Really good sci-fi story.14by Peter Clines (Goodreads Author) 3.92 Rating Details   18,773 Ratings   2,488 ReviewsChosen 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...… (mais)

(2015) KIRKUS REVIEWA schoolteacher with unusual gifts is recruited by the Department of Defense's Advanced Research Projects division to investigate a troubled project.There's a great big bait and switch in the middle of this sci-fi thriller by Clines (Ex-Purgatory, 2014, etc.), but it's unlikely to deter readers intrigued by its full-on Michael Crichton?esque premise. Our hero is Leland ?Mike? Erikson, whom we meet quietly teaching the last day of a high school English class in Maine. We soon learn that Mike is one of those gifted people who's chosen to walk away from his talents, but his gifts are particularly thorny. Not only is he a certified genius, but he also got a bonus: an eidetic memory. ?I've got...complete, instantaneous recall of anything I've ever seen or heard,? he explains. Mike is intrigued by an offer from his childhood friend Reggie Magnus, who's now the head honcho for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. A team of six DARPA scientists working on a small campus near San Diego appears to have created a working teleportation device dubbed ?The Albuquerque Door,? and Reggie asks Mike to see if it's bogus or not. There's definitely Weird Stuff going on. One team member returns from the portal convinced that his wife has been replaced with a stranger. Another comes through the portal with fatal wounds and massive radiation burns. Mike discovers that the team's math is largely based on the work of an obscure, possibly insane Russian scientist named Aleksander Koturovic. There are some leaps of faith to be madewhy would the government limit access to a universe-changing technology to six scientists and a schoolteacher? But fans of Clines' colorful fantasy novels will happily follow him into the Lovecraft-ian nightmare that follows.Fans of the author's popular novel 14 (2012) will want to pay particular attention, as these shared universes share other horrors as well.Pub Date: June 2nd, 2015ISBN: 978-0-553-41829-3Page count: 384ppPublisher: CrownReview Posted Online: March 21st, 2015… (mais)

(2012) Very good tale of the residents of an apartment building in Los Angeles. They discover that there is something strange with the building. As they explore each subsequent mystery, the strangeness expands exponentially to the point that it if found to be a buffer between reality and another universe. The building is keeping creatures from slipping thru to ?our? side that will destroy the world. This story is very much like Lost or Fringe TV shows, but the book's universe is limited to the building. Excellent read.… (mais)

This one is all over the place.

Negatives: I'm sick of zombies and end of the world stories. I'm not a huge fan of super heroes. I don't like reading about battles and gory monster stuff.

Positives: origin stories of super heroes are cool. (Frustrating that they aren't more fleshed out here.) Love among super Heroes in a zombie apocalypse could be interesting and fraught with danger/angst.

More negatives: characters that are super annoying (mostly Stealth, the super hot Victoria's Secret model / genius / crabby leader of the Heroes)

More positives: cool/interesting characters like St. George and Gorgon and Cerberus.

I will make an allowance here because he's setting the stage for future books. I will try book two but it will have a short leash.
