I had been introduced to The Dresden Files television show and enjoyed it very much. The problem with the show was that it was too short-lived.
Thankfully, the audio books are available, and I'm enjoying them very much.
I finished this so quickly, I couldn't stop reading (listening, really.) The narrator may lack range as far as character acting goes, but he makes up for it with his skill in actual, general voice acting. The story itself is really fun, with convincing red herrings all the way to the end, and everything comes together, just as a gritty noir type novel should. My only criticism is that there are too many beautiful women involved with Dresden, but I suppose that comes with the territory. It only slightly bothered me, not enough to give it less than five stars. Really fun read (listen) and I'm excited for the second.
A friend of mine has raved many a time about James Marsters rendition of the Harry Dresden novels. I finally decided to give over and give them a listen.
The story is as wonderful as I remembered it & Marsters is utterly fantastic ! As she put it "He just absolutely nails Harry!!"
I couldn't agree more!
The first entry in Jim Butcher's Dresden Files is an excellent piece of Urban Fantasy Noir. Harry Dresden is a Wizard P.I. complete with arcane soaked brooding, deadly dames, and grisly death.
It is am excellent short read, and the series takes off in subsequent books. I listen to the entire available series sat least once or twice a year.
avid researcher and avid listener!
Very well done. I enjoyed it. Quick listen but absolutely worth a credit. I enjoyed it very much. There ya go
The person that read the book (The Narrator) is not very talented by any means. The story was ok. I won't be listening to anything else by this author or narrator.
Quite a bit of mumbo jumbo without much explanation. I prefer more solid explanations than, "circles trap things, and that's the way it is." I did enjoy the characters, though. The plot is rather simplistic which makes for easy listening, but not much thought. The reader was quite good throughout.
