Absolutely great. The reader can't seem to pronounce any Hawaiian name, and she also has trouble with simple nautical terms, but despite that annoyance the listen is excellent. Susan Casey wrote a terrific book.
A shame that this book book didn't have a decent reader. Narrator voice is far to young and his character voices made it impossible to listen to.
Not with this reader
In every imaginable way
Probably a decent story. A shame that this reader was cast.
Im a big Dresden/Marsters fan. I enjoyed this very British take on the urban fantasy genre. Very funny and smart. Takes a little while to hit its stride, but a good story, great reader. Lead character written so well, it's hard to believe the author is a man. Worth a listen.
In a first person narrative changing readers is a very risky thing to do. It does NOT work here. James Marsters makes Jim Butcher better. His narrations of Dresden have made the series something truly special—a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
Glover's reading misses all of the noir fun and intelligence of Butcher's story and characters. I have to listen with the volume turned way down because Glover has the characters using various forms of yelling, screaming, and loud over-acting to express most everything. He reads it like a children's story, very cartoonish.
I hope the reason for the change in narrator was actually something more than a "scheduling" problem. Otherwise the change is an astoundingly stupid move and a real betrayal of the story, Butcher, and fans. In short, what the H*ll were they thinking?? PLEASE bring back Marsters.
A VERY poor decision to drop James Marsters. Been waiting a long time for this book. Very, Very dissapointing. Won't buy the audiobook. Will read it with James voice in my mind.
