the heavy, repeated breathes didnt seem to fit woth the character throughout the book. there were definitely portions where it made sense, but not as the constant that it was. the voice actor do a fantastic job otherwise.
Terrific story, narriation, and pacing. The concept of Wizard For Hire in a mundane world is fraught with possibilities.
Harry, naturally. .. the Real Wizard caught between disbelief of mundanes and The Council.
Marsters caught Harry's constant anxiety and ironic acceptance of his lot perfectly
Will Wizard for Food...
Getting the next book and looking for enough hours to listen from beginning to end.
the narrator was really good. the book was well written, funny In parts. I'm just more an action, spy, terrorist book type. not totally into the wizard thing.
Author, vocal performance, story, main character, all come together very nicely. It is the total package and a great starting point for a regular continuing story line.
Say something about yourself!
I had a really hard time with the reader. He sounded like he was trying to create a very calm character, but it just didn't fit. It was hard to listen too. I think it would have been better if not for this.
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!
