I bought this book looking for something new. Something a bit outside my usual selection. What a good surprise! I had a great time listening and Ray Porter gives it justice. Good story well constructed, endearing characters, and good plot. A narrator that gives it depth...and I can't wait for my commute to listen to the next chapter. Good book Peter Clines.
While other readers / listeners complain about the slow pace until the last third I actually enjoyed the beginning more than the end which seemed like a mixture of sci-fi horror mystery action movie. Until then the story about strange characters living in a weird building is admittedly slow but easy to follow, at times even fun. I don’t know any other books from this author but “14” was convincing enough to give it a try if something else from him comes along the way.
The narration was excellent. Kudos to give voice to so many different characters in one go!
I got the book because of the Ex series. I was not disappointed! Every little clue sucked me in to the point I listened to this virtually straight through without stopping. It is different, fantastical, and entralling. very pleased! The narrator, Ray Porter did a great job on this too.
Very engaging story and great narration. I felt the setup was a little better than the last act, but definitely enjoyed the book. I usually read thrillers so this was a nice change of pace.
had a lot of fun listening to it. narrator was good. didnt struggle to catch hold of anything. got it on sale and was worth it.
Thank you to all the previous reviewers of this book. I really enjoy Audible, one of the most important reasons are the honest and well thought-out reviews.
I bought this book based on those reviews and I'm so happy I did. I loved this book. I listen on my long commutes to and from work. This is one of those books that had me driving in the slow lane, behind semi's, taking detours....you get the point.
One of the things that I enjoyed most was that when I thought I had it all figured out, I was wrong, or only partly right, or Son of b... why didn't I see that coming? Ray Porter is also an excellent narrator. He is the kind of narrator that I can lose myself in, and nothing he does breaks my focus/mental immersion.
Just buy it, listen, enjoy.
This book was scary, funny, weird, and extremely entertaining! I absolutely loved the narrator. His ability to change voices was outstanding. I couldn't stop listening to this nor could I stop telling my friends that they needed to buy this immediately. You should too!
Listen to all kinds, but mostly enjoy witty light-hearted entertaining reads. Stay away from romance novels & books with heavy violence.
Enjoyed listening to it. No real bad language or mature content, but could be mildly scary towards the end for little ones to overhear.
