I loved the book when I read them 10 years ago, I was so excited to see them here that I purchased the first 2 without reading the reviews....I have tried twice, but I just can not (believe) listen to the narrators portrayal of the characters. I am sorry to have to say this, but I want my credits back.....
The story line is very original and that is the only reason I made it to chapter 15. I forced my self to over look the 13 year old "valley girl" mentality, but every time she got mad, "cussing like a sailor" was added. When she used the C word, I had to turn it off. I love Molly Harper and do not think I am a prude, but the combination of these things just was not entertaining to me. It is a shame because it is an interesting story.
The story line is wonderful, as is everything from Jim Butcher
I love, love, love the Dresden Files and was so excited Jim Butcher has started a different series. As I said the story line is great, but it is a little hard core (rape, sodomy) for me. I am not really a girly-girl, but parts of this story made me wince...
Thank you Jim Butcher and James Marsters (and Audible for bringing back James to narrate)! This books give us fans exactly what we want....more. It is amazing that the story goes on just as exciting and witty as it has always been. I'm ready for the next one!
I loved the books when I read them 10 years ago, I was so excited to see them here I purchased them with out reading the reviews. I so regret that move, I agree with the others that the narrator is not able to capture the personality of the characters. Please review before you buy.
I thought the story line was very clever. There is nothing normal or predictable about this story. I'm ready for the next one....
There is so much more to this book than I expected. I am not done with it yet, but I already know I will be listening to it a second time.
