It was weird, and just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder, it gets weirdest. Very enjoyable book from start to finish.
Beautifully written book made one step better by the flawless narration of Ray Porter.
I truely haven't read anything that comes close to what this is about... a genre that I think I'll explore further.
First time listening to Ray Porter and I would say he is now one of my favorite narrators. I'll be looking for more of his work. Great accents, flawless character cross overs & a great voice to listen to, you are in the story straight away.
Sometimes curiosity can take you to the brink....
This book reads like a movie script. One that I would look forward to seeing on the big screen.
I truly enjoyed this author's work. The story line is not the major calling, it's the characters and their interactions. Uncomplicated but completely interesting players in an intriguing plot. The plot is not complex but I did find it remotely possible which makes for interesting thought processes. I enjoyed this book very much.
Ray Porter is also on my list of new favorites! He did a tremedous job in spinning this tale.
As soon as I finish this review I'll be looking for new readings from this narrator along with other works from this author.
What an original story! I enjoyed it even more the second time I listened to it. I rarely re-listen to books, but this one was so good, I shared it with others on a road trip. I caught more details the second time and everyone enjoyed it tremendously!
I chose this book due to the great reviews and I have to agree with them, it was a brilliant read, great story brilliant narrator. Different to what I would normally read but well worth it.
I don't want to give anything away
Brilliant best narrator I have listened too yet
Even though the reviews were great I am always a little skeptical, but I can say this book really delivered. I found the writing, the narrating, and the story very entertaining. Ray Porter does a fantastic job of narrating. I never got tired of listening to him. I found I couldn't wait for the next time I could listen to the book. I went through it in a week which is fast for me. I found myself chuckling at some of the character dialog which I don't do very often. The character build was great and I found myself caring for the them. It is very well written in my opinion. It had all the elements that I enjoy - suspense, adventure, comedy, and a little scare now and then.
The only reason I gave it four stars for the story is it got a little crazy at one point but it still flowed well overall. This is just a personal opinion.
I could go for a sequel!
I did not read the book, only listened.
I've never read a book like this. I might compare it to Dr. Who, The Twilight Zone or The Time Machine (which I did read). But this book is unique.
I liked 3 characters the best, Veek, Nate and the old "publisher".
Some parts of it I could not stop listening to, I had to continue the story, but some parts I needed to think about.
Really good story! I highly recommend itl.
It does rank rather high on my list.
It surprised me how much I liked the story as aliens have never been my favorite materials for a book. It was exiting and the aliens not so much in front as the battle of the tenants in the house.
I liked everyone. Thank you Ray Porter, I thoroughly enjoyed your narration.
I probably would have if I had had the time!

Shades of steampunk. Mystery. Science fiction. Thriller. Historical characters. Lots of fun stuff in this story with interesting twists. I especially liked the way he tied in **REDACTED**.
I am relatively new to this genre and did not suspect that I would enjoy it so much. The story is engaging, exciting, crazy, unbelievable and scary and the characters ring true. I found my self wanting to listen way past my 40 minute drive home. In fact I whizzed through this book so fast that I know I will be looking for another Peter Clines book soon.
