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....

    "Loved this book!"

    I will be listening to more Peter Clines. This was a fun book, a good escape! I was so happy when I feared a "same old, same old" ending and was thrown a twist. Thank you for writing a strong ending for this tale.

    The narration was surprisingly good as well. I will also look for more Ray Porter narration.

    "Great book, very entertaining and surprising!"
    If you could sum up 14 in three words, what would they be?

    Really big twist


    What other book might you compare 14 to and why?

    14 shares a similar theme to a lot oh H.P Lovecraft's books where everything is doom and gloom but 14 bring things down to a much more personal level and has characters that you care about and are invested in.


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    Great variety , very well read, I just liked how he did over all.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Nothing is what it appears to be.

    This book wasn't what I was expecting, but that's part of what made it good. I enjoyed the suspense. I had a hard time putting it down.

    "Fabulous!"
    What other book might you compare 14 to and why?

    This one is very visual, so the comparison that sticks out for me comes from television. It???s like the Scoobie gang grew up and moved into a crazy apartment building where Bobby from Supernatural also happens to live. Honestly, I would not be surprised if I found out that Peter Clines had written for Buffy, because holy crap, there are some Joss Whedon moments. If he didn't, well, I would love for J.W. to get ahold of this.


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

    I had not listened to him before, but I'm going to search him out now, because wow - the story was great, but his performance knocked it out of the park.


    Any additional comments?

    I can???t spoil any of it for you, because as fast paced as this thing is, the story and reasoning unfold over the course of it, but just trust me on this ??? if you're a Whedon/Supernatural fan, pick it up. I was listening to it while I worked yesterday, and I almost wanted to stay late just so that I could finish it ??? it was that good.

    "Unpredictable"
    Would you consider the audio edition of 14 to be better than the print version?

    I liked very much the narrator's voice and his great hability to disguise it, in order to give each character its own personality. I dont have much time to read, I rather prefer to hear the audiobooks while I am walking my dogs, and that makes me ( and my dogs) not only happy but in a great shape.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 14?

    The historical reseach about the building, the reasons of all questions and misteries. The background of the reason to build the house


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When they were discovering the paintings in the walls and all the left messages. The discovery of the strange door that not supposed to be a door.


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

    It doesnt matter to me if this is in one or more sittings as everythig is playing together.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking for the next book for the same autor and if possible same narrator

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

    This was the first Clines book I had listened to and I was blown away!! The character development was wonderful. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an open mind about all things fantasy.

    What made the experience of listening to 14 the most enjoyable?

    The Narrator was excellent and his voicing of the characters was distinguishable without being irritatingly over-played. The story is engaging and kept me guessing throughout as it spanned multiple genres and broke through the cliches. It definitely kept my attention!
