A great introduction to a series that never disappoints. The overall scope of this book is a little narrow, but it does a lot to set up elements for later stories.
This story held me the entire time. The recording isn't fantastic but to be honest I didn't care. The performance was good and so was the story. The recording although not spectacular oddly lent itself to realism at times. I'll definitely get the next book
Enjoying life, taking time to be myself, trust me it's a hoot!
i read Storm Front 6 or 7 years ago then bing read all th Dresden files. The more i learn about the American novel the more mystified by Butchers ability to tell a good tale. I enjoyed the book twice as much as i did the first time.
This is the start of a great series. As the books progress, the plot gets more and more complex and the characters deeper and more interesting. Also, James Marsters really develops as a narrator, giving each character a voice, and bringing their personalities to life, especially the main character, Harry Dresden. This is only the first book, and Marsters' reading isn't as good as in later books, but both Marsters' reading and Butcher's writing only get better from here!
I can't recall the last time I sat through such poorly written drivel. If you are going to be writing a misogynistic male power trip the only saving grace will be if you write it really really well. This is not.
Just a guy trying to fill a small void in my life by reading some great literature.
The story line wasn't to bad. At lot of canned phrases through out the book. Magic and creature scenes drew and keep my attention. Will read the next book to see the improvement every one keeps talking about. Also, the book was a quick listen and finished in a week (listened to while driving to/from work).
