I thought the depressing nature of the previous book Ghost Story was my reason for not loving it like I have many other books in this series, but I think it's something more then that. These book are not what they used to be. Butcher seems to spend more time coming up with cheesy action film one liners and tired pop culture references in lieu of a good story.
These books are becoming formulaic and I can finish Harry's banter before I even read the next line. Harry's relationships with women are just becoming creepy and I no longer desire him to find love, I just want him to stop talking about women in general.
I'll continue to enjoy reading the early books in this series, but I don't think I'll be buying another book in this series. I'm honestly surprised at all the 5 star reviews for this book as it just feels lazy to me. I waited so long to read this book and I could barely finish it :(
James as always does a wonderful job. I look forward to hearing more from him.
I consider myself a connoisseur of audio books and this is one of the best I have heard. The book and its narrator are both a pleasure to read. This is my first experience with Terry Pratchett and certainly will not be my last. Great characters all performed excellently by the narrator. Check it out, you will not be sorry.
