"Wait for it -- f*&@ you" is just one of many groanably bad dialogue moments. 14 wins an award for being the most clumsily book I ever made it all the way through. While there was a good hour of excitement and novelty, I'm very disappointed that Audible strongly recommended this mess.
I enjoyed this book even though it was different than I expected. I thought the narrator did a great job. I would love to see this made into a movie someday :)
If you are looking for a book that will hold your interest and with well developed characters along with a surprisingly good story, then this book is for you. There was nothing about the book that I did not enjoy.
Not my typical genre but the storyline was interesting and the book was well paced with few parts that dragged on needlessly. Well written and imaginative.
This is my first exposure to Mr. Porter. He did a great job.
I like the character development in general. Distinct and I was able to conjure up great visuals of how each character would look. I like when that happens. I especially liked the banter of Nate and Veek and their humorous sides.
Never have time for print.. Love audio
The most memorable parts are how the author details the characters without over detail. And the use of imagery is really well done. also, a very climatic ending.
Nice work of science fiction written superbly and experienced the same.
When room 14 is explored and understood it makes your eyes pop out
OK.. well no
Worth the read and possibly a second read to capture the authors finer thinking of his imaginary landscape
A good read!
First of all, I like that 14 is not the macabre story that I thought it would be. It is a really great story about ordinary people pooling together and utilizing their individual talents to solve a common mystery. Though bordering on science fiction 14 can't truly be labeled as science fiction.
Ray Porter is to be commended for his performance. There are many distinct characters both male and female in the story. I thought it amazing that Ray Porter could speak in character at all times for each character.
Perhaps the ending.
yes, a fun read and/or listen
the characters and the green roaches
the roof get togethers
nothing extreme....just enjoyable
enjoy this listen
This is a very fun story, appropriately creepy, paid homage to Lovecraft's foundations to horror but expanded on the story concept in a way that was both interesting and satisfying. The characters were relateable and I found myself easily envisioning the situations as they arose. I really enjoyed this book
It was okay, but the plot was really slow.
Yes, he did a great job differentiating the characters.
