    Description

    My name is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. Conjure by it at your own risk. I'm a wizard. I work out of an office in midtown Chicago. As far as I know, I'm the only openly practicing professional wizard in the country. You can find me in the yellow pages, under Wizards. Believe it or not, I'm the only one there.

    With rent past due and a decent meal becoming an issue of some importance, Harry needs work, and soon. A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt. Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters to vampires, while he himself is under suspicion of the crimes.

    Narrateur parfait! je recommande.

    Le narrateur est vraiment impliqué dans l'histoire et étant donner que le livre est à la 1ere personne, cela rend la 'lecture' parfaite!

    Thoroughly Boring

    I've heard a lot of great things about the Dresden Files and for all I know it gets much better in the later books but I found this book sooo boring and kind of obnoxious. 1. Writing feels very poor. Lots of cliché, weak character, and personally I found a lot of the trends very obnoxious. For example, every time Dresden meets a female character, she's described in this weird sort of sexual way as though Dresden is a really insecure lonely teenager. The pace is slow, soooo slow. It just drags along with piles of uninteresting details. 2. The narration drove me mad. There is a ton of sort of mouth noises, the sound of his spit or lips clicking and him breathing in loudly, I could barely stand it. And since the whole book is in first person every line is very over acted, the cadence and rhythm lurches around like a amateur theatre actor's reading the whole thing. I'm listening to it now and I swear if he swallows audibly one more time I'm going to scream.

    The Narrator Hates People

    The. Worst. Mouth. Noises. Ever.
    I seriously wondered if he was eating bananas.
    Who hurt you James!? Who hurt you!? Drink some water and stop licking peanut butter off the microphone.
    I couldn’t finish the book and I really tried.

    Good story! Annoying narrator

    It was a good book, but the narrators heavy breathing got really old really fast. Listen if you can manage.

    Series continues to get better.

    Love the Dresden files. I think it takes a little while to get rolling. The characters are strong from the outset and the plot is well constructed, but my favorite part of the series is world building.

    Slow story, horrible narrator

    Slow, dragged out, uneventful, dull. Some words that would describe this book.

    Having heard great reviews about this series I was looking forward to this book.

    However from the begin the story seemed slow paced and without any proper storyline. The narrator did not help this either with his overly raspy, breathy voice. There were several times that I completely lost interest in the book because of these factors. Maybe it is a better read than an audio book. I would not recommend.

    STOP SLURPING THE MIC!

    What didn???t you like about James Marsters???s performance?

    I swear that this reader has a chicken bone in his mouth through the entire book. And if he's not eating something, he is thinking about it. And now that I've said something, that is all you will be able to hear too. You're welcome! Does he slurp? SNIFF? Salivate, and then eventually swallow it all? You betcha!! But, the story is so cool that I'll have to listen to it all again. Sick!

    Awful

    This author has a gross obsession with cheerleaders and doesn't seem to understand human relationships or interactions at all. This book reads like a weird, uncomfortable personal fantasy of his. Narration is fine, writing is awful.

    WRONG Combo of Story and Narrator

    I wanted to like the main character, Harry Dresden, and the story, especially given that this book was highly rated when I came across it, and the concept of a modern-day wizard detective (as Dresden is) holds good entertainment potential for me.

    However, from his heavy sighs to sharp intakes of breath to sounds of his mouth opening and closing to mumbling, the narrator made listening to this story a torturous experience for me. I struggled to finish and was relieved when the book was over. (I could have stopped midway and returned it, but I really wanted to give the story a chance despite the flaws in the delivery.)

    I chose this book because I was hoping to get wrapped up in a new mystery series and this is the first book. Maybe I'd consider another if there is a different narrator; however, at this point, I'm planning to try my luck elsewhere.

    New Narrator For The Love of God.

    If anyone finds this review; don't pay attention to the reviews that say the narration was 5 stars and how it was so good. Just don't. The story itself was pretty good but, holy crap in a pita was this narrator terrible and I mean TERRIBLE. Every other sentence ended with a sigh like it was a big ordeal and taxing to just say one sentence. Whole narration is in monotone and the constant breathing and lip smacking gave me the creeps. I had to take a couple showers after listening for one hour because I felt dirty after listening for an hour. Not to mention the complete lack of any sort of emotion or the really weird closeness of the mic to the narrator's mouth.

    Absolut hörenswert

    DER SPRECHER: Wer englische Hörbücher mag, wird mit James Marsters (bekannt durch seine Rolle als Spike in der Fernsehserie "Buffy, im Bann der Vampire") als Erzähler keine Probleme haben. Suverän übernimmt er als Ich-Erzähler die Rolle der Hauptfigur, Harry Dresden. Sein amerikanischer Akzent ist unverkennbar, gleitet aber nie in ein unverständliches Genuschel ab. Marsters gibt dem Hörer über weite Strecken des Hörbuchs wirklich das Gefühl, er "erzähle" und lese nicht ab. Das macht es kurzweilig und spannend ihm die vollen acht Stunden zuzuhören. Da kann man nur bedauern, daß es von ihm nur so wenige Hörbücher gibt.DER PLOT:In Storm Front skizziert Jim Butcher die Welt seiner "Dresden Files". Harry Dresden unterscheidet sich von seinem Film Noir Kollegen Philip Marlowe gerade mal dadurch, dass letzterer mit arkanen Dingen nichts am Hut hat. Ansonsten gleichen sie einander wie Brüder, stehen als einsame Streiter für das Recht gegen die nur allzu menschlich korrupte Welt. Mögen Dresdens Gegenspieler auch mit mancher Zauberei hantieren, ihre Motive sind dann doch wieder genauso banal und alltäglich wie die von gewöhnlichen Verbrechern. Und genau hier liegt die Stärke von Butchers Romanen: Der Zuhörer kann sich ohne Probleme in dieser Welt mit Feen und Magiern, Vampiren und Dämonen zurecht finden, weil letztlich doch wieder alles auf Habgier, Neid, Geltungssucht zurückzuführen ist. Motive, die nur allzu vertraut sind.

    Gut, Aber noch nicht Perfekt

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Ich fand das Hörbuch gut, aber nicht extra klasse, mir hat ein bisschen das Salz in der Suppe gefehlt. Die Geschichte ist gut erzählt, war mir manchmal aber etwas zu stereotypisch für eine Detective Story (z.B. Nur gut Aussehende Frauen, eine "Typische" Barszene). Auch die Charaktere hätten ein bisschen Schliff vertragen können. Erinnerte mich sehr an die Bobby Dollar Reihe von Tad Williams, die hat mir allerdings vom Schreibstil etwas besser gefallen. Der Vorleser ist gut bis sehr gut, macht nur manchmal kleinere Kunstpausen die ich eher irritierend fand.

    Trotz der "Mängel" habe ich Lust die Reihe weiter zu verfolgen und werde mir das nächste Hörbuch auch gleich runterladen.

    Wer in das "übernatürlicher Detective" Genre allerdings neu einsteigt und Bobby Dollar noch nicht kennt, dem würde ich Tad Williams eher empfehlen als Jim Butcher. Vielleicht ändert sich das ja nach dem nächsten Roman! ;)

    Serie Noir meets Urban Fantasy

    Bin aus Zufall über diesen ersten Teil gestolpert. Der Sprecher könnte mir auch das Telefonbuch vorlesen und es wäre hörenswert. Die Stimme und Erzählweise haben mir ausgesprochen gut gefallen. Das Buch hat mich immer wieder an alte Krimifilme mit Robert Mitchum oder Bogey denken lassen. Krimi mit Urban Fantasy und Humor. Rundes Paket.

    There are some editing issues

    Somewhere in the first couple of chapters there were editing issues, some lines are cut off and repeated again. I appreciate the hard work making this, just pointing out some mistakes.

    I'd rather make a place, where things are quieter

    I've randomly stumbled over this series and went into it without any references and it was one of the greatest audiobook experiences I've ever had.

    I'm frightened to read the books because James ma(r)stered the narration perfectly.

    Speaking about puns, Jim Butcher killed the story - in a very good way.

    Sherlock Holmes and Harry Hole got some new company in my list!

    Amazing Story and Narration!

    I loved it!

    A great murder mystery with an incredibly likeable main character who has to prove himself despite the worst odds.

    The narration might be one of my favorites as it makes the book come alive and feels like Harry Blackfield Copperstone Dresden is telling you the story himself with authentic swallows and sighs.

    A must listen!
