James Marsters captures the essence of Harry Dresden. The story line keeps unfolding while some issues from the past get resolved.
This is the 10th book in the Dresden series, and for me, they just keep getting better
Wanted to, but who has 13-14 hours to sit at one time?
Jim Butcher's writing keeps pushing the limits- surprises laced with plausibility...well perhaps re-animating a T-rex is a bit of a stretch, but I simply loved it anyway!
Between Jim Butcher's writing and James Marsters' excellent narration, this is one of those rare audiobooks that can be listened to multiple times and always enjoyed.
It is at least equal. I don't know that I can say that it's better since it's the same book and disobeying anything in print is always an adventure in imagination.
The denarians wow me every time.
I have several other dresden files.
Yes. I laughed many many times.
I would certainly listen to this book again. It is a rompin good magical whoddunit old time. I am not usually much of a mystery reader but I have been a Sci-fi and fantasy reader all my life. This has all the fun of a fantasy without the tragic foibles so many urban fantasies have nowadays. It's action packed, the characters are great, the plot is interesting and the writing is decent. James Marsters does a great job of narrating and all in all it's a very pleasurable experience.
Well, any of the other books in the series is worth listening to as well, but outside of that, it's sort of like Sherlock Holmes crossed with film noir crossed with Jonathan Strange and Mister Norell.
Harry Dresden, as the narrator certainly stands out the most.
Yes, I couldn't stand to turn it off. I think I burned through it in two days.
Lot's of fun.
Great listen. Butcher's entire series gets better with each installment. Small Favor is no exception. Marster's performance is superlative.
Jim butcher does it again, our lanky, sarcastic hero wizard/warden gets into it with another load of horrible bad guys, gets beat down to the dirt and crawls his way back out again, with a bit of help from his friends. Another great book in the series. James Marsters returns and once again brings life to the words on the page. Great author, great narrator, and great book. If you haven't read or listened to the Dresden Files, I would recomend them highly, though starting from book one is allways a good idea, Jim does a great job keeping the learning curve low enough that anyone can pick up any book in the series and enjoy every page/minute. I can't recomend this series enough.
I would totally read this book again and try to listen between words when and find out all the details and conspiray plans. it's an important book in the series, well i guess Jim butcher manages that quite well but the point is that some important and beloved characters interact in a way you wouldnt excpect. Worth rereading... or releastening.
There are times when you see the hero in the middle of a problem and you expect him to heroically get everything solved. Well, sometimes even the hero cant get out clean of this, and while reading it you realice it.
For some reason Michael,l with his serenity, cool mind and "faith" above all is most interesting in this book.
I found myself wating in the car or looking for the headphones to keep listening because some parts i just coulndt wait to see what happened.
Avid fan of sci-fi and James Marsters, I use audio books to inspire me to exercise, taking them on morning walks. It's a perfect combo!
Another wonderful installment in the Dresden Universe!! I love how the author wraps Harry's personal life up into harrowing adventures. The inclusion of his new apprentice and how she's doing is a fantastic addition to the story. Of course, James Marsters excels as a narrator and he IS Harry Dresden ... there is no substitute!!
The cutting sarcastic, in your face attitude of Harry Dresden
The narration and the suspense. I can visualize the characters so well.
To me he Is Harry Dresden.
I'm not able to do that, but I would have
I love this series.
