ok, So...I loved this book and I loved the series. I think tho that the real question is this: will Audible EVER give us the last book in an unabridged form or will this be another like OUTLANDER series where there's just some cheap abridged version of the next in the series? I'm getting a bit frustrated. I love epics but I love the endings too. So far i've got 4 unfinished epics in my library. 3 of them because Audible doesn't have the last books.Codex, Ice and Fire (boo George R.R. Martin you promised us September!), OUTLANDER (i won't consider it done til you give us unabridged; so far the abridged has really bad and unsatisfied reviews.) So, YES (!), I love the Codex Alera Series. Great narration, great characters (some I love to hate), great series. BUT PLEASE, can we have the last book in unabridged and SOON!
Nice story continues - careless/sloppy editing. Many chapters missing last few words - or next chapter missing a few words. In cliff-hanger transitions, this is an important gap - and simple carelessness by the editor(s). Read the book instead
The Book was great but there are parts of it missing, and the trumpets are distracting.
I enjoyed the audiobook overall, but the random horns that blare in your ear for no particular reason were annoying.
The book is good but you'll notice you've already read this story. Butcher pretty much repeats the story from the last couple books. You'll know who is in danger and who will survive and how they will survive. No surprises.
the book is phenomenal. the narrator is also phenomenal. the editing is absolutely atrocious. it's honestly pathetic, things cut in and out, words are clipped or repeated, and some text seems to just get skipped all together. listen to this book, but you've been warned.
I've listened to five of six in the series now, and I'm enjoying the story. However, I can help but wonder if I would be enjoying it more if the narrator was better. I love Jim Butcher's writing, but I think Kate Reading falls flat a little. For context, some of my favorite narrators are James Marsters, Jim Dale, Wil Wheaton, and Michael Page. I think this book is a good book, but it could have been a great audiobook with a more engaging narrator.
The only problems I had with this audio book were a handful of editing issues that made the narration jump sometime.
Kate Reading is fabulous, as always, and Butcher's Codex Alera continues to be a fantastic and captivating world and storya
