Tell us about yourself! I first started listening 2 audio books while driving a semi-truck. My wife has bad heart, that's y we live n Az.
Yes, It held my attention throughout the entire read. The author, Mr. Peter Clines, has quite the imagination.
This is the first that I listened 2 by, Mr. Peter Clines. I will find my way 2 more of his audio books. I found this 2 b a very playful book. There r some very sad moments n it but I also found it 2 have authentic realism and dedication of the characters 2 one another and their purpose. I enjoy books that hold my attention throughout. There was always suspense mingled with a great amount of the unknown. U know it's a terrific read when n the end the hero can walk away with his love tucked under his arm.
Ray done a terrific job as usual.
As I mentioned b4, that the author has a great imagination. It did make me think of the great abilities of other people 2 make us laugh or cry. I did neither, I had a hunger 4 the hero 2 prevail.
While this was an engaging story, I would not likely listen to it again. The narration was well done, but the story itself wasn't altogether believable. One thing that makes great fiction is its ability to convince the reader of its reality and this just didn't do it for me.
Ray narration was very capable. His character voices and accents were convincing and his narrative was paced perfectly.

Part Sci-fi, part mystery, “14” does a good job of keeping the reader guessing what will happen next. The author does a good job a building the mystery piece by piece and while allowing the reader to get to know the characters. The book has a couple of twists and about half way through I thought I knew what going to happen and I was pretty close but way off on the who. The group is able to keep their heads throughout the tough parts of the story which makes it fun and entertaining. If you’re looking for a fun book with a mysterious plot and some jokes mixed I think it might be what you’re looking for.
Ray Porter does a great job narrating this between all of the characters voices and a couple of accents.
Just a regular guy
This book is about a building full of little mysteries. You'll keep asking yourself "why is that like that?" & "What does that mean?" & "How will the author explain that and what part does it play in the story?". By the end you'll get answers that all fit together. The characters are believable and several are a little mysterious themselves. I always was disappointed when I had to stop listening.
It's hard to write a review of this book that doesn't give away some of the wonderful secrets that make it such an enjoyable listen. I'd say--if you like steampunk, you will like this, even though it's not a steampunk book. If you like mysteries that go to unexpected places. If you like stories with a good sense of humor.
Plus, the narration is great, with super strong voice acting for characters of both sexes. I hope that Clines and Porter will team up on many books to come.
not what I expected, way more mystery, adventure, action, comedy, sci-fi...... didn't even know that I like sci-fi.
I like the characters and the possibility.
No but I am searching my next buy based on Narrator not Author.
If it wasn't as long as it is, yes I would have listened in one sitting.
I loved the book but loved Ray Porter just as much. He is an awesome narrator!
Suspenseful, Entertaining, Well-Narrated
This book reminded me of some of Sydney Sheldon's better stories. The chapters are fairly short (about 80 in all). Each one makes you want to keep going with the story. Usually I just listen to audiobooks in the car, but I found myself taking my device into the house and listening any time I could find a few minutes.
Mr. Porter is very easy to listen to. He handled character voices well.
Absolutely! I enjoyed it so much, I plan to listen to it again, or possibly buy the book in paper form.
Some stories are fairly predictable, which can be a bit of a disappointment. This one was not. The story was well-thought out, and had a good balance of narrative and dialogue. I wasn't expecting the science-fiction element, and rarely read or listen to this category of work. I am happy I didn't pass on "14". I truly enjoyed it.
It's a mystery that just keeps getting bigger and more amazing as you go.
It's a well written and very fun book. Ray Porter's performance as narrator really brought it to life. The Characters are very believable and vivid.
Some Locks Should Never Be Opened.
14 was a very fun and engaging story. The WOW factor just kept getting bigger with every new turn. Some things were telegraphed wayyyyy ahead and weren't as surprising as maybe intended, but still made for a good story.
I am glad I listed to it and would recommend it; but once was enough. I don't typically read sci-fi books but I really enjoyed this one. Was a nice change of pace and didn't have any problem finishing the book. Good story.
It is very close to the top. I will be buying some more of Peter Clines books right now.
Probably finally openening 14
He is a GREAT narrator. Buy the end I thought there were 5 or 6 different people reading he book. Loved him and will look for more books that he has narrated.
Very close. There are several spots that you cant stop listening to tell it reaches the climax. Then you get a break building up to the next one.
Sci-Fi, Fiction, Real world meets not even close to real world. It all works
