"Lots of noise"
Yes. Great story but the narrator seem to be digesting food a lot.
He was good at showing the differences.
"Definitely reading the next one"
Very enjoyable to listen to - nothing great but will definitely pick up the 2nd book in the series as I am reliably informed they get better. Much better - and I can see why.
The storyline doesn't quite have the time to knit together the melding of the world as we know it and Dresden's world. This will come with time and I definitely want to hear more and where it takes Dresden.
"early day's of Dresden."
style not fully developed, story a bit spurious. but good for all that :)
Dresden and Susan's first date...
The narration on this title is dreadful. You can hear papers shuffling and furniture creaking and moving in the background which is rather distracting and annoying. The story seems okay, but to be honest it's hard to tell.
"Great story but narration was annoying"
As much as I love Mr Masters, I suffer from mysaphonia and his constant mouth noises and swallowing was distracting and made me want to switch off!!
"Gonna read me some more."
I understand this is the start in a successful series by Jim Butcher and I am hooked already. James Marsters performance was just so good. Between the storyline and Marsters' nuances and intonation which are just so compelling, I listened to the whole book in one night.
I like me a good detective story and this combined with magic and mystery means that I shall be following up on the remainder in the series very soon.
"Excellent story - masterful narration!"
The story is excellent and captured me right at the start. I will definitely be listening to the sequels.
The best part of this experience was James Marsters. hus voice is perfect for the story, for Dresden - simply perfect!
"Absolutely worth it."
Long time fan of Dresden files. I love Butcher's work to death and James Marsters is just the perfect person to take the role of Dresden.
"Amusing - enjoyable"
Excellent entertainment. Raymond Chandler nicely balanced with the supernatural in Chicago. Very plausible in terms of its assumptions. The narration works very well. I have bought the next one of these and think I will enjoy another one, though more than that might be too much, we will see.
"Great start to a series! 4.5 stars!"
Harry Dresden! I thought his character was absolutely fantastic and James Marsters portrayed him excellently. All of his funny little quirks and phrases made me laugh at loud (and look completely weird to people on the bus.. but who cares!).
Again, I'm going to have to say Harry Dresden. James Marsters was made for the role!
I strongly urge you to listen to this audiobook if you even have the smallest inclination to do so. The narration is superb - James Marsters definitely brings the characters to life. Most importantly, the story is absolutely fantastic and Storm Front is a really strong start to the series - I cannot wait to pick up the next one.
