Definitely the narrator. You always knew who was talking and his timing was perfect!
Without giving it away, 14's doorway...
Any and all interaction/conversations between Veek and Nate.
I found myself laughing out loud with the witty dialogue.
You won't be sorry purchasing this book. I had a very hard time turning it off....wanted to listen to all 12 1/2 hours of it in 1 sitting.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was easy to follow while I was driving to work. The plot has lots of twists with likeable characters. The reader gave a top notch performance. It is mostly family friendly, it has plenty of action and has one mild sex scene.
Hardcore scifi fan from a galaxy far far away.
A bit of a surprise this one! Don't expect a sweeping mythology with a deep story. Strictly a modern reinterpretation of similar twilight stand alone stories from the past. However it is very well written and narrated. I highly recommend the story for a light bit of fun.
I was concerned this was going to be yet another zombi/vampire story. I tried to find out from the reviews but to no avail. I can now happily say there are none in this book.
The story is great and I was very glad that none of the reviews gave anything away. If I had know before I started it wouldn't have been as good.
Hope you enjoy it too.
This novel hooks your from the first sentence and remains suspenseful .
I would definitely recommend this book
I would love to have the author write a prequel to the main story
Fun, creative, and fairly entertaining. I agree that this is in the vein of "Lost". I'd also add that it is similar to the Twilight Zone franchise. I'm debating between 3 and 4 stars, sticking with three for now. It was fun while I read it, but like a fun summer action film, I don't know that it will be that memorable. Maybe I'll revise my review in a few weeks. I wasn't terribly drawn to the characters. It's odd to say this, but I don't feel like I really know Nate. He seems like an ordinary, average joe in his late 20s / early 30s. And he'd really like to be doing something he's passionate about. That's all you ever learn about him.
Ray Porter does a great read.
I have to say that since reading "14" I have been noticing odd panels around my house. I don't know what any of them are for...
This book is probably good for sci-fi fans but it is not a scary horror novel (as some of the reviews stated).
Books make the world a better place
I think the print version might be better only because the mysteries are passed quickly in an audiobook. The narrator, Ray Porter, does a fantastic job but as expected, he does not repeat important parts. He narrates the book once over whereas in the print version a reader can reread or re-examine certain important clues. In truth I had to rewind to re-listen because at times I had a little trouble understanding/picturing what the author was trying to convey.
I enjoyed when Nate and his friends (other tenants) were in the process of discovering the strange situations within their Kavach building and their individual apartments. We go along with them as they spy into locked places, hidden spaces and discover things that are in plain sight along with deciphering clues that are embedded into the walls, halls and beyond the bolted and chain-locked doors. I could hardly stop listening to the first half of this audiobook, which began with mutant cockroaches that are green, have one extra leg and never eat. There are numerous small mysteries that lead to the larger, greater mystery and these paired with the peculiar characters kept me interested/listening for hours on end.
Nate is the main character and he is the most aggressive about wanting to snoop around his building. I also liked Xela because she is a punk-artistic, siren who is intelligent, witty, brave and charming in a sexy sort of way, but to be fair the rest of the characters, like Tim, also have interesting personalities, backgrounds, habits and relevant knowledge, derived from their expertise or what they do for a living; and the combination of all these elements are what is needed to solve the mysteries of the Kavach Building.After listening to this audiobook I was reminded of The Twilight Zone more than the hit tv series Lost. I can see how this story and the final, most devistating mystery can fit into a Twilight episode.
Turned a lot of SF tropes on their heads
Yup. I almost did!
Am recommending it to my friends
The storyline was original
The way the book unfolded. It wasn't to slow and kept you wondering what was going on.
Excellent performance. One the best female voices I've heard.the characters were clearly defined male and female.
At times I laughed others it bummed me out. I got attached to the characters.
Its a fun original story. I have read a lot of scify,fantasy,and a few steam punk. The characters aren't frustratingly idiotic and intentionally over looking common things. Its well worth a credit and I dare say regular price..yeah I said regular price
