The dialogue in these books has gotten progressively more cheesy while the storytelling has gotten more boring. I can't bring myself to read anymore in the Dresden series. It's a shame too because the concept was interesting.

In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

Very disappointing. This actually reads like a TV version of a Stephen King book. The narrator only made the dialogue sound more corny. When Will Patton does his "female" voice it's just like nails on a chalkboard. The worst thing about this is that the main characters are really dull and sometimes annoying. Save yourself some time and skip this one. Dr. Sleep is a good book if you're looking for alternatives.
