Bachelor Chef and Mathematician. I don't bother with books shorter than 20 hours, not worth the effort.
The Codex Alera series are the first books I have read of Jim Butcher and I was prompted to get it because it is being read by Kate Reading. I am not at all disappointed. As always Kate Reading and Michael Kramer seem to always find the best fantasies to read and this has been a wonderful story and experience.
Jim Butcher has created not only a great world but he has created great characters. I rate this series with the best, and far above the Fire and Ice series, mainly because Mr Butcher is able to finish his tale without fanfare and celebrity.
If you like Robert Jordan, if you like Brandon Sanderson, if you find Ben Bova over, then you will like and possibly love Jim Butchers Codex Alera series, I know I have found it a fun and satisfying experience.
Very well done. I am enjoying this series.more with each book. I am glad I continued with the second then third book.
But the but I still have, and I may be very wrong to ask this rhetorical question; what butt decided to throw in such a rash and discordant noise as those trumpets? My two girls, both Siamese, get a look on their faces that is pure distain when, without a reason I can puzzle out, the noise is thrown in. .
This has by far been my favorite of the series so far! I love the growth of the main characters and strong relationships in the story. I love the narrator too! She makes the voices for each character unique even though there are plenty of characters.
Love it. It was an intriguing story. I love the way the plot was revealed slowly but with enough foreshadowing that it was fun to guess action to follow!
I'm gonna make this short and sweet. if you haven't read this series yet then do so. it's a fantastic series that deserves all the praise possible. Jim Butcher is a fantasy writing savant.
I loved the continuation of the story and the background information provided in this episode. It is woven with humor, intelligence and human nature. Kate R is a masterful narrator.
