imagine normal people finding themselves in a really bizarre situation. It's suspenseful, scary and satisfying. Don't be put off by reviews that claim it's way over the edge.
