the book was freaking awesome. The narrator was amazing and really enabled me to get into the book
It would have to be a tie between Tim and Nate. They were awesome. Felt like i really knew them.
This is my first one. wont be the last.
Keeps you guessing, and wanting more.
I know it the whole point of an audiobook but they dont always have the knact this one really made me feel like i could picture everything i felt like i was there well done such a great book
I only got it because it was on special and had good reviews, so I took a chance.
This is a well written story and it did not disappoint.
It didn't take long for me to take such an interest in the characters that I drove the long way home a couple of times.
To tell about the story would spoil it, so I wont give it away.
To say I am impressed with the voice acting is an understatement. Ray Porter did an awesome job. I would have given 6 stars to his performance if I could.
The narrator did an excellent job with the voices of the cast, but his base narration style was so dry I had trouble concentrating on the story. His delivery of the main female character was somewhat flat, and I never fully connected to her plot-line.
The story itself was engaging at first, and the mystery of the building was exciting. The visual descriptions made the building a character of the story. Unfortunately, when the mystery started being solved, the book jumped the shark. I stayed through the end, but was not satisfied by the overall experience.
What a ride!
This book had so many twists and turns it was hard to see where it was going, but once it was all revealed, it held up strongly. It was a fun, great listen!
I loved his performance of the various characters (and there were many!). He put a lot of thought into how they sounded and was able to carry it through the entire story. I also love his voice.
You don't want to know what's behind all the doors...
I couldn't stop listening to it. I try to dole myself out 2-3 hours of listening at a time. I basically inhaled this book through my ears.
Loved the narrator ! A++++ unfortunately, the story went way off-track with every sci-fi cliche thrown into the overstuffed plot. If the story had kept it's focus on the original premise, diverse tenants in a creepy apartment building, this would have been so much better.
It was suspenseful and engaging from start to finish. It's a mystery that is filled with twists and turns and references to other works in the scifi genre
author of "Starfish"
Great writing. Porter's rich and varied narration is tops.
I wish I knew of other books to compare to "14". I hope to find more!
Aside from the wonderful way he has of individuating the characters, Porter's performance allows the listener to experience the rhythm and cadence of the writing. I write and teach creative writing, so it's icing on the cake, to learn craft from the performance.
I need to think about that. There are so many directions you could go with this.
Clines pulls off a rarity - one heck of a read with very little (if any) of the graphic stuff that's become the hallmark of our culture. Likeable characters, great dialogue, a well paced story, and no zombies or vampires! What's NOT to love??
I'm comfortable giving this to a grandmother or a high schooler. How many books can you say that about?
I hope to read more like this. : )
Narrator fit the character
Loved the story line, depth and unpredictability
Liked it so much I started it over as soon as I finished it!
An exciting, creative story that is well narrated and sprinkled with nerd humor and pulp references. 14 made a cross country road trip so entertaining.
To be honest, everything. From beginning to end I was captivated. I didn't want the story to end. This was my first experience with Peter Clines' books and it won't be the last. I woke up from a nap during a cross country road trip and this was on. I was instantly hooked. If I had run across this book I probably would have dismissed it and moved on because its genre is not really in my wheel house of interests. I would have missed out.
The voices that Ray Porter can create are out of this world. You loose the fact that it was just Ray Porter while listening. I'm a fan.
