Sadly, before purchasing this book, I only read the synopsis and the first few reviews. Had I done my homework and read more of the reviews, I would have seen the one that pointed out that this book has a strong religious component to it.
Had I seen that, I would have saved my money.
The author's reading is done well (hence the 3 stars for performance), however the content and it's emphasis on God, the Bible and matters of Faith were not for me.
No, however I will be more careful to read ALL of the reviews before purchasing next time.
Personable, clear, emotive
The subtle yet ever present proselytizing.
No. I have a 2 hour daily commute and I have listened to all the Dresden books with James Marsters narration from book #1 right up to this one. Let's just say I'm invested in the series at this point, in more ways than one. Today's ride in got me as far as chapter 9 and I can't take it anymore...I ordered the book from Amazon. I'm sure John Glover is a fine narrator...for other books...but I'm sorry, once you are this far into a series, any other voice telling Harry's story (for me) completely distracts from the story itself. The nuances aren't there. The character voices are all wrong.Guess I'll be listening to Side Jobs on my commute while I finish Ghost Story the old fashioned way.
Butcher's story is great, as always, and I found myself wanting to like this audiobook - without giving anything away, I was just happy there was another one after Changes! But without Marsters, I can't tolerate it let alone like it. Again, NOT referring to the story here, just the narration.
Grating, nasal, just plain WRONG for this book. (Disclaimer: I've never listened to Glover in any other audiobooks, so this is by no means a condemnation of his voice in general...only as a "substitute" Harry Dresden)
Nope, in fact I gave up due to the narration and bought the eBook.
I am a huge fan of this series and will continue to be...but unless I see that James Marsters is narrating, I'll be reading any new Dresden Files that come out.
