"Butcher's latest maintains the momentum of previous Dresden outings and builds the suspense right up to a rousing conclusion." ( Booklist)

Zombie t-rex. Enough said!

So, this audiobook was pretty epic. End review. No, but seriously there's Necromancers, a zombie t-rex, Harry gets a wizardly promotion, there's a weird love triangle going on, although I don't think anyone is actually getting any, Bob gets kidnapped, and then there's the whole Lasciel thing. I loved this installment to bits; there was action to the max, tons of future possibilities open up for this series, and I bow down to James Marsters' grasp of Dresden's character. Butters made for an awesome sidekick, and Mouse was something else too. Highly recommended! 4.5 Stars

I wish it was about 20 hours longer

Would you listen to Dead Beat again? Why?

Yeap. This book introduced Butters, a Chicago medical examiner, and a perfect foil to Dresden. Jim Butcher's books are always peppered with humor, but between Butters, the almost full-grown Mouse, and a third plot point (that I will not spoil) this book was one guffaw after another. Past Dresden books have been dark, with Harry just getting pummeled time and time again. Harry picks up some new bruises and sutures in this book too, but the whole tone of the story is lighter.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Beat?

Avoiding Spoliers: Right towards the end, when Harry finds the perfect weapon against the baddies. I rewound that scene twice before moving on with the rest of the book

Polka will never die!

A late addition to 'The Dresden Files' Audible lineup, this is one of my favorites of the series. In Dead Bead, Mr. Butcher fills out the character of Waldo Butters, who plays a major role in this story, gives us additional glimpes into Bob's dark history, and reintroduces us to some old friends...and enemies. The story is fast paced and exciting with Mr Marster's doing the usual fantastic job of caturing Dresden's emotional intensity. Dresden's resolution of the current crisis is, in a word, audacious! A credit worthy listen.

Harry finally gets a little respect

If you're like me and have been reading this series in order, then you won't be disappointed by this installment. Harry finds himself in yet another peril of life and death, and finally gets recognized for his efforts. Thomas and the werewolves are back, with a few cameos here and there, but Harry finds a new alliance with Butters, a rather eccentric medical examiner. The story has the usual non-stop action, and Harry is forever fleeing and facing death. James Marsters does his usual excellent job of narration, bringing Harry and friends to life. I just can't say enough about this book, except don't miss out on it.

POLKA WILL NEVER DIE!



Absolutely brilliant book, the best in the series so far! Harry Dresdan is funnier than ever and becomes even more of a bad ass. Zombies, necromancers, animated dinosaurs, old and new enemies grace the pages of this book as Harry struggles to keep his friend Karrin Murphy's reputation safe. The book is unpredictable and ties together loose ends from previous books. Harry is learning to adapt to having and living with his brother, Thomas. He is adjusting to life with a crippled hand and is struggling to over come fears he is not even aware that he has. The war is still raging against the red court vampires and a terrible new threat has come to Chicago threatening to kill thousands. Action packed and full of Harry's wonderful friends with the new addition of Butters, the polka loving waif of a coroner that grows a back bone while hanging out with our hero.

I always make a point of listening to the Harry Dresdan books on audio because James Marsters does such a wonderful job with the narration and this book was no exception. Fantastic, I am already tempted to listen to it again.

A little jumpy.

This books sets a weird pace. At first you think it’s about one story line then it jumps to another. Not a bad book in the series. The writer just seems like he had a hard time arranging his thoughts.

Minor League Dresden

The narration of James Marsters is wonderful and really helps make this audiobook lots of fun.

That being said, I find the overall book to be lacking in depth. Previous offerings, such as the Summer Knight were much stronger. I felt like this would have been better served as a short story to cut out many of the details that did not add value to the plot nor move the character of Dresden forward. I will continue to read these books because I find them to be enjoyable Leisure reading but do not find them to be much more than simple urban fantasy.

Somewhat disappointing, but (grr!) still worth it.

It might be just me, but it seems like the author didn't craft this story as carefully as he did in the preceding volumes. There are several weak plot points, in fact, and the entire story is considerably more predictable than before. The most disappointing part, however, is that Butcher made Dresden mess things up a few times too much for the book to be anything else but an annoying experience one can't wait to be over with. A couple of surprising near-awesome twists at the end of the story almost make up for the blunders made throughout this installment of the series.

Problem with recording

In Chapter 30, around five minutes in, the recording is messed up. The sound cuts out mid-sentence and picks back up in a different spot.

Like Zombies and Wizards? Try this!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I've been hooked on this series since a friend recommended it. This is one of my favorites from the series thus far. Each of these stories can be read as stand alone, but are better appreciated when you listen to the series. (I started on book 3 and was fine.) This story has is one where Harry is put against necromancers.... It also has a lot of Bob the Skull (my favorite character.) Definitely worth a listen. . ..

What other book might you compare Dead Beat to and why?

This book is Harry potter meets, 40's detective story, meets evil dead.

Which character – as performed by James Marsters – was your favorite?

Bob the Skull.... James is very convincing as a performer for both men and women... But with Bob he uses his own accent and gets to be completely inappropriate. It always is a laugh.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Towards the end a method of transportation is awesome!

Any additional comments?

IF you're new to the series, I've been told book 3 is where to start... SO I started there... and may go back to 1 and 2 later on... CHECK IT OUT!

Amazing story

I loved this new instalment of the Dresden files. The story was fun and smart and exciting. Sue was the cherry on top. I like how we get more in depth views of Harry's character with every new book and even though I wish he would get a break and get to rest a bit I love the exciting stories Butcher thinks up for his hero. James Marsters is doing an amazing job narrating the story.

Ein Tyrannosaurus-Zombie als Reittier

Besser kann es einfach nicht mehr werden.
Harry Dresden ist Harry Potter für Erwachsene.
PolkaMusik, Necromantie, der Erlkönig, gefallene Engel. Jim Butcher hat dies geschrieben auf der Höhe seines Könnens.
Genial.

Tolle Unterhaltung a la Jim Butcher

Die Geschichte ist unterhaltsam und wer Harry Dresden kennt, weiß, was er bekommt. Der Sprecher bringt die Geschichte zum Leben und spricht so deutlich, dass ich ihn auch als nicht Muttersprachler super verstehen konnte.
