Even after reading some reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. What I got was a thoroughly enjoyable story with a strong narration. The author brought me into the mystery of the strange goings on in the apartment building. All the tenant's actions were credible to me and the story flowed nicely. It is best to not know too much in advance. I was impressed with the narrator. He built the tension when needed and did an excellent job with female voices. I had trouble putting this one down.
If you can say "I knew that would happen" after listening to this book, you lied. 14 is a great story that keeps you wondering what will happen next. Narration was not the best, there were many pauses mid sentence that took a while to get used to. Once you get into the story, you forget about the choppy narration. Overall, entertaining and enticing and I would recommend to anyone looking for a mystery/thriller.
I found myself taking my ipod everywhere just so I could listen to this book.
This is the best audiobook I have heard in a couple of years. A great mystery turns into a great sci-fi story. The characters were well developed and the story had me so involved that many times I yelled at my Ipod for a character to "run" or to instruct a character by yelling at them "don't open that door"! I also enjoyed the humor and the narrator's different vocal characterizations.
An avid reader who cherishes my time with a good book!
imaginative, futuristic, visual
Most likely not, I'm just not a big fan of this genre despite the fact that this book was well-paced and nicely written.
I haven't. He is a good narrator, easy on the ears.
No, I had to take it in parts. This book asked me to consider things outside my normal range of thinking and it took some processing for me.
It moved a little slow in parts but the story was engrossing. It just ended up being a big too "out there in the sci-fi genre" for my tastes.
The Perfect Storm! Audible, a great Audiobooks Reader and an adventure/romance in my little green iPod...
I can't believe this was a real story. I looked at all reviews and thought i would step out of my comfort zone and try a new type of book... that was a bad idea.
If there was a follow up book, it needs to be a love story between the two main characters and leave all the flying tentacles and whales alone!
I'm going to ask for a refund.
I was very happy with the story. The mundane details lead to a great and non-boring story-line.
Great voice alterations.
Started off with promise and went nowhere. Really hard to finish couldn't wait until it was over because it was so uninteresting.
voice was good story was not!
Such an interesting story, a mystery sci-fi inter-dimensional romp. I find it hard to write about without giving major parts of the story away.
Try it, I think you’ll like it.
that book was freakin awesome. i am gonna listen to it again right now. word
I really enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and the pace of the story was fast. I found that I was engaged with the mystery throughout the entire book; I had no idea what was coming next and this book kept me guessing. I felt at times that I was right there in the building with the characters, many of whom I would have loved to live next door to when I lived in apartment buildings! I am glad that I listened to this on audio, as it added to the atmosphere. The narrator did an excellent job with the different voices.
