I liked the tv show I saw years ago. So I decided to give this a try. I was not disappointed. Great feel of old detective with a fantasy twist. I will be trying the others in the series.
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..
