best audio book, and best narrator

Dresden files is the best series of books made for audio out there that I have found so far, and as I drive for a living and music puts me to sleep I have a huge library to chose from.

Mr Marsters unlike many narrators obviously has read the books before narrating them and enjoyed them, and this comes through as energy and emotion. Mr Marsters doesn't read these books, he performs them with great skill.

in short Dresden files rocks
Jim butcher rocks
and James marsters kicks backside.

more please.

Very listenable

OK, it's fantasy full of vampires, magic, and so on, but it's a good listen for adults as well as younger people, partly because of the excellent narration by James Marsters in which every character has his or her own voice.
