Yes I can "read" it at work. I work in manufacturing and reading at work helps with the monotony.
Mouse. I love dogs and yes a Fu Dog is a cross between a lion and a dog (sort of) but mouse is a very cool dog.
We will rock you and when they go to get Mouse.
All Hollows eve has new meaning.
It is wonderful to have James narrating again. His ability to change his voice from character to character brings depth to the story.
I have always loved Harry's strength of resolve when understanding right from wrong. As the saying goes the road to hell is paved with good intentions and Harry is doing his best to detour as much as possible from that road.
As Mab's Knight Harry has to take his wizards ability to out think people and bring it to a level where he has to out think things that live forever. The multilayer of plots within plots and lack of information keeps him on his toes. With this book he is learning to trust that other people can handle their part leaving him (barely) time to understand the pitcher as a whole.
Jim Butcher is a very visual writer and at several times I could see and hear the story unfolding on screen. I would love to see several movies made of several of the books as long as "they" did not change Harry's personality like they did for the T.V. show. I did like the show and it is what turned me onto the books but they did change Harry too much.
Just buy it!!!
GET ROCKED!!!! BOOM!!
Harry of course
Hell yeah it did! too good. That ending dude.. speechless
Why haven't you bought the book yet???
Cold days was a dramatic improvement over the last two books. Harry shows signs of growth in his mental, psychological, and magical capabilities. I wish Karen had more to do in the book.
James masters " is Harry Dresden". I can not imagine anyone else reading this book.
Having listened to all the books except for Ghost Story, (I just couldn't bring myself to hear another narrator), I felt like I had come home with Cold Days.
It was great to be back in Chicago with Harry and his gang. I love the foreshadowing in this story for future installments and can't wait to see how Harry manages to extricate himself from his role of winter knight.
James Marsters narration is the best, he is able to consistently imbue each character's voice with their own nuances making it a pleasure to listen to the story.
Hopefully I won't have to wait too long for the next installment of the series.
Cold Days was a hard hitting a fun ride , without making spoilers happen I can say that it was great to hear James doing narration again , he brings the series alive . The book opens up Dresden's new life as Mab's enforcer and starts the ball rolling to the Apocalyptic Trilogy that's coming up. You'll get answers - but not the ones you want to many questions , and see a lot of long lost faces. Give it (and all the Dresden Files) a shot , you will be glad you did !
Butcher fans who were patient through Ghost Story are well rewarded with Cold Days. Harry is back and in this novel he learns some very interesting things about his life and the world in which he lives. Now he just has to figure out what to do about it all…
James Marsters IS Harry Dresden; never try to replace him!
In Cold Days we see the direction Butcher said he was taking our wizarding detective after the events of Changes and the interlude that was Ghost Story.
I'd get more specific but as Dr. Song says *SPOILERS*
To the Newcomer:
Do not be dissuaded about jumping on now. This is the beginning of the second act and a perfect jumping on point. While there is a lot of history it is explained well and doesn't weight the story down.
The future of the books look bright to me.
Marsters is just pitch perfect on this recording and a delight to listen too.
Glad Marsters is back - he is Harry Dresden. I read rather than heard the previous bookbecause of the other narrator. Great story. I plan to listen a second time very soon
Harry Dresden (and Karen!)
It was engrossing
Have Marsters read book 13.
I don't know, I don't have the print version.
That it finally answers many questions, but leaves me with so many more.
He performs the book, not just reading words.
Laugh at times, worry for the characters I have grown so fond of.
One of the greatest series ever.
