First time rater who has listened to and read thousands of books but asked to rate this one I couldn't help myself - GREAT READ, end of story
I like this author
Any marginal Sci-Fi vs Future person has to read this, but no matter what don't ever spoil the story for anyone else
Yes. I live solo in an apartment and can imagine what it is like to move and meet the neighbors. This story reminds me of my first moving experience.

The dialogue and interaction of the cross generational cast was very well done and even had me laughing out loud several times.
Very unique. I haven't read anything quite like it. Dimension shift.
The Squale's voice was amazing. The sound of telepathy. All characters were well portrayed and differentiated.
It scared the hell out of me at the end. No way I would quit and go to bed when the end was four hours away.
This will make a fine movie.
I would read another book by P.C. Because I believe in 2nd chances. I loved the narrator
There wasn't enough suspense.
The gatherings on the rooftop.
Not really :/
I enjoy listening to Ray Porter. It took me a while to distance myself from his performance in "The Joe Ledger Novels."
**Spoiler** When the old lady died. It would have been a terrifying way to go.
The pace, although the end gets a little wild.
Yes this would make a great movie, the Squales would interesting to see.
I was getting in a slump finding books that were addictive & unable to stop, but this book is incredible. The narration is excellent and the story just blows your mind. It is intriguing and mind-provoking.
A great cast of characters and a unique storyline. There was a lot of wry humor and it made the characters come alive.
I had a tremendous amount of fun listening to this book. I think I was on the edge of my seat through the whole thing, but it was entertaining suspense that made it impossible to stop listening. It definitely took an unexpected turn at the end, but if there were more stories set in this apartment building, I would happily read them since there are all kinds of ideas to be explored in this world.
I've listened to Ray Porter read the Joe Ledger Series, and he definitely doesn't disappoint with this book. Every character had a distinct voice, and he does accents very well, even for female voices.
I was disappointed to find Chapter 41 plays at the end of part one, and then again at the beginning of part two. Chapter 42 is nowhere to be found. I'm actually surprised more people haven't noticed this or at the very least mentioned it, since it leaves out a rather creepy element from the story! At first, I thought maybe this was intentional (42 is supposedly the answer to the ultimate question and there are MANY questions about this apartment building) but I sought out another copy and Chapter 42 was there.
I stayed up all night because I couldn't bear to turn it off. I'm not a big fan of sci-fi but this story was so good I got caught up in it. The writer started off the sci-fi stuff with small clues interwoven in the character and plot development so that everything was totally believable, at least at first. The characters were colorful, amusing, and very likeable. I found even the. very imaginative sci-fi ending gripping which is saying a lot for someone who doesn't like sci-fi. A thoroughly enjoyable listen. The narrator was really exceptional too.
