There are aspects of the story, which I wish had gone other ways, but that's just because I am *THAT* involved in the universe that Jim Butcher has created. The audio version voiced by James Marsters continues to be as good as the writing. If you've liked the 14 audio books in this series before this, you'll continue to enjoy Cold Days.
I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!
This really is a must listen series. The series never gets old even if you binge listen to three books in a row. In this installment, the summer and winter ladies are out to save the world--or are they? Harry reunites with his posse and saves the world while introducing us to new foe. James Marsters rocks as always. Thank goodness he is back.
Dad, Dentist, Adventurer. Well... at least 2 of those.
He's the Winter Freaking Knight now. What more do you need to know. The Dresden files are packed with action and everything that happens has consequences, unlike most fantasy sci-fi.
I laugh out loud
I love all the characters but of course Harry is the best!
All the books Jim Butcher writes are very funny, grabs you, sits you down, & makes you pay attention to what the story.
Awesome! So glad to see that book 13 was a dismal fluke as Butcher is back in true form. Once again this installation has everything you would expect; familiar characters, Harry in another impossible situation, the pending ending of the world by mysterious forces... perfect!! This is why I love this series. Great plot twists and turns that ring true and bring in tons of elements from the previous books. Now that I'm finally caught up with the series I feel the pain of having to WAIT! It was nice to start the next as soon as I finished one.
In a heart beat
I love the story line and the way that each characters comes alive (but they don't each get chapters of back story)
When I think of Dresden I hear his voice. Great at giving each character a person voice (other narrators blend voice and it gets hard to understand who is talking)
I would love to but it is a long book.
Cold Days definitely ranks in the top 3 of all the audiobooks I have listened to so far. I love this series and I have to say that Jim Butcher is doing an awesome job of keeping Harry Dresden interesting, yet comfortable. We know what to expect from Harry. The surprise and excitement comes from the proverbial question, "how in the world is he gonna get outta this mess?!"
I like that Harry is growing, even in death, and so are the characters. As these characters experience life....and death....you see how these experiences impact them. It makes the characters feel real. It certainly makes you want to root for the home team...the good guys...Harry's crew!
I love Harry, no doubt. James Marsters gives Harry a nicely human persona that makes you wanna give him a hug....or slap him, especially on those really rough days.
This is a book that I wanted to listen to in several sittings. There is a lot to digest and I did not want to miss anything trying to speed through it. I have actually listened to it more than once and I have enjoyed the book each time.
I was afraid that Jim Butcher would allow this series to fall to the wayside when he began his new series. I dreaded that day coming when Mr. Butcher would decide to kill Harry Dresden off for good....or at least in a way that he is no longer reachable to us. Thank you Mr. Butcher for not totally killing off Harry and for refreshing this story line in a way that I never would have imagined. I am so looking forward to reading Skin!
James Marsters takes these books to a whole new level.
DemonReach and the story behind the island
The twist at the end
This is by far one of the best book series I have ever listened too.
Can't wait for the next installment of the Dresden Files. The writing is top notch with unexpected twists and turns and the narration is spot on. Truly entertaining!
I'm a country potter, gardener, flute player and tin tinker living with my husband, an electrical engineer & cabinet maker.
This is not my kind of story at all. I can't even remember how I got started. It might have been because of James Marsters' and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This is well written and full of similes. I love a good simile. It's not serious but it is fun and a great way to spend a summer working in the yard and traveling the underworld with Harry.
