    A tale of archetypal heroes and sweeping adventures, of dragons and princes and evil wizards, here is epic fantasy as only Stephen King could envision it.

    If you’ve listened to books by Stephen King before, how does this one compare?

    You know how The Hobbit is the children's book for Lord of the Rings? This is the children's book for the Dark Tower series. You don't have to read Dark Tower series to enjoy this book. And I'd recommend reading this AFTER the series. I'd recommend reading it to read to your kids.


    Anyways, it's not a bad book. Some good humor and good characters. Most are flat, but not many 'tales' like this have round ones. And is it bad my favorite character is the villain? He's pretty scary.

    My problem is some of the scenes are long and unnecessary. If King wrote this for his kids, it was definitely a bedtime story cause I wanted to fall asleep a few times. But then a good part comes along and I can hear myself saying 'Come on, one more chapter!'


    Which character – as performed by Bronson Pinchot – was your favorite?

    Flagg. I can hear the tweaking they did for his voice. But he's pretty good at sounding scary.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    "Again, good story and characters but..."
    Overall

    Please give James Marsters a glass of water! For crying out loud! I'm tired of hearing this guy swallow, LOUDLY, all the time! His voices are acceptable, he's not too bland. But were they under such a tight schedule and not give him a break to let his mouth cool off?

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Tom says: "Excellent Story, Distracting Sound Engineering"
    "Really good book, bad narrator"
    Overall

    I own the paperback. Jim Butcher writes in my favorite style. First person! And he writes in a very sarcastic tone.

    The narrator, who also played the main character on the short tv series, but in this audiobook he SUCKS! Maybe he gets better in the next audiobooks, but he does many annoying traits. He swallows VERY loudly, he wheezes, and talks too low for an overly dramatic effect.

    Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

    GS says: "Conflicting Emotions"
    "Weak ending"
    Overall

    Previous two books were good, but this book seemed confused and hurried. Without any spoilers, if you have read/listened to the previous 2, be prepared to be annoyed about what happens to half the main characters

    It is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces, some familiar, others only just appearing, are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

    Aaron says: "No Roy Dotrice"
    "Again, bring back Roy Dotrice!"
    Overall

    It's a good book (if I was only rating the book it'd be 5 stars) I've read it before. I listened to the previous books and loved them. This narrator, John Lee, isn't bad but his voices are a tad over the top. And since he's reading as all the characters like Roy Dotrice did, it's like an entire television series being recast! Or the main character of a movie being recast! It's just not the same!
