I love Jim Butcher, and I love James Marsters. Both do masterful job with this book. But after listening to the book more than once, it's hard to ignore that there are so, so many plot holes. Butcher's books usually have one or two, but there are just so many more in this book. Regardless of all that, the book moves the overarching series storyline a great deal forward, with many revelations. I highly recommend this book, and the Dresden Files series as a whole.
once again a solid detailed story with an amazing narrator. this series gets better with each book. the details from the previous works really plays into each new book and adds depth and solidity.
I love this book in the series. Jim revisits many people from Harry's past, answers questions I did not know I had, and ties up a lot of threads in the series. Very cool. Great book. I completely enjoyed it.
This is probably my favorite Dresden Files book to date. After book 12, "Changes," I was so excited to see what would happen next, and was annoyed by book 13 because only a little of that was really addressed. In this one, we finally get to see more of the consequences from his choices in "Changes," and it's EPIC. I have always been partial to fairies and they are all over this story. You get to learn a little more about Mab, see more of what's beneath her cold fairy queen exterior, and the Erlking returns! Marsters also returns as the narrator, which was very much needed.
I love the dresden files have reread/ listened to the series multiple times this books story line made me relisten to the entire series again and see details i never saw before in the other books it is awesome
lesser of evils
Jim Buther's stories keep getting better with each new round. How in the heck is that even possible? While Mr. Glover gave a passing performance on Ghost Story, it was the strength of the story itself that still made an enjoyable experience. And while his less than great performance did not kill the story, his performance was just average enough to bring down the enjoyment level for me, personally. But James Marsters in this story took what was a great story to a height otherwise unattainable in an entertainment experience. The James Marsters/Jim Butcher team-up is sublime perfection.
All of them. His mastery of characterizations and voice differentiation is unmatched in audio books. I particularly liked his portrayal of Lacuna and his delivery of the line when Harry is getting dressed and puts on the band Tee and Lacuna inquires about his weapons maker! I mean, how perfection is made in even the smallest of exchanges. Butcher is a genius of characterization and dialog. And Marsters is unsurpassed at delivery.
Spoiler alert: When Harry and Mav have that tender moment at the end, in addition to when we see who Kringle really is! Wonderful moment for me.
Yes, It is a great book with a complicated plot.
The reaction of Harry's friends to his returning from the dead as a living person instead of a ghost this time.
James Marsters does his usual excellent job dramatizing the book.
Butcher does not let you down on the humor or the one liners.
