I really liked friendship amongst the characters. These are people I would be friends with and their banter made me literally laugh out loud. Also, there was always a new discovery that kept me intrigued and wanting to know more.
Everything. The accents were great, I always knew which character was speaking. Porter is definitely one of the good ones.
I laughed out loud a lot, I shed some tears a couple of times and I might have possibly just stared at my computer screen at work during some of the more intense scenes b/c I just could not focus on anything but the story...but don't tell my boss ;)
Like I said, just 3 hours after finishing this book I was listening to it again; I have never done that before. I am still enjoying it even though I know what happens at the end. I hope y'all enjoy it as well :)
The narrator was amazing. He used so many different voices, and was able to master them. It really felt like you were listening to conversations between the characters.
Ray Porter was an amazing narrator and brought the characters to life.
Yes, I listen to audio books on my 3 hour commute and I did not want to turn the car off once I got to work.
This was a unique story, at least from the books that I have read. I could not have foreseen where the book ended up, and it kept me guessing.

I would: the story is very well laid out for a sci-fi tale and the characters are fleshed out very well.
Every scene when the main group of characters get together: "seeing" and hearing their interactions and banter really brought the story to a head.
The visit to the other universe.
The development of the romantic relationships.
Really a good listen!
I loved 90% of this book. The investigation of the building, the growing camaraderie of the tenants, and the slow uncovering of the mysteries was really enjoyable.
Once the full extent of the mystery is revealed, I found it not what I expected. It was just a bit too fanciful and strange. That is just my tastes. The writing was still excellent.
So I liked most of this book and think you will too.
Turn ons??? 1) Obedience 2) Respect 3) Learning to please Master. Master does not do turn offs. He guides and trains His little stooges past what does not please Master.
I really enjoyed this book. It's got a whole Lovecraft vibe to it and if you're a fan of Cthuhlu mythology then you must give this book a shot.
It's a great modern telling of Lovecraft mythology.
nope, never but will find his other books.
I got the creepy crawlies in spots.
listen to it, you won't regret it.
I really enjoyed this book - the characters were believable, and people you could relate to - either liking or disliking them. The suspense keeps building throughout the book. I generally do not like anything that is "supernatural" or futuristic - but this book had me because by the time I found out what the climax of the suspense was all about, I was completely involved. Reminds me a bit of the TV show "Lost". The narrator, Ray Porter, does an excellent job with all the different voices - the accents, the personalities come alive as he narrates.
Yes. It's a fun read that doesn't take itself too seriously but is not inane.
Scooby Doo meets Lost.
Yes! If you like a pageturner that has humor, science fiction, horror, monsters, wierd neighbors, and a mean german caretaker, this one has it all!
I really enjoyed the intertwining romances, actually...I really wanted the couples to be together.
He actually did a great job all around with the different accents, however a full dramatization would take this to the next level.
When we lost one of the main characters...wont say who and ruin it.
Sequel please??? I really want to see where these characters end up!
An actual plot that was more than a comic book plot.
It was better than the story...by far.
The beginning. Middle. And, wait for it...the end.
I can't believe that I fell for the other reviews on this site.
No. It has so many hints to what could had been a great sci-fi thriller, yet the conclusion was lame and kind of rushed. I felt like all of the sudden the author decided to make this book into a series so no need to offer now any answers to what was proposed at the begining. This book cannot stand alone but I will no bother buying any other in a possible series.
