The narration and the characters were very interesting and believable. They all play off of each other nicely, and the narrator did a great job creating unique and consistent voices for them all.
I admit that I am NOT a fan of science fiction, and the book just swayed too heavy on the sci-fi toward the end. I bought this audiobook thinking it would fall more under horror/thriller than sci-fi. However, if you LIKE sci-fi, I would guess this story is more entertaining!
This is a fantastic story, well written and very clever in its implementation. Nice narration, excellent voice affects.
It is difficult to say much about the story without giving it away, so I won't. Just buy it and listen. Oh, and be sure you don't have anything else to do because it is very hard to stop listening once the story gets rolling!
Because the story is so tightly written, with a small group of characters, it could easily be made into a movie. There are a couple of places where good special effects would add to the already good story. While my imagination is doing a great job filling in these gaps, I'd love to see what Hollywood could make of it. There are plenty of references for fans of certain historical figures and early horror writers too...
Too bad there isn't some way to keep this gang together and solve some more arcane mysteries!
I don't care what anyone says - When I say that I've read a book, even if I've listened to it, it's all the same.
14 will definitely keep you interested. I have found a new writer and narrator too search for and if their other works are as good as this, I'm in for a treat.
This was an exciting book with many twist and turns and lots of action.
The entire story was just good.
No I haven't but I was not bored.
This was a thrilling ride. If anyone wants a book with twists turns and fun characters to root for this is the book. I enjoyed it from beginning to end.
I love books because they transport me to the real past or imagined future. I don't have time for T.V.
I enjoyed the first part of the book, up until the story changed (don't want to give too much info). Then it was like it was a sci-fi book. I suppose it's a "good" sci-fi book but my brain had a hard time wrapping around the one-eighty of the direction of the story. I guess I wasn't thinking the story was going to go where it did. It was hard to reconcile the two "halves". I'm not saying anything negative. You will just have to take a chance on the book. It was.....different. Great narration, nice and long listen.
The narration was awesome. Ray Porter has become one of my all time favorites. All his voices had distinct personalities and were totally believable. Even the women.
I would compare 14 to the writings of Dean Koontz. In fact, I have several favorites of Koontz that Peter Clines is now in line with.
Pretty much everything. In fact, this is the first audio book that I couldn't get out of my mind because of his excellent reading and to which I turned around a week later and listened to the entire book again.
This book really gets you going into a adventure that you want so badly to be real. The mystery is there, the suspense is there.
This book reminds me of the LOST TV show. Season 1 it starts off awesome and you want more. You get to the hatch and you are so bewildered and amazed you don't know what to think. But finally you get to the ending and you are left with a bit of why did it go that way.
Nonetheless I liked it a lot and I have added Peter Clines to my author list. I can't wait to read more and I would love to know of more books like this.
I laughed, I gasped, I yelled...I recommend! This book was so intriguing on every level. The story was amazing with twists and turns everywhere. There was mystery, intrigue, great characters, and perfect narration. I was so grateful that I had traveling to do this week so I had lots of time to listen. I plowed through this book and plan to listen again soon.
