I downloaded this book on a whim because it was advertised and well rated. Well since then I have had my mother, wife, and best friend read the book through kindle purchases I have made. This book is well paced and keeps you very interested. I agree with the synopsis that it is somewhat like combining the TV show Lost ( and there is even a reference to it) with a haunted mansion. The characters are well through out and each have a distinct personality with interesting back stories. The characters are further brought to life through great voice acting and narration. This book was a welcome surprise and I highly recommend it!
This book is just enjoyable all the way through. The mystery enthralls and has the right amount of humor and fantasy without being trite or too over the top. I chewed through this book at every available listening time. I can't recommend it enough.
14 does a perfect job of doling out the perfect amount of information about the mystery to keep you on the edge of your seat without revealing too much. The revelations at the end are enjoyable and well done. The characters are a little plain but the fun of exploring the apartment building with the main character is enough to keep me enthralled with every minute of the book!
Absolutely! Only work and sleep kept me from listening to this in one sitting... and even then... I did sneak two lunch breaks with my book.
This was a great book!!! Enough suspense, enough action, really good character development....I wish I could see this charaters in another boook.
If you like Stephen King or a book surrounded by a location , like a building in this case, you'll like this.
Yes, I'd recommend it. The plot is released a little at a time, and it's not easy to figure out.
Don't remember his name, but he was the main character. Why? Don't know--he was likeable.
Not sure, but he was a good narrator.
I wouldn't make a film of ths one. It's a good story to read or listen to.
Give it a try. 80% of the story is really good. Like many stories, the 'punchline' could have been better, but it wasn't bad.
I would recommend this book to anyone that loves horror/zombie/survivalist fiction, of course, but I would also recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a gripping, character-driven story. This book won't enlighten or edify, but it's a fine way to spend an afternoon or two.
I loved this book because it reminded me of great Stephen King - a really good story just for the sake of a really good story.
Yes. Had a great time and it was refreshingly orginal.
In orginallit, American Gods but more fun and somewhat lighthearted.
Sorry but the nerd voice. But I like nerds. Loved the torchwood reference!
I just spent a week touring the Baltic states and listened to this book as we sat on the bus. It was great. Wondered if there was a RUssian version of Cavendish House.
This listen was a positive experience for me, but just barely. The best way that I can describe my listening experience was mildly entertained. The good character development originality and mystery element of the story is what stands out as some of the many positives for this book. Nevertheless, as the story unfolded I started to lose interest due to the fact that there were too many implausible story elements. I liked the writers style of prose and felt very connected while listening, but the story itself just didn't feel plausible at times. It isn't that I felt that there was no way I could ever accept what the author was asking me to believe, it was more that I felt the author didn't lay enough factual foundation to allow me to suspend my own disbelief. In short, there must have been at least a half-dozen moments where I found myself saying, "Oh come on now!" Also, the story unfolds in a cutesy kind of way, sort of like a Scoobie Doo episode. Despite the author's attempts to diffuse this problem by introducing Scoobie Doo jokes among the characters, I felt that this only made the situation much worse. Think Dan Brown hybridized with the writers of Scoobie Doo and you would have a pretty close mental picture. Don't get me wrong, Scoobie cartoons are great! I loved that each one involved a creepy supernatural mystery. But, I think I'm getting a little too old for Scoobie. Now, that said, I am a forty year old, so I have already been beaten down by the world and am no longer as open-minded as I once was! As such, I could see this book being a big hit for those in their teens or early twenties.
The reader was amazing! I was sick in bed and did not want to even read....I turned this on and was hooked. Now I expect every Audible to be this entertaining.
The giant demon...as Ray read in a horrifying voice....Food! Prey! Meat, Mine!
Scared the crap out of me...excellent reader.
Yes, it's a interesting book
