    Story

    This is book #7 in the series and it continues to keep my interest. I think if it were presented simply as a "Monster of the Week" type book, these would get tiring quickly. However, Jim Butcher adds depth and interest to Dresden's relationships with other people, non-people, and organizations. Sure, fighting vampires and trolls is fun to read about, but the relationships Harry develops and learning more about Harry and his band of acquaintances is what keeps me interested in the series.

    Harry Dresden, Chicago's only practicing professional wizard, should be happy that business is pretty good for a change. But he also knows that whenever things are going good, the only way left for them to go is bad. Way bad. Recent examples: A duel with the lethal champion of the Red Court, who must kill Harry to end the war between vampires and wizards...Hit men using Harry for target practice...The missing Shroud of Turin - and the possible involvement of Chicago's most feared mob boss.

    Story

    This is a very good story with an excellent reader. The first few audible books in the Dresden Series were hampered by too much extraneous noise by the reader, such as swallowing and mouth noises. Thankfully, I have not noticed this in the last few books.

    Rather than relating just another Dresden story, in Death Masks, the relationships mature and the overall story line and world become more rich and interesting. I already have #6 downloaded and ready to go.

    Story
    (4383)

    The Winter Queen of Faerie has manipulated Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden into accepting a case to solve a murder and stop a war between the courts of Summer and Winter that could have literally earth shattering consequences. His own soul is up for grabs. Dresden must dig deep to discover that at time a willingness to accept a little help from your friends, be they a cub pack of werewolves, old loves in sheep's clothing, or a battalion of pizza loving dewdrop fairies, is a very good thing.

    Michael says: "Harry & James are one."

    Story

    To me, Summer Knight is easily the best of the first four books in the Dresden Files series. The first three were good, but this is the book that has me excited to continue with the series.

  • The Dirty Streets of Heaven: Bobby Dollar, Book 1

    Bobby Dollar is an angel - a real one. He knows a lot about sin, and not just in his professional capacity as an advocate for souls caught between Heaven and Hell. Bobby’s wrestling with a few deadly sins of his own - pride, anger, even lust. But his problems aren’t all his fault. Bobby can’t entirely trust his heavenly superiors, and he’s not too sure about any of his fellow earthbound angels either, especially the new kid that Heaven has dropped into their midst, a trainee angel who asks too many questions.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Dirty Streets of Heaven in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, fast-paced, and fun.


    Which character – as performed by George Newbern – was your favorite?

    The reader, George Newbern, was excellent.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first Tad Williams novel that I've read since the Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn series. That series and this book are worth your time. Can't wait for the next installment in the series.

    Story
    (3139)

    Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this to all readers who enjoy Brandon Sanderson's work. Unlike the majority of his work, Legion is short contemporary fantasy. If you have never read any of his other works, this may be a good "bite-sized" portion to help you determine if you like his style. However, be warned that his other major novels are much longer and not set in contemporary times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the manner in which the "multiple personages" were handled. Rather than a story about a person with Dissociative Identity Disorder (multiple personalities), Sanderson uses visual and auditory hallucinations to make the personalities "real" and distinct characters.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    The reader, Oliver Wyman, is able to imbue the various personalities with distinct voices which aids the listener in keeping them separate.


    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint is that it was too short! I believe that there is enough material to make a longer novel or maybe a series. Psychologically, Legion is an interesting and deep character and the interactions between and among Legion and his personas make it fun and interesting.
