Unexpected Science Fiction
Can't Say I have read anything like it
He give the characters personality that I don't think I would gotten on the written page. The book was better for it.
I purchased this book based on reader recommendation and the story description. The story starts out interesting enough getting to now the characters and then builds into the meat of the story. I don't think that the story description does it justice. It builds into something more complex and bizarre than I expected. But I enjoyed where it took me.
Something's not quite right.
This is one of my favorite books. Chances are high I will re-listen to this book again.
The freaking door they weren't suppose to open. I just sat froze as I listen to them scrabble to fix their, "OF!"
His voice blended well with the character. It made it easier for me to visual the events in this book.
Some doors should remain locked, but curiosity is a bitch with no mercy.
Enjoying audiobooks daily!
I thought this was going to be a horror book. It ended up being the Scooby Gang in a sci-fi end of the world book with other dimensions! I know, right? Loved the characters and loved the twists.
My faves were Zeela and Tim because they were the most interesting and always had the best lines. Although I love Nate and Roger, too.
Tim was the best listening. He was awesome. He was interesting.
YES YES YES!
It's a good listen. Give it a go.
14 is one of the best audio books I own. I very much enjoyed the story and the narration by Ray Porter really enhanced it.
The development of the characters and the time spent on setting the scene. It pulled me in gradually and I had no idea how long I had been listening to it. Of course, the narrator was an essential part of making the characters come to life
This is the first time I've heard Ray Porter, but I will be looking for other performances for sure
1 star removed for the" convenience" factor by which I mean the convenience of having a character with the specific knowledge needed to solve the problems and challenges the group faced, especially the character of Tim. But then, if you allow for the fact that the building was being watched, then I suppose you can allow for the fact that Tim would exist.
Vague, i know but I dislike reviews that give away the plot. Listen and judge for yourself!
Sci-Fi geek. :)
The first two thirds of this book is pretty good.. A bit of a stretch of the imagination more and more as the book went on. The last quarter of the book but a bit of a stretch and slightly disappointing. Overall it was ok..
I can't tell you how many times I stayed in my car to keep listening to this book after I arrived at my destination. I couldn't wait to get back in the car to keep going!
Wow. Just wow. Buy the book. Period. Peter Clines, write the prequel, fast, please.
Like I said. Wow. Just wow. I need the prequel. Normally I write long reviews but this book I can just say WOW.
Definitely better than the print version. The narrator, Ray Porter, does a masterful job in giving each character a unique voice, even doing an Indian accent for one of them. The story was exciting but the narrator truly added to the overall enjoyment of the story.
Interesting story line that results in the building of excitement and intrigue with each chapter. The book kept me listening from the very beginning!
I didn’t read the print version.
I liked that it appeared to be one kind of story but as it went along the mystery deepened into more of a supernatural story. It kept me guessing the whole way and I was surprised at the end.
Ray did the voices including the women’s very well. You always knew which character was talking.
Move in and you may never move out again!
I think I would. It's a strange book to categorize. It's got some mystery elements, some sci-fi, some horror and more. It's got some good callback to HP Lovecraft and the strange fiction of the past. If you like any genre fiction, I think this is one to pick-up.
Opening the door to Apartment 14. You'll know when you get there. Wow, just wow.
I liked the scene of opening room 14, and then I also liked the trek underground. That had some good dialog and we didn't know what to expect.
Ray Porter does a really good job for this story. I'm not sure if he's the best narrator for a lot of genre's, but, I think this book is a great fit and he fits the characters really well. He gives each tennant a voice that really fits their character, except for maybe Debbie. She was a bit forgettable, but the rest were really solid. I wouldn't like him reading fantasy, but modern day mysteries and some sci-fi I think are good fits for his talents.
