This was on of my enjoyable reads of late.
Nate. He finds himself by the end of the book.
Ray Porter does a great job with the voices and accents.
This is a great book that keeps you wanting to listen to find out what is going to happen at the end. While a little bit formulaic at the end, it was a good listen and one of the recent books that kept me hooked until the end.
This is a great story with well developed characters. The mystery involved was very inventive and fun. I found my self sucked into the the mystery myself. The book keeps giving you enough information that it moves along at a nice pace. This is the first Peter Cline book that I have experienced and based on how much I enjoyed it I would be very willing to try other books he has written.
...the book just wondered a little too far off the believability path.
I enjoy when a writer gets you to forget your belief in reality for awhile and submerge yourself into a fantastical journey, but this one was a little bit much. Ok, I can accept the strange lighting, the cold temperatures and the locked rooms. What I can't wrap my mind around is what's in apartment 14 and how it's all controlled by math and a building. And the Squales. Yep. Those were too much.
I can believe it when Audrey Niffenegger tells me that people can time travel and come back from the dead. I can also believe it when Christopher Moore says there are screaming demons in the sewer drains. But Peter Clines failed to convince me that....well, that would be a spoiler, wouldn't it?
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift that's why it's called the present
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought it may not be interesting but it caught me almost from the beginning.
When Andrew showed up at the door with his Aunt. Can't say more, don't want to spoil the plot.
No I haven't
I like the title 14
I haven't read print version.
Veec . She was funny and smart.
Ray Porter is the best narrator I have ever heard !!He is awesome!!
There were lots of moving moments.
Best audiobook I have listened to . I mean it. I loved the storyline and narrator too.
The narrater (Ray Porter) was excellent and the story line kept me on the edge of my seat!
Nate was my favorite character because he was like every other person who has no clue what their purpose is and feels like they are falling short because they don't have a clue. Gradually, he learns that he can be a leader and doesn't need to keep plodding ahead in a boring non-exsistant life.
Ray Porter brings to life all of the characters. Give them their own unique voices that are very believable
Parts of this book made me actually giggle out loud
I hope Peter Clines writes a sequel!
I'm a landscape architect by profession and an avid listener of audio books ! I particularly love the historical based fiction series, like Courteney, McCammon, and Gabaldon,. I listen in the car, while designing in my studio and most evenings.
I dont normally read or listen to the sci fi/ horror type novels, but the reviews caught my interest and Im glad that they did. I really enjoyed this creepy novel and already bought the sequel to listen to next.
The narrator did an excellent job of switching between characters...especially since some have strong accents. The interplay between the characters is probably the best part of this story. I relate to funny comments to handle moments of confusion, tension or even terror.
The story is too original to compare to another book.
No I haven't listen to the narrator before.
Some of the the mysteries start to be explained about two-thirds into the book. I didn't expect the "control room" to do what it did.
This was a fun sci-fi thriller that the listener (reader) needs to just let the story unfold and not be critical. This is a story that is meant to entertain.
This is one of the highest ranking books in my library. Not something to repeat every week but one that when you hear it again you'll pick up more you missed the first few times around.
The discovery of the hidden writings and the wave of enthusiasm that goes through the seekers as they trash their appartments and the empty one.
Portraying an average workaday Joe character he never slips the persona into 'super hero' mode.
The only thing is you do need to sleep. Yes, I'd want to do this all in one sitting.
As a hard-core sci-fi reader, I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. But thousands of great reviews can't be wrong. And they weren't.
If you can imagine a story about ancient secrets, conspiracies, history, heros, evildoers, and saving the world, then this book is for you. And a pleasing blend of sci-fi in there as well.
