As a bookseller I listen to books so I can pass information on to my customers. After listening to this one I will recommend the book to the customer, but have told them not to waste their money on buying the audio version. It was all I could do to eekk through this one. The story was good, but I hope the author never again tries to narrate another one of his books.
As with all of Jim Butcher's books, This book has a great story line. Talking with Mr. Butcher at a convention, he said that if you want good character development find out what is the most precious thing to that character and take it away then create road block to set in their way during their recovery of that item. (paraphrased) In this the first of the Dresden books you can see this brilliantly executed.
The performance did not have a lot of inflection, but it almos seemed like it was being done by the actor who played Harry Dresden in the TV series " The Dresden Files ".
This book is a great continuation of the Paksenarrion world. Looking forward to book three. I find it interesting though that it is referred to as Legend of Paksenarrion as she hardly ever is present in this story. I understand that sometimes it is necessary to change narrators, but this series went from someone who was fun and exciting to someone who could put me to sleep. Still it was a good choice.
