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!
This was recommended to me by a friend as a fun summer read, and she was right! Fast-paced, a little weird (a compliment from me), but not too deep. The reader was pretty good and switched between characters well enough.
yes, It's a cool story that takes a turn and some twist.
the opening of the door 14. And the other side of the mind melting world.
when some of the tenants went to the other side and learned what they were living in.
the mystery of the building with Nate and learning what was under the paint on the walls.
I'd say to every one that this is a good story.
One of the best books I have read in a long time. Really loved the characters and the storyline. Reminded me a lot of the move "the mist" but way better. Also reminds me of the TV show Fringe, which even got a reference in the book. Lots of fun Scooby Doo references also.
Everything you could want in a thriller/mystery/scifi story. Well worth reading.
I hope they make a movie out this outstanding book. Soon.
It's up there as one of the best thrillers/mysteries I've ever listened to.
Books by Stephen King or Dean Koontz.
I don't want to spoil this for anyone...but I will say that choosing just one scene would be very difficult.
If I could have listened to it in one sitting, I would have. I will admit that on one day the fridge and kitchen cupboards got a very thorough cleaning and on another passers by must have wondered why I was sitting in my car in the supermarket carpark for so long.
The fantastic narration and superb writing make this book an all round winner.
I couldn't put this book down. I couldn't wait to get to the end.
I was a little let down by the end. He seemed to sell out. And the book got complicated about two thirds of the way through. And i loved the references to Scooby doo throughout the book;.
no, i have not.
I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book. I enjoyed it, and wanted to read it. I loved it, and listened to it for several hours at a time but it didn't make me laugh or cry.
One might have a greater appreciation of this booj if one is familiar with the work of Lovecraft.
