I guess the best thing about a novel is how it grips your attention and you simply have the feeling of not being able to stop listening. It took me by surprise and shook me to the core! It does NOT fit into any one genre! There is science fiction for sure, horror- oh yeah, mystery-you bet, and it just kept on going, morphing throughout its twists and turns!
Great Narration by Ray Porter!
If there's a plot here, I missed it. I'm two and a half hours into the book and I'm still not sure what the point is. Yes the building is a mystery, the people are mysteries, but so too is the plot. I got the book based on reviewers, but fail to see why they call the book intense when it seems so trivial.
Tell us about yourself!
I zoned out a few times, missing some “hopefully” mundane information, but my intrigue increased toward the last 6 hours of the book.
I can't think of a book to compare this to. The beginning of the book started so slow I could not imagine what the outcome would be.
I have not
Nothing I can think of
This was, hands down, one of the oddest books I've ever read/listened to. The comparison to an adult version of a Scooby Doo story is apt. It's like that, but somehow even more insane.
I will say, I liked the first 2/3 of the book a lot. The last 1/3 just goes completely off the rails and even for someone who loves weird books, it gets WEIRD.
For those of you expecting a thrilling suspenseful story of awe and horror, um, this isn't it. It's odd, it's playful, it's a bit immature but it is kind of worth the time you put in.
I have no idea if I recommend it or not.
Great characters, original story, well read. This is a great listen and I'm a jaded audiobook reader. Believe me, you will not guess where this one goes.
The narrator sounds like he finds the characters and situations dull. This makes for tough listening. I am continuing to listen, but it takes work.
Probably not. The story is average and the narrator below average.
His intonation is repetitive and lacks an interest in most of the characters and the story. I felt like a child being read a bedtime story by a bored parent who was just praying I'd fall asleep.
This story would make a great movie. I'd love to see this whole thing play out on screen. The characters in this story were just like people I know which made it all the more enjoyable. I can't think of a single moment in the book that dropped me out of the story. Some books run along great until they hit a snag that drops you out of the plot. This book was great right out to the end.
The first moment on the roof of the building was great. I've had that same moment before myself which made me laugh!
I found myself looking for moments to restart the audiobook because I didn't want to put the story down. I sat for extra minutes in my driveway when I got home. A good read.
Avid audiobook addict!
Poorly developed characters, ridiculous dialogue. Not entertaining at all. Waste of a credit.
right up at the top, it was not what I expected and that's a good thing
The unexpected plot twists and unusual development
No spoilers, just follow Tim's character and watch it grow
excellent book and fantastic narration, strongly recommend
Yes. It was interesting. I did find the build up to the action a bit slow, but it didn't take away much from my enjoyment.
No. The beginning several chapters sort of bored me and I had to force myself to keep going, but I was rewarded with a really well written science fiction/horror story at the end.
Definitely pick it up if you like the idea of different dimensions and government cover ups.
