Fool Moon is a better book than Storm Front. The characters that make up the Dresden Files are still yet to completely form.
The story and surrounding characters aren't really referenced in any other book. Making this book for devoted fans of the Dresden files or those who want to know where Billy and the band of Werewolf sidekicks come from.
If you are thinking about starting on this series just skip to the next book. It has a hook that will never let you go.
I listen while on my bus commute - so I need to find books that are a good fit for listening while in a crowd.
Endearing Accessible Campy
I love the variety of creatures based on the werewolf myth.
I really love the performance. I didn't realize who James Marters was until I finished the book and its a plus knowing its Spike from Buffy. Love him!
In over your head with creatures from the Never Never?
This is my bus commute series and it is a perfect way to start my day!
Yes, excellent reading, great story and holds your attention the whole time!
The scene at the police station with the werewolf on the loose.
Hard to decide, James Marsters is the master of story tellers. He does it so well
I only listen to the book when I go out walking. Sometimes I purposely took an extra long route just so I could continue listening to the story
I'm already onto the next book in the series - keep em coming!
This book was an exhausting read, with the story jumping from one last-second rescue to the next. Some people like that. I don't. I want a reason to care about the characters before they get thrown to the wolves (quite literally, in this case). The narration is so spot-on that it at least made this book bearable, although (as with the last book) I still got tripped up by a few mispronounced words. That's really the producer's fault, and it's a shame that such a great narration was tainted by a lapse like that.
Suspense, action, humor!
Learning the varying forms of werewolves and then the twists in the plot were entrancing and kept me listening!
Once again, James Marster's has brought life and vividness to the character that Jim Butcher created in Harry Dresden. The entire cast and storyline are descriptive and Marsters does a great job with voice inflections that make Harry seem real as well as making Dresden's character even more in-depth within the story Butcher wrote. I love this series so much--can't wait to have the rest in my library!
Fool Moon: a howlingly, action-packed look at Wolf-meets-Magic!
This is a really good book! I really enjoyed the action and it kept my attention from beginning to end! One thing I would mention is that this book contains some material that may not be suitable for young children.
James Marsters, who seems to be well reviewed elsewhere, spends much of his time sucking and biting a cough drop during the reading. It's very distracting. It might be better to go with the print version.
This second book in the Dresden Files continues to establish the story and background of this character. The actual story is okay, but the characters make the heart and soul of this book series (for me at least).
Although I enjoy the Dresden series as a rule, this book left me cold. In Harry's battles with the werewolves, I felt that nearly the same scenario was being repeated over and over again. I lost interest in the outcome by a quarter of the way through, and only slogged on from stubbornness and the hope that something new and surprising would happen. Very disappointing.
I'd recommend for listening while doing another task, the plot was rather predictable and the characters one dimensional. The main character has the potential to be interesting and at times is but then goes into emotional and sentimental overload that is a turn off for me. Thee are references to another world/ the never never that I would like to hear more of.
Yes, I noticed in both Dresden books I can often hear Marsdens mouth opening like he is wetting it preparing to start talking. It's gross.
