I got this book because I LOVE the Mike Carey Felix Castor series, and someone compared Mike Carey with Jim Butcher.
Let me say definitively, there is no comparison between the two. Carey's books draw you in with solid writing, intriguing and believable characters, and fascinating and well-constructed plotlines. Add to this the pitch-perfect narration of Michael Kramer, and you have some perfect audiobooks.
I found Butcher's writing flat and unimaginative. His prose often leaves me cringing, and the characters and scenes he constructs are amateurish, even painful.
And I agree with other commentators here on the narration. Too quick, very inexpressive, and please! Stop with the deep breaths!
Very tedious to get through.
