I liked this a lot - it was very suspenseful and fast-paced; the author did a great job of building the story and making it very creepy. The characters were interesting and engaging, and the underlying premise is really cool. The narrator did a FANTASTIC job of creating a unique voice for each of the characters, and considering how many there were, that's impressive. You could easily tell which character was speaking regardless of how it was communicated via the words. I will look for more by both this author and this narrator.
This is well worth the listen if you like horror and have high standards for it.
The characters feel real and you appreciate the contemporary setting. Sometimes these stories feel farfetched to the point you are pulled out of the story. However, in 14 the progression feels natural and character's reactions to extraordinary events are genuine.
Imagination at work!
How unexpected it was. I enjoyed the developing relationships of each character which ultimately lead to the major surprise of the novel!
I will listen to 14 again. Everytime I re-listen to an audio book, I get more out of the story. Very similar to re-reading a book.
The opening of Apt 14
The different voices were very good. I did have one problem with the speed of his reading.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
3.5 overall. Slow to start off. I am not as big of fan of the narrator as other reviewers. He was okay, but I don't think he was as wonderful as everybody was saying. His accents were okay, but when he just read in his normal voice he was a little dry. I will admit that I sometimes dread the beginning of books because they have to build up the story, and sometimes it takes a while. This one took about half a book. I ended up listening to a short story in between because I wasn't as excited to get back to the book as a good book would make me. And once it started to pick up it went into super drive. Of course that doesn't mean it was good. It was an okay book with monsters that have been done before. Too many characters to have any connection with any of them and it took forever to introduce them, although they were likable. It was probably worth a BOGO free sale (which lucky that’s how I got it), but I wouldn't use a whole credit. Try Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia, it rocks.
I often find myself listening to a long series. This was a nice break in my routine and made me want to listen to it twice. I especially liked how the narrator handled the personalities and voices of the characters.
I loved this book. It had so many elements and the narrators ability to include so many accents added to the listening experience. I didn't want to stop once it really got into the story of the building and didn't see some of the twists and turns coming. I love when a book draws me in so much, raises questions, and leaves me wishing the story could go on and continuously develop. This is an excellent sci-fi mystery. I don't want to say much more or I may accidentally give away some important plot points.
I absolutely love this book. I wish there was a sequel! The narration was great and the storyline was humorous. I am not a big sci-fi person but this book had me hook and seeking for more. If you are looking for a book to keep you on the edge of your seat, this is it! One purchase you will not regret.
Give me more
Tim, I like his backstory
yes, I did not get borred
Yes but I do not want to spoil
A fun journey with unexpected turns and twists
Sure, it is a good sci-fi mystery book. Good story, enjoyable characters.
I was not expecting the last 8 chapters. The story showed no signs of what the ending would be.
Great performance, distinct voices for each charecter.
No, it was a good listen to at work book.
I thought this book was a time travel book, it does touch on that but it is more of a mystery than a time travel book. But it is a good story and worth a listen.
