Just someone who likes a little bit of everything but mostly Sci-Fi/fantasy & Mystery Thrillers. I love Audiobooks because it makes whatever project I'm working on a little more enjoyable. I only wish I could leave reviews on books that I didn't get from Audible..I need another tb....
Can't Wait for the next one! But then I haven't read or listened to anything by Jim Butcher that I didn't love... The "Codex Alera" series is still one of my all time favorites. I only wish Harry could find a good romantic side kick... he really has gotten the short end of the stick in that area. Seelie & Unseelie Queens who eat you alive or Vampire chicks who he can't get intimate with.... ugh!
I have yet to find a character in this genre that I like as much as Harry Dresden.
Although Mike Carey has the "Felix Castor" series that kind of grows on you...
My name is Chris and I am an addict.
If you are a fan of the series this will be one of the more exciting books so far. There are new powers it seems and many ways for everything to turn out. James Marsters is of course an amazing narrator as well. If you like Sci-Fi you will love this series.
It is almost better then the print version, Thanks to James Marsters reading of it.
The action and "Smart-assary" of the characters. Not to mention all of the Geek/Nerd pop culture references.
Harry Dresden, Toot-Toot and Bob the Skull. I can't just pick one.
I did. But like reading the book, my life doesn't allow me to sit and read or listen for multiple hours on end. I have to do it in short spurts.
I have to get all the other Dresden Files books done by James Marsters. He really brings the world to life in a way that is different from my own imagination. Not necessarily better but definitively in a complimentary fashion that allowed me to enjoy Jim Butchers work in a new and entertaining way.
James Marsters is back and as great as ever, in my opinion he IS the voice of Harry Dresden, no other will do. His performance is great.
In his new role as the Winter Knight Harry Dresden leaves me feeling flat. I plan on listening to it again in a couple of months to see if I feel this way after a second listen and will update this review.
None Ive ever read, any suggestions would be great though. These books were like Crack every one makes you die a little bit more for the next, and this being 14 books in now I'm jonsing for the 15. I never want this series to end . I've now made this my number one re- listened to series, replacing another series with a different wiz named Harry.
The way he really makes you feel the way Dresden is feeling. Despair, cocky, or the funniest guy in the room, all i can say is listen to Harry, in the hospital chapel after Micheal's incident on the island, and tell me anyone could speak better for Harry.
You will be rocked !!!
I can't say enough about these books, so i won't say anymore .....
Yes. The plot is great and plus we have Harry back, meaning James Marsters.
The island and the daughters of Mab
Dialog, plot, descriptions of events and characters. Each book has characters moving forward with their lives. Finding out why characters are the way they are. It is like a long letter from close friends catching up on what has been happening in their lives.
There are far to many to pick one.
It is hard to wait for his next book.
This was such a good story in this series. I wasn't quite sure which way it was going to go. Dead is dead, right? So, there was that little bit of contrivance to keep Dresden in the land of the living, but we love Dresden and want to keep enjoying his crazy life.
It's interesting how much Dresden has matured over the last few books. He's always been an old-fashioned chivalrous guy, but having a daughter has really had an impact on him. He's become more of a "big-picture" guy. It will be so interesting (and entertaining) to see how Maggie influences him and becomes part of these stories. And now Molly's story will become more than tangential to Dresden's. Sad for Molly, but a great plot twist.
So much happened in this book. And it was good to have James Marsters back. He does a great job of bringing Dresden to live and involving the reader in the story.
Winter is Hot
Shoot, nothing really compares to the Dresden novels, that's why I enjoy them so much.
The witty turn of voice, alterations of voice treatments that bring Harry to life.
When Harry gets a glimpse into Mab's past.
These books, ALL of them, well, except for the 2nd one, have been some of my favorite reading of the past decade.
An exciting story that keeps the action going with the character, and the story line. Well-written, impeccable voice performance. I never thought of James Marster's voice as a woman - but he carries those characters with the same amount of finesse as he performs Harry.
I don't have a comparison at this time. But it says something that this is the first audio book I've listened through to completion without losing interst because the performance or the story dragged me down to boredom.
James manages to capture the characterizations and details of the author's writing without letting the story get bogged in the details. It wasn't until I listened to it that I realized how much deail Jim puts in his writing. It sets the scene beautiful in my head when I read it, but it can drag the performance audio down if not done right. James Marsters does it right.
Sure - but who has that much time? At most I can cobble 90 minutes of listening time. And it goes by too quickly.
I am purchasing the other books in the series as I can. They really are that enjoyable.
