Really enjoyed the narrator, and the story was a fun read a little quirky at the end but Iwould reccomend.
It's in the top tier. I believe it was categorized under mystery or fantasy, It's more science fiction to me. (Weird Fiction is the most fitting name) Sci-fi fans should not be afraid, this book is great, though it takes a while to get to the really cool science stuff.
Nate, the main character is hard not to like but I think Tim's secret past made him more entertaining.
The narration was above average, I'm not sure what it added though. It would have been better if the character voices were a little more discernible. All the women sounded the same, and not very feminine. This is not a reason to avoid, I'm just nit-picking!
If we can count on you - Scooby Doo - I know we'll catch that villain!
Yes, the last 1/4. The payoff was uneventful. I was hoping that something gripping or shocking would be revealed to make this a very memorable listen, but instead I was disappointed.
Ray Porter was awesome. In fact, but for Ray Porter I would have been unable to finish the book. His accents and tones were all perfect for every character.
No. If there is a follow-up, I would not purchase it.
Overall, it was somewhat entertaining, but I would not recommend it to anyone.
14 is a story that leads the reader to places most unexpected: At first the direction is very unclear and threatens to be a bit mundane, but as the twists and characters develop you find yourself in a world which is modern and today, but mixed in with the past in a creepy, victorian way. How did we get here?
The discovery of the reason for 14 and the necessity that reason is a great eye opener. For me it took a few pages to buy into the premise but once engaged, its a fun ride!
Great diction, voice performance, and enthusiasm for the story. I went searching for other Ray Porter performances afterwards . . .
I would like to see a squel to this book . . . but it would be tough to follow.
Yes. The narration is fantastic.
Room 14.... i won't spoil it.
Pulling down wallpaper to discover mysteries ;-)
This is probably the best book involving H.P.Lovecrafts Cthulhu mythos in modern times. If you like Lovecraft, then this book is a must.
I actually, unexpectedly, loved this book! I've read better stories, seen better characters, looked into better worlds, but somehow, Clines struck some wonderful sweet spot in ALL of these areas, leaving us with a great, fresh, INTERESTING, story. I really loved every minute of this book! I'd definitely listen again, because I was truly sad when I saw this book was at its end...
This book was much better than I was expecting. I want to rent an apartment in this building.
It has great buildup and blends historical characters in that validates it's ideas. It did not disappoint in the story or the ending.
Well done book. It's one of those you feel depressed about finishing, because you like the characters so much.
