great author, great story, horrible narrator. whoever okayed his whispering of every other paragraph needs to be fired. DO NOT listen to this while whearing ear phones. you'll have to turn it up so loud that when he finally does talk in at an almost normal volume your ear drums will hurt. I have no hearing loss as of my annual hearing test, but I imagine that after listening to this my next test in october will show some. hate this narrator!!!!
I've quickly become a Harry Dresden fan, and this, the third novel is an excellent example of author Jim Butcher's skill at telling an exciting story filled with memorable characters.
Three books in and the stories are getting a little drab. Book one was amazing, can't say enough good things about it. After finishing book 3 it seems to be the same trend:
Harry has no money, Harry gets called by the cops to help out on a case, Harry tries to help and people get pissed at him, Harry gets into a pickle with some Bad guys, The bad guys almost kill Harry, he pulls a magic trick out of his ass and nearly escapes with his life.
I'm invested at this point so I'm going to read the rest of the series but I really hope that the repetitive story algorithm changes up.
Butcher and Marsters have got something great here. The story keeps getting better and Marsters embodies Dresden. I cannot imagine Harry Dresden without James Marsters.
