The ending. I thought it was going someplace and it did...but not to a good place
The ending. Lots of build-up, and then....nothing
No. Mr. Porters characterizations were good, but otherwise his narration was monotone. the parts of the story that were building tension..didn't because of the narration.
Almost. It killed the time I had to kill (during my commute). But I'm glad I didn't spend time outside my commute to listening (or reading) this book.
didn't read the print.
the only other one is John Grisham's The Confession (awesome awesome listen). It's got a good solid believable story line and makes you think you have it figured out, but then you really don't.
Great narration and voice/accent differences.
I was needing a book with an actual story line and that required me to actually listen and not know the outcome before I had even heard the book. After the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy, Bared to You, the Mckenzie brothers & Tempted (which all were good books with the exception or Tempted), I needed a story with substance. I have to admit I was skeptical and only used a credit b/c other reviewers were loving this story. OH MY STARS! I am so addicted to this story. It had me hooked at Chapter 1. I love all the characters and the narrator does a really good job with the characters voices/accents. Like I said I was hooked at chapter 1 and I'm not big on mysteries, but this one is so good. I didn't need to wait for chapter 7 or 10 for the book to pick up and start gaining my interest. If your doubting yourself this is a must listen. Go ahead use that credit, it's so worth it.
I loved this book. I listen to a lot of audio books and only a few have me eagerly anticipating my commute so I could continue the story and this was one of them. It moves along briskly. The story is fun, a bit scary, and the characters are interesting and actually evolve as the plot progresses. It is self-aware but still makes you cheer for the heroes. I really enjoyed how the spookiness and intensity grew chapter by chapter by chapter. I kept thinking this would make a great movie, but given how often movies utterly fail at depicting the right mood I think I will have to be satisfied with the book. Enjoy!
I had been looking at this book for a long time, but the synopsis didn't really grab my interest. It wasn't until someone compared it to "Lost" (which i loved) that I decided to give it a shot.
I'm glad I did. It started off slow, but I like the buildup and the weirdness. It was a really good story and I ending up really loving the book.
It was one of thouse books that just pulled me in. I'll check out the Kavach again just to get that feeling again
I never knew what was about to happen - a very original sci-fi mystery
I guess it was my first, he did very well
I felt I was there, in that building
Be careful not to read to much about the book before you start, it could take some of the fun out of it!
This book ranks up there in the top 2 or 3 books I've listened to on Audible.
I love the twists and turns and the fact that just when you think you know what's going on...you don't. It's such a superb blend of mystery, sci-fi and humor that it was hard to stop listening even when I really needed to do so.
I enjoyed his portayal of all of the characters. Each character had their own style, their own personality.
If I were to talk about the part of the book that most moved me, I'd give away too much. I reached a point in the book where I had this lightbulb go off in my head and realized why some it seemed somewhat familiar and I had to applaud the author. Then, later in the book, he rewarded me by telling me that I was right. I loved it!
Just give this book a listen...especially if you're a fan of horror and sci-fi writers of the past. You'll be glad you did.
A 'page turner'! Great suspense and twists!
Vig. Dry humor; hilarious.
No. I like them long and involved.
Will definitely check out this author again!
I think this book is a really enjoyable sci-fi book, it doesn't start out as strong sci-fi at all, but if you stick with it, it will get there. I loved the modern references and they were all over the place, the only thing that is going to be bad is when all of those references are old and no one knows what they are referring to anymore. It rarely surprised me, but every once in a while something would come out of no where. Overall, I felt it was a fantastic book and hope I can get this much enjoyment out of other books I pick.
The book kept moving at a good pace. I was not sure what it was going to be about but I'm glad I got it.
The story of "Lost"
First one, but I will tray another after this book
This is a good light listen. Just enough technology to make it current and well developed charterers.
14 is one of the better credits I've spent here. I was riveted to the story the entire time, I had to stop myself from just listening to it straight through in one sitting!
The thrill and the mystery! The heart racing moments, the secrets!
He did an excellent job with the accents, men and women both. Veek's was maybe a bit too.... typical India tech support, but not bad over all. I will definitely listen to him again.
You'll only be disappointed when it's over!
