Software Designer & Armchair Philosopher
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.
One of the top 10 audio books I've listened to so far.
The ending will leave you hoping for a sequel
Ray Porter's reading gives each character depth and truly unique personality.
Truly out of this world!!
Absolutely riveting! The time flew!
Not really. Characters are not interesting. No depth. The relationships have no content. Did not like what the mystery turned out into.
I was riveted by this book. Both the performance and the narrative kept me up late.
This was my first Peter Clines novel, but I doubt it will be my last! The pacing, the characters, the situations—everything works together extremely well. I don’t want to say too much about the content, because much of the fun of the book is discovering, along with the characters, just what is going on in their building. If it seems at first like a book about nothing, don’t give up … pretty soon you’ll be on the edge of your seat.
What can I say more than most positive reviews I read here ? Just that the audiobook is helped by the reader: text + him make the group of people seem like real and real dialogue among friends.
Yes. 14 is well written fun and you will to guess where it is going. Also, the performance is top notch.
The characters are unique and the story was great.
Don't want to spoil the surprise.
I thought this would be a dark story about a haunted house with a looser type as main character (which is why I hesitated to buy it). But actually it is a science fiction more than anything else, and the characters resemble those from a family soap (which is not necessarily a bad thing, when it fits the story and the mood).
Personally, I thought the story ended too soon after it has begun to get really interesting - but I can't really argue more about that without spoiling the fun.
A definite favourite
Likeable characters, mystery drip-fed in exciting and tantilising tastes... there wasn't anything I didn't like about this story!
It took me an awkward 5 minutes to get used to the narrator - his narration felt jerky at first. By minute 6 I was hooked! By minute 7 I couldn't have heard this story or any of the voices read by anyone else. Ray, you rocked this.
I'm supposed to have been at work 2 hours ago... help. I can't stop listening
