I've read (in print) all of the Dresden File books, and have been buying and listening to them as audiobooks the past few months starting with book 1. This is by far the best Dresden book I've listened to. Not only is it the best story, but James Marsters' performance is outstanding. I highly recommend this audiobook.
Realistic charecters, good suspense
His breathing. It became so distracting it made listening painful
Yes with a new narrator
It could have had some (any) content about Beethoven's music other than how hard it s to learn and perform.
The book has no correlation to the description. If you play piano and want to hear a guy talk about all the technical aspects of playing Beethoven, you MIGHT like this book. I enjoy Beethoven and do not play piano so this was a complete waste of time.
It is deservedly a classic, great story well read. Among my favorites and one I would look forward to listening to again.
Good character differentiations, good emotion.
If I could
Deservedly a Classic
The friendship developing between Huck and Jim
Elijah Wood simply doesn't do the southern dialects well, nor are his characters sufficiently clearly different. Patrick Fraley who narrates Tom Sawyer is a vastly superior narrator. I wish I had gotten his version of Huck Finn. If you haven't bought this yet, I'd recommend Fraley's version.
There may not be a better sci-fi book. The narrator is excellent. I can't imagine the book being read any better.
I didn't like the writing (the content was mediocre, but her writing style wasn't very good) and most of all, I HATED her narrating. Her voice drove me up the wall. I got half way through it before I finally quit.
