14

So, I’m listening to this book, 14, on my iphone while I’m multitasking.  It got rave reviews and the premise sounded interesting.  An ensemble cast of characters living in a creepy old apartment building discover that there’s more to the building than they previously thought.  Like, they’re not connected to the power grid and yet, all utilities are included, with plenty of electricity to spare for the socket in the kitchen that just gives off black light no matter what bulb is screwed into it.

Anyway, I’m more than halfway through this sucker and so far, nothing is happening.  Maybe I’m expecting too much but I thought someone would lose an eye or die by now. And there’s no sex in this book.  C’mon now, you put half a dozen young nubile 20 somethings in the same building and nothing happens?  There’s hardly even a hint of mutual attraction.  What’s wrong with this generation anyway?  Nope, they’re all prowling around in the sub-sub-basement looking for clues.  Clues to what, I don’t know.  They should all be grateful that the rent is so low and the views of the Hollywood sign and Griffith Park Observatory are so spectacular.

Has anyone read this yet?  How far do I need to skip ahead before some real action takes place?
