Chosen by Audible.com as the best sci-fi novel of 2012!
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…
I just finished listening to the audio version of 14 by Peter Clines and I have to say I was blown away. Thank heavens I ran across this one while browsing for something new and exciting to listen to.
From the very beginning it held me spellbound. I even put off doing some things around the house just so I could listen to what happened next to the brave band of tenants of a very strange building in Los Angles. It was creepy and mysterious, and Ray Porter, the narrator did a superb job with all the voices of the different characters. He really made them come alive. The plot was right up there with Twilight Zone and I found myself talking back to the characters or yelling at them to pedal faster. I’m not going to give anything away so you’ll have to read or listen to the book to find out where they were pedaling to or from. Fantastic book and I rated it 5 stars *****. I can truthfully say that this book will NEVER leave my memory.
