Weird, Intriguing, Exciting
I really enjoyed the book - I could see it as a good movie. But, it was a little too far fetched for my taste. There were several times that I was questioning why I continued to read...but, I couldn't put it down!
This is great read. It starts out kinda slow, but at less than 1/3 of the way in I couldn't turn it off. I'm a sucker for shows like Fringe, and the homage the author paid to Fringe immersed me even more in the story than I already was. Resist the temptation to skip ahead and find out what's going on. For me, the best part of the book was them solving the mystery step-by-step. Peter Cline is becoming one of my favorite authors.
Cant forget the narrator. It's the same guy that does the "Joe Ledger" Novels and he is good at his job.
The narrator was perfect and played out the characters wonderfully. The characters were brought to life for me. The story was intriguing and worked wonderfully. The mystery kept me listening and not wanting to stop. A great story and wonderful narration.
Absolutely. The book is very addictive and adventurous. While there were certain plot elements that were predictable, they didn't exactly pan out the way I expected.
Top 10 books!
The ending made me cry...
no, I have not but he is excellent!
Yes, many, I don't want to give it away.
I am not usually into this genre but this was amazing! Theres something for everyone.
A few pages in, I thought the plot of this book a little far-fetched and silly. But it was actually quite inventive and entertaining. If you love mysterious rooms and tunnels, things hidden in walls and odd phenomena, then you'll probably enjoy this book, too. The characters are quirky and the crazy plot twists are humorous. All and all a light and fun story.
I enjoyed 14 immensely as a stand-alone foray into the strange.
I like the crafting of the story as a bit of a detective novel that dives into paranormal cross-over with lots of suspense. It would adapt well as a short series on SyFy. Pacing and references to current geek culture sold me.
The continuous flow.
Before Lovecraft, there was Room 14
Only gripes are the narrator's over-crisp enunciation of some words ("metal") and that though the book touched on some interesting psuedo-science and had good action, neither was filled out in much depth. A good quick read, but nothing earth shattering.
It's been a long time since I listened to a book that I couldn't put down. I found myself putting my ipod in my ears during EVERY spare moment because I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. Loved the "science". Loved the characters and the narrator made them come alive! I will definitely look at other works by this author and this narrator!!
Books and music make my world go round, and I have 9 nieces and nephews and one chihuahua who rule my heart.
In the middle
The interaction between the characters. I really got to know all of them easily.
When he wasn't speaking in an accent, and there are many, I liked Ray Porter. The editing is choppy so he sounds like a robot at times.
Cut out the cussing and this is a teen suspense novel. Luckily, I enjoy teen books so I wasn't terribly disappointed. It was too long and should have ended at least four different times. It is a fun read, but don't expect a thrill ride. More like a haunted house ride at the local fair.
This audio book is probably going to be one of my favorites. If you like the Dresden Files or other urban fantasy/sci-fi books then this book is definitely up your alley. The main character is really well developed and gives you something to cheer about. I found myself laughing out loud with the interactions with his boss and the other characters in the book. I only wish there was another story or that this was a series. I have an hour left in the story and don't want it to end. The writing style is very similar to Jim Butcher and I do think the narration done by Ray is top-notch. Ray brings life to the other characters without it seeming forced or unnatural (even the women and his accents are believable). This is one of those books that you read and re-read (or listen and re-listen) and can't believe you haven't heard of it or read his books before. Definitely worth the money and time!
