Great story and even better performance. This story takes the reader to interesting and unexpected places with interesting and unexpected characters..
Everytime they dropped a great "plot bomb", another great one soon followed!

The main male one - forgot his name
14 - moving in is only the beginning!
I needed a good sci-fy read and this "hit the spot."
Say something about yourself!
Ray Porter is fantastic and kept me with this even when the dialogue felt like it was sagging a bit (not so often). There are some images that will stay with you a long time after you read it; some good, some interesting and some very scary.
Finding out why Clive and Debbie's apartment was 2-stories tall with wood paneled walls.
No, but he was great.
Not sure about that, but if it were a made-for-TV movie I'd tune in.
This was a good mystery, with fun characters and a lot of humor. I liked the way the suspense built up, and the fantastic things the gang found out. Very imaginative. The last third of the book got downright silly, but by then it was just so much fun that I had to keep listening. Plus the mental pictures were entertaining. Overall a good, light read.
I purchased this book purely on the recommendations of the other reviewers, and it was definitely worth it! I completely understand how it is impossible to really say anything about it without giving the story away, but it was a fantastically fun trip! The performance was absolutely fantastic as well. The mention of others regarding his prowess with accents was not unfounded. I definitely felt like I was hearing completely different characters, each with their own voice.
This is a book that is worth the read. Great literature? No, but sometimes you just need to read to have fun!
This book was AWESOME - the best I've read/listened to in as long as I can remember. It kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next right up until the end, and it built up to the perfect climax - to the point where I was practically yelling in my car as I drove and listened. This book combined all of the things that I love most - lots of interesting characters, mystery, history, suspense, ultimate adventures, and the narrator did a great job. I can't wait to read more by this author! My only question - when is this going to be made into a movie?
Yes. I really enjoyed the voicing of different characters. It really made the story more enjoyable.
I liked the intrigue of the plot. There was just enough mystery to keep me coming back for more of the story.
This book made me laugh out loud on several occasions. There was a lot of dry humor, too.
Really excellent book. This was my first experience with an audio book and has me hooked!
Very boring, this book could be a preteen novel if the sexual references were removed. The plot is just ridiculous and the characters are very shallow. This was pretty much a waste of a good audible credit. The only saving grace was the narrater was very good.
Very good narrator
The entire book
This was a great purchase, one of those books I just couldn't turn off. I highly recommend 14 to anyone who can take a little bit of the weird (ie, monsters). This isn't a work of literary art in the conventional sense, or a great intellectual feat. It's a gripping story that sucks you in and leaves you wanting more.
