    What would have made A Grave Talent better?

    Not sure, the whole plot, and story line didn't grab me the same way as the first book did.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Laurie R. King again?

    Yes


    How could the performance have been better?

    I don't know. I really just didn't enjoy the book in any way. I couldn't finish the book, which is a first for me.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Bill says: "Not the best audio book in the series"
    "Please rerecord using James Martsters!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Ghost Story: The Dresden Files, Book 13 to be better than the print version?

    I've been a huge Dresden files fan, and have listened to the series numerous times. This book should really be redone using James Marsters. The current narrator is barely "ok" and don't capture the character of Harry by any means. It's a great book, but the narrator really don't do this book any justice.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better narrator - i.e. James Marsters

    (2396)

    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    Richard Delman says: "Mr. Coben has gotten waaaay too popular."
    "Barely made it to part 2"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Really terrible. The narrator is awful, story line super slow. Don't waste a credit or you time.


    What was most disappointing about Harlan Coben’s story?

    Slowness of pace.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better plot, having the main character be a hero. Faster pace.


    Could you see Six Years being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Hope not.


    Any additional comments?

    no

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Ethan M. says: "Thwarts Every Expectation - In a Good Way"
    "Welcome back Harry!"

    Would you listen to Cold Days again? Why?

    I've re-listened to the whole series so many times, I stopped counting! Cold days was exceptional


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cold Days?

    A naked Harry on the Island


    What does James Marsters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The character, humor. James Marsters is Harry Dresden


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both
