The world and the "magic system" are somewhat unique, and the plot as a whole is very good. But it seems that the author was in a hurry to wrap this up. And they should have hired someone else to read it. It sounded like that college professor we all had that read straight from his notes. That being said, this is 30 hours of audio for one credit. Not a bad buy.
Wow. I just finished listening to the audiobook on the way into work. I should have finished it last night, but got a little bit upset at a couple of the chapters and needed to "put it down", as it were.
Knowing this is possible... knowing that people in our government know that it is possible and do not move to protect us...
This is an absolute "must read". It is haunting, disturbing, empowering description of what will happen if an EMP is ever discharged over the US.
I have to admit, that I have been distracted today, trying to figure out what I would do and how I would keep myself alive.
After 12 books, and especially after the ending in Changes, you are going to switch narrators? Maybe Mr. Butcher wants the series to end? It's almost like he wants to mess with his fan base. Well, I've read the first 5 chapters, and listened to this "preview". I think I'll just start a new series. Without Marsters I am not willing to spend the money, and it is definately not credit worthy anymore.
My 70 year old stepmother turned me on to The Dresden Files... I think I may have to buy her something really special. I have listened, with the last releases, to all of them. Marsters does as good a job with this series as Jim Dale did with the Harry Potter one, if not better. This is the most engaging, most disturbing, most humorous, and most enjoyable book of the entire series. I am, and will always be, a fan of Jim Butcher. This book, however, places him on the same pedestal as I place Robert Jordan, Raymond Feist, Weis & Hickman, Kurtz & Turner-Harris, and Dave Duncan. It is, without a doubt, a book that I will listen to over and over. Thank you, Mr. Butcher! Thank you Mr. Marsters.
