I have been a Harry Dresden fan for years and have recently gone back and listened to the preceding books so I could be up to date for this one. While the narrator isn???t the same, unlike others, I feel he did a credible job. No, he isn???t Marsters, but he did do a good job with the story.
I am disappointed by the story itself. I feel this book was one long breast-beating, self-examination soliloquy after another ??? the angst factor is very high. The first half absolutely plodded along but finally did pick up. The supporting characters haven't the depth I???ve come to expect, they feel almost ???throw-away???. Scenes feel disjointed and haven't the flow as in past books. I had the bad guy figured out almost immediately. This review may sound harsh and I don???t mean it???s a bad story. The book is OK - but just OK. I just feel letdown as this is not the superior level of writing I???ve always enjoyed with the Dresden series.
This is the first book in the Dresden Files (which to date has 14 books in the series), what more can you say?
Character development is good for a first book. Dialogue is fun and fast. Reader does a good job.
