Engrossing story, loved-it
Dresden has got a lot of hard edges but very likable and you do find yourself rooting for him.
He definitely gives all the characters their own voice. I'm amazed at how he can pull of male and female voices and you don't even really notice it's the same narrator.
I'm late to pick up on this series but it's definitely worth checking out. I'm loving the story line.
I love to read. On average I read and/or listen to more than 100 books a year. Audible has been a fantastic addition to my life. Love it!
I have enjoyed these books. I like the narration and the snarky wit of the main characters. This is not a life changing series by any means, but it is a fun and easy time filler.
Love listening to books.
Another adventure for Harry Dresden. As before, Butcher does a great job leveraging every gumshoe trope in a way that makes for an interesting story without overdoing it. While the characters are flushing out nicely and expanding their depth from book one, Murphy is at risk of becoming too stereotypical. Her attitudes and actions bordered on unbelievable. It wasnt enough to stop me from going on to book three, but if it doesnt improve it does put the series at risk for me.
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.
