I don't understand why people seem to like this book so much. I found it absolutely ridiculous. The characters, the "mystery", the whole thing is just ludicrous. I kept listening because I couldn't believe a book this bad could have elicited such great reviews.
Probably not. It was built on surprise and intrigue.
All the twists and turns
You think you know...but you have no idea....
Its worth it.
Don't miss this one, great story, character development and narration. A little sci-fi mixed with murder mystery and fantasy. Kind of like a mixture of The Outer Limits and Scoopy Doo, most of the characters were actually given Scoopie Doo character nick names. The characters were very realistic and interesting.
Weird, Intriguing, Exciting
I really enjoyed the book - I could see it as a good movie. But, it was a little too far fetched for my taste. There were several times that I was questioning why I continued to read...but, I couldn't put it down!
This is great read. It starts out kinda slow, but at less than 1/3 of the way in I couldn't turn it off. I'm a sucker for shows like Fringe, and the homage the author paid to Fringe immersed me even more in the story than I already was. Resist the temptation to skip ahead and find out what's going on. For me, the best part of the book was them solving the mystery step-by-step. Peter Cline is becoming one of my favorite authors.
Cant forget the narrator. It's the same guy that does the "Joe Ledger" Novels and he is good at his job.
The narrator was perfect and played out the characters wonderfully. The characters were brought to life for me. The story was intriguing and worked wonderfully. The mystery kept me listening and not wanting to stop. A great story and wonderful narration.
Absolutely. The book is very addictive and adventurous. While there were certain plot elements that were predictable, they didn't exactly pan out the way I expected.
Top 10 books!
The ending made me cry...
no, I have not but he is excellent!
Yes, many, I don't want to give it away.
I am not usually into this genre but this was amazing! Theres something for everyone.
A few pages in, I thought the plot of this book a little far-fetched and silly. But it was actually quite inventive and entertaining. If you love mysterious rooms and tunnels, things hidden in walls and odd phenomena, then you'll probably enjoy this book, too. The characters are quirky and the crazy plot twists are humorous. All and all a light and fun story.
I enjoyed 14 immensely as a stand-alone foray into the strange.
I like the crafting of the story as a bit of a detective novel that dives into paranormal cross-over with lots of suspense. It would adapt well as a short series on SyFy. Pacing and references to current geek culture sold me.
The continuous flow.
Before Lovecraft, there was Room 14
Only gripes are the narrator's over-crisp enunciation of some words ("metal") and that though the book touched on some interesting psuedo-science and had good action, neither was filled out in much depth. A good quick read, but nothing earth shattering.
