Nothing not to like in this series. There is humor, trash-talk in the face of certain death and, surprise! Monsters! I loved HP Lovecraft when I was younger, and these books really deliver. Don't miss them!
I almost didn't buy this recording because of all the negative reviews. What a mistake that would have been! John Glover did an outstanding job of narrating this story. Yes, it's true that he's not James Marsters, but that did NOT diminish my enjoyment. Glover's voice is crisp, characters are easy to identify, and the story moves along with Jim Butcher's usual combination of magic throwdowns, "Aha!" moments and smartass remarks. I especially loved the insight into Dresden's character through his memories of his past. While "Ghost Story" is not the inexorable juggernaut "Changes" was, it is still a great listen. Five stars all around. Don't miss it!
What a wild ride! Great story-- with all my favorite characters coming out for the final throwdown-- mixed with the sad undercurrent of Harry's life changes made for a complete and three dimensional listen. Don't miss this book! Download it today and prepare for the magic of a well-written, well-narrated story.
Tell me what has gotten into Roy Dotrice? He makes Danaerys Stormborn sound like a toothless old woman! I don't know if I can listen to the last half. As the book contains "Dragons" in the title, I presume I will have to endure a great deal of his terrible interpretation of a 14 year old girl. If it weren't for his otherwise interesting narration, I would quit now and just read the book.
This time you lose. Forever Odd was boring and pointless. I am a big DRK fan, but this one was a waste of an audible credit.
In short: I couldn't even finish it. The author's rendition was absolutely mind-numbing. In general, I find an author's reading of his own work to be beautiful and appropriate. Take, for example, Stephen King's reading of "The Dark Tower I, II and III" (since redone by Frank Muller) and John Berendt's fabulous job with "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil", both of which were wonderfully done. However, Frazier's constant monotone and muttering were maddening, utterly destroying my appreciation of the lyrical poetry present in his written word.
Sorry, Charles. Next time leave the reading to someone else.
