Jim Butcher is a great writer, I've enjoyed all of his books thus far.
And James Marsters who reads the books is equally as fantastic. It took me a while to get used to the sighing and deep breaths, etc, but after I did and realized it is just part of the main character Harry's persona I loved it.
It is hard for me to stick to only buying one book per month and not zooming through the whole series as fast as I can!
But I guess that was the point. I mean..wow. Both of the readers were great, and I usually don't care for books that have more than one. The author is something else, clearly a great mind to think of all the plotting going on.
The first of the three books took me about ten hours to really get into the storyline. The author is so detail oriented which I've enjoyed in his other books, but this series is NOT even coming close to par.
The second book I made myself listen to and thought it was okay. If I start a series I like to finish it so I know how it ends.
This is the third book and two hours from the end I could care less if I finish. In fact I've gone over a month and haven't listened to it. Finally to finish it up, I've set my ipod audiobook speed on fast so I can at least hear how it ends.
Long. Drawn out. Boring. Very disappointing.
What else can I say? The subject line pretty much sums it up for me. I was cracking up within minutes of beginning the book. The narrator was fantastic - not too overly done or underdone with the different characters. He's got great tonation and ability to differientiate between characters easily.
The storyline was well written. I don't yet know if there is a follow up or not to this story, but I sure hope that there is. Even if there isn't I will be listening to more books by this author and narrator.
I LOVE this series. It has been great to listen to, until this new reader came along. I feel like she's totally changed Ivy into this oversexed vampire who only cares about getting into the pants of every man. In the previous books she is much more reserved and scared.
Ciri (or however you spell the female elf's name) doesn't seem the same at all. Jenks? Are you freaking kidding me?
And Rachel..OMG. What a disappointment!
Over all - book is a 5, reading is a 0.5. I am so disappointed!
