Weird, Creative, and Characters
The suspense. You will literally be in suspense for the entirety of the book. THE ENTIRE BOOK! I don't know how he does it, but you think you have guessed the outcome and you don't even come close. You keep hearing the "ooohhh, oooohhh Noooo, ... watch out around that corner...." and then .... more suspense. It was great.
Buckle in because you just have to know. You will spend the necessary hours getting to know, love, and want to help the cast of characters (aka your new friends and people you wish were your neighbors instead of the crazy ones you have now). Once you find the answer, you will ask yourself was it worth the journey and find out that it was. This is a fun read and the suspense does not ever get too much or make you not want to sleep at night. I highly recommend this book.
Hilarious horror mystery
The cast of characters is wonderful. You feel like you're living in the building with them.
I have, more than once.
A different take on other dimensions
Really entertaining as long as you don't think about the science too critically
I love my audiobooks! Great for traveling.
Yes I would definately recommend the book. The characters were somewhat comical and the little mysteries throughout keeping you listening.
Raised a Christian, I have a belief in God. Towards the end of the book, the other dimensional monster was compared to God.There was also a religious character in the book who turns out to be the bad guy. It made me wonder, is this how the author looks at God.
To me, when listening to my audio books I like narrators who are not monotone. When the narrator reads, you can sense the emotion of the character. All the characters sound different so you can envision what they look like.
Well inspires me the next time I move into an apartment that just feels off, to leave ASAP.
The book is a great listen. It has its funny moments. I understand that everyone has their own religious beliefs. I was just a little taken aback towards the end.
I love the group adventure! Also, the first-person narrative is great. The narration is energetic while remaining subtle throughout the book, so it fits the story and the main character perfectly.
The Goonies meets Twilight Zone - a great adventure with a mind-blowing mystery centered around a unique house.
Tim or Veet may be my favorite. But, Nate and all the other characters are awesome, too. Each character's voice is distinct and well-suited for author's description.
Ray Porter does an awesome job with this book!
Steampunk/sci-fi/IT nerd with a penchant for humor and atheism. History texts get equal time with webcomics.
I really didn't know what I was getting into with 14. I read the plot summary, sort of assumed it was a mystery/crime novel, and didn't think twice about or notice that it was listed under sci-fi, and recommended based on my other reads.
I would very much like to leave the surprise in place, so I won't really get into the story or plot or characters, which leaves me wondering how to properly review this. I have decided merely to say that it is probably the most engaging audible title I've listened to thus far, and beyond that I can't imagine anyone not liking this book. Well, anyone with interests in mystery, science fiction, tongue-in-cheek word play, media referencing, brass and gauges, and human connections anyway.
My only regret now is that I waded through other books that I would rather have just stopped listening to before getting to this on my queue. I'd recommend this book to everyone.
It was truly different from the books I have been listening to most recently. I just didn't know where the story was going and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride.
I guess that's the charm of the book, it is different. The beginning felt, to me, a bit like The Secret History but unlike that book, which ended with a thud, just as I felt 14 slowing down, it kicked up again in a whole new way. Very satisfying
We all love the reveal, is that the prestige? The exploration of the building was the best.
I picked up this book on a whim, the cover art catching my eye. I can't tell you how surprised I was by the quality of the story. From the first page to the very last word it had me hooked. I can absolutely see why people compare this book to some of H.P. Lovecraft's best. Hands-down the best feature of this story was these way in which it was written. The author built the suspense slowly, always raising it to me levels
I haven't listened to any of ray porter's other performances. While he did a good job differentiating between the male and female voices, I had some trouble distinguishing the voices of several of the male characters. He was spot on for general narration and his accents were excellent and unobtrusive
If I had one complaint about this book it was the fact that I could not sit and listen to it in one sitting because I have a life. I spent most caring around iTablet turning it all possible. It definitely
I've already recommended this book to all of my friends who love H.P. Lovecraft. Additionally I would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense and a bit of good old-fashioned Mystery/horror/crazy making writing
The entire premise was pretty interesting all the way through.
A mystery/horror/humor mashup, what's not to like?
I listened to a couple of Jonathan Maberry's books narrated by Mr. Porter and he keeps delivering. He held up the Maberry stories and enhanced this one with a unique delivery.
Clines is a great writer. He doesn't seem to take himself to seriously and his books convey that in likable characters and inventive plots.
Oh my, Excellent book, loved the dialog, narrator was superb. I wanted to listen till it was done, I don't remember feeling that way about a book for a long time. This book was out of my norm, but I will be hunting up more from this author and the narrator. Heart pounds with anxious fear. Can't wait to start it over. Get it. Enjoy it.
