The Dresden files are a phenomenal blend of gumshoe detective meets Harry potter. A macabre cast of characters in a delightfully dark and witty Chicago all go to make one hell of a good story.
As a long time fan of the TV show and rpg, I finally settled in to read the books, but given the lack of time I settled for audio books at work so that my fingers could work as i listened. A great story, weaving many frwyed threads into a beautiful ending that has me drooling for another taste.
No, and no.

He was flat, unanimated and sounded as if he was falling asleep at times.
I will not read another by this author.

I started listening to this series like several other listeners, to entertain me on a very long commute. At first, I hated the narrator. I had headphones on, instead of listening through my car speakers. That being said, I could hear every breath the narrator spoke and at first it was quite irritating. Now, he IS Harry Dresden and the nuances of his voice are the character. I look forward to the books and am listening back and forth to several series (one book of this, another book of that). This is my favorite series and I look forward to get in my car every morning at 5 am!!
Not a bad book but nothing that really hooked me. It all seemed a little too polished and glib. Lots of slobbery monsters and magical rules. Just didn't hold my interest.
Everyone has to have that "Thing They Love!" This is how I find and keep up with mine!
The narrative was great the story line was pretty good, I just wish there was a bit... More - a detective and wizard but he seems to be weak in his knowledge of powers..
Big fan of Harry Dresden. James Marsters is the perfect person to read the book. Looking forward to the next book. Can't wait.
