Book Description

Luke, plagued by blackouts since a child, awakens in a room with a headless corpse. He escapes down a fire ladder and is led into a building owned by another one of the characters, Jonathan.

Jonathan, a millionaire who owns the building, opens his bedroom curtains that morning to find it's raining dead birds. When he arrives at work, he finds that his building completely deserted.

A father and daughter, on their way to a job interview, find an empty city and a disturbing vision of their dead bodies. They discover that the address given for the interview is the building owned by Jonathan.

Eddie, a homeless man, follows the other characters. Driven by his curiosity, he enters the building and becomes trapped in an elevator.

Each character experiences unique and disturbing challenges that they must overcome as they are lured up to the 11th floor of the Koenig building.

What awaits them in the building and up on the 11th floor? Will they be able to find the answers and help they have been seeking?


Editorial Reviews

Review

"I'm thoroughly impressed with the way Charles Culver wove a series of unfortunate events happening to the five main characters of the book, leading them to a place on the 11th floor of a building owned by one of them.  The way the author presents slices after slices of information alternating from one character to another intrigued the readers and this what makes the book far more interesting than ordinary horror books that usually follow one-path, linear storyline."  -rottendurians.tumblr.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb storytelling! May 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
DISCLAIMER - I received a free copy of this book for review purposes, but it did not influence my review or rating at all.

Books can be written excellently, but if the story isn't interesting, then the book is almost worthless. That is not a problem with this book at all; the storytelling is completely what makes "The 11th Floor" so good. The fact that the writing is good just makes reading the story much more enjoyable.

STORY - The plot is really unique, because it follows five completely different people's exploration of a seemingly deserted city (that each of them knows is usually packed with people). It's obvious that something isn't quite right, but each character is forced to explore the town, looking for a way out. The only person who could help them get out of town seems to be on the eleventh floor of a certain building. Unfortunately the building seems to want to make it very difficult for them to get there.

I can't compliment the story enough; I loved it. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time, and I loved being able to see through the eyes of the different characters. Switching between certain characters' perspectives is done in every chapter, so I suppose some readers might get a confused from all of the changing. I personally thought it was expertly done, and it kept me from getting bored with one character.

It should be noted that the ending is open-ended. It definitely finished this story but leaves an opening for a sequel. I didn't find it to be a cliffhanger at all, simply a way for the author to write another book.

WRITING STYLE - The writing is all grammatically perfect. There don't seem to be any typos. Looking at previous reviews, this may be due to a revision on the original download.

I stumbled across this ebook and was immediately intrigued by the title and cover. I went on a particularly long trip yesterday and read through the whole thing (took just a few hours). It was incredible. I really was impressed by the story and drawn-in from the very beginning. The writing could definitely use some cleaning up - some of the wording is awkward or repetitive, while a lot of the dialogue feels forced - but the life of the story, the very concept itself, is mind-bending enough to disregard its flaws. There are a few visuals that will stick with me for years that, on their own, make this book worth reading. I think the ending was a total slap in the face, and I absolutely loved it. I'm so glad I picked up this ebook, and I would definitely read this author's work again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 11th floor. January 3, 2014
By Lisa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dang, this was good. Loved the concept, and the writing wasn't bad either! Was it all a dream? I've got this horrible feeling that it wasn't. I've already bought book 2. So, I'm definitely hooked. Yep, I'd recommend this story and author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Be prepared to read from beginning to end, all at once. December 31, 2013
By Mirrani
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a fast paced, short story about random people who seem to be thrown into an odd predicament. Everyone in the city has disappeared and they all are being guided to the 11th floor of one building. The story is dreamlike in its warping of reality, but it works so well with the storytelling that it completely captures you as if you were one of those having to make their way to the 11th floor. I simply could not put this book down and I am torn between feeling that I wish there had been more because I loved it so much and knowing that it was perfect exactly the way it was. You'll enjoy reading and you might not even solve the mystery until the very end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but Open Ended September 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book grabbed my attention right off, The plot was good and you did wonder what would happen next. The biggest problem I had with this book is it left questions when I finished it. I like to complete a book with answers or at least have the author give a hint that there is a second book in the making. Follow a journey of 5 people that wake up and find themselves the only people in the city and they are all led to the same building on the 11th floor. The plot is good, the storytelling itself is good but as I stated I don't like when a book finishes with questions, seemed it needed an ending or at least another chapter, maybe the author is already working on the sequel but it would be nice to know that before reading the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A suspenseful tale but could use some editing August 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In general this story has an interesting premise and is suspenseful enough to hold the reader's attention. And I was definitely interested in following it through to the end. The story would benefit from some editing though. I recognize that a novella will have limited content vs. a full-length novel but I would have preferred some additional character development. The characters as written evoke little empathy, despite the horrors they're experiencing. In addition, there's no real justification as to why they were chosen and the choice of the young girl makes no real sense. Also, the dialogue seems a bit forced and unnatural. The conversation between father and daughter should flow easily but as written they seem uncomfortable with each other. Finally, I see some reviewers have suggested the story is set up for a sequel. I can't imagine that will happen as once you understand what's happening there's no more suspense. I think a sequel would be a large mistake.

All this being said, this is a suspenseful tale and to give it only three stars would be a disservice. But I'd strongly suggest some editing to take it to the next level.

More About the Author

I've had weird and terrifying dreams for as long as I can remember. Starting around 15-20 years ago, those turned into the occasional night-terror. I always thought about writing them down and turning them into books, but one day I actually did it.

My first book, The 11th Floor, came out in March 2012. As a new writer, I made a lot of mistakes. Learning from those mistakes, I wrote my second book, The 11th Floor: Awakening (Part two).

Both of those books received numerous 4 and 5 star reviews. Of course there is the scattered 2 and 3 star reviews of people who just say they hated with, offering no real criticism, so take that for whats its worth. I have several top 500 and top 1000 Amazon reviewers giving me 4 and 5 stars, as well as a few people in the vine voice program.

Taking the real criticisms, I wrote my third book, The Foreman. I learned from my mistakes and I think this is my best work yet! I hope you'll check it out and agree.

My wife and mother have been a great support team, reading and giving me valuable feedback along the way. Without them my books would probably be pure rubbish. For that, I thank them.

So what lies ahead? I'll probably continue writing as the ideas come to me. I truly enjoy it and I think it works well for me as a creative outlet. Sure, it would be nice to actually make some money off this and be able to do it for a living, but things are pretty good right now. I'll just roll with the punches.
