Say something about myself! Or about yourself! Or something!
Ray Porter is fantastic and kept me with this even when the dialogue felt like it was sagging a bit (not so often). There are some images that will stay with you a long time after you read it; some good, some interesting and some very scary.
Finding out why Clive and Debbie's apartment was 2-stories tall with wood paneled walls.
No, but he was great.
Not sure about that, but if it were a made-for-TV movie I'd tune in.
This was a good mystery, with fun characters and a lot of humor. I liked the way the suspense built up, and the fantastic things the gang found out. Very imaginative. The last third of the book got downright silly, but by then it was just so much fun that I had to keep listening. Plus the mental pictures were entertaining. Overall a good, light read.
This book was AWESOME - the best I've read/listened to in as long as I can remember. It kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next right up until the end, and it built up to the perfect climax - to the point where I was practically yelling in my car as I drove and listened. This book combined all of the things that I love most - lots of interesting characters, mystery, history, suspense, ultimate adventures, and the narrator did a great job. I can't wait to read more by this author! My only question - when is this going to be made into a movie?
Yes. I really enjoyed the voicing of different characters. It really made the story more enjoyable.
I liked the intrigue of the plot. There was just enough mystery to keep me coming back for more of the story.
This book made me laugh out loud on several occasions. There was a lot of dry humor, too.
Really excellent book. This was my first experience with an audio book and has me hooked!
Very boring, this book could be a preteen novel if the sexual references were removed. The plot is just ridiculous and the characters are very shallow. This was pretty much a waste of a good audible credit. The only saving grace was the narrater was very good.
Very good narrator
The entire book
This was a great purchase, one of those books I just couldn't turn off. I highly recommend 14 to anyone who can take a little bit of the weird (ie, monsters). This isn't a work of literary art in the conventional sense, or a great intellectual feat. It's a gripping story that sucks you in and leaves you wanting more.
Wasn't sure what I was expecting but this book, while not being what I normally listen, engaged me from the beginning to the end. It follows several people with enough detail to help you understand their interaction and reactions but not so much that it distracts from the story.
As the story follows the apartment tenants the mystery builds and things get very strange. But somehow it holds together and keeps who wanting to know whats going on.
I can see this actually done as a movie. Low key to start with and building to the very end. By the time I was in the last sections, I found it very hard to stop listening. I just had to know!
I don't know. I would compare this to the TV series Lost.
He used difference voices and that was fantastic.
They all have a secret and they all live in the secret.
This was a fantastic book. I couldn't stop listening too it and it kept me up at night guessing. I loved and would recommend it to anyone. The one down side is I had to listen at half speed because Ray was too fast.
Modern, imaginative, and engaging
the protagonist--an everyman
discovering the secret of the building's power source
I wouldn't go that far
The author wrapped it up well.
Yes it was a good fun engaging story with a great fun mystery. Unfortunately I find the character development to be "thin"...and it was mainly an action story telling of events.
Towards the end the author seemed to run out of ideas and the story went a bit "silly". I thought that towards the end he tried to leverage off Stephen King's"The Gunslinger"...but Peter Clines story telling and character development are no where near Stephen Kings skills and ability.
Probably not. The story was fun, but I prefer an author with a bit more depth and character development rather than a thin action mystery story.
Excellent narration. He made a mediocre book come alive. Well done!
Read more Stephen King!
