I have read and loved every one of Jim Butcher's books. I needed to take a long road trip so decided to try Turn Coat as an audio book. James Marsters is a wonderful narrator, brings the characters to life without using a bunch of hokey voices. I loved listening to it and was able to track the story well while I drove. I will definitely get another Butcher book and will be looking for anything else Marsters narrates.
Excellent listen! James Marsters once again nails Harry's personality dead on. The whodunit is ... wonderful. Jim Butcher delivers with this one! I highly recommend beginning at the beginning, reading or listening to the series in order, however this one could stand alone. Get snax and a beverage of choice, kick your feet up, and delve head-first into this one!
This was by far my favorite book of the series to date. This book had almost a little bit of everything. White Court, Senior White Council, Morgan on the run, a new twist (the Skinwalker), and a partridge in a pear tree. Watching Butcher bring all these elements together and have Harry juggle everything was impressive. No spoilers here, but the White Council traitor plays a huge role in this book. Did Harry uncover him or not? It's worth the listen to find out.
I really enjoyed this book, it was one of the better ones in the series. I will miss Morgan as an antagonist. I can't say enough great things about James Marsters!
This is the 11th book of the series. If you are wondering if author is running out of ideas, fear not. This book had a great interweaving of many characters and includes some elements that lead into the next books. I cant wait for the next one.
I really enjoy genre fiction, mostly fantasy and mysteries but enjoy discovering new authors.
I enjoy these audio books so much!. James Marsters does a great job of narriating. Just a little weary but not too much. In this story, Morgoan the warden asks for Harry's help but is still a jerk to him and especially to Molly but Harry sticks with it because he's trying to be a good man in a messed up world. There was a great show down on a mysterous island in lake Micheagan. Butters, the warewolves, a few members of the senior council of wizards, Toot-toot and The Wraith family of the white court, but NOT Thomas, all help Harry out on this one. ("Where's Thomas?" you ask. Not telling!) Very enjoyable.
I have read all the the Harry Dresden novels and have been reluctant to listent to any. I'm always afraid that the narrator will destroy my idea of Harry and his world. I need not have worried. James Marsters does a remarkable job of capturing the essense of these characters. The story is tightly written and full of surprises. Dresden fans won't be disappointed.
As a long time fan of the Dresden series, this is the first time I've listened to an audiobook before I've read the novel. James Marsters is perfect as Harry's voice, and does a superb job of conveying the accents/voices of other characters, never resorting to that treble voice so many male readers use for female characters. A great story, a superb narrator, highly recommended. I'm going back and buying the whole series on audiobook to supplement my hardback collection!
