"A wholly original story that weaves together mystery and the apocalypse like a finely tuned band." --Evan Roy, Bricks of the Dead 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... "Picture Lost in an apartment building with a cast of ordinary people, some comedy, plenty of charm, and the stakes being the end of the world, and you'd come close to capturing what makes 14 tick." --Craig DeLouie, author of The Infection and The Killing Floor… (mais)

What an unexpectedly awesome book! Totally caught off-guard by how much I enjoyed what I thought was just going to be a no-brain little time filler. This one will be on my mind for awhile ( )

Hard to classify this one. Nate has a boring, dead-end job, but finds a super low rent apartment in L.A. After moving in, he notices lots of strange things and organizes his neighbors to investigate, eventually discovering the landmark building itself is much more than it seems. I found the pace of the book uneven, but I greatly admire Peter Clines' imagination, integrating technology, cloak and dagger, and dimensional intersections in an unconventional good versus evil story.

Not my favorite Peter Clines book. I loved the first half of the book. The tension of the mystery of the apartment building was really good. However, the second half left me shaking my head. It just got a little too weird for my tastes. In addition, it needed more character development.

I rounded up to four on my rating since I thought it was better than a three. I would like to give this one 3.5. Despite my mediocre rating, I am still a fan of Clines and will read more by him. He does have a fabulous imagination. ( )

My off-the-cuff brief review is that 50% is really too long to build up and wait for something to happen; however, I did really like the characters, although there were some character histories that didn't mesh with my expected reality and so didn't meet my requirements for suspension of disbelief.

*minor spoilers alert

I like a good 'end of the world' story, and this one sounded like it could be one. I started getting right into it, with the main character, Nate, moving into this apartment building, and finding out some weird things about it. The story built up, and drew me in, waiting to find out what they were going to find next, or what would happen. As I traveled the small twists and turns the author lead me on, the ending became clear somewhat early on, but still I wanted to find out how they got there.

On technical aspects: the character were not that developed throughout the story. Descriptions were fairly vague, letting the reader make the best of their imagination. Maybe that was planned, but it felt to me like the author just didn't want to waste time trying to fill in a few extra details. With the lack of character development, I felt like some of the supporting characters were nothing more than cardboard cut-outs, expendable at leisure. Though, I won't say how many live/die in this story, I was a bit surprised that one of the "more developed" characters was wiped out.

Overall was a decent story, with a few twists that were cool (ie. H.P. Lovecraft's twist in there, and some 'steampunkish' technology). ( )
