This book is a lot of fun and is very imaginative. This may be one of the stranger books I have read but that said it fun. Characters may not be that deeply drawn but the whole idea of find out that there is a huge mystery under your feet over your head and in the walls is just really fun.
This book had great reviews, which peeked my interest. Not typically a book I would look for. It kept my attention well enough, but it isn't something I would recommend to anyone off hand. There were quite a few funny parts that made me LOL. I do love dry humor.
The narrator was amazing! Best narrator I have ever listened to. If it hadn't been for him, I probably wouldn't have finished the book.
The narrator for this story is amazing and really brings the story to life.
It was easy to get into the story - I really enjoyed the humor in the story as well as the intrigue of the building.
He really brings the story to life.
yes, I laughed out loud several times and as the ending drew near, I couldn't stop listening!
Some days the world seems very weird, but for Nate Tucker, it just doesn't stop. Moving into a strange building, inadvertently his curiosity almost destroys the world. A trite ending, but sometimes pseudo endings are the only possible way to stop the strangeness.
Older Is Not Always Wiser
I did not read the print version. So the story was completely new to me.
It is a mash-up of several genres.I have no direct comparison.
Tim was my favorite character.
Not that strong a reaction. However, the reveal of what was behind the door of apartment 14 was very well done.
Despite the slow start, you get to appreciate you discover things about the building as the characters do. Very spot on writing to make you feel a apart of the group exploring exactly what was "wrong" with their building. Highly recommended.
...makes a couple of giant plot leaps that are difficult to swallow, even for the genre.
On par with a mid-level Stephen King book. Not great, not horrible. Just okay.
The best way I can describe the writing in this book, is that someone socially awkward wrote what he thought was "cool" dialogue amongst his characters. His idea of "flirty" banter with characters uttering phrases like "don't knock it 'till you try it" and all sorts of lame sexual innuendo got old. How quickly everyone in the building became friends was a stretch, so coupled with the dialogue, there's a lot of suspension of disbelief needed of the listener. It wasn't a terrible listen (thankfully one of my favorite narrators is the voice of this book), but the story could have been better - in the blink of an eye, the action starts, but at 3/4 of the way through the book, so felt like the author either took too much time at the beginning or was rushing to get to his conclusion. Honestly, I'm shocked by how many people gave this book rave reviews.
Such a great book I pushed though it in less then 4 days. I am so happy and surprised by it. I listen too about 40 books a year w my commute to work and this book made me chew my finger nails and want to listen to it all the time. Give it a listen or read if you love H.P like most great readers then you shall be glowing after you finish it!
