Another exciting Dresden Files Novel. Great unpredictable turns. Marsters on the other hand sounded like he was smacking his lips the whole time. I don't think he fits the character well since the character is supposed to be half Marsters age.
The book was an enjoyable and satisfying with unique combination of the noir detective and fantasy in the real world. Great job, Mr. Butcher. The narration was excellent. Great job, Mr. Marsters.
Love this series, never a dull moment. James Maraters is excellent and no other narrator can take this persona.
James Marsters IS the voice of Harry Dresden! He reads with personality! Some readers are reading words on a page but James Marsters is telling a story!
Harry Dresden and the rest of the cast in this series of books have become REAL people to me. I can't wait to find out what happens to them next.
I purchased the first book in this series because I totally loved the very short lived tv series that was based on the Harry Dresden character. I'm now totally hooked on the audiobooks!
A good thriller and a very good reader. The story is dense with twists and characters, so it might demand more attention than first expected.
I'd heard so many good reviews of this series I wanted to try it out. I gave it two books, but I have to say I find myself wishing for the end of the book so I wouldn't have to listen anymore. It's very dark, at times gory. There's maybe twenty while seconds in the whole book where something isn't going horribly wrong, someone is getting murdered, or Murphy (his supposed friend?!) isn't accusing Dresden of murder himself. This series isn't for me. Too stressful.
I read the story several months ago, but after hearing James Marsters read Skin Game, I decided that I should hear how Marsters read more of it as his dramatic reading with voices, diction and accents distinct to each character. Storm Front sounded very rough, but by the end, I could tell that Marsters was quickly understanding how to read aloud effectively. Fool Moon continues that. The changes to tone to signify inner thoughts vs spoken word are well done. It isn't as good as his Skin Game read, but it is night and day different from Storm Front. I didn't rate Storm Front, but I'd only give it a 2 or a 3. This is a strong 4, but that is only because I know how well he did with Skin Game.
The story itself is enjoyable and less obvious than Storm Front. The characters themselves are more rounded than in Storm Front and while there are inconsistencies, they would only be blatantly obvious if you've read and/or listened to all of the books multiple times. The world is vivid, and while you may grow angry at some characters in the book, as someone reminded me, this is in Dresden's point of view.
It's a great series that goes a long way to make the supernatural... Seem supernatural! Always on the edge of your seat and keeping you guessing another amazing book by Jim Butcher.
My only qualms was with the voice actor, he did a great job but it's hard to not nitpick at whenever he smacks his lips; it's a moist, and mildly annoying gesture that you weirdly get used to. Besides that, he's amazing! On to the next book!
