14 | [Peter Clines]

14

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.

Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - H.P. Lovecraft pioneered the genre of “weird fiction”, so it makes sense that Peter Clines leans heavily on Lovecraft in this twisting, terrifying, shocking, and ultimately exhilarating tale of an apartment building with a lot of secrets. While the main character is a relatable everyman, the rest of the tenants are well-fleshed-out and rich, with their own backstories and motivations that pay off in an extended, otherworldly ending. Everyone is hiding something and the stakes are much higher than they first appear. Ray Porter absolutely nails the accents, tones, and emotions of the diverse cast of characters. —Chris

Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Science Fiction, 2013

Padlocked doors. Strange light fixtures. Mutant cockroaches.

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. Because every room in this old Los Angeles brownstone has a mystery or two. Mysteries that stretch back over a hundred years. Some of them are in plain sight. Some are behind locked doors. And all together these mysteries could mean the end of Nate and his friends. Or the end of everything....

    If you could sum up 14 in three words, what would they be?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 14?


    What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?


    Any additional comments?

    I would only recomend a book that i give a 5

    I love a good book, but never have time to sit and read. Audible is wonderful for people like me. Even though my kids think I am a nerd for always having my headphones on, someday they will wish their college books were on audible!

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book was different for me. I am still not sure how I feel about it. It did keep me listening, I am just not much of a scifi person.

    "Not great but kept my interest."
    What did you like best about 14? What did you like least?

    A twist a end I didn't see coming.

    One of the main characters dies. :(


    If you’ve listened to books by Peter Clines before, how does this one compare?

    First Peter Cline book


    What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ray Porter is a great reader!!! Voice is smooth and easy to listen to. Even the females voices are easy to hear. That was one of the reasons I choose this book.


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

    Yes just to see that old building. The mystery of it!


    Any additional comments?

    Prob won't tell all my friends about this book. It was missing a WOW factor. I did come to like all the characters tho. Was very glad clines informed us of whats in store for them.

    Suggest waiting for this one to go on sale. Perhaps in a BOGO. That would be better then a credit spent.

    "A Well Written Snack"

    A mystery in the paranormal genera. The author was able to get me to care about the main characters and to love hating the villains. Saddly, not everyone makes it to the end.

    I most enjoyed the witty repartee among the characters which added spice to the story.

    "Know what you're getting . . . ."
    Where does 14 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Somewhere in the middle.


    Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

    The narrator had a real challenge giving a distinctive voice to each of the characters. He did a good job with this.


    Any additional comments?

    Cartoon characters. Pedestrian writing. Good story.

    "A great start to a book"
    What made the experience of listening to 14 the most enjoyable?

    I loved the concept of the book. It had a great start and it was overall a good read.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was good. However some of the things that went on in the last part of the book were too strange for me. It was a bit "Out there"


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    Great performance. I would listen to him again.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    A few.
