no, one time is good enough
just the twists that the book takes are interesting as well as some history
Action, Original, Fun
Discovering the generators 1 mile beneath the building was a very memorable part of the story.
I thought Tim was a great character, and Ray did a fantastic job of making the character voices very recognizable.
There were some very funny moments in the book. I really like the quick wit and sarcasm of several characters.
Totally original concept, very well done with lots of action and suspense!
I don't think so.
I am going to go back to the Beautiful Creatures series and read book 2.
Yes - out of curiosity.
This book held my attention the whole way through and was very intriguing. However, I was very disappointed with the ending. The cause of the strange apartment building was too far out there for me.
I enjoy sci fi and fantasy, action thrillers, horror and romantic gay m/m fiction
This is a good story. It starts a bit slow but as the story unfolds the pace and suspense increase. I would rank it 8/10
I cant think of another book to compare it to. The story is unique however the theme of the story is a kind of an "end of the world" or "lets save the world" depending on how you feel.
There are many good scenes. Lot of suspense and mystery.
What you see isn't what you get
The story is definitely not what you might expect based on the cover art and the title. I think the book has potential for a sequel where they explain a bit more about the development of the "machine" and the worlds beyond our reality.
I was not expecting a horror/sci fi story, guess I should have read the presentation of the book better. When that is said, I enjoyed the most of it (except the bad gyus being flying monsters) and I found the plot innovative. Without reveling too much, a building is very central
As i said earlier it kept me listening, a different sort of book that i am used to it was packed with punches......
Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.
The good reviews led me to download this one.
Honestly I totally fail to understand why this is so highly rated.
Ray Porter did read well, so I am unable to blame the readers' voice.
Persons morphing into something other, is an OK bit of plot.
It was not the room either or the reality shifts. Instead of a
Dr Who Tardis doing Time, having something else do a reality shift was OK.
More something to do with a couple of characters who really stretched
my 'willing suspension,,,' ..... and when that went, the whole plot collapsed.
These persons were pivotal to the story.
Even my low rating is possibly too high.

Great characters who reacted realistically to events. A deeply mysterious circumstance which kept me guessing. I wanted to step inside the story and live it with the city dwellers. Engendered a sense of wonder and awe. Masterfully crafted mystery with a sci-fi core.
First and foremost: I promise not to ruin the mystery by reviewing this book. As such, I won't really mention the plot (not that I do often in my reviews because I take it for granted that anyone reading my review who would like to know about the plot can easily find a synopsis).
I listened to the audiobook version of this book and I picked it up solely on the weight of recommendations by listeners on Audible. I'm so glad I did. I would never have listened to this book based on the synopsis; it just doesn't sound like a 'me' type of book. Even now, after having listened to the book and loved it, the synopsis just doesn't do anything for me, and it certainly doesn't do any justice to the book.
The book centers on Nate Tucker and an apartment building in Los Angeles that is full of oddness. And it just gets better from there. A lot of reviewers draw comparisons between this book and the tv series LOST due to the myriad mysteries to be unraveled. I can see where they're coming from, but I actually enjoyed this book unlike LOST after season 1. And yes, some of the plot points are far-fetched and a few are a bit tired. So while none of this book is really new territory, the story was a wonderful exercise in immersion. If you want a novel that will absorb you in the story and maybe creep you out a bit, this is the book for you. Give it a chance.
I hadn't read the print version, but the audio was amazing. I felt like I was in the story.
I liked it when they first started finding the clues in each apartment and starting collaborating to link them all together.
When they opened the door to room 14.
Sometimes secrets are better left alone.
This book was amazing from cover to finish. The narrator couldn't have been a better pick. He was so talented with the way he could switch to all the different character voices and he gave everyone a personality that you could really feel come to life. This book had it all ,mystery, suspense, sci-fi, love, and some history even thrown in there. There was absolutely never a dull moment and I found myself not being able to stop listening. There are so many secrets and so many twists and turns and each page takes you farther and farther down the rabbit hole. This is a book you do not want to miss!
