Oh yeah forgot that part.
@Ty al'Djinn already finished it
So i finished Brief cases. It definitely helped ease the need for peace talks a bit. But i think a reread is in order.
I'll have to track it down!
There was a reddit AMA where he said he's trying to get a draft out by September. Also he's getting married soon. So that could be why it's taking so long.
He's getting married!? Congratulations to him!
That's amazing!!! I will wait however long it takes i'm excited no matter what. Also i wouldn't mind more Butters and Marcone stories!
Wait...did he get divorced from his other wife then? /confused
I enjoyed the Brief Cases audiobook. All the stories were brilliant, and expertly narrated. James Marsters did a fantastic job with the zoo story
Sadly it has made me more impatient for Peace Talks, not less . I have re-downloaded Storm Front to start another re-listen in the meantime.
Not sure why you'd willingly put yourself through the first two books. But you do you!
What's wrong with the first two books?
I believe James Marsters is different in the first two audio wise. It's like hes still trying to grow into his voice.
I can't say I've noticed it enough that it'd make me want to skip the books . I found Michael Kramer a heck of a lot more jarring in the early WoT audiobooks.
Marsters isn't the only one growing into the series, Butcher as well. I usually skip the first two, sometimes first three on a re-read (all re-reads are audiobooks).
I tend to just skip the first one. Though it is kind of funny when
Spoiler: Don't click if you haven't read book one.
Harry teleports and ends up arrested for indecent exposure after fighting a toad demon.
Meh, I tend to enjoy the little bits of foreshadowing in the first few books.
I stopped listening to the Dresden audio book because Marsters didn't have wny sarcasm or attitude in his voice at all, and I couldn't deal with a super-serious Dresden internal dialogue. Does that get better?
He does get better, definitely. Like I said, the initial narration doesn't bother me too much, as I feel I've heard worse But I do recognise that he gets better over time.
See, the first two books' narration doesn't really bother me - aside from Marsters not knowing how to pronounce a few things. (He definitely DOES get better, though!)
Murphy in the first two books, however, almost made me quit the series. Even on a re-read, knowing how awesome she becomes, I still hated her.
Murphy is still not one of my favourite characters. I have moments when I find her more tolerable than others, but in general, I don't mind the books where she's less involved
