The start of chapters tended to cut off the word "chapter" so it sounded like "ter 8" wasn't to big a deal, but the long pause before it started was a little annoying... More then once started thinking its paused for some reason.
Great series. The reading performance is improving with every book. So happy there are many many more to listen to.
Entertaining, with excellent storytelling, easy listening, exciting narration and a very compelling read complimented with James Marster's audio style, accents and energy!
This i installment was sexist to an almost infuriating degree. I almost gave up on the series because of it. We all know Harry has a skewed view of women, but Blood Rites took it much further than usual; from tolerable to near hurtful. However, i trudged on hoping things would get better. I was rewarded with fantastic reveals into Harry's past, and heaps of intrigue. Character development was fantastic, and I felt validated in my choice to continue. I wouldn't say the ending made the misogeny worth it, but it saved the book in my mind.
The first 5 books were good and a fresh take on a genre that doesn't have any new ideas to often. Mr. Butcher turns on the Pro button in this book.
James Marsters is awesome. He ads so much to the reading! Really gives a depth personality to the characters with his pace, timing, and delivery!
