Description

When an unknown someone shoots him and leaves him to die, Harry Dresden hopes he might be heading to a better place. Unfortunately being dead doesn't make Harry's life any easier.

Trapped between life and death, he learns that his friends are in serious trouble. Only by finding his murderer can he save his friends and move on - a feat that would be a lot easier if he had a body and access to his powers. Worse still are the malevolent shadows that roam Chicago, controlled by a dark entity that wants Harry to suffer even in death.

Now the late Harry Dresden will have to pull off the ultimate trick without using any magic - or face an eternity as just another lost soul....

Review For Ghost Story

Loved it! The narrator was brilliant and the story was the same great quality as the rest of the Dresden Files series.

great, but sounds like an echo chamber

the story, great, but James Marsters sounds like it was recorded in a concrete bunker the echo was so bad. don't know why though. the other books he has read sound fine.

Not the usual.

A different style compared to the previous books. It distracted me throughout. Definately worth reading.

Awsome

One of the best series I've had ever. Love the fact that James Marsters ( spike) reads it. Makes it all so much better.

still good

not as good as other dresden but still very enjoyable. the ending comes at you from a mile away, while the book has significantly less stakes then the previous book. I would still recommend it though as a fun ride and is very well read by james marsters.

With Jim Butcher's great writing, and James Marsters' colourful and immersive reading, I'm never disappointed.

Best thing I've ever seen a company willingly do

I listened to the previously recorded version and it was okay but Harry and Marsters are just one in the same. That is the Harry you want to spend time with.
When Audible re-recorded the book with James Marsters and then released it to fans for free - that is the most astounding thing I have seen a company / author ever do. Bravo! Way to encourage customer loyalty. This is really walking the talk.

AUDIBLE makes Fans #1

Any additional comments?

WOW! I liked this book. it was missing James Marsters but hey what are the chances that he would redo a book already done? and would I be willing to buy a book again. Audible impressed me with a yes and a no. It was redone and it was a thank you gift. now that is unheard of customer care. THANK YOU!

James Marsters IS THE BEST!

Any additional comments?

Thank you Audible! It was an extremely pleasant surprise when Audible notify me this book was re-recorded with James Marsters. I love the Dresden Files series but it's just not the same without James's narration.

Aubible - You Guys ROCK

THANK YOU SO MUCH. Having a series interrupted by a different reader is such an unpleasant experience and this one was the worst (not because the narrator was bad, just because James Marsters is so much a part of the Dresden Files). Thank you for listening and for giving up the new recording for free, I would have happily paid for it!

James Marsters is irreplaceable

Even though this audiobook has already been published with an experienced, skilled narrator, and that narration is OK, I chose to repurchase this Ghost Story because I enjoy James Marsters narration. I've enjoyed his work even when I had to buy them on CD. He is after all the voice of Harry Dresden, so it seemed pleasant to have this title in his voice.

But WOW!!

I had taken James Marsters skill for granted. I had not realized his ability to give a voice to such a broad range of characters, a voice which reflects the personality of the characters as each is written, and still voice an intelligent sense of the ridiculous even in the darkest parts of the story. Of course Jim Butcher had to write these characters clearly enough to give Mr. Marsters the material to work with, and Ghost Story is a pivotal novel in the Harry Dresden story, but even with material as good as this, the other narrator did not bring it to life the way James Marsters has. John Glover did a good job, its just that James Marsters is brilliant, and the contrast is amazing.

Sorry, gushing here, about the narrator, because the book has already been thoroughly reviewed. So if you've waited to listen to the audiobook until James Marsters could read it, good move. If you have already listened to the other narrator, its worth a credit or the cash to purchase this one too.

Thanks Audible!

Would you consider the audio edition of Ghost Story to be better than the print version?

Yes. James Marsters adds an additional dimension.

What did you like best about this story?

That James Marsters is the narrator instead of John Glover! Thanks Audible for re-recording this title with JM!
Aside from that, I liked that Harry is more of a detective in this story. Also, he has to deal with what happens to and with his friends in his absence. I didn't see the ending coming, but it totally fit!

Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes...all of his Harry Dresden as well as the Greyfriar trilogy. I personally think that Jim Butcher writes better books. I wouldn't have made it as far as I did with that trilogy if JM weren't the narrator, but that story just wasn't that good and there's only so much that JM could add.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

A number of moments because of what is going on with so many of the Scooby gang.

Any additional comments?

Again, thank you Audible for getting this re-recorded with Jim Marsters. The gaping hole in my collection is now complete!

Ghost Story - now with more substance

I've listened to both this version and the version that Glover narrated, Marsters IS Dresden, hands down. There is just something that he does when narrating this series, the inflection and tone of each phrase. The almost surreal quality that he brings to the table when describing flash backs or supernatural events makes Marsters the master at characterization and personalizing Butchers written word. Glover did well, but Marsters rocked this like a diamond boss. The book itself? Well, Stars and stones! It's DRESDEN! I think that anyone from Sidhe to human would agree that Butcher writes more than "just" contemporary fantasy. Butcher writes pure unadulterated transendentalism. So listen to it, you'll love it and you'll want to read or listen to every single one available.
