I am easily amused!
This was the most amazing book. Jim Butcher is a genius! The book has a fantastic cast of all my favorite characters and the most horrific enemy to date. Harry, being the good man that he is, agrees to help Morgan, his archenemy. Morgan has been accused of murdering another high ranking wizard of the White Council. Every wizard and bounty hunter is searching for Morgan causing all kinds of mayhem while Harry and his trusty apprentice, Molly, try to get to the truth. Harry even ends up teaming up with Lara of the White Court to solve this one.
I was enraptured from the first chapter and captivated until the very end. The mystery proves to be convoluted. I had known immediately "who done it" but it didn't really matter since there was so much conspiracy and surprises left to come. Some very interesting developments and heartbreaking revelations present themselves in Harry's personal life that he must overcome. It made me love that crazy wizard even more.
Yes; I am able to listen while driving, doing chores, walking the dog, etc. Can't easily read a book in these situations.
Nice voice with good inflections.
No, just solidly enjoyed hearing it.
Please keep more Dresden books coming!
My only issue with this book is that in my opinion the end was *way* to easy to guess, which took out the suspense a little bit. Nevertheless I enjoyed the book and James Marsters performance as always.
I'd been getting a bit bored (if such a thing is possible) with the Dresden files and side stepped to other books (BTW, if you like fantasy have a look at the Codex Alera series, also by Jim Butcher), but got back to book 11 and the only problem I have is that there aren't many left to look forward to. Turn Coat is a brilliant book in itself, but also picks up where several of the earlier books left things open. I couldn't stop listening, and am now downloading the next one. Can't wait...
James Marsters is a superb, magnificient, and absolutely incredible talent and to hear him speak the characters out of Jim Butcher's series, The Dresden Files, is pure delight. I love Jim's writing style and the only reason there are 4 stars is that I get a bit tired of all the fighting. Hey, maybe it is cuz I am a girl, I dunno. I did serve 9 years in the military, however. But, I am totally adoring the strong characters Jim creates and the tales he spins and at times I burst out laughing at some of the things Harry says and the way James delivers these sayings. How could anyone ever replace James Marsters in this series, be it in TV, film, or audio books? I know, I will give John Glover a good shot at being Harry, but it isn't his fault if he falls short of a character so wonderfully done by James. I certainly recommend this to anyone who likes a mystery, and it is my first venture into fantasy.
I simply could not stop listening to this one. You have to listen to all of them so all the pieces of the puzzle come together but it is so worth it.
I am approaching the last book and I am very disappointed there are not more. The books are wonderful and Marsters brings to life. In this book more than any other I think Marsters out does himself. There are so many character in this book and he never misses a beat with distinct seperate voices for each character.
This book is just as outstanding as the 10 before it. Jim Butcher does a masterful job with the story and character development. James Marsters is perfection narrating this series. This is one of my all time favorite series of books on tape. I couldn't recommmend them more highly.
