After last year's "Ghost Story" left me really bummed out (the story and the only audiobook of the series without James Marsters), "Cold Days" more than makes up for it! Top notch story and the true voice of Harry Dresden!
The old Harry is back with even more power. He's once again trying desperately to balance "doing the right thing" with not going over to the Dark Side.
Harry Dresden and Sith.
Don't hesitate! Get it!
I'm not usually all that picky about narrators, having started out with LibraVox, but wow was this bad! Like a computer voice, only worse! The story is a fun idea, but most of the dialogue was so poorly written that when combined with the narration, I'd literally have to stop until I was in a more forgiving mood to go on! Might be better as an eBook, but I'm being generous.
I haven't a clue.
I wish there were more Bentley Little Books on Audible!
The performance was ok, ruined by a boring, convoluted story.
Disappointment, as the first book was great!
Beautifully written, amazing story and characters that I actually cried a bit for...
You never know just quite what the truth will turn out to be.
Great! Reminds me a bit of David Duchovny.
Hopper. He's got a lot more going on than he lets on.
It feels more like an historic account than a fiction novel. I found it very interesting and eerie. Fun, too!
Unlike other reviewers, I have no problem with the narrator! I believe she must be Italian, which lends a feeling of authenticity to the story, since it takes place in Rome! She certainly has European-accented English, and a couple of extremely minor characters had voices that made me smile a bit, but don't let the bad reviews deter you if you think you can handle something other than Americanized-English. Just listen to the preview.
I pretty much have!
Glen Cooper has become a favorite. Try The Tenth Chamber! Loved it!
I love the little world created by Mike Carey in just five novels. His keen, sarcastic sense of humor kept me coming back for each installment. I'm just sorry it's over!
I have to say that I prefer the reader of the first book. I think it may be solely because I'm American and Lynch's rapid-fire delivery of Brit-isms with his accent lost me a few times! Overall, he has a "fun" and quirky style that does seem to match the personality of the character. No real complaints other than my personal preference.
