The characters inter action with each other
Just great, Ray Porter's performances with close to perfect
Not laugh or cry but held my interest through the complete book. Usually I can figure out the endings not this time.
Peter Clines defaults in the last half of the book to having the character Roger using the F word continuously rather than thinking of something else to cover his part. There are many words that convey surprise, fright, fight, and such rather than the F work. When author defaults to the F word I wondering if he is too tired to use something else.
This book started off as a great mystery listen...but the last half becomes outrageously in unbelievable and not even plausible for a sci-fi read. Very disappointed with the last 1/3 of plot.
I will put this book in my top 20 for sure. The characters really come to life. Makes you think about what could be.
This book is in the Fold universe, and a few of the odder elements of that book are begun in this one - if you read/listened to Fold first, you are going to be doing some head nodding and "oh, so that's what that was" in a few places. One word of warning to new readers - the author doesn't have anything against killing off characters....
Yes, however, it is very close to being "LOST"... Not very original
Not orginal. Lacked character development. Very superficial read, not much depth and the story was disappointing.
An omnivorous fiction reader, I'm totally flummoxed by folks who " don't have time" to read for the helluva it. Prescription? Audible!
Nothing really happens in 14's understated, engaging opening chapters, but storyline progresses to a totally outta-left-field, OMG situation and eventual climax. Well-paced plot and believable characters (I recognized and LIKED these folks) in a contemp syfy/fantasy mileau. Sharp, believable dialog (Clines assumes his readers are paying attention and never talks down) and, of course, Ray Porter's a master voice actor. Look for Clines' signature green cockroaches, which crop up in (invade?) other Clines' works. Am stingey with five star story ratings, but 14 earned one of 'em. Keep writing, Peter!
