I have already listened to this book twice. You will hate to turn it off to sleep. You can trust Jim Butcher to tell a great tale. Harry Dresden is a "one of a kind character." The flavor of the world Harry lives in is as sweet as honey. You can only hold your breath while waiting to see what Harry will do next.
Harry Dresden is my favorite character. He is the same smart a$$ as I was as a kid. He feels the pain of his choices and is always trying to do the right thing. Yet he is still learning that life is hard and often requires personal sacrifice for those we love. Harry always steps up to the challenges of life.
I like the way he reads the Dresden series. He does a fine job.
I laughed often and found myself on the edge of my seat. You won't go wrong with this book.
If this is the first book of Harry Dresden you have read, you have a lot of fun ahead of you. I envy you the chance to read these books for the first time. I have reread many of the Dresden files. But, there is just one first time for each book. Have fun, I did !
You don't need this review.
If you read dresden, he's back to form in every way, including narrator
If you don't read dresden, you should, so go get the first one.
Harry and the gang are back in action. The last book was really just a bridge from Changes to Cold Days.
Really enjoyed it.
I've recommended the whole series!
I wouldn't want to give anything away.
James Marsters' voice is the voice of Harry Dresden!
The story was very good, and listening to James Martsters read the book made it feel just right.
Harry was just as obstinate as always, but is learning.
The Hunt chase scene.
Being Cold isn't always bad.
Great story, I can't wait for the next one! Very glad they brought back James Marsters as the narrator, just wasn't the Dresden Files without him.
I would definitely listen to cold days again, just as I have for all the Dresden Files books. A lot of people had problems with the last book, but this one comes out of the gate fast and doesn't let up. Old characters are reintroduced after Harry's "Hiatus" and all have been effected differently, making for some interesting character changes. Jim does an amazing job of keeping us on our toes, and this book is no exception. With an unbelievable twist at the end, any followers of the series realize at the same time that not only is the Dresden universe about to be changed forever, but that "S*&% just got real." Amazing listen as James Marsters reprises his role as the "True" voice of everyone's favorite wizard for hire, and does an fantastic job bringing everyone back to pre-ghost story Harry. I have a hard time choosing a favorite Dresden book, but this one is definitely in the running.
Marsters back at the helm is a great start. The story was great, changes in characters created by the events in "Ghost Story" where evident in some characters more than most, but where a welcome change. Harry's ever increasing power, and the interaction with as always, more beings from the fairy courts gives you the story structure you expect from Butcher. Though the book follows the typical Dresden formula, as usual Butcher has found a way to make a simple formula so much more than that. Knowing how things usually shake out, you're still kept guessing till the end, WHICH IS LIFE CHANGING., for anyone thats a fan of the series.
Marsters has done a fantastic job as Harry in the past, and became "The" definitive voice for Harry over the course of his work on the series. You can ask any fan of the audio books and they'll tell you Harry isn't Harry, unless its James Marsters. As usual James delivers at or above the bar, giving fans exactly what they missed in Ghost Story.
Look out Faerie, theres a new Knight in town.
If you've read the other Dresden Files books, buy this one, you wont be dissapointed. If you haven't read the Dresden files, you're a little late to the party, do yourself a favor and go buy Storm Front and learn what the rest of us already know. Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is probably the greatest thing to hit the fantasy scene since D&D.
Avid in Car listener who commutes about 3 hours per day. Audible keeps me sane in LA traffic.
First 2 chapters as Harry returns to the world
Harry and Thomas
And you thought it was over
Great return novel for Harry Dresden. Much like Sherlock Holmes, Harry comes back from the dead to meet the supernatural challenges head on. Unlike Holmes, Harry has a world of human foibles to contend with as well as a host of supernatural beings on his case. A wonderful restart to the series and kudos to the author for not ending the series and leaving us Dresden less.
this can't be the end!! can't wait for book 15 , what a great series, and i am glad that James was back to narrate this book he is Harry!
For all the fans of the Dresden Files that were disappointed by Ghost Story; fear not! Jim Butchers has out done himself this time and completely made up for Ghost Story tenfold. On top of that James Marsters has to be the most incredible narrator ever. I am a very avid audio book listener and he is my favorite narrator. He makes the story so dynamic that it feels more like a movie than a book. Cold Days is nonstop, action packed, Dresden goodness. If you are a fan of the Dresden Files, this listen will not disappoint. Enjoy!
