    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Where does 14 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best. When the author and narrator combine to make me feel as if I"m there with the characters, waiting and searching for answers .. that's awesome. Really good character development. Narrator was spot on.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is one of my favorites.


    Any additional comments?

    Ask Peter Clines to do another book of this type ... fantasy, terror, gripping!

  • Deeply Odd: Odd Thomas, Book 6

    Story
    (1337)

    How do you make sure a crime that hasn’t happened yet, never does? That’s the critical question facing Odd Thomas, the young man with a unique ability to commune with restless spirits and help them find justice and peace. But this time, it’s the living who desperately need Odd on their side. Three helpless innocents will be brutally executed unless Odd can intervene in time. Who the potential victims are and where they can be found remain a mystery. The only thing Odd knows for sure is who the killer will be: the homicidal stranger who tried to shoot him dead in a small-town parking lot.

    What did you love best about Deeply Odd?

    The narrator is so perfect for this character!!! He is Odd. Would not like any of the series without David Aaron Baker!! Story is awesome - funny, witty, interesting, and good messages all through out.

  • Joyland

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 33 mins)

    Story
    (2800)

    Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Story was slow. You feel the book will move along lines of the murder, yet it doesn't even get there until almost the end. If you like a lot of character development instead of story .. you'll like this one. Also, do not like at all, how King gives away future 'happenings' over and over - just slips them in the narrative. It ruins the story for me.


    Did Michael Kelly do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He speaks way to slow, almost like he's half asleep. Not enough enthusiasm where it's needed, just my opinion.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    Jacqueline says: "Finish to Start Excellent is Novel This"
    "Mesmerizing ... story & narrator AWESOME!"
