Author Jim Butcher on narrating THE LAW

Author Jim Butcher takes a turn behind the mic and tells AudioFile listeners about the fun and challenges of narrating his new audio-first Dresden Files novella, THE LAW. Fans of the series will be happy that he did—our reviewer raves that Butcher's performance is an unqualified success.

"Why would I get involved in recording audio, you may ask. I got a little bit bored. I was stuck inside for a long time like everybody else and wanted to find some new things to do." —Author Jim Butcher

Author Jim Butcher made the right choice in performing his latest work himself. It's a masterpiece. He said that his usual narrator, James Marsters, has nothing to fear, but Butcher's first attempt at narration is an unqualified success. He has a great speaking voice and truly relates to his characters. The emotion he puts into the work comes across in the wide variety of characters, who include an elderly magician/lawyer, a stupidly stubborn antagonist, and various creatures that inhabit the world of wizard/private investigator Harry Dresden. The brief work is a delight from start to finish, and Butcher's youthful satisfaction comes across on every page. This may be Butcher's first attempt at performing his own work, but let’s hope it won't be his last.
