This audiobook was mind-bogglingly bad. Or at least it was until I realised that it's not supposed to be just a modern fantasy magical adventure, but also doubles as a slapstick black comedy. After I figured this out, I had a riot. It's genuinely funny, and even a little bit gripping.

The fabulous incompetence of the lead, Harry Dresden is excellent, together with some fine stereotypes (loved the trigger happy cops), and giggles over magiical nonsense.

It's well written and well read, but complete tosh. Give it a go. LoL.

Some good moments and funny (unintentional) slapstick. But: cliche ridden, mysogonistic, overblown, wooden characters, predictable.

I enjoyed the reading style, even the heavy breathing.

Simple, straightforward and well rounded. The best starter-book I've read. Well read by the author. Highly recommended.
