Marsters and Butcher are the best combination available on Audible today. The books are excellent modern fantasy, and Marsters is one of the best voice actors out there.
It's always fun to spend a few days tagging along with Harry Dresden and living in a world of fairies, zombies, and this time necromancers. The story moved along well in this episode, with fewer sides stories to tidy up than usual and I appreciated the focus. Harry understands himself better with every episode and while the Shelia story didn't turn out the way I thought (or hoped) it would, I don't regret her presence as she does add something to Harry's life in a a rather interesting way. I hope we will see a return of Buttars in newer books. HIs sniveling counterpoint to Harry and his journey from extreme coward to brazen drum-thummer of zombies was one of the best part of the books.
James Marsters is a fantastic narrator, so good with voices I forget it's a single reader. In my mind, he IS Harry Dresden.
This is by far my favorite of the Dresden files so far, and I plan on listening to all of them. What I love about Jim Butcher is his ability to make you laugh out loud during a serious paranormal battle to the death! I listen to these books while quilting quite often, and I ALWAYS back up and listen more carefully several times so I am right there with the characters. One day I was so enthralled I yelled down to my husband from my sewing loft "I Love Jim Butcher!!! I mean, I LOVE him!!!!!!" He looks up at me pensively... "He's a writer, right?" Ha ha!! I'm not saying a word about this book in particular; why wreck it? Read it.
JM is improving the nuances of his reading in every book. The character subtleties are really coming through in the reading. I have read all the books twice and listening to them is as much a joy. He gets the pauses and sarcasm and "aha's" perfectly. Such a joy to listen to the reading
Well Harry, of course
All previous and will continue to buy as available
when Harry told Michael about killing two people and then admitting to holding a coin
Would be nice to get them on a two for one deal at least once. There are 15 books so only 4 to go
This book brought some items to the series that tied into modern interests. Not that wizards and fairies aren't modern, but without spoiling anything, the obstacles in this story have a large following and or popularity in 2016 as well.
Zombie dinosaur, the Oktoberfest polka off with Butters, and Harry's first job with the Wardens, all narrated by James Marsters ❤
