CommanderStrikeher’s #CBR4 Review #52 14 by Peter Clines

 *Audiobook Review*

It’s interesting that the quote on the front of the book mentions Lost, because I felt that this book suffered from the same problems:  it started out great, then couldn’t figure out what to do with the premise.  The less you know about this book going in, the better.

Nate has a low-paying data entry job and moves into a new apartment.  It seems too good to be true.  The rent is super cheap, and it even includes utilities.  There are just a lot of…oddities.  Like bright-green cockroaches.  With extra legs.  Locked doors that seem to lead to nowhere.  General weirdness.

Overall, I liked this book, but I felt that the ending was kind of….nutso.  Also, even though the characters all were very vivid and had a lot of backstory, there were too damn many of them.  I couldn’t care less about Nate’s crappy temp job, and it did virtually nothing to contribute to the story.  However, the mystery of the building was intriguing and I found myself searching for opportunities to listen to this book.  I would recommend it to anyone who likes their sci-fi with a dash of horror.

4/5 Stars

Oh, by the way…
