    At the center of Nemesis is a vigorous, dutiful 23-year-old playground director, Bucky Cantor, a javelin thrower and weightlifter, who is devoted to his charges and disappointed with himself because his weak eyes have excluded him from serving in the war alongside his contemporaries. Focusing on Cantors dilemmas as polio begins to ravage his playground and on the everyday realities he faces, Roth leads us through every inch of emotion such a pestilence can breed.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Nemesis to be better than the print version?

    Loved the book and loved the audio. Would recommend them both.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nemesis?

    I really felt the protagonist pain when he realized he might have been the carrier.


    What about Dennis Boutsikaris’s performance did you like?

    He was the voice

    Hamilton as usual delivers a great plot, fast action and an exciting conclusion.

    Alexis is the voice of Anita Blake.

    Story

    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"
    "Glover can fill the shoes"
    Overall

    Just finished Ghost Story. Butcher did his usual great story telling, however I was worried about the new narrator. But Glover pulled it off. He kept the same inflection and tone that Marster has made Dresden voice, I liked it.
