I had heard about Hugh Howey's WOOL and decided to buy it. I'll be honest, it took a while for me to get used to Amanda's voice but I think she does a good job. She's more suited for female character narration but I guess I should have expected that she wouldn't be able to convey male voices well. Not many female narrators can. Once I was accustom to her inflections, I listened happily along.
The story is fantastic. Howey is a great story teller. Howey unfolds the events in WOOL masterfully. Suspense, shock, horror are all conveyed well as you listen. You will feel like you are right there, inside the silo, living among its inhabitants.
Pick this up. Do it now! You won't regret it.
14 is an excellent mystery-thriller with a splash of horror and humor. Peter Clines develops the characters well and you become attached to the players as they explore and uncover their apartment building's secrets. I mention Scooby-Doo in the title of my review because you will feel like your tagging along with the "Mystery Gang" in trying to solve the riddles but trust me, this story is way more cunning and twisted and not as simple as unmasking Mr. Jenkins, the janitor, as the cause of the disturbances. I found 14 intelligent and thought provoking and a thrilling story with crazy twists and a very satisfying ending.
Ray Porter does an excellent job narrating. My only gripe is with his narration of female voices but that might be asking much. I still give the narration 5 stars.
If you like mystery and intrigue, mixed with a splash of horror and some comedy, you will love 14. I highly recommend it!
BTW, 450 S Kenmore Ave is the building that inspired the story. Look it up to get a visual in your head of the building as you listen to the book.
I would listen to it again for the technical information.
Lots of parts were great. The humorous parts were great. Its a believable story that makes you feel like your there, surviving the ordeal with Mark.
Excellent narration. I loved Ray's accents and story telling. Very good.
Not really. Its all good.
I highly recommend this audio book. Its awesome for space/science nerds like me.
Its a wonderful performance. Very well done. Sucks you into the story.
The sound effects make it great. Makes you feel like your there.
Bilbo's character was excellent. He even sounded like the person from the recently released movie which made it even better.
