    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.

    Magpie says: "Super solid listen!!"
    "Fresh, intriguing, and full of mystery"

    What did you love best about 14?

    I think there are three things that work very well together
    1. The book is full of great character development and chemistry between the residents of the building. You want them to succeed and believe they are friends.
    2. The mystery unfolds at a satisfying pace and doesn't disappoint. I had a very hard time putting it down. I found myself looking for moments I could steal way to listen.
    3. The writing is witty and clever.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    That is very hard. They all work so well together. If I had to make a choice I would say Tim. Mainly for his patience, wisdom, and things that unfold in the book.


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

    I have not. I was very impressed with this narrator and even looked up his other books to see if there was anything I might like. I really liked his performance!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely!!


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to a lot of books and a lot of those are mysteries. There comes a time when you see the same patterns being used over and over. I was getting a little tired of what was out there. This was an incredibly fresh book. I will caution people that it does have a sci-fi feel similar to the television show, "Lost". If you prefer linear police detective books over unexpected thrillers, then you may not like the content. You can't argue, however, with the superb writing and the excellent narration.
