Takes a little bit to get going, but I really enjoy the world Peter Clines created. Things really take a different turn for the final act, but I was engaged the entire time.
While I'm a fiction lover, I understand that most fiction is derived from imagination. The author does a great job adding aspects to the story that could in fact be non-fiction.
Narrator: does a great job portraying different characters!
Overall: a great listen. I found myself a new author!
The story is nicely done, starts slowly and builds suspense. Interesting ideas and characters. Uniquely well done. There's no way you can guess what's in room #14.
I listened to the book during work and it was a really interesting story. It was difficult to get over some of the narrator's voices. I really liked some of them, but so many of the guys in the story came across as air-head surfer dudes and I couldn't get over it. The author made some really fun characters, though most of them were very cliche and fell into typical stereotypes. The thing that really takes the story down a notch for me though is how non-frightening the 'scary' monster actually was and how lame the 'family' and 'cult' ended up being. There seemed to be a number of things that didn't really fill much of the book except for progressing the story.
However, it was worth the listen
I can honestly say that this is the worst book I have ever read in 49 years!
I was misled by the positive reviews, and I want to make sure that those looking to select this book after me, have a review that tells the truth before they waste their time and money on this book.
This book goes beyond science fiction into the absurd. I couldn't be more disappointed in a selection. Buyer beware.
This book is great on the audible version.
There is a great deal of dialogue and I personally do not like to read a book such as this.
Character development is good. Ray Porter's voice and accents very enjoyable.
The development of the story was appropriate and the ending, although a bit futuristic was well described.
