Maybe I should have with the glowing green bugs, but I didn't see this one coming. The story pulled me in right away, although the ending was a little far fetched. Overall, still a good book. Ray Porter does an excellent job narrating. Seriously, he has a different voice for each character. I don't know how he does it. Very talented indeed. I might have lost interest if not for his narration.
Professional woman, reading constantly
The characters, the story line and the narrator ALL combined to make this book one I didn't want to put down.
The entire book was memorable. I am still thinking about it 2 days later.
I'd never listened to his reading before.......He was wonderful and I will be looking for his narrations in the future. Surprising how a narrator can make or break an audio book.
No laughing or crying but there were some great one-liners used by several of the characters.
For me, this author was a first-time read. Thanks to the reviews it got, I will continue to read this author. Highly recommend. I started reading the book, and ended up reading it through the night........you won't sleep through it.
I liked the ending... it was expected, but well done. Also, the surprise when they do get to 14.
Dialog in the book made it difficult to listen to.
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.
