Not really. The recording couldn't hold my attention. I kept finding myself drifting off. It's basically the summation of The Colbert Report but way too long with no audience feed-back to keep Stephen lively. It's just repetitive conservative parody/bashing the whole time and it gets old after a bit. I kind of wish I used my credit to by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter instead. I'll stick to watching the TV show instead.
I was looking forward to a smart female detective story and what I got was a harliquin novel with some investigating in the background. the main character spends most of her time mooning over some sex-god like entity that seems to have nothing better to do than making the mc have multiple earth shattering orgasms. I'll stick with the Dresden Files and Felix Castor, thanks.
I actually did listen to Cold Days twice. Jim Butcher always has those tiny details that you might miss on the first go that turn out to be significant later. Listening it the second time was even better than the first!
I literally couldn't stop the recording until the end. I had to finish it. This is a great addition to the series. The ending sets up nicely for the next book, which I'll be anxiously waiting for. I just hope it doesn’t take too long. James Marsters, as always, does a fantastic job with the character voices. I nearly spit my soda out when I heard him do a female pixie voice, but he pulled it off.
If all her book are this long and pretentious, then no!
It's Twilight minus sparkling vampires. The two main characters are so very unreal. Juliana is a weak, niave, throws fits when men can't read her mind, and focuses on making Gabriel the love of her life, rather than her expensive education. Gabriel is a popmus, designer label stamped ass who thinks worldy women are non-persons to be used for sex only and hates himself for having a lebito. He puts Juliana on a pedestal for her "purity and innocence" and is lothed to corrupt her with his beastly ways. Juliana is a fragile simp who is scarred for life because her ex-boyfriend likes Nine Inch Nails and said he wanted to f**k her like an animal. I want to vommit.
I would have skipped pages and pages of silly internal dialog on how perfect Gabriel's voice and eyes are and how angelic Juliana is. Unfortunately, skipping is a little hard for an audio book.
Don't waste your time. I'm glad I only spent 5 dollars.
The stories and narration by Niel Gaiman are, as always, beyond fantastic, but you would be better off buying "Fragile Things" which contains all the good short stories from M is for Magic and more.
I like Mr. Gaiman's short stories, especially October in the Chair. I find them all delightful.
