Story is good. Narrator isn't. But I wasn't ready to quit it just because of that. Going to try book two!
I did not like the narration. The portrayal of the male voices was pretty bad. I had forgotten how much Adrian has deviated from books 1 - 10, even though I did read the 11th. This was all just too disjointed. Wish I hadn't bothered.
I tried 3 times to listen to this book. The narrator even seemed bored with it. I couldn't get more than an hour into it.
I liked this just as much, and maybe a little more than the first book. I liked finding out how Leslie was doing during her recovery. The humor is great and refreshing. The story was good.
Not a lot of substance. It felt hurried I think the character deserved a full story.
This book continued the story from Cast in Peril. It had some surprising turns, and interesting developments. I waited a year for the continuation from Peril, and it was well worth each day's wait. Great story. Cannot wait for the next one!
I was looking forward to this book, but was disappointed with the very predictable story line. It seems like the author copy/pasted the sex scenes from the first book to the second. They aren't great the first time, but downright boring the second. I fast-forwarded through them. The dialogue is a bit rediculous and stilted. Overall, I just wish I hadn't wasted a credit on it. If you've read the first book - you've read the second one as well. Just switch out names. I won't get the third.
For anyone who was frustrated with Ghost Story, you will be vindicated! This is classic, exciting, satisfying Dresden! Butcher at his best.
Originally I skipped this book based on reviews, but I disagree with the poor ratings. I tried to go to book 3 but felt the gap too much so went back and got this one. It was a good story and definitely set up book 3.
I have listened to all the previous books in this series in order, and they are all performed by a different narrator. With the change in narrators for this latest book, the quality went down significantly. The most aggravating thing is that she doesn't pronounce some words correctly. She says "lee" lines instead of "lay" lines (spelled lei) and for the character Takata, says it as Ta-Ka-Ta instead of Ta-kat-a.
If I hadn't heard the first 4 or 5 books before this one, I'm sure it wouldn't have mattered. But I was so distracted by the constant mispronunciations, that it really detracted from the whole experience. They need to go back to the orginal narrator. She was MUCH better in every way.
