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.
So initially I found this book hard to categorize (my general categories that I finally picked are general enough not to ruin any reveals), but like an onion it all finally peeled back to a reveal (not completely, but enough that I wasn't angry that more info wasn't given). To beat the concept into the ground, this onion was then cut apart, battered, deep-fried and served with a side of thousand islands sauce. Yeah, the book was that good. Blending a bunch of different characters together into a cohesive story of a seriously, seriously weird LA building into a story that really made it painful at times to stop reading/listening to this book. I don't want to go into any more details as a lot of the fun in this is the incremental approach, and the engaging characters, that made this book so much fun.
This may be my favorite book from 2014 (only another 6 weeks to be bested).
While I generally associated the reader with the Joe Ledger series, I think he did an awesome job with this book as well.
It took a while to get the story started. I was fine until they opened apartment 14. The story then took off on a tangent that I was not expecting. I liked Tim but all the characters were good. I was glad for the mix of age groups to show that they can all get along when they have a common goal.
It was so-so.
No. I think all the loose ends were cleared up by the end. What else could the author do with this story line?
This book kept me company during two nights when I was suffering insomnia from jet lag.
the last 25% of the book is awful, it started very good but making it finish like a bad hollywood movie is very disappointing
the story at the begining is very interesting
Yes. I thought the author wrote an endearing story that captured my interest from the beginning. I liked the characters, found them believable and enjoyed their banter. I loved Ray Porter's performance. I really thought he captured the characters essence in his different voice.
There were many, however most of them were associated with the team working together to solve the buildings mystery. It did have shades of Lost in it.
That's a hard question. I liked all the characters and their difference eccentricities.I think Nate stood out as the leader and the person who kept things moving along.
